This tutorial, step by step:
Map a MIDI controller to a contraption parameter:
Connect a MIDI device to your computer and switch it on.
Start up AudioMulch.
Open the patch that was built in the Using The Metasurface tutorial (
Click here to download the patch).
Enable MIDI button on the toolbar to enable MIDI input.
On the RissetFilters property editor window, right-click the slider next to the
Rate parameter and select Quick-Map MIDI Control.
On your MIDI device, manipulate a wheel, knob or slider. The Quick-Map MIDI Control window will close.
Move the same wheel, knob or slider again and the rate parameter slider on the RissetFilters contraption should move accordingly.
Change the value range of the mapping:
Right-click on the
Rate parameter slider again and select Parameter Control.
On the righthand pane of the Parameter Control window, click on the
Upper Limit setting to the value you want the rate parameter to be when your wheel, knob or slider is at its maximum position.
Lower Limit setting to the value you want the rate parameter to be when your wheel, knob or slider is at its minimum position.
Move your wheel, knob or slider and the rate parameter slider should move between the values you specified.
