Re: SoftStep Nav Keys


Sounds interesting :)

I am on MacOS using Live9 - would your Max/MSP construct allow me to program the N/E/S/W pads to control Next or Prev Loop via a single pair of MIDI Note On/Off messages? Say, East and West would be Next and Prev Loop, and North and South could be Next and Previous <whatever I like> ?

Currently the best I can get with Notes is still full of pressure data, lots of repeated messages. I just want a single Note On and Note Off when I press those pads.

evil purposes?

Yes, I made a Max patch to do that. Of course its done for my own purposes, especially the sensitivity of all the pressure points was not god for controlling from a sitting position. The Navigation keys still need a bit more force than I would like it...

As all of the buttons are actually pressure sensors (the big ones even quad sensors), you need to set a threshold if you want a switch.

Depending on your operating system I could adapt my patch for your needs. On Mac its trivial, on PC I think you need something like midiyoke to route the translated Midi to your application...
