Wacom2MIDI


This morning i have been working on a basic Wacom to MIDI patch. Currently, the patch features the following:
  • The tablet's drawing area is divided into eight sections (a grid of four horizontal and two vertical divisions).
  • Each division can send either note on / off information with velocity data or continuous controller data.
  • If the lower button of the graphire 3 pen is pressed and the pen makes contact with an area on the tablet, then a note on message is sent.
    • In this case, the pitch is predetermined by the user and the velocity is determined by the horizontal position of the pen within that area of the tablet.
  • If the lower button of the graphire 3 pen is not pressed and the pen makes contact with an area on the tablet, then continuous controller messages are sent.
    • In this case, the controller number is predetermined byt he user and the controller value is determined by the horizontal position of the pen within that area of the tablet.
  • The MIDI out device and channel are set globally for all eight areas.

so maybe i'm stupid
and not terribly computer savvy
but I can't figure out how to use that patch in maxmsp
i just got both and aren't really that familiar with it.
if you could enlighten me, it'd be super helpful.
thanks!
