noteout object problem

Jul 18 2010 | 10:34 am

i run a 2 GHz Intel Core Duo Mackbook, with an external audio interface M-Audio "Fast Track Pro", i’m using the trial version of MAx

i’m totally new to max, i was trying to follow the first tutorials but when i started using the MIDI tutorial patch i found this problem with "noteout" object:

after exactly 256 notes (made using an external MIDI keyboard or via Message(60 100 0)>Noteout as explained in the first Midi tutorial), noteout stops making notes via AU DSL Synth; i need to restart Max in order to have again notes out but always until 256. i’ve tried to make a simple patch by myself, instead of using the tutorial pathces, but the problem is the same

i’ve tried to find some information on the net but couldn’t see anything,so i’m posting here

thanks in advance

are you sending "note off" messages? after sending [60 100] send it a [60 0] to tell it you don’t want the pitch 60 anymore. alternatively, use the [makenote] object. it will generate note off messages for you.

that sounds right, probably you are hitting the polyphony limit in your sound card. Strange, though, if you’re inputting from a keyboard, you should be getting the noteoffs just fine. Try hooking up to a [kslider] in Polyphonic mode and see whether the highlighted keys become unhighlighted when you release them?

yeah the problem was that! i didn’t send the note off message.. about the keyboard, i was in error because i wasn’t sending messages to noteout but to midiout in the tutorial, so midiout got also the noteoff message.. i think that after reaching that polyphony limit the SD went nuts; after switching off and restart everything seems playing correctly..

thank you so much for the help! (and sorry for my english)
