HID to MIDI

6 posts in this topic

Being into modding and controllerism/house dj I like to make my own ways of playing music. I have a drawing pad and I was interested into turning it into an x/y axis pad or "kaos pad" for effects and what not. Using mostly reason 4 and ableton live they don't support HID (human interface data) but they do support midi. Anyone have any intermediary programs they know of that will convert the data?

they idea came from Ean Golden using a guitar hero controller as a sampler to play live.

a program called MIDI Yoke might be able to help. I used to interface a USB xbox controller with ableton and reason. Don't know if it would work for a graphics tablet though.

yeah I have found some that work in a way that you can assign buttons to keystrokes then assign the keystrokes to whatever you want. But in reason 4 you have a virtual xy pad and I wanted to take advantage of that. Thanks tho. I have a friend whos going to toss me a ps3 controller to mess with. I guess traktor is hid compatible and I will be getting that soon enough. I just wanted to figure a way to make my studio just that much more nerdy. I mean im already installing my mpc and keyboard controller in a metal suit case and making a new face plate for it.... just to have everything all in one. at least thats the plan.

You're entering into an interesting area of play. I've been designing systems for this type of interaction for while. In terms of particular controllers, there are a lot of electronics out there that you can mod to control MIDI/Audio/etc. Find the one that best suite how you want to interact with your computer.

You can see examples of the stuff I've done here. Note that this system runs over a network, so you can control apps remotely.

As a side-note, my company does sell the gloves used in this video (which work with most modern media apps which accept Open Sound Control Protocol). We sell them for $69, but I'd cut you a deal being a BinRev member.

good luck on your project.
