I am building a software MIDI control surface in Max/MSP for a KORG ELECTRIBE EMX-1.
I am getting good results with sending MIDI control change and control value messages to the different parameters of the SYNTH parts, as well as NOTE on/off and velocity info to the unit.
All the basics are covered, except that I cannot find a way of triggering the EMX-1 (also a sequencer) to play, nor can I instantiate it’s recording function to activate/deactivate. Basically, I want to have a transport panel in Max that sends midi info to make the unit play/stop/record/reset. How can this be done?
How’d this project turn out? I recently got an EMX-1 and am thinking about
its many shortcomings that I need max to help it make up for. Would you care
to share what you built?
Have any other electribe users made anything fun?
Powerbook G3/500 640/40 – Stilll great for audio!
Max/MSP, Live 4, DP4, & various hardware synths
for me personally I’ve just forgotten about trying to sequence the EMX with MIDI and instead have been trying to make a sequencer in Max whose data could be used to control an EMX….seems simpler to me…
