I bought this controller called the ShuttleXpress from Contour Design (http://retail.contourdesign.com/?/products/22) in the hope I could connect this to MaxMSP to make a versatile master controller for my studio and different tools in my studio. It works with the (pretty bad -Mac OS9 like) drivers but not for what I want to do with it (it just gives keystrokes to the program you focus on).
I tried with the ‘hi’ object but it’s not recognized. I’ve been reading about (Mac OS) programs which can read out USB devices and make a script to get the data out the controller; but couldn’t find where to start really? Could anyone help with this?
