The question is, which enquiring minds want to know, Jeff, is what don't you have MAX/MSP doing for you...I'm visualizing MAX/MSP starting (loadbanding) your coffeemaker in the morning, controlling (via some monstrous object and set of parameters you've concocted) the humidity of your cigar humidifier, mixing (via the mix/fader object) your drinks at night, and many other mundane tasks that only mere mortals concern themselves with.... :) The thing is, I'm right behind you....because I need to pick your brain now on this whole EV5 controller thing. I have one, and I'd love to use it to control my VST parameters in MAX/MSP....problem is, all I have is USB connections, so I may need another solution. Of course, I could use my FCB, which has two expression pedals, where I could assign them to one MIDI channel, and my buttons for Mobius to another MIDI channel...but then I'm back to dragging that boat anchor around.

To entirely avoid clicks: I route an EV5 pedal to trigger record and play when at or near the "toe" position. Perfectly quiet. It is all done in max/msp.....so you'd have to use a laptop. best, Jeff Jeff Kaiser http://www.JeffKaiser.com pfMENTUM.com • AngryVegan.com On Sep 27, 2006, at 11:06 PM, Ferrara Brain Pan wrote: > I just ordered the switches Travis recommended from Mouser (EDP > replacement switches made by > Mountain Switch)...
