but anyway, slightly OT the original question, my powermate doesn't work with [hi], apparently because it doesn't send the standard usb messages or something. i take it that you can use yours in max somehow?
It becomes a pedal as soon as a put it under my foot.

ooh. i'd been pointed in the directions of those kernel extensions before. i'd tried it and didn't seem to have any luck. not being familiar with the terminal/unix stuff i undoubtedly did something wrong, but i haven't wanted to attempt anything like it again for fear of deleting something important, and those site instructions seemed a bit intimidating for me.
how simple is it really? any help/reassurance would possibly make me want to have another go
hey, a little OT but- I have the rig kontrol 2 pedal that comes with NI guitar rig. I love it to bits, as a bit of hardware, its dead solid. powers by USB, and functions as an audio / midi interface. I have a couple of issues tho-
1) I want to use the rig kontrol to control effects in max, but the rig kontrol apparently communicates in a non-audio language that ISN'T midi. I know max is a versatile tool, so I was wondering if there might be a way to use max to read this 'non audio language'?
2) the guitar rig effects are great, but as guitar rig is VST / AU plug-in, I'm thinking I may have some problems using it in my patch. I'm told that max doesn't use VST / AU plug ins with the best efficiency. Is this true? It's important that the patch is very efficient in processor usage, so this could potentially be a problem.
Sorry to bump this old thread, but after going to a Max/MSP symposium last weekend I got the itch to move my guitar (and eventually more) setup onto the laptop.
Since this thread Guitar Rig 3 (and Rig Kontrol 3) has come out.
I did a search but didn't see any information.
I have a decent soundcard already (Black Lion Modded MOTU Traveller) but the 'all-in-one' nature of the Rig Kontrol is attractive, not to mention that it's bus powered. So a laptop and that, would be presumably all I would need.
The problem is I don't really like Guitar Rig. I would probably use it a bit here and there, but I would mainly use Max/plugins/etc... but I would like to be able to control them from Rig Kontrol.
Is this sort of thing possible?
Either via running plugins/GR in max, or using max/hi to route the data to the relevant plugins elsewhere (mainstage?).
