Mike Kelley was in a jam: \"Here\'s my problem -- my midi keyboard doesn\'t have a mod wheel (ugh) and I need a mod wheel to control volume (no other way around it with GPO).\"

(well, if you use an MFX-capable host, at least...)
Created specifically for Mike\'s problem, TenCrazy.com MFX PW-Map will remap your Pitch Wheel to send Continuous Controller information. I\'ve tailored the default parameters to Garritan Personal Orchestra, such that the detente position of the Pitch Wheel sends a Modulation event (CC#1) with a value of 96, with value 0 all the way down and 127 all the way up. If you want to (for whatever reason), you could reverse the direction of the wheel (127 to 0, going up), or use a different detente value: tweak to taste and save your personalized preset!
Also, you can assign one *direction* of the controller to a specific controller message: down-to-detente could be CC#1 0-127, while detente-to-up could be CC#7 96-0 to control a decrecendo of the entire ensemble! Even if you do have a Mod Wheel on your keyboard, little tricks like this might just make PW-Map an indispensable tool in your GPO arsenal.
Normally, all my MFX plugs are free, but for this instance I\'ve invented the \"BeggingWare\" payment model. Essentially, if you like this tool and can use it, drop Gary Garritan a line (or post in this thread!) and suggest that I\'m *such* a nice guy that I deserve a discount on GPO!

Yeah, no shame, I know. [img]images/icons/tongue.gif[/img] And too much time on my hands! [img]images/icons/cool.gif[/img] But I hope some of you guys can get some use out of this; I just want to support this great community that I hope to join soon! [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
