Hey ChucKists,

We've released a small toolkit of ChucK and C code that can used to make instruments with the physical input capabilities of the laptop. Check it out and let us know what you think and if anything is broken.

Keep on ChucKin'

Rebecca and Ge

Rebecca is our newest, super wonderful, super brilliant soundlab grad student from McGill (Master's in music tech) and The Ohio State University (undergrad). She's also a fierce flutist (pbs is but one example). Visit her homepage here at Princeton CS. I think she is going to rule the Galaxy (and beyond) someday soon.

hello,

i was looking at the SMELT files, because i want to write a HID to Midi translator, to improve the remote control ability of my DAW (Ableton Live). In one of the trackpad chuck files i saw how to use the mouse wheel. But a comment there says that you need chuck version 1.2.0.8 to do so.
But where do i get that version?
Is there a place (sourceforge?) from where i can download an actual development version?
When will the next official version be released?

and by the way, i'm new to chuck but it is one of these software, i immediately loved to use - a really powerful and intellectually and aesthetically satisfying piece of software - thanks to the inventors.

Oops. Sorry about that. Yeah, 1.2.0.8 is still in development and is only accessible via CVS.

We are hoping within the next month.

Ah, cool, a new version with HID stuff. Btw, I have used a joystick to send MIDI notes and cc to Ableton live in conjunction with the code discussed here (which cruft is included as an attachment in the last post):

i got it.
and could extend my hid2midi translator framework.
i needed the mousewheel to select tracks via midi notes, which works good now.
i use the whole thing to have a better workflow when arranging a piece of music with Ableton Live: fast movement between tracks, one keyboard-button for one function (solo, arm etc. ) which is then applied to the chosen track only, defining solo-groups etc.
so far i use only mouse and keyboard.
maybe i will buy a joystik game controller too. which spezifications must it fulfill to be useable with chuck?

thanks
hannes

I've used two joysticks so far, both very inexpensive, the Saitek ST90 and the Saitek ST290.

Also, if you are using windows and you want to do hid2midi, you might want to look at Rejoice http://www.dioramadesign.net/blog/rejoice-midi-software/

Rejoice does a straight mapping of hid buttons and axes to notes or CCs. Don't recall if it recognizes the mouse wheel or not, it is easy to configure.

The advantage of using chuck for this kind of translation is that you are able to combine the inputs and make things happen conditionally. Also, Rejoice is totally freeware, but as such it is unsupported and no longer updated.

hi hi Smile

just found smelt while googling for a way to use my macbook's touchpad as a midi controller (for instruments in logic pro or whichever).

tp-raw.ck looks like a promising start, tho i haven't tried it out yet. another thread on this forum suggests that chuck can be used to send midi to other hosts, so that's all the requirements covered i think Smile

can anyone confirm that smelt/chuck/miniaudicle can do what i'm wanting? in fact, has anyone done it already? (in fact, if it would be a quick job for those who know what they're doing, is anyone feeling particularly charitable? hey, you never know 'til you ask Laughing )

cheers!

Yes, you can do that, you'd need to set up routing from ChucK to Logic using a virtual MIDI port but I think OSX has facilities for those build in.

Welcome!
