i’m building a custom handler in max4live for my td20. the drum brain uses aftertouch to send the cymbal choke messages. i have a max midi selector (lifted from the example from the help) within a max midi effect in a live track — it is receiving notes and cc values just fine, but poly aftertouch is ignored. i’ve set the aftertouch attribute to 1 in the midi selector object.
using midi monitor (os x), i can see that the machine is indeed receiving the aftertouch data. live is ignoring it or filtering it out, or does not yet have a mechanism for passing to m4l devices.
anyone else encountering this, or have thoughts on resolution? i know i can make a max patch that floats outside of live that intercepts and translates the aftertouch to cc, etc. and pass to live, but this is not very elegant.
thanks hans, i’ll see if that fits in the setup. i do also have max 5 standalone, so most likely i will use that to intercept/translate the aftertouch into something else, but if that fails i’ll try your java driver.
