speed dial, like novation

Dec 03 2009 | 6:39 pm

i want to make a speed dial (a knob on BCR2000 that when the mouse hovers over a parameter it can be used to ‘turn’ it physically), i though of 2 ways.

either hovering the mouse over something bangs the path of that something.


i have push-encoders, so when i push it simulates a mouse click and hold, and a turn simulates a up or down keypress.

can either of these be done? i’m only finding objects to monitor mouse/keyboard and i have no idea how to do mouse hover stuff.

If you want to send data from your BCR2000 to max objects when the mouse is over them then you should give them scripting names and use [hover] and [pattrforward] to route the values to the correct object. Here’s a quick example. I assume it works in M4L although I only own max.

actually i want to send data to live’s knobs. like if i put a filter on a track, i could hover over the frequency knob, then turn a knob on BCR and have the frequency knob move. i don’t think anything in ableton has or could have a scripting name?

is there a way to do mouseclicks through max?
