14 Bit MIDI Control in Ableton

Post by LithiuMind » Wed Nov 21, 2012 11:31 pm

I have been able to build a device which creates 14 bit numbers from a standard 7 bit "0-127" MIDI control signal. However, I cannot figure out how to map that to an "Absolute 14 Bit" control in Ableton.

I am under the impression that in 14 Bit, Ableton is going to be looking for a pair of CC values, separated by 32 CC#s. For example CC 1 and CC 33, with CC 1 sending the coarse value from 0-127 and CC 33 sending the fine value, with 0-127 being sent between each step 0,1,2,3,4 of CC 1.

CC 1 CC 2
1 1
1 2
1 3
1 4
1 5
... ...
1 126
1 127
2 0
2 1
2 2
2 3
etc.

But how to I map both of these controls simultaneously to a parameter like a volume fader in live? This part confuses me.
