How to convert Note On..wait 2 seconds..same Note On ?

Post by skondbush » Sun Nov 12, 2006 5:17 pm

Dear friend,

As say the title, we need such an operation for Ableton Live, to start a sample and stop it after some a period of 4 or 8 bar for example.
If you do it too quick it doesn't work.
You need to wait for something like one or 2 seconds.

To go further, it would be interesting to know how you do the programs, with which tool ?

Thanks for all !

I was not very clear so...
I would like to make this

- Push one midi pedal > simulate a Keystroke Pad number 1

- The program wait 2 seconds

- The program simulate a second Keystroke Pad number 1

It is something like to create one echo...just one.

You say "Bome"and it repeat, after 2 seconds........."Bome".

Thanks for your help.

Hi Roland,

this is quite easy with Midi Translator Pro:

Code: Select all

Translator 1: keystroke Pad number 1
OPTIONS: stop processing: uncheck
INCOMING: MIDI <pedal MIDI message>
OUTGOING: keystroke <key pad 1>

Translator 2: start 2 second timer
INCOMING: MIDI <pedal MIDI message>
OUTGOING: Start Timer "pad 1", 
    one-shot timer, initial delay=2000millis

Translator 3: reaction after 2 seconds
INCOMING: timer "pad 1"
OUTGOING: keystroke <key pad 1>
Translator 1 and Translator 2 are both executed with the same MIDI message, if you uncheck the "stop processing" option.

You could further optimize it (if the simulated keystrokes will be the same when you press the pedal and after 2 seconds) by creating a timer that is called exactly twice, with initial delay 0millis and repetitive delay of 2000millis. Then you don't need the first translator above.

Let us know how it works!
Florian

PS: Midi Translator is currently developed in Delphi, but currently ported to Mac OS X

Impossible to uncheck "OPTIONS: stop processing"

Dear Florian,
Thanks for your answer and also for the other about reducing the curse of a knob.
I hope that I'am not too stupid but I cannot modify the status "Stop" under the word "Options" in the main window.
I have really tried for about an hour with no result...
Thanks for your help.

oops, indeed a confusing thing... Maybe a (double)-click on the options should open the Edit Translator window, tab "General [F5]". There you find the actual "Stop Processing" checkbox.

I'll update my descriptions to include this info.

Thanks,
Florian
