Device Overview

Name/Version: 8 Notes Converter 1.1
Author: floszk  
Description: szk.8NOTESCONVERTER is a midi effect made to convert notes coming from midi source (keyboard, surface control, pads, etc …) to a midi instrument. It allow you to quickly identify the received notes and to convert them. No need to modify the source preferences. This device has been thought to work live with an Akai LPD8 and/or various midi pads (ex : Roland SPD, Octapad etc …).

#Version 1.1
It includes now a text and presets areas managed by writing/loading .maxpresets files.

Device location
Put the device as a midi effect before your instrument on a midi track.

In / Out
Just monitor the midi notes in and check the midi notes out conversion. The midi channel is only indicated in a brief monitoring purpose (midi routing inside Ableton can be tricky).

Velocity is by-passed and stays identical from in to out.

Notes Menus
Quick set the note received (send by your controler) you want to be converted and transmitted to the instrument. Eight converters are available, related to the typical hardware design of pads.
Grey menus ▼ notes received
Yellow menus ▼ notes transmitted

Got your device, really nice thanks, just had to modify all the objects receiving the notes, since they were clogging the undo history of Ableton.

@funnycat - would love to get your version. Can't use the other because of that issue.

For whatever reason C#1 doesn't seem to want to be converted. :/

Ooops, scratch that. I had some weird MIDI settings with a scale plugin before this device that was acting funny.
