What I want to ultimately is to connect a joystick or gamepad to my computer and translate the x/y stick movements to MIDI incrementally. What I’ve done is I’ve downloaded Bome’s Mouse Keyboard application. That will translate joystick moves to MIDI CC messages. Then, I can get the CC messages into Bome. What I want to do is make it so that let’s say the joystick is in its center position, Bome will output nothing. If I move the stick all the way to the right, Bome will repeatedly output a Note On 0, then Note Off 0 message very quickly, say five times per second. If I push the stick only a little to the right, Bome will repeatedly output a Note On 0, then Note Off 0 message slower, say once every second. If I push it to the left, I’d use Note 1, up would be Note 2, and so forth. So, Bome is translating CC messages that it’s getting from Bome’s Mouse Keyboard application into varying repeats of Note on/Note Off messages.
I know this is a really out-there request. I’m planning on using it to send commands to a lighting control desk to move robotic fixtures smoothly using the joystick. Any help is much appreciated thanks.
