I have a demo version (not yet registered) on the PC.
I’m trying to recieve MIDI from Live, process it, and send it back.
I know I must be doing something dumb and I feel stupid for asking (i searched the forums and google but found no answer, it seems like it just works normally)… was there an optional install process or something that I failed to do to install the max/msp virtual midi ports?
I use MIDI Yoke in order to get MIDI signals to send between programs.
I havn’t implemented it with MaxMSP 5 yet but works wonders in communicating with GuitarPro 5, Reason and Ableton Live. It just creates several Virtual MIDI connections (about 9 or 10 in fact) which you can route to your programs. I will try it out as I have just reinstalled MIDI Yoke again (XP version will work on Vista but not sure if it will work on Windows 7).
You can find it on the first search result of Google when you type in Midi Yoke.
Hope this helps
PS. If it works all you need to do is send the audio from live to Max through one channel and then send it back through another channel. This may mean that you have more channels in use than you would just bouncing it back to the same channel. I shall do some experimenting later when I have some time.
