Alias8: Using M4L to send MIDI notes across different channels

edited September 2014 in Hardware

Hi there,

I'm trying to send a MIDI note to the Alias 8 using M4L's 'noteout' function.

I can only send messages to the current selected channel in Ableton's channel selector (see screenshot). Can I somehow override the setting with M4L so I can use one track to send messages to all 15 available channels on the Alias 8?


  • Not without resorting to some third-party externals or some serious voodoo.  Live channelizes MIDI, and the only way to get it out without that channelization is to send it directly from Max.  However, Max doesn't have this capability built-in, so you'd need to use a third party MIDI external.  If you're using 32-bit Live/Max, you can use Leigh Hunt's externals:

    There are also some solutions that use Java on Windows, but I haven't really experimented with them.  Hope this helps, let me know if you need more information.
