This seems like a simple problem but I haven't found much info about it out there, so I'm hoping someone here can help me out :)
With my drumpad triggerer in MAX, I can use touchin, or use midiin->midiparse, and get aftertouch messages, but I can't figure out how to get AT msgs for any specific note. The msgs I get are, as far as can attain, 'global'.
E.g. I'd like to use one pad's AT to control a metro and another pad's AT to set a gain~ level. Something like that.
But if I'm performing AT with both pads, I can't differentiate their AT values.
Using MIDI Tester I can see values change for AT but not for Poly press., the latter sounding more like something I might want?
I hear a lot of enthusiasm for Akai's drumpads, so I'm sure I'm missing something simple here.
