Triggering Logic 9 channels with maxmsp?

    Apr 28 2013 | 7:20 pm
    Hi there, i'm new to max and I was wondering if I had say 5 individual tracks in Logic with audio/midi data and wanted to use max to trigger these (play and loop) and create a mini mixer in max is it possible? Basically the idea is that I can mute un mute in max and build a couple of effects also.
    Best Wishes

      What you describe would ideally be solved with ReWire using Max as master and Logic as slave. But unfortunately Logic can't run in slave mode. So you need to send midi time code from Max to Logic for triggering playback and send audio back from Logic to Max. Both can be done with IAC and Soundflower, but the setup is not simple and you have to deal with timing issues (latency).

      no worries, sounds a bit heavy for what im doing. I'll find another way round it all.
