Re: A quieter, gentler footswitch?...



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
