MIDI Input in Ableton Live
This example shows how to listen to a specific MIDI CC in Max for Live. Implementing MIDI reception for Max for Live is a little different from implementing it for straight ol’ Max. Instead of using, for example, the ctlin object, we need to use midiin, and then use midiselect to look for exactly what we want. Also, we need to make sure our plug-in is in a Live MIDI track, and that the MIDI monitoring is set to IN.
