I´m brandnew here, want to purchase bome translater pro, but have problems.

I followed the tutorial carefully, that shows how to translate midi into keystrokes (that´s what I want to do with the translator).

My beginner´s problem:

 

the translator recognizes captured midi in the “incoming” window , but doesn´t show action in the log window.

I set the “outgoing” to physical key stroke, type in control z: nothing happens.

 

What´s wrong?

Thanks for your help

Thank you, Steve,

your tutorials are very helpful. I´ve overseen a little mark in the video, that says I´ve to click on the desired incoming midi message, before going to the outgoin process. I think that solved my first problems. I purchased the Bome translator in the meantime.

Btw: I´m doing looping music on ableton live. I´ve already a set up on my foot controller to launch clips etc.

What I still need to figure out is the following:

I record a clip, I want to activate the clip editor and quantize it ( when necessary with ctrl U).

How can I emulate the double click by the mouse on the clip in the session window, that opens and ACTIVATES the clip (editor) – window in order to to set my ctr U?

You might want to check with Ableton if there is a hotkey instead. It would be more reliable.
You could have a series of translators that position the mouse on the screen and the click there two times (using timers) to open the MIDI window. However if you do this you would need to always have your Live session screen positioned in the same place (for the mouse clicks). This would not be realistic as you would likely need to position and open different clicks for editing.

If memory serves me there may be other shortcuts in Ableton you can use. Like Control Enter (Command Enter on Mac), but I’m not the Ableton live expert. Best to consult the manual or check with them if there is a shortcut for this or whether you can set one up.

Hi, and welcome to Bome!

My guess is that when you set the incoming keystroke, you had a set incoming “value” of the note or controller. Instead, if it is a note-on or note-off  incoming message make the velocity  “Any Value” instead.  Likewise if it is a CC message make the value “Any Value”.

You can determine if MT is properly recognizing the incoming message to trigger a given translator by checking the “Incoming” box of the log window.  The “MIDI IN” will show whether a translator recognizes it or not.

In summary, if you see MIDI IN but not Incoming, there are no translators being triggered and there is a likelihood that the incoming message, channel or port of the translator doesn’t match the intended condition to trigger the event.

Once the incoming event is properly triggers (you are seeing “Incoming”). You can check “Outgoing” and see the keystroke in the log window. Since a keystroke is not a MIDI event, you will not see keystrokes with MIDI OUT checked.

Note also that your intended application should be in focus if you want it to see the keystroke (unless you have an injected Windows event).

Let me know if I can be of further help. If you are still stuck, post your file here (in an answer since comments will not take attachments), and I will have a look.
