Is there a M4L device that does this? Note Toucher.

Post by cabletone » Mon Jun 12, 2017 7:24 pm

There's a physical device called "Note Toucher", which takes an incoming MIDI stream of notes and chords, and allows you to "play" the notes and chords with one or two fingers (notes C and D on a keyboard.)

This allows someone with no keyboard skills but some rhythm to "play" a sequence and not have to worry about fumbling for notes and sounding sloppy.

I'm wondering if there's a maxforlive device (or any plugin for that matter) that enables one to do this.

I know there are some sequencers in maxforlive that allow you to advance each step with a midi note input, which is kind of what I'm looking for, but the ones I've seen are limited to a certain number of notes in the step sequence, and allow only single notes, not chords as well. What I'm looking for is something that would allow one to play a whole song, with chords.

I still don't understand what you want? And that website is a mess. Like som ad from 1980.

There is like gazillion of step sequencers and keyboard performers (conductr https://www.conductr.net/features/ablet ... -keyboard/ ) or whatever the hell you can think off, all can be played over midi keyboard and be in Key you desire it to be. If that is what you ask for.
