      oh, 97 and 98 are the ASCII codes of 'a' and 'b' on the keyboard. so when i press a i want it to output 31 and b to output 32

      ahhhhh, a select statement. thanks! that seems so obvious now.

      If you're dealing with larger sets of numbers, you also might want to have a look at [coll].

      for lots of ASCII key characters, I run it through [sprintf %c]. this way your select statement can be [sel a b c d e] etc. instead of ASCII numbers, more intuitive.
      note that non-printing characters like space, tab, enter etc. won't print out from the sprintf, it's only for letters/numbers/symbols. but [sel 13 9 8] will react to Enter, Tab, Backspace, for example.
      yep, select is basically a multiple "if" statement, or a "switch" statement. I don't see or use the [if] statement in Max very much, but sometimes it helps for certain things.
