Funky color keyboard
Simple resizeable keyboard macro with adjustable colors etc
This is a macro from the metamusic II series for putting a funky color keyboard in your own designs. The macro attaches to a single multidisplay module. It draws a playable keyboard for you.
Settings are fully dynamic. The color of the natural and sharp/flat key background is completely adjustable. Ther are separate polyphonic pitch/gate inputs for lighting up the keys in red, green, or blue shades.
There are external inputs to set whether the orientation is horizontal or vertical; the aspect ratio of the keys; contrast of active note key color depending on velocity; the number of keys to display, and the low note.
There are four examples in the ensemble showing some basic layouts, as well as a simple control panel. To add to an instrument, you can set it the way you want and make the controls invisible, or substitute your own constants.
Its designed so it can display notes from multiple instruments simultaneously in different colors. For that, different instruments can attach to the red, green and blue P/G inputs.
