MIDI Translator HELP for AIR PIANO

Post by bishop813 » Fri Oct 26, 2007 3:01 am

Florian,

I have accomplished half of my vision but still some assistance.
this is from our last conversation

"The way to go is to use the same virtual MIDI cable that you used to connect MK to Reason as MIDI OUT in MT. Then, define suitable MIDI messages in response to the Glove's incoming events. E.g. an outgoing MIDI message "90 40 7F" will start a note some, "90 40 00" will stop it. "

The problem is that I don't know where in MT to type in the stop message.
I have the 90 40 7f in the outgoing. where does the stop message go?

Thanks,
Bishop

that depends - for just triggering notes (e.g. drums), you can append the Note Off message (aka stop message) to the Note On message:
e.g. enter this as Outgoing MIDI message:
"90 40 7F 90 40 00"

This won't work with normal music, because the sound is only triggered, not held.

I don't know what your controller does, but if it does not send dedicated messages on which you think the note should be stopped, there are two general approaches you can go:

1) with MT Pro, use a timer
Here, with every Note On message, you start a timer that will stop the note after a pre-configured time.

2) stop a note when starting the next one
Also this will usually only work with MT Pro: before starting a new note, stop the currently sounding one. This requires that you remember the currently sounding note in a global variable.

Hope that helps,
Florian
