These objects are a re-implementation of the standard Max MIDI objects using a cross-platform MIDI library (RtMidi). This means that you can use them in Max For Live devices to access the system MIDI ports in an unrestricted way. And…. you can get SysEx!

Only caveat is that on Windows, you have to disable any MIDI input/output port you want to use. If Ableton is trying to use the port at the same time the objects can’t connect to it. For this reason, I’ve added a status outlet to each object to indicate whether the port connection was successful or not. Other than this extra feature, the objects are feature-clones of the originals.

Hi,
Does the imp.midiin/out handle rt messages? midi clock?
If so where would one place the imp.midiin to view Live's rt messages?
Or, if this is not possible - if I were to generate clock messages, would imp.midiout transmit them - and if so - would they be sent global or on the midi channel specified.

Thanks,

Great. We can haz a MIDI device which sends teh delay compensated MIDI clocks? Live can’t do this now. I will pay $20 for such a device.

Which is great, but this is still useful to be able to access the system MIDI ports without having to route MIDI through Ableton Live. I just made a device which currently requires you to place it on a MIDI channel, then route the hardware MIDI to that channel (via Ableton Live MIDI preferences and channel monitor) on the MIDI track in order for it to work. With this external, I should be able to handle all of that self contained in the Max device and automatically. Drop the device in and it just works :)

Did these objects ever get an update? I quit using them after unreliable sysex messages, though these were long ones. Like 15000+ messages from an Elektron patch.
