Help on midi keyboard triggering its own assigned bang

January 2, 2011 | 10:07 pm

Is there an object or method that allows each key on my midi keyboard to trigger its own assigned bang?

cheers, andy

Hi Andy
not too clear what you need, but if you use the [key] object to identify keyboard presses, use the [select] or [route] objects to pass the ASCII values to independent bangs…….is this what you want? For example [key]->[select 32]->[bang] will trigger only when you hit the spacebar.

Maybe I should have read your original post a little slower – oops my bad.

Use [select] in the same way; connect a [number] object to the right(?) outlet of [midiin] to see the midi note numbers; then set these as arguments to [select], eg [select 64 66 68 69 71 73 75 76].
