higher resolution midi ctrl

Hello,
Im using midi to control some bits in my project. Midi range goes from 0 to 127 as you all know.
Is there any way to create a patch that can increase this range to allow a smooth control between number like 0 to 1027 without jumping past certain numbers.

Does this make sense?

For example Mackie use there HUI protocol to do this with the Universal Controller.

Hi

It depends on your Midi controller. If you can make it put out pitch bend messages then it is possible.
A normal control message is 7 bit = 0-127 but the the Pitch bend control for example uses both LSB and MSB (Least and most significant byte) which means 2×7 bit = 0-16383.
Then use the object xbendin.

Thx, il look into it. I might have to make something using key on off messages.

If your controller sends high resolution values it should be possible, have a look at my ctl.in, which has a hires mode…
Basically those controllers send two bytes of data with two controller numbers, you just have to interpret them correctly…
