Do you have any options available for mapping to midi on a PC? Is there likely to be any in app mapping to midi so I can use a direct midi out in the future? I'd love to be able to use this directly with my synths and leave the laptop at home...

Hi, I think you can use pure data on a pc, it's not as friendly as osculator but I think it will work? I use a mac but I've setup touchosc on my sons ipod and pd on his net book and that's all working fine. Pd and midi yoke we used. Performer is awesome.

Hi Clearscreen,

We've added some info to our new FAQ about this -> viewtopic.php?f=1&t=11 - hope this helps get you started... and please let us know if you feel there is still some information missing, we want to get you playing with Performer as easily and as quickly as possible!

Jiggle - thanks! Yup, Pure Data is definitely an option and we're looking into how to make that more convenient for Windows users. Thanks for your comments. :D

Hmmmm. Clicked on the FAQ about this link to get clearer setup info for PD & Midi yoke. It lead me to "The requested topic does not exist."

Thanks for the reply - looking forward to native midi support! For now i'll have a look at using usine to do OSC translation, its a bit easier than dealing with pd...

Hey clearscreen, we would all really appreciate it if you could share how you specifically setup & use Usine with Konkreet.

Hi all,

Working on a standalone program for Windows PC which listens to Konkreet Performer and passes on MIDI to whatever music software you want to control - including VST synths etc.

Just fine-tuning it - basic functionality at present, but will eventually support custom mappings etc

Regards,

Patrick

I've had a lot going on over the past two weeks, so this had to take a backseat, but I do hope to upload a fully-working example by the end of next week.

Basically, the program runs by itself on a Windows PC and listens to port 8000 by default - changing KP's data into MIDI in the same way as the default KP Osculator patch. It will allow users to select which MIDI Output they want to send the info to. Are there any other features people want to suggest from the start?

I've just had to get some help changing a MIDI library I am using so it will allow me to send pitch bend messages and make use of KP's ribbon

Regards,

Patrick
