MIDI Tremolo control


    Oct 30 2018 | 9:57 pm
    Hi, I'm really new to MAX and so far the tutorials have been self explanatory, I'm building a midi M4L instrument and I'm using midiformat. I am trying to develop a variable tremolo control on the midi note. There is a midi event for a tremolo at 176 1 127 but that only turns on/off the tremolo. I was thinking about ways to implement a variable tremolo control like a lfo on a synthesizer would let us do. Any ideas where I can start from or similar patches?

      if you apply an LFO onto the current value of controller #7 (volume) that should do it, no?

      apply a LFO onto the velocity of the note? I'm basically emulating a midi event from a hardware controller (Leap Motion in this case). I will fiddle with the LFOs in the meanwhile, can you point me to an example? Thanks.

      on the note velocity it works likewise. but tremolo is usually something which happens also during the note plays, so with a CC you can arrange that effect better.

      Oh yes! I didn't think about CC at all. Since I figured out using virtual midi ports, controlling CCs from a number object is a breeze. Thank you Roman.
