Hello,

Sorry for this newbie question.

After sequencing my midi sequence, and writing (saving) it to the hard drive, I always get a piano sound for my midi files when playing them for example with quicktimes, and not the ones i have in my program changes...

I would like to know how i get max to save my program changes on the midi file saved on the hard drive, so i get different sounds for the diferent sequences.

The piano sound is midi program 1 for the default instrument on OSX. It's common if you aren't loading anything by default.

Look into Loadbang, Bang, and number boxes. Bang is the function to cause a number (say from a numeric value box) to be loaded as a parameter to a function, such as the midiout channel parameter, or the instrument parameter. Loadbang will do this for you upon loading the patch.

Thank you for your reply.

I still didn't managed to solve my problem, I have a midiformat recieving the note in (via a pack), a pgmin and number box conected to my program change, and a bendin with a nubmer box on the pitch bend. When I record the sequence, everything seems to work properly, I get the pitch bend and what I played on my midi file, but the program change remains always the piano sound.
I think it might be a problem of my selcted drivers.
If i play the sequence on the max/msp it loads the correct program, but not on other programs like quicktime for example.

Thank you again

That's because Max doesn't embed the program changes in the sequence stream. Your solution is to leave Max running when you play the sequence under a different program, or you will need to embed the program change and channel information in the sequence data itself.
