I wanted to make a simple packaged instrument that I can drop into an abelton rack and will work as an external instrument and have dials and sliders setup that mimic the UI of the actual hardware, but allow me to automate and focus on just the screen.
I have an abelton external instrument dropped in, with midi out and audio in, that works a treat. Now I have a list of all the CC's the instrument can accept. My idea was to make a simple m4l patch that has a series of of live dials and sliders that output midi CC and can be automated and controlled in ableton.
But I'm having the darnest time getting midi CC data out, is there a simple example available anywhere, or could someone maybe give me a gentle shove in the right direction.
