newbie: command + midi trigger

new to MIDI Translator, just testing out the trial version…

I searched the forum and got sidetracked by many other topics. :wink:

just wondering if anyone can tell me how to set up a trigger that combines a physical key [Command] plus a midi note? for example: I want to open Adobe Illustrator when I press COMMAND + C4

I assume this is possible, I just can’t figure out how to do it!

any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks in advance!

Hi, although the incoming keystroke cannot be suppressed, you could have one translator that sets a global variable when command is pressed


Then set it back to 0 when the command key is releases


Then have incoming note-on of C4 any velocity and a rule like:

if ga==0 then exit rules, skip outgoing action.

Then for the outgoing action to launch adobe illustrator.
