send midi from max effect to another and/or multiple midi tracks in the set?

iam building a very simple step sequencer and ild like to group a bunch of different instruments together. but trigger all the different instruments with just the onc instance of my step-seq. is this possible?

maybe a umenu to select "Midi to"…

thank you very much

This can easily be done with routing in Live.

If your sequencer is on track 1, put your instruments on tracks 2,3,..
and choose track 1 as input.

yeah but in this case the step seq would send every step to every instrument.
this would cause messy sounds.

i tried this i though maybe you get choose the instrument from "midi from" and then the channel.. lets say battery gets midi in from stepseq; channel 1 and an impulse gets midi in from channel 2..

well it does work. but its anoying work to set the instruments up everytime.. lets say impulse plays a kick on C3, then you gotta look that there arent any samples on C3 in all the other instruments

True. Live doesn’t support channel separation for internal midi routing.

But there is no other way to send midi from a M4L device across tracks.

The only workaround would be using send/receive for transmitting midi.
But unfortunately it doesn’t ensure accurate timing.
