Button value set by variable controlled by slider

Hello Steve and all.

I can’t program, please point me to a video, or try to explain how I can set a key value by a variable controlled by slider

Thank you very much

Hi and welcome to the Bome community!

Bome has two types of variables

  1. Local
  2. Global

Local variables only occur with a translator and are not shared between translators. You can use the same local variable in different translators and the other translators will not be affected. There are 10 local variables oo,pp,qq,rr,ss,tt,uu,vv,ww, and xx

By contrast global variable can be shared between translators hence are public. Global variables are two letters with the first between g and z and the last a-z or 0-9 but exclude the local variables described above.

You can assign a variable from a fader as follows.

  1. Open a new project file and assign you incoming and outgoing devices as I have done below.

  2. Create a new translator and the click Capture MIDI. Then move your fader. and then click on the message in the capture box to move the incoming action to the translator.


  1. In this case I want the input value to to stored in a local variable qq, so I change the value I captured (7) to any value set variable to value qq


Now you are capturing the value of your fader into variable qq. You can use rules to manipulate the value if you would like. In this case, I’m just logging the incoming value with this rule.

Log ‘The incoming value is %qq%’

This is now what my Log Window shows when moving the fader.

Here is the project file I used for this demonstration.
Capture-to-qq.bmtp (931 Bytes)

There are lots of tutorials here that might help you further. I would recommend starting with the first two.

Thank you Steve
I’m so sorry to disturb you, the only reason I couldn’t do it myself is because I didn’t know the difference between local and global variants, and on my project I was using vv as a variant. It’s perfect now.
Can’t thank you enough
Kind wishes
