How can i get Midi Signals from a Musician using Ableton on his Machine into my Machine for controling my Patch.
Thx in advance.
you need to set your midi settings in pd's menu, and then you can use the pd objects [notein] [ctlin] to get your basic midi information.
Hey. Thx. But I was wondering about the Hardware Point of View. How do i get Midi Signals from a Computer into my Computer....do i have to connect the two systems over a midi keyboard for example. I hope i am not too confusing. Its more a basic understanding of how Midi works which i am lacking.....
One way is to have midi interfaces on both computers and connect them with a midi cable.
The other way would be to send the midi messages through a network, here i think the easiest way is to pack them to osc. But I'm not sure.
Neither way is really convenient.
I'm not sure how it was done,..
... but, for what it is worth, I have seen a performance by three artists, individually using Max/Msp/Jitter, but also at the same time sending signals and cues to each other via WiFi.
Good luck, and keep well ~ Shankar
OSC is the way to go. You'll have to have a transmitter, written in pd on your friends machine, then put a receiver in your patch.
I know it's an old post but here are my two cents.
I found a blog post the other day and it will be very helpful for future use
There is a tiny patch to show you how you can connect two computers with OSC
