Momentary button to send effect with max value

Submitted by Ruzbeh Resaei on Tue, 11/15/2022 - 14:52

I have a momentary button and I wanna send my send1 to max value (127). I also have a Knob1 that controls the send1. But additionally I want to have a that momentary button. For some reason I can't manage to send the value of the send1 to max when pressed.

I tried with reaction, but without success (but maybe there is a easier way):

Listener: Button 1o was pressed
Action Block1:
Condition: Button 10 latest velocity value is equal - 127
Action: MIDI Controller - send MIDI velocity value to Controller input Knob1 Value 127
Action Block2:
Condition: Button 10 latest velocity value is not equal - 127
Action: MIDI Controller - send MIDI velocity value to Controller input Knob1 Value 0

Maybe it's wront to send the velocity value to Knob1, but I couldn't find an option how to set the send1 directly.

Any ideas on how I can achieve this?
Any help is appreciated

Hey Ruz,

I think I had what you're going for in an earlier script of mine. Take a look at the stripped down script I attached and see if it helps.

Send 6 is the example, I have the first device control module mapped to the encoder and the second mapped to the button.

I hope this helps you.

Hi Neilib,

Thanks a lot for replying.
I see your button uses control type "Absolute". This however is toggling the send to min/max, am I right?

I had this working also, but I am looking a way to use the button momentary - meaning:
button pressed: send value = max
button released: send value = min

Here's the mapping I tried

Ruz, this is true... in the version I sent you I was using it as a send toggle, not a momentary. In this version I was using it as a channel switch to send to looper. After looking closer, I see the predicament/challenge you are calling out. The only immediate solution that comes to mind is to hard code the button as momentary. John may have some other tricks up his sleeves for you.

I thought I had a version of this that I used as a momentary dub delay send, but now I'm having a hard time finding it. I'll look around some more and if I find it, I'll share.

Hey Neilib, not sure if I understand what you mean with hard coding the button as momentary. If there's an option, please let me know.

Thanks anyway for reaching out.

I finally managed to solve it :)
What helped me was following John C's advises on this question:
