Getting midi to trigger different images

Although I am fairly new to Quartz I am wondering how I can assign the keys on a midi keyboard to specific image files.I have the Kineme patches for midi. I hope this makes sense. Frank

Use a string multiplexer or demultiplexer, with the midi note as the index.

Thanks, very much appreciated. I can see how to set one image for the reset and one image for the "note on"but I am unsure how to set up twelve images for twelve notes all going to the same input. Thanks Frank

as Chris said, use a multiplexer patch. Connect your midi note to your multiplexer index (maybe use some math so that your first midi note = index 0), connect the multiplexer to some billboard. Et voila !

If your 1st midi note is 36, for instance, substract 36 so that it will correspond to index 0.

Anyhow, do some tests, and post your comp if you still can't manage to do it. I would recommend having a look at the included QTZ examples.

you can actually use the multiplexor as a midi step sequencer triggering notes on your keyboard as well as images.
