[Funny, just wrote this in response to another question...maybe this 
should go in a manual somewhere ;-) ]

On OSX, you must open the "Audio MIDI Setup" application to get MIDI 
in/out of PD. Once you have done that, you can use the MIDI Settings 
menu in PD to route MIDI in and out from/to your various devices. 
Haven't tried routing MIDI from PD to Live, but I imagine that if you 
select the built-in OSX MIDI "IAC" router as output in PD and input in 
Live, you'll get something working pretty quick.
