Hello
great great software
unlimited fun

the postcard it's on the way

I have a little question maybe it's posible...

i want the controler (a rotary one or fader ) to be recognized when the midi value goes up and down

for example when value goes UP to send keystroke ] and when goes DOWN the keystroke [
it's posible?

it will be fabuos for non midi software :D

Thanx

This depends on the controller: on some control surfaces/keyboards, there are "endless knobs" that send a series of "7F"'s when turning to the right, and "00"'s when turned in the left direction.

If you have a standard knob or controller that sends an absolute position, you cannot send different values for up or down, currently. The next version of MT will allow "if" statements and global variables, then your task will be possible.

Regards,
Florian

On the X-session you could also map some push buttons. :)

AFAIK this is normal behaviour for buttons. Default they are set to toggle (first press = on, release = nothing, second press = off) but you can set them to note on/off (press = on, release = off).

I don't think there are any other options, but you can send any value as either 'on' or 'off' of course...
