I have a PD synth that I play with an external MIDI keyboard. I want to use libpd so I can make a nicer interface.
My problem is getting libpd to recognise any incoming MIDI. I've read conflicting stuff around the net like "libpd doesn't support MIDI" or "libpd supports only MIDIIN" etc.
I don't need to send MIDI from libpd to anywhere else, just need it to notice incoming MIDI. Can anyone help?
I have used a message of the form [;pd midi-dialog .........[ to make sure the correct MIDI interface is set up. It works in regular PD but not in libpd.
Specifically I am using puredatap5, the libpd library for Processing.
