Midi to keystroke just via Max For Live

Greetings all,

I know this has been covered in topics past, like this one:

http://cycling74.com/forums/topic.php?id=8542 ,

but I’m not sure, with the introduction of Max For Live, if achieving a keystroke via Midi input within a Max For Live patch is possible. I’m relatively new at Max but a pretty heavy Live user. I just want one of my midi notes to be able to convert into the command-U (quantize) function. I’m using a mac

I know Bome Translator can do this, but I’m not sure I want to pay $81 to do one relatively simple thing, considering I already have Max For Live at my disposal. midiStroke crashes due to the fact that I have duplicate midi divices. OSCulator seems to only recognize one ‘note’ per midi device (!), not individual notes.

any assistance or guidance here would be greatly appreciated.

There is a java external at http://maxobjects.com/?PHPSESSID=856c517a87a8be116c88e1238888f99a&request=ring_keyPress&operateur=AND&id_format=0&id_plateforme=0.

It works for Windows. Helas it only works when the Live Window has focus. I’m still looking for a way to send keystrokes to a named Windows, without the need for focus.

i’m also complaining that i’m missing important features of bomes in max generally. mostly to address the mouse for movement and clicking.
(outside of max windows)

i’m intensively looking for mouse and keyboard externals for pc.

found the pupdate msg to max. so it’s possible to move the mouse cursor around. why they didn’t implement the feature to send mouse button up/down?
i don’t get it.
