Is there a simple MOMENTARY Mod Line Press/on, release/off

Postby crsmarker » Thu Jan 08, 2015 4:55 am

Hey all,

All I want is a "simple" MOMENTARY CC mod line for Softstep 2 so I can trigger my GTAK multi pedal preset.
By momentary I mean Press and hold on, release off.
The Even Harmonic Gtak triggers Kontakt 5 instruments in various ways, half of which are ordinary toggle CC's and the other half are momentary CC's. I could mess around for an afternoon and figure something out but it would be nice if this was easier to figure out, or included in the presets KMI offers. :D

I have Bome's MTP but I am using the looper preset with Ableton live on Soft Step 1. I don't think I can or want to have to open a second instance of Bome's MTP and use a preset they offer to accomplish a momentary functionality.

Sorry if I am being obtuse. It helps me think to write it down.

In the Advanced Editor:

The Foot On source outputs 127 when pressed and outputs zero when the key is released.

The Pressure Live source outputs the amount of pressure currently being applied to the key. The value will drop to 0 when the key is released.

Do either of these give you your desired behavior?

I changed the Table setting to Linear from the drop down menu and that solves the problem but I don't understand what that means :oops: :?:

Data Source: Foot On
Raw: 0
Offset: 0
Result: 0
Table: Linear
Min: 0
Max: 127
Smooth: 0
Delay: 0
Value: 0
Message Type: CC
CC#: 58

Linear in this case means normal, as in a 1:1 ratio for values. Always use that table unless you want your values inverted for example, or to have a different curve like logarithmic.
