This is video 4 of a 14 part series on Music Theory, and shortcuts to writing music.

Midi Input Assistant includes 4 different Max for Live Devices. These devices are a Piano Keyboard, a Guitar Fretboard, A Grid Layout (that resembles a Push), and a Notation Device (a Swiss Army Knife of scale notation on a musical staff, frequency, sample, and timing conversions, etc)

If you’re new to music theory and want to understand how various instruments’ notes correlate to each other, this is the tool for you! It definitely taught me a thing or two.
