Convert momentary button into toggle in the global map

0 votes
hello everybody,

I just bought an AKAI MIDIMix, that is a fantastic controller for Kyma, BUT its own editor does not allow to switch the behaviour of the buttons between momentary and toggle. you can choose the cc number and the channel but not the toggle setting as you can  do, for example with the Korg Nano series.

that´s particularly annoying if you want to assign a vcs button to the controller button with the learn function.

is there a way to change the behaviour of a CC incoming message in the global map? then I would just have to assign the button to the corresponding CC on the vcs.


thanks for your help.

Yes, to get toggles, you can either use !sw00 through !sw119 as your EventValues, or you can create a new global map and copy the syntax from the !sw definitions, for example:

!sw00 is: (`MIDIController00 displayAs: #toggle).

even if it is displayed in the VCS as a Toggle, the behaviour of the controllers button is still momentary, so the toggle in the VCS is On just when the button is pressed, not when I release it ;(
In that case, you could add also add the Capytalk message "asToggle" in the parameter field where it is used, for example:

!sw01 asToggle
Ok, I hoped there was a way to change the behaviour in the global map, that would be more flexible.
