I'm using max 5.1 and Live 8 so not working glitch free, however it's a really useful device and no doubt works fine in max 6 and Live 9 love it..


Would be great if this device allowed you to set a hold time (duration the CC max message would be sent until CC min message) for the for each of the 8 momentary midi inputs. That way drum pads could be used to trigger FX sends in a live performance.

I found this really useful, but I had two problems:

1. i put it on a MIDI channel, set the MIDI channel to monitor input, and it did nothing. I had to add a second channel, set it's input to the correct controller, turn on input monitoring and route the output to Momentary 8. Is this necessary?

2. I set it up to respond to the key messages from my LPD8, and it behaved oddly. The second & 6th control did not respond, but the third and 7th control responded to both the key assigned and the key assigned to the 2nd and 6th controls.

hi chaircrusher, thanks
could you please try again? (download it again also),
everything is working fine here..

Hi there

Great device, but why not add the option of a toogle behavior.
play a Note : parameter on
play again the note : parameter off

I guess it can be coded as a kind of hold midi note function (no note off message), then you need to play again the note for send the note off message
