    Default midi controller help

    hi i am using quick show with a novation remote zero sl midi controller.
    the thing i want to do is to be able to use a joystick to control the x/y position
    but dont know if i can do this,??
    i have seen that there are various pc joystick to midi softwares, but have no idea how to use them ,and how i would patch it so that it will work along side the novation and that quickshow will see it
    hope some one can help
    thanks

    ever hear of glovepie?
    you need to install that and PPjoy to emulate a joystick.
    but i don't know what how the novation remote zero sl looks, I might be able to map this for you, that's why.

    not at the moment, let me verify this download for you and link you the right one.
    PPJoy is a virtual joystick/gamepad driver so that might be the reason

    I guess you downloaded it from this source? http://ppjoy.bossstation.dnsalias.org/

    well allow it in your virus scanner.
    it's safe

    controller but for a pc

    woa this is very very hard to explain with text badger.
    it's not hard to do, but the explaining is.
    I have to think of a way to properly and clearly explain this to you.
    for one thing is that you can first try the automapping function if it actually sees the novation, else manual mapping is needed *i needed to do this with the korg nanokontrol* but In most cases you don't need to.

    Default Not sure if this helps

    I use " JOYTOKEY" as a USB to KEYBOARD to MIDI mapper. But im using it as an ABLETON Live contoller. Might Help.
