Re: OT(?): utility to map Midi Note to PC messages?



Hi Zoe -

Maybe MIDIPipe will work for you:
http://www.versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/mac/16154

Among other things, you can trigger applescripts that can interact  
with System Events. applescript can introduce some latency, but not  
too bad on intel macs :-)

Below I've included an example of a script to trigger events in Live.

Cheers,
Craig
