allow me to elaborate. I want to turn 4 buttons on a controller into eight. i think i can do this by using 'combos, i.e two buttons being struck at once.
i need a system that will allow me to monitor if one button has been pressed and allow that bang through, but if two have been pressed together (or within a tight time frame) push a different bang though to a different part of the patch
What kind of information does the buttons send ? If it send a controller number with velocity 127 when pressed and velocity 0 when depressed it should be quite easy. You would use a select 127 and a select 0 and use an == operator to check wether 2 controllers are at the same value or something along those lines.
it is a gamespad, and the buttons are a simple 1 or 0.
i have deviced a method of evaluating wether or not one button is being pressed, and if so output its bang, but at the moment, if both buttons are pressed all it does is block the individual bang, not output one of its own.
