Yes. Enter whatever values you want into it to output.
THE OUTPUT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE DEFAULT LP LAYOUT!
The whole point of using Bomes, is that you can take an input midi message and translate it into whatever you want, then output it. So let's say I have a midi keyboard with two keys on it: C1
My translator can be anything I want:
Or I can output midi cc:
The output is entirely independent from the input...the input only serves as a trigger for whatever you want the output to be.
How are you getting your output btw...are you capturing midi notes from the LP? I'm trying to understand why you keep on thinking that the default LP pad messages have any relevance to the output
Ok. I used detect midi to detect a pad on my LP for the INCOMING. Then I also used capture midi for the OUTGOING MESSAGE, again from my LP. However - I just used that as a reference and manually changed it. The 90 stays the same - because that's a note on message, and the 7F is for velocity, which also stays the same. The only thing that needs changing are the two middle digits which relate to the midi note. You'll see if you change that string of six numbers [xx] [xx] [xx] that the outgoing midi message will show you exactly what it's doing.
I wasn't aware that values had to be entered in hex, but still - changing the middle values is pretty straightforward and as you go up incrementally so do the note values. Bomes does give the formatting for that and other types of messages:
It's just a matter of getting the correct string, then the correct hex values to populate it, although for the most part you only ever need the hex value for the actual note or the CC value (the two numbers in the middle of the string).
Hope that helps
