I have a Novation SL Mkii keyboard and I’m trying to make a simple Max patch that will operate the gain from an audio input with my expression pedal, running out of the keyboard. I found that in Max, the ctlin object recognizes messages from the buttons but not from the faders, or dials (infinite rotation or limited), and not from the expr pedal. Does anyone know who to get values from controllers besides the buttons?
I don’t have an SL keyboard but a Remote 25 and a nocturn, so I may be wrong but I think some of the controls are bound up with using automap. It’s strange for the expression pedal but it’s usually a dedicated CC (64 if my memory’s ok). Maybe you have to configure this in the SL menu itself.
