I just created a patch that acts as a multitrack looper, and although pressing the spacebar 20 times kind of gets the job done, I wanted to use a foot pedal to activate the looping. The only pedal I own is a Line 6 POD XT Live, and I have been trying to figure out how to get MAX to recognize the pedal. E.g., when I press down on a pedal, I want MAX to be able to detect this, and create an object that can integrate this into my patch (like as a toggle on off, or a button press).
Do you guys know how to do this? Perhaps with some external or other program, or some nifty object I am not aware of? I tried the standard "hi" and other objects for recognizing externals, but couldn't figure this out.
Thanks so much!
