im quite new to all this, but i'm learning slowly so if anyone can help me with my current problem it'd be much appreciated
i am trying to use the thumb joysticks on a generic gamepad to control various elements within ableton live.
so far i have managed to get a volume slider to go up when you push the joystick up and down when you move it down but when you let the joystick go it returns to its central position and the volume slider goes back to the corresponding midpoint too.
the top position gives a value of 1, the resting position gives a value of 0.5039, and the bottom position is 0
what i want it to do is to increase when i push the stick up and stay there until i pull it down past its resting position (giving a value of less than 0.5039). and vice versa - if i pull the value down i want it to stay there until i push the joystick up past the resting position so the value is greater than 0.5039
i been trying all sorts of combinations but i'm finding using the relevant objects required to perform the operation really confusing so if anyone can help i'd be very grateful
many thanks for any help
