Have you looked at the hi object ?
Plug your device in, open the, click the menu

if hi doesn’t work (which is quite often in my experience) have a look at
Junction, an application by steim <> for pretty
extensive usb to midi mapping. costs a bit, but could be worth it

when i try to use hi i get a message:
error: hi: no such object

do you know why this would be, is it an extra install?

shouldn’t be…but if you haven’t got it then go to and
you can get it. just put it in the externals folder like any other external
