OS X: External Midi Devices created in Audio/Midi Setup do not appear in Live

In OS X's Audio/Midi setup utility i've created one device for each my the external synthesizers that support MIDI, in order to have MIDI outs with the right name (e.g. Juno106 instead of Midisport Port A, etc), but these do not appear in Live's MIDI devices window pane. Any workaround for this?

    Moulinex is right. This is a bug in Abbleton Live.

    The names for MIDI devices as typed into the Apple app: 'Audio/ Midi Configuration' don't show up in Abbleton Live (however they do in Logic and Cubase...).

    In Live; you can see the MIDI device itself (AMT8 Unitor or Midex 8 Steinberg etc. etc) with the port number (1 - 8), but again: without the names for the MIDI hardware...

    Always! you can send midi to any third party app, such as the IAC driver, then hook the IAC driver from your midi and audio preferences in OSX to each respective synth.
