using a 2nd HID keyboard exclusivly for MK

Post by slugo » Mon Dec 31, 2007 3:26 pm

First let me just say... Thank you for MK!! I don't know what I would do without it and it's wonderful chord editor.

So here is my question... Is there a way to assign a 2nd HID keyboard to MK?

example. I have a USB HID Keyboard plugged into my laptop. Rather than switching between my sequencer and MK (alt+Tab).. Could I have my 2nd keyboard exclusively assigned to MK for input? Is that even possible? I poked around the forums and looked at the settings... Let me know if you need more clarification.

Any help would be great!

Many Thanks,

Hi Slugo,

it's quite unlikely that this is possible. From point of view of a Windows application, any additional USB keyboards are just the same as the first keyboard, there is no means to differentiate if a keystroke came from one or another keyboard. Now for most applications that's the intended effect...

If I get to know a way to technically solve this issue, it would be nice to integrate it in MK!

Happy New Year,
