Very Basic MIDI Handling (newbie question)

    Dec 16 2009 | 6:05 pm
    Sorry for my bad english and my stupid question as well. I'm completely new to Max, toying with the demo version (I bought M4L and wish to develop my own patches) and here is my question : I'm trying to build a very simple patch to bring a note out of Live playing my MIDI keyboard (using a cycle~ object). I've been trying a few things, but I simply can't handle how to stop the sound when a note-off signal comes from my keyboard. The only thing I can do is play another note, which stops the former one, but if i release the key, this note keeps playing.
    If anyone can help me it would be much appreciated !
    Thanks in advance...

      Well, I had a look at those tutorials but unfortunately couldn't download the ddg object (which seems to help a lot). Bad link ? Thanks anyway Jirko.

      look inside the m4l-help folder, it should be there.

      Your English is great and your question is not stupid! :)
      [notein] [noteout] [makenote] (will handle note-offs) [stripnote] etc...
      always good to have an All Notes Off:
      send a "1" to [ctlout 123 5] where 5 is the MIDI channel, for example. Use [key] to tie it to "esc" or somesuch.
