I’ve hit a hurdle in using MIDIBuddy. While MB works perfectly when mapped to, say, two volume faders in Live, it isn’t working well for me because I map the Mouse Move Up/Down Relative output to a volume knob and the Left/Right output to a pitch transpose knob which has 12 steps (12 semitones). For reference, these are the Volume knob and Pitch knob for the Live Beat Repeat function.
The X axis movement required to go 0 pitch transpose to -12 semitones is very small, while the Y axis movement required to go from 0 volume to full volume (Y-axis) is relatively much greater…. not really usable.
I’ve tried changing this by ignoring 3 out of every 4 outputs of the X axis but this leads to very erratic movement of the pitch transpose knob. I think that’s because MB outputs bigger numbers as the speed of trackball -right-movement increases (and conversely, smaller numbers as the speed of trackball – left movement increases. I tried always outputting 63 for Left Movements and 65 for Right Movements, but that led to pretty strange effects also.
I also tried using absolute outputs of MIDIBuddy for the X-Axis and changing the mode of the Live pitch control to Absolute, but in this case, the X-axis movement required is much much greater than the Y axis movement partly because (during programming at least) I use two screens and the limits MB uses are related to the screen size. Even with a single screen (assuming that using a single screen would change things), I think the required movement would still be too great.
Can you think of a way to get the two required movements to match. Maybe changing the limits for MIDIBuddy itself, when it outputs Cursor/Pointer Screen position? or any other way?
I think you have Live, so you could set up the same scenario as I have in order to see the problem I’m experiencing.

Hi, Gabriel, look at this later today and see what I can come up with. Best to handle it in Bome MT.
If Left right does not change hit ESC to reset the global variable I’m using.
