Ps2 Routing Patch


    Apr 19 2006 | 9:20 pm
    I am still setting up my ps2 controller to control my dj decks and have run into a problem.
    I have my digital up/down buttons sliding the pitch of the track up or down which works fine. The problem arises when I press any of the buttons or all the way up on right analogue (which isnt such a problem as I am only using it for left and to control crossfader).
    When a button, circle, square etc is pressed and released the data from the hi object jumps back to 0 which is also the number which triggers digital up (well 32, 0 to be precise may vary on Mac OS as I am using PC). This is a nuisance as I have triangle configured to reset the pitch slider to its central (0 pitch shift) position. So whenever i pressed down after centering it also triggers the up button which messes up the working and makes the pitch slider go up even though you are holding down.
    This is probably to do with the way I am triggering the various aspects (through a combination of select/route and onebang). Was wondering if anyone knew any handy tips round this or has had similar problems.
    Thanks
    Will

      Why don't you use [route 56 54 55 51 50 49...] right behind hi instead of an unpack? then you can easily get rid of all the onebangs as well.... like that: (just to give you a start how to streamline your logic)

      I'm guessing he's using either a USB clone of a PS controller or has a PS2>USB adaptor and is using the fantastic 'hi' object to read in the data from the controller.

      Thanks Stefan that seems to of got rid of that problem I was experiencing, which was caused by the oneband objects.
      Yes I am using a USB converter, which I purchased off ebay, to use my PS2 controller in conjunction with the hi object in max.

      there's a converter from ps2 to usb that you can easily but online or in shops...
      then you connect it via usb to computer, then you decode it with Hi object in max, or with junxtion by steim.org
      cheers...
