Midi Controller - CC to trigger different midi notes for single, double and triple press.
Nov 18 2020 | 10:07 am
I have a issue where I’m looking to use a midi foot controller to send different midi notes to a vst to trigger different drum parts.
The midi output from the midi foot controller is midi cc only, so i need max for live device to convert midi cc to midi note (which is easy enough and I have a device that does this).
I also want a single, double and triple press of each button to send different midi notes. For example - single press send C3, double press send C#3... This is easy enough as well using threshold (to aggregate the number of presses within a certain time), zl.sum (to sum list) and then having different converted notes trigger based on the number of presses.
The issue that I have is that while i can click a button or bang message to flow into threshold, sum in zl.sum and output as the number of “presses”, this doesn’t seem to work at all when I press the foot controller - which always outputs 1 and does not sum based on the number of times I press it within the threshold timeframe.
I hope this makes sense, I’m at bit of a loss .
