How to use PS3 rockband drums on MAX MSP

HI I have created a patch so that I can use a MIDI keyboard to trigger drum samples at different velocities, but how can I replace the MIDI keyboard with PS3 Rock band drums? I have read another forum that is more about Xbox 360.

What drivers if any do I need and what command should I use? does notein do it or wouldit be something else?

Not sure about Rockband, but PS3 Band Hero drum kit works a treat in Max on a Mac with just the [hi] object. This probably doesn’t help you much, but I expect that they won’t be sending MIDI out so try [hi].

i’ve got it to work, but not to change velocity… any ideas?

Hmm, I think you’ll just get a 0 or 1 out of it (with BandHero one anyway). It’s like pressing the button on a games controller rather than getting velocity values for a note on a MIDI controller.
