Note API changes for Live 11

  • Live Versions: 11
  • Operating System: All

The Max for Live API has been updated to support and allow access to new MIDI note features in Live 11: MPE, probability, velocity deviation, and release velocity.

The old Note Access API is still available, however if you try to use it, or open a Max for Live device created with it, you will see a warning in the Max Console Window that you are using an older method.

If you load a Max for Live device in Live that uses the old API to remove notes, you will also see a popup explaining that additional note data may be lost. You can proceed to use the device if needed.
