Data glove control of a vst in Max - logic rewire for user testing help!


    May 08 2018 | 1:13 pm
    Hi all,
    I have a project at the moment with the intension of researching New Instruments for Musical Expression. I've been working on a data glove project for a few months and am almost ready to wrap it up however I need some guidance as to where I am to go with it next.
    What I have at the moment is a patch that controls the macro parameters of Massive through the VST object. Using the pattrstorage object I have managed to store parameter indexes in the patch to then have them controlled by number boxes in the patch - in summary, I am controlling Massive through Max.
    My next move was to implement a gesture controller with Arduino using an accelerometer and flex sensor. A total of gestures are taught to the program and stored. Once the gesture is performed again, using Hidden Markov Models, the most likely gesture will increase the value of a parameter in Massive.
    Now I would like to do some user testing, which involves rewiring the patch into Logic. I have never tried to do this before and what I have attempted doesn't work. How do I get MIDI signals from Massive within the patch to play into Logic? Does it matter that the VST is being used in Max? How do I ensure that the parameter changes made via the gesture controller will be recorded into Logic?
    I have attached the patch for people to see if that helps. If anyone can help me on this, it would save my bacon!
