MIDI Translator Pro: Keystroke to MIDI – unable to generate Note-On event



I created a simple preset to send a midi note signal (note-on) when I hit a certain key on my computer keyboard.

I have learnt that 80 and 90 are the numbers for the note-off and note-on event respectively. I tried both and both are generating a note-off event.

My outgoing MIDI messages are:

90 3C mf


80 3C mf

I also tried note-on on key-down and note-off on key-up. This also generates only note-off signals.

Hi Johannes,

I’ll be happy to help. Please post your project file and I will have a look. Also what is the value of mf you are sending? The last value¬† mf should be the note velocity and if it is zero, it will be the same as Note-off.¬† Try setting mf on the Note-on message to 7f (127 decimal) and it should work just fine for Note-On. The velocity range is 0-127 decimal or 0-7F hex
