Norns MIDI devices (max number)

OK … I think I’ve gone crazy … but I thought norns could only talk to four MIDI devices? The SYSTEM>DEVICES>MIDI list has 16.

Can scripts communicate with up to 16 MIDI devices?

yep! :slight_smile:

the limit has been 16 for the past year or so – it’s mentioned in the control + clock docs a few times, but perhaps needs to be more plainly stated?

for me, best scripting practice is to not assume any specific number of virtual ports are available and instead ask, eg:

for i = 1,#midi.vports do -- query all ports
  midi_device[i] = midi.connect(i) -- connect each device

Thanks. I’m just looking into some MIDI Thru capability for “pixels”.
