Triggering samples with the buttons on a guitar hero controller

Dec 01 2010 | 12:50 pm

Very simple question but can anyone explain how this is done as i just want each button to trigger a different sample. Or if anyone has a patch i could have a look at?

If you can get the hardware talking to a simple patch (try the [hi] object maybe) then you can use [sel] or [route] to work with the indices for each button. From there it’s totally simple, look to the tutorials and help files for sfplay~ etc.

You’ll probably need a hardware converter for the guitar to get into the PC USB port. But if [hi] doesn’t recognize it, you’ll need to look to [serial] instead.

maybe you’ve seen it already but this article might help:

and i believe the max patch is here, says, "THE ZERO GUIDE was written to help anyone (with a computer) turn their Guitar Hero controller into a musical instrument":

Hope it helps.
