Control Patches with PC keyboard

Sep 13 2010 | 9:13 pm

I want to use the PC keyboard to control a Live Set. For example I want to control the Clip-Matrix with the Numblock. The Problem is that the Keycommands were sent to Ableton Live, not to my Max patch (in this case a MIDI-Effect on an empty Slot). So Max couldnt recognize when I press a button. Is there any way to get all Keycommands in Max, dont matter which Window is activated (Max or Ableton Live) ? Something like a Keyboard Hook ?

Hope sb could help me

Have you seen the key object?? But if you want to trigger clips with the numblock i think is better with the key map.

Thanks for your reply, alersito but I think you missunderstood my Problem. If the Max Patch Window is activated, the key objects works fine, but if I minimize this and work in the Ableton Live Window, the Patcher doesnt get the Keycommands.
