I was wondering how I could intercept midi messages from my controller. The reason is that I want to control [Sig~] (for pitch shifting in [groove~]) going in the negative and positive. w. my midi controller.
Now,as you all know, I have 0-127 to work with, so I put a [- 63.5] dividing 127 in 2 so I could wonder in the negatives starting at 63.5. (so far, so good)
Now, for slower pitch change in [sig~] I need to be affecting the digits pass the decimal point. Easy, I put a [*0.01] and now my incoming midi messages slowly pitch shift.
BUT THE PROBLEM IS, that I only get tiny range of -0.635 to 0.635 to play with. (of course having only 128 actions)
But what I want is to be going from something like (-200.)to(200.)or more. (Of course I could be using [scale] or [zmap] but then I would get leaps in my pitch shifting which I absolutly want to avoid).
So I figured that I need more actions from my midi "pot". In other words, more knob turns for one unit change. Or again, converting midi messages into the decimals before they get to midiin??
I am completly cluesless as how to solve this problem.
Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance
