Key Repeat?

Post by Patch » Sat May 19, 2007 12:33 pm

I've been tring (with no luck :( ) to get a repeat output from MT. I would like to hold down a midi key, and have it output a repeat "down arrow" command. This is for scrolling through the track browser in Live.

At the moment, the only way to scroll down 10 tracks is to press the midi key that gets translated to "down arrow" 10 times - I'd like to have it so that you only need to hold down the midi button to scroll.


I've done a search, and the only thing I can find cose to this is Rishi's Rapid Repeat... But I can't get it to work...

With Midi Translator Pro, you can specify a single "key down" event, with configurable repeat, plus a corresponding key up event:

Translator 1: Note off to key H up
Options: stop=true
Incoming: MIDI 90 pp 00
Outgoing: Key up: H

Translator 2: Note on to key H down
Options: stop=true
Incoming: MIDI 90 pp qq
Outgoing: Key down: H [repeat active]

That example will simulate key h when pressing a MIDI note. It'll repeat until you depress the MIDI note.
