Device Overview

Name/Version: XBOX Map 1.0
Author: CrashOnCross  
Description: Another gamepad controller mapper.

I made this because I was excited by the idea of controlling sounds with my gamepad, but none of the available m4l devices worked correctly with my third-party Xbox controller. And so I started by modifying one of those devices, got a bit carried away and built a whole new UI for it, amongst other changes.

I am planning to add midi notes triggering in future updates, whenever that may be.

This devices was built upon Freebox Gamepad Control 1.0 by veedjee

P.S. It's a mess inside and I'm not even ashamed.

Can this work with other controllers? ie PS3, PS4

@audiojet I wish I could test it. In theory, it should, but it would require manual adjustments for (probably) different messages coming from the controllers.

wow! thanks! It works with my original xbox one controller and your m4l device have very nice UI

@zinzibar Thank you so much, it's really nice to know this is useful for someone :)

Thank you so much for this one, it's so useful.
It would be nice to have an option to use sticks as an acceleration control for faders' position, so that faders could stay at their place when you leave sticks at center position.

@Oikio Thank you! That's a great idea, I'll definitely think about it!

With my old PureData based xbox>midi, I had a need for the analog sticks to be assignable to multiple paramaters per axis.
I've modified your device to allow for three assignments per axis :]


@protman Nice! I'm glad it's of use to you

Really cool device ! But I can't find out how to simple map a button from the xbox controller to trigger a midi note. Do you have any clue how to do it ?

Anyone suceed to make it work with a MacBook and Xbox controller ?

I have download drivers for Mac but i guess there is something wrong in max patch to rencognize Xbox controller .



Awesome tool for XY Pad mappings. Thanks so much!

@Artuan I have a temp version that does midi note mappings but it's kinda rough. I could send it to you via email if you want, just give me a shout at crashoncross @ gmail. com

Thank you so much for making this awesome tool!

I have 2 requests.
1.When I pull L2&R2 triggers at the same time, one side of trigger is always killed. I want there is no interference.

2.I want to choose Button or Temporally at vL and vR.

Could you fix them?
