MIDI CC to CV?

Post by morbank » Sun Feb 09, 2020 2:25 am

Can SW Learner be used to convert a specific MIDI CC (in Live 10) into CV from a ESX-8CV? If so, how would this be done?

You would be better using Live's own parameter automation, of one of the ESX-8CV Combiner's Offset knobs.

Would I use the SW Trigger to route the signal to ESX-8CV Combiner? And if so what would I set Mode to? If not, how do I get the CC data into Combiner?

You don't need to put a signal into the Combiner. You just directly automate its Offset, and so create the signal there.

I see.

In my case however the CC data is coming into Live from an external sequencer. The external sequencer I am using is generating the MIDI note, velocity and CC data and I am also using it to provide clock sync for clips in Live. So I would need a way to send the CC data to the ES-40/ESX-8CV, right?

No, you send the MIDI data into Live, and Live uses it to automate the plug-in.

Is this done using a Max for Live plug-in like “CC Map8” or “ControlChange8”? Or do you know if a way to do this with out using Max for Live plugins?

No, it's a basic part of Live. "Edit MIDI Map" from the menu.
