Hello all,

i did a little step in my configuration.
I started msDrivers, after I started FS, but in the output slots I see only QuickTime GM Synth, but I should expect FS too... is it correct? Now, if I open AUDIO/MIDI setup, it scans for any MIDI device and it founds MIDISHARE. Now? What's the next step? :-)

I know this question is really silly, but I don't know how to proceed.

Then in msDrivers, I have in the INPUT SLOTS only IAC BUS 1: IAC Driver and in the output slots QuickTime GM Synth and IAC BUS 1: IAC Driver.

I think I should connect IAC BUS 1 (from INPUT SLOTS) to FS (from OUTPUT SLOTS), but as I said before, I see no FS in OUTPUT SLOTS.

You're trying to do :

Miid Application ==> IAC ==> MidiShare/FS, OK?

Thus in msDrivers connect IAC BUS 1 (from INPUT SLOTS) to port 0 in the matrix. Close msDrivers to save this new state.

All Midi messages coming from t IAC BUS 1 will be "routed" to MidiShare port 0. By default MidiShare/FS is already setup to receive from its input on any MidiShare port (i think..) or at least on port O.

Thus it should work.

MidiShare does not have any Inter application Midi routing capabilititie on Mac OSX.

But you can use the CoreMidi Inter application Midi routing capabilititie. On Panther there is an IAC driver in Audio/Midi setup. On Jaguar you can find programs for that (like MidiPipe)

Basically you use MidiShare with its CoreMidi driver (the msMidiDriver that is installed by default). Using the MidiShare tool msDrivers, you can do a connection between MidiShare ports and CoreMidi devices. The you can route Midi output form the CoreMidi application in the the MidiShare/Fluidsynth component.

If I understand you correctly, you'd like to use FS as a client for Quicktime or iTunes? So you'd like FS to exchange MIDI data with Quicktime?
In this scenario then, the CoreMidi application would be Quicktime,

I don't think you can have Quicktime or iTunes deliver Midi as CoreMidi messages.

One need a MidiFile player application to send CoreMidi messages and connect it using IAC to MidiShare/Fluidsynth component


I presume and the MidiShare/Fluidsynth component would be its client.

Stéphane, any ideas on this one?
