Toggle switch using MIDI keyboard


    Nov 17 2006 | 1:40 am
    I'm trying to setup a toggle switch that would be controlled from MIDI keyboard. So if I press a certain key the switch would be switched on, and if I press the same key again it would switch off.
    I came very close using [noetin]->[select 54]->[Ggate]
    When note with pitch 54 is pressed select sends a bang out to Ggate which changes the output, but the problem is that when I depress the key the value 54 is sent once again with note-off message, and select sends another bang which toggles the Ggate back to the first output.
    So in my example due to this the effect is active only while I hold the MIDI key and deactivated as soon as I depress it, but I would like it to stay on till the next time I press the same MIDI key.
    Any solutions/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

      Use 'stripnote' after the notein and before the select - it removes
      noteoffs (noteons with a velocity of 0).

      Thanks a lot, 'stripnote' did the trick
