how do I parse input from the nanoKontrol?

September 21, 2010 | 2:47 pm

Hi, I’m new to max. I want to have the different sliders/knobs/buttons control different sliders within max, but I can’t seem to figure out how to do it. One post I read suggested looking at MIDItester under Extras, which I did, which indicates the different controls on the nano are outputting ints from 0-127 under different "num." How do I separate the input based on Num.? I saw one thread with a patch in it, but can’t seem to find it now, I don’t know if it was the right one or not.

Having a look at the tutorials is probably a good idea! MIDI basics would be a good start:

Yes, I’ve read through several of the tutorials, including the one you linked to, and they have not answered my question
EDIT: I mean I’ve read a couple of MIDI tutorials, the basics and the midiparse tutorial, along with many of the basic max tutorials

Knobs and sliders sending control-change MIDI can be routed using the [route] object; I assume you’ve looked at the [midiparse] helpfile. Did I understand your query ok? I’m not sure what ‘num’ is.
