Device Overview

Name/Version: Maestro v2.0 - Advanced Parameter Keyboard
Author: ryan7585  
Description: This is a midi instrument, which is incredibly useful for arranging tracks, and doing some advanced fiddling with parameters using the keyboard. Assign your velocity-sensitive midi keys to parameters in live. It was built for the purpose of having many tracks playing in Live, assigning their volume to key velocity (with adjustable sensitivity and range), and then using the keyboard to bring parts in and out. However it can be assigned to any parameter, and be used for easy, intuitive hands-on control, adjusting parameters in fun and musically useful ways.

Features include:

-Map keys to 12 parameters total. Use more instances for more octaves.
-Adjustable velocity sensitivity.
-Adjustable value range.
-Adjustable Smooth setting for fade-ins/outs
-Adjustable Jitter function
-Color-changing backgrounds behind the controls telling you which keys are being pressed.
-Several options for freezing the parameter so you can let go of the key and keep playing, including: Tap on and off, "HOLD" toggle for each key and a global hold, and sustain pedal functionality.

The Sustain pedal is mapped to control the global "Hold" function and works the same way. Press the key on with the pedal released, then press the pedal, then let go of the key, then let go of the pedal.. and the parameter will hold until you tap it off.

Enjoy! Let me know what you think :)
