Hello. Are there any way to make the Aalto sequencer moves one step further each time I hit a note on a midi keyboard? I don’t find how to set the plugin for this.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Well, after playing a while with the device, I realize that aftertouch is maybe not the most appropriate midi message to use for this purpose. The rotation works but, between notes, Aalto resets the aftertouch to zero. That can be problematic for sounds with long release.

So here is an alternate version that use standard Control Change (CC) messages. Accordingly, rather than connecting the Aftertouch output to the sequencer offset, it’s one of the 3 Mod outputs that has to be used (with a CC of your choice).

For those interest by the topic, I did a small Max for Live patch that complements Aalto for providing this feature.

I’ve chosen to make use of the aftertouch for that purpose, as Aalto owns a dedicated output for aftertouch in its modulation matrix, which allows me to enable the feature depending on the patch … (and also because my controller has no aftertouch anyway! ;-P )

Each time you hit a note, the patch rotates around the values of the aftertouch scale. You can make it run forward, backward or in alternate directions.

To make it work
1. Drop the Max for Live patch just before Aalto in the chain
2. In Aalto, connect the aftertouch output from the key section to the offset input of the Sequencer.
3. Then set the main offset value at zero and crack its modulation value to its max.

Have fun!

Hi Randi. Thanks for your quick reply. I can only encourage you to implement this. It would be great to have such a feature. That would enable a diversity of sounds while playing. Personally, I would love to see the 2 states [Int/Host] switch moving to a three stage one [Int/Host/Key or Gate].

While waiting, I’ll try to circumvent this limit with a complementary Max for Live device.

Kudos for your work! Aalto is my main and favourite plugin when I play live.
