Airturn AT-104 and MaxMSP

557-1

So you got an

[ Airturn ]AT-104 for Christmas. So did I. To go along with the MaxMSP hacking (as I did with the Korg nanoKontrol2) for my music-making, I decided to skip setting up MusicReader (for which the pedals were designed) and quickly tried to make sure it played nicely with my Max patches.

Air Turn Match Patch

 

The Airturn AT-105 uses a USB dongle– the BT-105 uses Bluetooth- and says it ’emulates standard keyboard button’ presses. While the Max patch and debouncing method are simple, I solved some problems other might benefit with– especially if your is a Mac– setting and resetting the keyboard type.


If you first plug in the dongle into the USB outlet, the instructions say the lights on the side of the dongle flash ‘to indicate a connection and in response to pedal presses’. Almost immediately, this OS X window appears:

It asks you press a specific key on the ‘keyboard’. I chose one of the pedals and pressed it.

Airturn Keyboard Setup

Shortly, it said it did not recognize the keyboard.

It then asked me to select the keyboard. The one you should pick is the ANSI (United States and others).

Airturn Keyboard Select

Here’s the beneficial part:  I originally picked the incorrect keyboard type– and Max would no recognize the pedal presses.

If you ever need to reset the type of a keyboard:

Delete this file:

/Library/Preferences/com.apple.keyboardtype.plist

Directions: 

  1. Unplug the dongle
  2. Delete the file
  3. Plug the ‘keyboard’ back in and Mac OS will ask you to set up it again.

 

Now, I can finally finish that piece for Alto Sax and Electronics.

 

Below is the Max Patch for Airturn with debounce.
