Max patch for custom midi control with PUSH

May 18, 2014 | 1:10 pm

Hi All

Years ago I built myself an 8 track midi mixing desk which is still the best controller I have – 4 pots per channel + 5 buttons and a fader, from the protocol (see here –

Its awesome. Anyway I always used to hard map this to Ableton for my 8 tracks and then midi map all my pots etc.

I have bought PUSH and I would love to be able to retain the use of my controller in tandem with PUSH. I am wondering whether M4L would give me the tools to be able to follow PUSH’s 8 Channel grid and control the 8 Channels within that bracket and so my MIDI controller works relative to the position of PUSH – so that strip 1 is always the volume and EQ’s of channel 1 and so forth. So I could work on bigger projects and always have the MIDI desk setup. I have read and been learning about M4L but I want to check if someone thinks my plan is feasible within M4L as I am unclear – and any pointers would be hugely appreciated. I know there’s lots to learn, I guess I just want to find out if its even worth exploring and if someone might be able to point me in the right direction.

Many Thanks

Yep it’s quite simply doable. You need to monitor the "red box".
