MIDI Note Display

May 19, 2009 | 8:58 pm

Hey-
I’m pretty new to max, but I put together this patch to display note names of MIDI note values. I know there is a better way to do this, but I wanted to do it my way first and then learn the better way…Everything is in the guts subpatch. This probably looks ridiculous to an experienced max user. Thanks for the advice.. !

If you just want to display the values, you can simply use a number box! One of the settings in the number box is its display type.

– Pasted Max Patch, click to expand. –

If you wanted to store the data as text, I would recommend learning about the coll object, which will store data with an associated index. It can be fun to do it the hard way though!

On the contrary, I’m sure you learned something by doing it the hard way.

the hard way is using an lcd to display the note name
and find out that "G#3" won´t print for a reason you dont know.

Does anyone know of a list of musical scales in Midi Values?

Check the patch called "scaler.maxpat" in the examples folder -> max-tricks -> notes-and-pitch. Double click the coll object to find a list of different scales in MIDI number format that correspond to the scales in the umenu for choosing scales.
