VSTinstruments in vst~ doesn't respond to MIDI messages.

Jan 21 2011 | 11:18 am

I'm tring to sound VSTinstruments with vst~.
But though sending MIDI message(note number and velocity) from makenote, vst~ doesn't respond.

How can it work?

Please give me the solution.

You should put a midiformat after the makenote.

Thank you for your advice.
I tried to put a midiformat,but it doesn't work…

Max window show the message "program 0 outside effect's range". What's this meaning?

Check the help file for vst~ -and Check midi tutorial 2
‘midievent’ is correct but you need to add 144 ‘status/command byte which tells it that its a midi note before note info. Also your makenote has no duration set.

I added 144 after "midievent"message and then the sound appeard.
I’m going to see midi Tutorial 2 from now on.

Thank you very much!
