I cannot seem to get any response in live coming out of the max4live device, not sure it is even recieving messages. this using the instructions on the other post, since I am a total newb, I have no idea
Which other post?
Are you using IanniX.als and “Simple MIDI example.nxscript“?
Are your MIDI ports named “iannix_out” (the input to M4L) and “iannix_in” (the output from M4L)?
