[Csnd] Question about midi controller precision and ctrl7

briandc

Hi everyone,

I'm using the ctrl7 command to link some FL sliders to midi controllers, but I see that the precision is not as close as when adjusting knobs with a mouse. Is there a way to specify a higher "resolution" in the ctrl7 code so that the knobs give more precise control?

Thanks!

Brian

Have you tried ctrl14 or ctrl21?  (And does your hardware support more
than 0-127?)  Otherwise, not having code to look at, you might just be
at the mercy of of MIDI's limitations.

I think you're right Steven. I'm not sure what the ctlno2 and ctlno3 numbers are used for, but my midi controller has just 0-127 available.

In the end it's not a big deal, using the mouse is probably the best solution anyway. Csound is so powerful that I'm learning things on a level that the average softsynth doesn't reveal! :)

I've looked at the alternatives to ctrl7, but I'm still not clear about how to use ctrl14/ctrl21. What numbers should be inserted for the extra parameters (most, mid, least-significant byte)?  Or do these require more than 0-127?
