I'm using a Dualshock 3 to generate a series of MIDI messages to send to any device (in this case a Yamaha Disklavier - mmmm) and I've been trying to develop the patch a little further.
I'm polling the data with the [hi] object with the pad just hooked up via usb. Joysticks control pitch/velocity/chord spacing/scale size etc. It's fairly simple, but when hooked up to the piano, it's actually fairly expressive.
The buttons on the PS3 are supposedly pressure sensitive, yet they all give either 1 or 0 messages. What am I getting wrong?
Also, does anyone have any tips for connecting via bluetooth? Bluetooth Setup Assistant doesn't seem to find the controller. FURTHERMORE! I'd love to get sixaxis working, but it probably requires a driver...
Patch attached, though it's pretty messy, inefficient and embarrassingly amateur.
Also, I'm running OSX Leopard.
