Monophonic Synth Controller for Virtual Synths

Description

ddg.mono provides MIDI message handling for virtual monophonic synths in Max. It implements last/high/low note priority and legato/retrigger phrasing.

Optional

An optional integer argument in the range 0 - 2 can be used to specify note priority. The mode settings are:

mode 0 (retrigger): Retrigger on each keypress (default).
mode 1 (legato): Retrigger on new note only.
mode 2 (laststep): Send a noteoff message on last note only.

Messages

int

Arguments

MIDI-note-value [int]
In first inlet: The number is treated as a pitch value for a MIDI note-on message. Output of the received number and its corresponding velocity value is dependent on the mode attribute and the triggering modes (set using the legato or retrig messages).

In second inlet: The number is stored as a velocity to be paired with pitch numbers received in the left inlet.

  (inlet1)

Arguments

MIDI-velocity-value [int]
In right inlet: The number is stored as a velocity to be paired with pitch numbers received in the left inlet.

clear

The clear message will send a note-off message to stop any notes which are currently playing.

laststep

The laststep message will cause the ddg.mono object to send a note-off message for the last note played.

legato

The legato message will cause the ddg.mono object to send its output only when a new note is played.

retrig

The retrig message will cause the ddg.mono object to send its output on each key press (i.e., retriggering previously played notes).
