[Solved] MACos Cubase send midi to another app

Postby vector » Sun Oct 14, 2018 5:15 am

Hi Guys,
Im trying to get a MACos 10.13 running cubase to talk(send midi notes) to another app(QLCplus DMX lighting controller) running on the same machine.

On my linux box I open muse or musescore or a softsynth, I then open qlcplus and (I guess thru Jack) QLC 'sees' muse as a midi input device. I click connect and bingo muse can send midi notes into QLC+. No cable or external stuff required.

I can t work out what to do in MAC to create the same link. I can point cubase to an external (usb-midi cable) And using midi thru on a keyboard send it back to QLC+ midi in<->USB). But I should be able to do it all 'internally'.
Various VST and softsynths show up in Cubase and can be selected to send the midi to but not QLC. And QLC can see many input devices but nuthing shows up from cubase.

Im not a MAC person, I was at a friends house and cant replicate the workflow I use on linux.

any ideas?

I’m not a mac owner but internet searching shows apparently there is an Audio MIDI setup application.

And there is an IAC driver for inter app communication
