oh, dear… it looks so simple but it is a nightmare on win (dunno for
osx). Sound is always disgusting, latency problems, midi loops and so
on… It depends on the audio connections your audio gear offers you.
With my RME, max doesn’t want to get back the midi output (played
through my default audio channels) with adoutput. The last time, i used
the analog outputs back to the inputs, all in max…

Under OSX, it is not possible to get the signal from the OS’ MIDI synth
(excepted if you use an audio routing software, like SoundFlower or
Jack – both are free).
But you can use a MIDI soundfont synth in Max/MSP, using [fluidsynth~]
or [fluid~], or whatever VST synth you like.
