Topic: New Total Mix volume control utility for XP/Vista/7
I didn't really like the loopback cable approach to control the volume of the
Total Mix. So instead, I wanted to control the volume with my computer keyboard
via MIDI controller. To my knowledge, the only program being capable to route
MIDI controller data to keyboard is AutoHotKey. Since I have very little knowledge
about the MIDI API in AHK, the developer of GenMce (http://shoshin.110mb.com/genmce/)
helped me to realize this application. Kudos to him, he coded the whole application.
I only added the mute function.
So what you basically have is:
- Volume Up
- Volume Down
- Volume Mute
assigned to the corresponding multimedia keys on your keyboard.
We're still in development of the app. The basic functionality is
implemented but I want to integrate an OSD for the volume/mute state.
Oh, and I forgot to mention... you need to install MIDI YOKE (a virtual MIDI
port driver) to make this work. Works on x64 as well, since Total Mix is a
32bit app (thanks RME ).
So, stay tuned for the release! (no date yet)
