[vst~] and midi out via [midiparse] in Max6 on OSX - unusable ...

    Feb 21 2014 | 10:25 am
    I sometimes like to use [vst~] filled with a sequencer (Geist/Guru/whatever) to trigger things in MAX 5. The flow seems to be mixed up in Max 6; the note stream (note, velocity) coming out of the object is totally messy. Notes are send as velocity numbers and vice versa, but totally arbitrary. Or they are not coming trough at all ...
    I tried the [unpack] and [unjoin]. It is all the same.
    Is this known? Are there recipes how to deal with that?

      In my experience midi output from [vst~] did never work properly on OS X, even with Max 5. For example, when using 'Spiral' from Reaktor I get only monophonic output (no chords). So I'm not surprised about issues in Max 6.
      PS. Unfortunately, sending a bug report seems problematic since 3rd party software is involved.
