Getting MIDI-messages from external MIDI-devices
into Director for PC.
(Although I´m a MAC-girl, I have to solve this problem for a project which is running under Win NT.)
some more details about what I am interested
First I searched for already existing informations.
I found alot in the archive of Direct-L (www.mcli.dist.maricopa.edu/director/digest/) and I also got alot of tips by private mails from the people of this list. Thanks alot for all your help!
So what´s listed here are all the possibilities (or at least the one that I found), even when they are not the right solution, but maybe interesting in case of MIDI & Director generally...
I found 2 great possibilities to get MIDI-messages
into Director. And I tell you something: completely different solutions
than listed above!
ActiveX - first touch
I have to mention, I didn´t know anything
about the ActiveX technology till this moment (doesn´t exist on MAC
Test 1: Note-ON - Midi-IN
Test 2: Going on...
I went on with displaying the values visually,
and later sending something out too.
I made the same tests with the SequenceXtra. Same results: works perfect.
But I really have to tell: when working with
this Xtra it is very sad, only to send or get some small Midi-datas.
In fact I didn´t test any of the great possibilities of sequencing.
