Format 14-bit MIDI continuous controller messages to be transmitted using the midiout object.
A single 14-bit MIDI continuous controller message comprises two groups of bytes, one for the most significant byte of the value (MSB, on controller 0-31) and one for the least significant byte (LSB, on the MSB controller + 32).
The initial argument is an initial high resolution controller number (in the range 0-31) to be used in control messages formatted by xctlout. Controller numbers are automatically limited between 0 and 31. If there is no controller number specified, the initial controller number is 1.
Following the controller number argument is an initial value for the channel number with which to format control messages. If the channel argument is not present, xctlout initially formats control messages on channel 1. In order for this argument to be used, a controller number argument must precede it. The channel number is clipped to the range 1-16.
lsbfirst [int] (default: 0)
When enabled, the LSB group of bytes in the formatted continuous controller messages will be transmitted first, followed by the MSB group. This is required by some MIDI hardware.
running [int] (default: 0)
If running status is enabled, the status byte of the second (LSB) group of bytes in the formatted continuous controller messages will be eliminated.
Common Box Attributes
Sets the text that will be displayed in the Clue window when the user moves the mouse over the object.
background [int] (default: 0)
Adds or removes the object from the patcher's background layer.adds the object to the background layer, removes it. Objects in the background layer are shown behind all objects in the default foreground layer.
color [4 floats]
Sets the color for the object box outline.
Sets the type style used by the object. The options are:
0 = 'regular'
1 = 'bold'
2 = 'italic'
3 = 'bold italic'
Sets the object's font.
Sets the object's font size (in points).
hidden [int] (default: 0)
Toggles whether an object is hidden when the patcher is locked.
Sets the text that will be displayed in as a pop-up hint when the user moves the mouse over the object in a locked patcher.
ignoreclick [int] (default: 0)
Toggles whether an object ignores mouse clicks in a locked patcher.
patching_rect [4 floats] (default: 0. 0. 100. 0.)
Sets the position and size of the object in the patcher window.
position [2 floats]
Sets the object's x and y position in both patching and presentation modes (if the object belongs to its patcher's presentation), leaving its size unchanged.
presentation [int] (default: 0)
Sets whether an object belongs to the patcher's presentation.
presentation_rect [4 floats] (default: 0. 0. 0. 0.)
Sets the x and y position and width and height of the object in the patcher's presentation, leaving its patching position unchanged.
rect [4 floats]
Sets the x and y position and width and height of the object in both patching and presentation modes (if the object belongs to its patcher's presentation).
size [2 floats]
Sets the object's width and height in both patching and presentation modes (if the object belongs to its patcher's presentation), leaving its position unchanged.
Sets the color for the object's text in RGBA format.
Sets the justification for the object's text.
0 = 'left'
1 = 'center'
2 = 'right'
When a value is received in the left inlet, the complete high resolution MIDI continuous controller message is sent out the outlet, byte-by-byte.
