    MIDI OUT

    by kolemjdouci » Mon Feb 29, 2016 5:29 pm

    Hello there

    I have one important question..Is somehow possible (via module or through external software) that M8 would send out a MIDI message after a video loop ends.?

    I'm trying to connect M8 with several movement sensors and the notice message about the end of the loop is really necessary to me..

    - any ideas?

    Thank you in advance..

    What do you mean by "end of loop" ? It's possible to know when a clip ends in play once mode. In loop mode it's a bit harder as the received value may not be very precise. Maybe you can be more precise if you check if the time is 00:00:00:00 and send a midi message.

    Using the module editor it's not so difficult. But 'tis not the easiest trick if you never edited a module… I can try it for you if you want

    Ok, did some tests, it's a bit tricky but I managed to do something stable enough I guess.

    You can find a module in the online library called (s6) sendMidiOnLoop

    You'll need to open the module editor to change the midi message. It's this line you need to edit:

    Code: Select all

    modul8.sendMidi(0, 1, 'CONTROL_CHANGE', 3, 127)


    Good luck
