    So Good!. I could not do what I do without this program.
    My Pipes keep getting more and more complicated. Haha

    Just wondering, is there anyway to rout a virtual output back into one of the virtual inputs?

    could bore you with the details of why I need this, but it would be so friggen handy

    Cheers

    okay, I think I figured it out, but seems a dodgy way of doing it. I downloaded the program twice and renamed one "router" instead of MidiPipe. with two versions of the program open at once, I am able to select a virtual output as an input in the Midi In tool... haven't tested it yet though...

    I was hoping for the Yamaha ez ag midi gtr velocity fix. It appeared to be set up correctly but wasn't filtering out the notes when fingering the frets. I'm using Sampletank in Pro Tools le.

    Hi,

    this software is awesome!
    One feature request;) How about being able to make child pipes?
    Say I want to use the key mapper feature but then I want to make it change the keys depending on the incoming velocity.

    Example:
    I use this software mainly when I´m playing the Yamaha DTXplorer midi drum kit (there´s no way of changing the midi mapping in there), into EZdrummer running on Pro Tools. The problem is that none of those speak together correctly since EZdrummer doesn´t use the GM drum setup.

    Using midi pipe I am able to remap the incoming notes to the correct samples but I can´t make them change depending on the note velocity thus changing the sample (key) when Hit soft, med or hard.

    Anyway, your software rocks big time! Thank you so much.

    Yes a manual or tutorial would help a lot...

    I'm a midi illiterate. A manual would be very helpful, preferably "midipipe and midi for dummies"
    Thanks.

    There are very good MIDI tutorials out there:
    http://www.midi.org/about-midi/tutorial/tutor.shtml

    If you understand MIDI, understanding MidiPipe is quite simple.

    ZERO DOCUMENTATION!
    It looks obvious, but after a couple hours of tinkering, I accomplished nothing. A tutorial of any sort would make this program accessible to people.

    Please take a look at the "Use" section of the "ReadMe.rtf" for a quick introduction. Also look at the many examples in the Examples folder.

    If you have more questions you might find the answer in the MidiPipe forum:

    or send me an Email: nicowald@mac.com

    brilliant. the hercules dj console for mac has its buttons set as continous controllers for some unknown reason of utter stupidity. one hour from downloading midipipe, i've now got all the buttons on the controller giving note on/off messages. hallelujah.

    the gui could do with a little work, being able to duplicate pipe objects would have saved a lot of time.

    I just downloaded it last night. Once I had worked out how it works, I was listening to old keyboard music in its intended temperament. Also I want to write a dynamic tuning program. MidiPipe's Applescript capability will let me work on the algorithm while it takes care of the basic midi ins and outs itself. For someone like me with only basic programming knowledge, this is fantastic. One thing, I think I accidently created a couple of midi loops, which locked OSX completely. Watch out for this... otherwise the program is fantastic!

    This little program is the goods.
    I'm using it to route all midi from my microkorg into my sequencer, into an applescript trigger for instant pattern changes and track mutings on the fly, and also back into the microkorg.

    I do have a feature request though- is it possible to have a variable input in the transpose tool so that notes can be transposed by a variable number of notes/octaves up or down? The variable could be the last value of a controller input, in the form
    a*(value + b) + c
    where a, b and c are integer constants.
    I've tried a version using applescript trigger, but unfortunately there is a noticable delay caused by the execution of the script which is not desirable in a musical instrument. I've found the applescript trigger is useful for once-off commands that are not time crucial.

    Unless I'm really confused, there's one obvious piece of functionality still missing: write MIDI data directly to a file. Not special messages, the whole darn MIDI stream should be redirectable to an Midi File Format (MFF, .MID) file.
