Description: This is a modded version of this device:

I am by no means a Max expert so everything I did might be a little unconventional, nevertheless it works flawlessly in my case.
If you know your way around Max then you can surely refine it..

I added a few goodies:
-A toggle for the Pitch Keytracking
-Another keytracking mode for controlling the start point (MPC style chops on your volca!)
-Possibility to assign the velocity to the volume, the filter, the decay and the length, with adjustable amount. (Hell!Why not?)
-A toggle for bypassing altogether the pitch parameter. (useful if you want to use the semitone stepped pitch using the hardware unit and not having the controller accidentally mess your settings. Default is bypassed)
-Took inspiration from this:
http://www.maxforlive.com/library/device/2747/volca-sample-controller-happy-tosh-edit
and I also placed the knobs in the same fashion as the original unit.
-Made all parameters 0-127 for easier manual recall on the hardware if necessary.

Note:
-THE VELOCITY AMOUNT KNOBS WORK BACKWARDS!!!
So in the default (full open) position is no velocity sensitivity. (keeping brainwaves exercised)
-With the amount parameters you can only define a higher minimum, not a lower maximum (I'll add this once I figure it out properly)

Nice one!

Did you make any adjustments to the not -> pitch conversion of the original?

Im not sure what you are asking... it doesnt track well in tune as usual...

Sorry, I meant note -> pitch conversion. There are some errors in the code of the original device... I was planning to fix it, but havent gotten around to it yet. The thing is, the steps on the pitch-dial are not the same all the way: Close to original pitch it's quarter-notes, further out the pitch-steps increase, and at the far ends the steps are very far, so when you want to play this with midi-notes, the conversion needs to be well worked out.

I see what you're saying but I think it's to do with the hardware, not the max patch..

The speed dial just sends a normal cc 0-127 so 128 steps...
The problem is that the hardware translates that into an unusable scale...
The only solution is to write the patterns manually from the hardware using parameter lock and the shift butto while adjusting speed, thus moving it in semitones...
