Controlling Macro Knobs In Sequence

    Mar 16 2013 | 11:44 pm
    Hi. I am very new to m4l and I was wondering if this were possible. I would like to have a knob or slider that can control ableton macro controller knobs in sequence. So increments 0-127 would control macro 1 and then if the max knob can push into high increments I would like it to take over macro knob 2 from 128 upwards and so forth across multiple macro controllers.
    So step 128 on the max controller would begin controlling lives macro knob 2 at 0.

      It's possible. You need a master knob/slider with value range 0-1023. Apply [/ 128] -> [+ 1] to get the macro number (which is also the device parameter number), and use [% 128] to get the macro value.

      Thank you for this. Its my very first time trying to build anything in max and I've not yet delved into all of the tutorials. I have figured out how to add the dial and set the range in the inspector but as basic as this may be, I am not sure how the rest is done. Would you be willing to explain that process to total utter noob? I plan to begin this week going through max tutorials and learning the basics but I would love to be able to get this controller working in the meantime. Thanks again.
