Any simple, effective tools to offset the MIDI output scale value range of a controller?

Post by Torley » Sat Sep 12, 2020 5:32 am

I have a hardware knob controller that's generally working great, but it only outputs from 0-126. Have confirmed this on generic rack knobs, and others. Seems like a small distinction but is causing issues in practice, and my numbers OCD makes me want to have an absolute min/max.

Live's own MIDI Mappings allows setting the Min/Max range but can't offset or boost it to compensate.

Are there any M4L or other tools (I'm on Mac) to change that range, so somehow it could extend to 0-127, or if I'm offsetting every value by +1, so it goes from 1-127? (Which is more workable for me.)

Tried various devices in https://maxforlive.com/ but haven't found a clean solution yet. Various ones with curves seen to require a lot of extreme scaling to get to 127, which makes the lower range unusable.

Thanks for any advice.
Yes, that Torley. I use Live to do THIS. :)

Not tried it myself but I was browsing M4L for something else and thought this might do what you're after- https://maxforlive.com/library/device/5087/cc-converter
