Hello everybody,

does somebody know where I can order a customized Logic Pro midi script or is somebody here in the forum who could make it for a fee? I posted my request on different freelancer sites like Fiverr. But unfortunately without success...

Ok. Although I asked for this several weeks ago in an extra post. Here ist what I'm looking for: I'm looking for someone who can write me a customized java script for Logic Pro's midi fx scripter. This is what the script hast to do: I want a certain note (that is free assignable) to repeat the note before. E.g. I assign C3 to be the repeat trigger. If I play C2 the script plays C2, if I play C3 after that the script plays again C2. A second Variation of the script should be, that it only plays the second (repeat trigger) note and not the first one.

Wow! My original post is already two years old. Unfortunately I did'n find help with this task. Neither here nor on Fiverr or any other platform. But since I don't have enough time to learn java script I want to ask again: Can anybody write a simple midi FX script for me or can tell me where I can gat one?

Can you describe what you are trying to achieve with this?

Sometimes having a clear idea of what that would produce in the end and what the purpose is, it could spark a different workaround or something.

I'm not a Javascript expert at all, but maybe other people would be able to offer some guidance with that extra info, I guess.

My aim is to accompany myself on a midi bass pedal while playing e.g. a guitar.

 

The idea is to play a bass note in the range of e.g. C0 to C1 and then trigger the fitting chord with e.g. D1 by using an instance of Logics MIDI FX chord trigger.

 

Basically it is similar to most guitar chord libraries like the ones from Ujam or Native Instruments. In a certain range you can define the chord and then there are keys to trigger the notes...

It seems like a very complex thing to create... not sure if that would be possible with just the Scripter or not... Have you tried those forums like StackExchange and all that? There are a lot of developers and stuff like that. Maybe you can find someone?

Now my question is: do you think it would be worth the money to pay someone a lot of cash to do something that maybe you can already find on one of those companies you mentioned?

Good advice. Thank you. I will check out SteckExchange. As I'd like to make some gigs with the bass pedal I would think it's worth the money. But so far, I couldn't find someone to help me who is experienced with java and logic...

I think there are a lot of Scripter scripts which can be done in a few minutes...and that's fine to ask, but I don't really like to spend a lot of time writing one-off custom scripts for people. I prefer to help you learn how to do it yourself. In the case that its NOT a simple script, then I definitely don't want to do it for less than $100/hour, so you do the math and decide if that would be worth it for you.

 

I have shared some Scripter scripts on gitlab that I spent dozens of hours on, thousands of lines of code...I did those because I use them, and because I felt a wider audience might benefit. But one-off custom scripts are generally only useful to one person.

 

if you can explain your script's exact needs in a post such that I can code it in about 5 minutes, I will do my best if and when I feel like it. But I do tend to try to express things in more of a teaching fashion so that all of you will learn how to write those little 5 minute scripts..its not that hard.....honestly..

 

If a certain script request seems like a more generally useful thing to do, I might spent up to an hour on it for free and for the learning experience for everyone too, but that is not going to be often, mostly I see on here people asking for a custom script that does an exact thing they need and it will only be useful for them. In which case, what I say is, spend a little time learning Scripter...its not that hard.

 

Regarding the bass pedal I'm not sure why you even need a script at all. Why can't you just use Chord Trigger...please explain more exactly the behavior. If its something I can whip out in a few minutes maybe I will, I'm home in self quarantine today.

Thanks for your reply. I totally understand your point of view. In general I'm also a fan of self-education. But right at the moment I'm lacking time and there are so many online courses to finish before I start one about java script.

 

But here is the description of what the script exactly has to do:

 

If I press a key in a certain range the script shall store but not send that note. If I press a second key (=the trigger key) only the first note shall be played and released. For Example: The range is defined from C0 to B0, the trigger ist assigned to C1. I press C0: No event. I release C0: No event. I press C1: C0 plays I release C1: C0 stops I press C#1 (or any other key that isn't assigned as range or trigger key): No event. Second Example: The range is defined from C0 to B0, the trigger ist assigned to C1. I press E0: No event. I hold E0: No event. I press C1: E0 plays. I release E0: No event. I release C1: E0 stops I press C#1 (or any other key that isn't assigned as range or trigger key): No event. So, what is the purpose of the script? I am a musician. I want to play guitar and accompany myself with a midi bass pedal, like the one in the picture below. I would use 2 instances of midi instruments in Logic Pro X. The first is e.g. a bass that ist played without the script. And the second is e.g. a piano. The trigger key shall play the keys in the assignable range wich run through a second instance of a Logic Pro stock MIDI FX that modifies the single note in a complete chord.

 

That's it. Thanks for reading.

Yes, I plan to use Chord Trigger MIDI FX in the second instance. But in the first instance I have to define the note, what I pan to do with my left foot, and than trigger the note, what I plan with my right foot, and THEN run it though the Chord Trigger...

With time, and much much emotional pain I've been leading towards favoring self-education. Although I have always valued self-education as one of the best ways to improve your skills, for some reason historically it's been hard to me. Definitely these days it's easier than before to self-educate yourself with so many tools and free online courses (many other premium resources). Trick to me is to not get overwhelmed and not to focus in perfection but progress 👍

To the progress I've been having on this this week I downloaded several apps/pluggins to help me edit images and videos, like I've said it's very difficult emotionally to me but it really helps to see tutorials and just follow them through... ahh self-education so important but so hard to  me xD
