I noticed that none of my midi controllers seem to work with a patch a build when I run it with the max/msp runtime. Everything works fine when I run it in the normal max/msp. Additionally, if I take the same patch, build a standalone app which creates .mxf file the midi controllers do work.
Before anyone asks, yes I checked the midi setup to make sure all the midi inputs were enabled.
definitely not a known bug or a limitation. We use a huge patch
(quintet.net) regularly and there are several spots in the program
where you can "learn" Midi-controls — these work reliably in the
software in Max and Runtime mode, so unfortunately your problem must
lay somewhere else. Unfortunately I have no idea what it might be, or
where to look..
Ok, next question, is there any advantage to operating in runtime mode over the standard Max? I was under the assumption that it was less CPU intensive but does it just lack the editing functionality because I could not find actual statement either way.
