I'm trying to create a patch that will use midi note-on / note-off signals to send a simple OSC command. [ex. /light1/on, light1/off]. However I am getting multiple note and velocity messages when I hit a key. Here are some examples of an OSC data monitors reaction to notes being played. The patched used for this was a simple notein connected directly to a udpsend.
This is a note pressed once and held for a few seconds then released:
This is a note quickly tapped twice:
Could someone please explain this behavior and what I could do to resolve it? I've seen in the tutorials information about setting note off on a timer but I don't think I should need to do that. I would think I could hold a note for hours if needed. Thank you for your help!
