I know this isn't a totally maxmsp specific question.......but,
I use usb-midi on stage with my laptop (probably not the best idea anyway!!). If the cabe becomes unplugged, when plugging back in I have lost my midi connection with max or ableton etc, and have to restart to get it to work again. This of couse "on stage" is quite imbarissing.
Does anyone else suffer from this problem? Or has anyone developped a working system around it? (like maybe even a non usb device for laptops!)
many many thanks,
