Alien DD-55 Midi Drum Trigger Interface
Midi Drum Trigger Processor
A midi trigger processor for the Yamaha DD-55 drum pad, however it can also be used with most other midi trigger devices.
The Alien DD-55 Interface processes midi note input and enables it to be displayed and mapped to any midi note and channel for output.
The midi output can trigger other Reaktor instruments, external midi sound sources, or be recorded into a midi sequencer etc.
The Alien DD-55 Interface also enables the setting of a user defined Note duration. This feature was the main reason for developing this processor, and it means you can use the Yamaha DD-55 drum pad with midi sound sources or midi environments that can't deal with it's native VERY short midi Note duration times.
You can also use it to easily trigger sustained sounds for the duration of your choosing.

Added 'Mono Mode' function and preference setting.
When enabled, 'Mono Mode' ensures that no more than one Note On is active at any time from each Processor in the Alien DD-55.
This means that when the Midi output is recorded into a Midi sequencer, it will be more tidy visually and therefore easier to edit. If 'Mono Mode' is NOT enabled, longer 'Note Duration' settings may cause overlapping notes to occur for the same Channel/Note. This setting may also affect the sound of some sustained sounds, depending on if the sound source device allows more than one instance of a sound to be played back on the same Midi channel/note concurrently.
Added 'Note Out AutoTest' function and preference setting.
'Note Out AutoTest' enables the sending of a Midi Note On event whenever you change a Processor's 'Midi Out' Note number value.
This speeds up and simplifies the process of choosing sounds to trigger from a Midi sound source. Every time you choose a new Note value, any sound receiving on that Channel and Note will be triggered once automatically.
Improved compatibility with trigger devices that send longer Note On durations.
More help in the Readme for setting up.
Fixed incoming Midi indicator light that wasn't working reliably on short duration notes.
Fixed bug where trigger was being sent from Note Off, not Note On.
Work around for bug where Test trigger was not working when using Cubase 4 as a host, was working fine in standalone mode.
