FoxDot with ableton?

hi all,
(new here so my uneducated questions will be primitive!)

What is the ‘best’ or current way to use foxdot with ableton?
Is it just the midi link? (Im not sure how you sync though)
Or is there some other cool way? Maybe via some maxlive trick?

Thanks

I haven’t seen anyone use FoxDot with Ableton but you can send MIDI out via SuperCollider, which you might be able to route to Ableton.

Hi,
I tried a bit but I get this error on a newly formatted Mac:

p1 >> MidiOut([0,1,2,3], channel = 1)

FoxDot.midi(1)

MIDIEndPoint(“Scarlett 2i4 USB”, “Scarlett 2i4 USB”)
MIDI Destinations:

MIDIEndPoint(“Maschine 2 Virtual Input”, “Maschine 2 Virtual Input”)
Sending FoxDot MIDI messages to Maschine 2 Virtual Input

Any ideas?
thanks

That’s a SuperCollider issue I think and, unfortunately, I have no idea how to address it. Maybe worth asking something in the toplap chat app?
