first, look at the midi tutorials to get the basic functionality to get midi notes working.

then, look up the 'send' and 'receive' objects in max help. basically you pack the note up and send it to another patch, that picks it up with a 'receive' object. you will need two patches, one to transmit notes and another to receive notes.

Or you could just create your M4L device on one track an then on another trakc select the midi in from the previous track. This is the Live method, instead of the Max method.

So, I need to first make a patch, in front of say, Operator, just to be able to send midi to a device later in the chain
