Question about Keyboard Slider object


    Oct 05 2006 | 4:46 am
    I want to make a small keyboard tool in which the key of keyboard slider is "pressed" when mouse is held, and the key is "released" when mouse is released.
    With this, I will be able to test soft synthesizer patch more easily.
    The Keyboard Slider object in Max/MSP always keeps a key pressed. I want it to send a note-off message when the mouse leaves the key on the keyboard slider, but I cannot find any info in the help file.
    Is there anyway to do it ?
    Thanks.

      Hi,
      Maybe [mousefilter] can help. It'll let the pitch path when you release the note, so you can use this information du stop the note(s).
      HTH, ej
