Sound Changer

Post by Udo Behm » Tue Aug 20, 2019 9:51 am

Many of you know that some instruments are using key switches that change the sound of an instrument. E. g. if you press C0 the instrument gets a different type of sound then when you hit C#0 or D0 and so on...

Since my keyboard only has 61 keys I would like using a Max for Live Device that resembles these key changes or however they are called for these types of instruments...

Is anybody able creating such a Max for Live Device for me that contains approximately 12 pads that can be configured to these 12 keys on the keyboard that are normally not accessible unless you change the octave behavior of the keyboard?

It was perfect if these 12 keys became pre-configured from notes C0 to B0 including half-steps (C#0, D#0,...) but they should also be configurable to any other note that exists on the keyboard since not all instruments are using notes C0 to B0 for changing their characteristic.

I also would like being able to press buttons 1-9 on my computer keyboard in order to access these pads 1-12 (at least until pad 9) (with the configured notes if this is possible). The computer keys should only work for this scenario when the device is selected and otherwise be used for everything else they are used for in Live...

Who is able creating such a Device and send the code to me here??

Today is the perfect day to learn Max.
And this seems like a very good first project. Start with [makenote] help file ?

No offense, but I just checked my e-mails, and realized that I was already making custom Max for Live devices for you back in 2016.
I'm happy to help, but you got to make some efforts.

I've tried to learn Max, but it seems way too complicated for me... You cannot help me creating this device? Maybe for you it's done in a minute??

Ok but in exchange I want that you write a song for me. It would talk about an impossible love story in the Dinosaur’s era between a raptor and a diplodocus.
The intro should be in C# minor.
