Is there anyone who knows a good way to realize an incremental controller?
Basically what I want is a knob and every time I turn it one tick clockwise I get some sort of tick or signal that it has moved one step clockwise and if I move it counter-clockwise I get another signal for that.
For example if I would get one note-on message for clockwise movement and another note-on message for counter clockwise movement.
How does endless MIDI rotary encoders work?
Do they just count up to 127 and then continue to 0 and start counting up again?
In that case I could maybe make it work with something like that.
Basically what I want to do is to start a program (MAX Patch), but I don't know the positions of the physical knobs, so when someone turns a knob I just want the value to change from where it is, not jump to the MIDI value of the knob.
Anyone knows a good example both of a patch for this and also suitable physical controllers?
