Mapping MASCHINE to matrixcntrl??

Evening

Have built a 16 step sequencer with matrixcntrl, I’m trying to map the 16 pads of a Maschine so that they switch the cells on and off but can’t figure out how to do it, can anyone help please?

Thanks

I can post a patch due to being at work, but i would check out the ‘notein’ ‘ctrlin’ and ‘select’ objects,
also to select a position in the matrix the messages going in are in the format, 1 1 1 (column, row, on/off). e.g 4th coloum, 3rd row, on, = 4 3 1 and 4th coloum, 3rd row, off = 4 3 0.

I will try and post a patch around dinnertime for you, its easy then trying to type and explain :p

Regards,

Oli

Here you go, had to do it quick on my lunch so haven’t fully commented it.

If you don’t get it or it doesn’t work as you want it to let me know.

Oli

Hi Oli

thanks for that, have modified it slightly so that the pads move along the columns rather than down the rows, however when I move along to the next column the cell that I have previously switched on, gets switched off, is there any way of the cells being independent of one another?

Thanks again really appreciate your help.

In the matrix inspector there is a check box called ‘one non zero per…..’ uncheck them and you can have multiple buttons on columns and rows.
