Bear with me, Im a n00b…
Is it possible to use my computer keyboard to trigger MIDI notes?
I can capture the key info (ASCII) just fine, but am having difficulty understanding how to convert that to MIDI…
Update: I figured out one way to do this, but im wondering if there are any more optimal workflows.
I connected a Key Object>Number Box>Select + argument (ASCII equivalent of certain keyboard presses)>button (so I can see when they are triggered)>message with MIDI equivalent>Makenote with velocity and duration set>Noteout.
If you’re on Mac you can use MIDIkeys: http://www.manyetas.com/creed/midikeys.html
Sure there’s a PC equivalent
what you are doing is the correct method, yes.
look at Extras menu > KeyMIDI example
if you take [key] through [itoa] you can then use "sel q w e r t y" etc. instead of the numbers.
Check out this thread for a simple keyboard to midi abstraction and the helpfile.
wow. great feedback! Thanks everyone.
