Re: Live's MIDI resolution is only 96 ppqn.

All I know is I imported a sequence into Ableton with a 960 ppqn, then exported it back out, and now it is at a 96 ppqn resolution. That much can be repeatedly proven, if you read over the results that I got. Now you could say that it may have something to do with the importing / exporting function ...

Re: Live's MIDI resolution is only 96 ppqn.

(monitor think you're mistaken. You have Max for Live. Make a [transport] object and monitor the PPQ out the fourth outlet and you will see a resolution of 480. Thanks for the tip, I was thinking of doing something like that.. I have been thinking up ways to get around this by playing sequences dire...

Re: Live's MIDI resolution is only 96 ppqn.

If I found out that I was wrong about this I'd be far from embarrassed, I'd be ecstatic.

Please somebody prove me wrong !

You may be able to draw notes in at 4208.xxx ppqn, but it probably rounds it off, there is no way you could tell just by hearing at that resolution, anyways.

Re: Live's MIDI resolution is only 96 ppqn.

I know, I used to use Studio Vision too.. :) I thought that Live's rate would be 480, or at the least 240, but I had to check it because my sequences were getting a different feel in Live than in Logic.. , more "square" if that makes sense.. I'm afraid that it is 96. Anyone with Logic can repeat the...

Higher Export MIDI file resolution than the current 96 ppqn.

Able to export MIDI files in a higher resolution that 96 ppqn.

96 ppqn seems to be used when exporting MIDI from Live.

here's a link to a related thread:

Live's Export MIDI File resolution is 96 ppqn.

NOTE: This message has been updated to show some new developments.. namely, that when using the MIDI file export command in Live, it outputs a MIDI file at 96 ppqn. At first I thought that the resolution in general was 96, but gladly, I was wrong.. This thread shows the original messages and how we ...

Re: Automated MIDI file import?

thanks for the help.. that might work for what I want to do.. the only thing that I wondering about is how to preserve the timing of the original sequence, since I work a lot with fine-grained timings, at the tick level as opposed to the 16-note level like a step-sequencer would.. In the file that c...

Automated MIDI file import?

I have an algorithmic composition environment that I'm building in Ruby, which can also generate MIDI files on the fly. Using the ajm.ruby object, I can have a Ruby interpreter inside Max, which I use for smaller specified tasks.. but I'm also running the Ruby environment from TextMate and I'm able ...

Re: The Ability for Suite Instruments to Load Tuning Files

An absolute must ! I am so frustrated when a modern instrument doesn't support microtuning. It pretty much means I can't use it, since I prefer just intonation... most of the tracks that really move me aren't in equal temperament... I just upgraded to Suite 8 and I'm really disappointed.. Please fix...

"splice" list of integers into a pack object

Hi, I'm using a pack object to receive and bundle parameters to send to a Ruby interpreter (mxj ajm.ruby object) in the form of a function that it understands, with parameters supplied by other parts of the Max patch, which get combined with the function in the pack object. This has been working gre...

data connections from one M4L instance to another

Hi, I'm working with MIDI note generators, and I'd like to pass information (such as integer lists) from one M4L MIDI instrument to the next one in a chain.. Right now I can only figure out how to pass MIDI information.. as that happens automatically.. I tried using the Max inputs and outputs, but t...

Re: VERY disappointed with the implementation

Live's instruments are not implemented in Max/MSP... that would entail them having to create other versions of every instrument to run inside of Max, which would be an almost infinite amount of work, which wouldn't even sound the same anyways ! Live gives you access to every controller, and instance...
