MACINTOSH, SYSTEM, HARDWARE, ETC SETUP



MIDI Setup:  Under the object menu, open the Midi Setup.  Although your specific instruments will vary, you need to know one thing – all the notein and noteout (as well as ctlin, ctlout, pgmin and pgmout, etc.) objects are configured for the “a” abbreviation, so you must so designate the appropriate synthesizer (s) accordingly in the MIDI Setup in MAX/MSP 5.


DSP setting:  Under the options menu, pull down the DSP status.  Make sure that the Scheduler in Overdrive is checked.  This will greatly enhance the timing of MIDI events.
