keyboard shortcuts in a vst plug


    Feb 23 2007 | 8:38 am
    I made a patch where, using the objects key, sel and other stuffs, I can control some actions by hitting a key. all works fine inside max. then I built a vst from my patch to use it in a host audio sequencer (ableton live 6.0.1). the plug doesn't respond to the key command...
    someone had the same problem?
    thanks

      ableton captures all keystrokes. though you could assign a keystroke to a vst parameter and do it that way

      the problem is that I have not to control (i.e.) a float ramp for real
      time pitch shifting with a plugparam object, but only a simple
      "play/stop" a buffer. inside max I solved it with key obj + sel 112
      (the "p" key number) + a toggle. so in max it' s easy, but into the
      plug in?
      may be a plugmidiin object can be helpful?
      thanks

      thanks bin
      I worked 2 days but at the end I succeded in... I used many pp objects (also for the switch) with key, sel, counter etc. than in ableton I made the key set up. if you or someone needs:
      max v2;
      now I'm going on with the problem of instantiating multiple copies of the some plug ins on different channels. I don't think I'll be able... may be I'll work with only 1 ;D

      the only program that'll allow you to use keystrokes in a vst that I know of is Cubase. Live defintely doesn't. In cubase, it's set in the preferences. It can also be turned on and off with a keycommand.
