Sorry things have been crazy out here we are energizing our substation. 145 wind turbines will soon be up and running.

Hope that video helps explain things.

I want turn a MS-20 midi controller into a closer realization of the real thing. I purchased one about a year ago and never use it because it needs to be plugged in to a computer and running windows, there was a mac version but it wasn't Universal Binary that may have changed....

Korg's website says the latest version of the Mac driver is 1.0.7, and is a universal binary. (That's assuming I've got the right MS-20 picked out...)

If I understand you, you wish to replace keyboard and mouse actions with some knobs and switches.

Unless your knobs and switches already have an program interface you will have to construct one. At that point converting it to a socket server to interface with AutoHotkey or other macro scripting program is fairly easy. (You can use your remote control to control most of them).

That assumes one way communication. In your case if you require two way communication (the knobs on the controller keyboard change the state of the knobs on your extension box) you'll need to incorporate a usb sniffer.

so you're trying to do something like this (http://synhouse.com/MS-20-Notes/MS-20-Notes.html)?

any midi soft can probably accomplish what you want off a serial cable or off a midi cable depending on how you want to play with it. just connect the switches or pots to the cable in appropriate fashion, and use the midi softs outs to drive the ms20

Nope, he is using the MS-20 midi controller to drive the Korg simulation software on the netbook.

He wants to hide the netbook in the midi console and be able to start up the netbook and launch the sim. software via controls on the controller.

Yes and this is what I would like to do but in order to map a midi note to a specific event "turn on Audio input" you need to click on it with the mouse. There is nothing internally programed in the MS-20 program that will map Midi data to that event.

Further it would be pretty neat to throw an 8 or 16 step sequencer on the top of the MS-20 and have it control the machine.
