I’ve searched the forums, but I can’t quite seem to find anybody who has the same problem as me, so I’m just assuming I’m overlooking something incredibly obvious.
When using [noteout], I would like to automatically set the port to "from MaxMSP". Now, in the documentation it says you can use the letters a-z to do this, but this doesn’t seem to do the right thing for me…
I also tried setting it automatically with [midiinfo] but this doesn’t seem to change anything either. Noteout always defaults to the internal AU DLS Synth.
Here’s an example patch.

You should be able to [loadbang] a "from MaxMSP 1" message to [noteout] as this is what the [umenu] is sending when you generate a list of devices with [midiinfo].
That’s what I thought as well but for some reason it will still send to the internal synth…
What do the abbreviations (optional arguments in [noteout]) actually stand for? What would the abbreviation of the internal synth for example be?
[loadmess port "from MaxMSP 1"]
