1) Is it posible to convert midi to keystrokes on max ?

2) can we send the generated keystrokes to specific applications ?

Im trying to use wii to control ableton live :) …

im sure there must be a simple solution to that.

Live speaks rewire yes? I’ve seen posts about a Wii object floating about on the list. That should give you data you can send to the rewire object which will talk to Live. There are really good tutorials on the Cycling site about rewire…in addition to what’s in the docs. You can also turn MIDI data into ASCII data (itoa) but I doubt that will be efficient in this case.

1) – no, not in the way you mean
2) – no, or at least not very easily.

What’s missing in MIDI control?

Also there are standard solutions like MIDI translator for PC and Control Aid for Mac.
