    how to make key mappings work even when madmapper isn't open?

    by soup@LIAstudios.com » Sat Sep 29, 2018 1:08 am

    Hello, I have one controller I wanted to use for both Resolume and madmapper but I've now learned that isn't possible in windows (without 3rd party software). So for now I just mapped what I needed using a keyboard mapping but I guess these are only seen by madmapper when it is in the foreground; is there any way to change this?

    No, MadMapper will only receive keyboard event if it's the focus application. On macOS a MIDI controller can be shared among multiple applications. On Windows you will have to use a midi routing application like Bomes. You can create virtual midi outputs in Bomes, and you can forward incoming midi data to multiple virtual outputs. So your controller would send midi data to Bomes, and Bomes will forward this to two virtual outputs.
