Is it possible to combine two midi button inputs to create a single output keystroke?
I am trying to convert my midi controller which has 16 buttons on it into a keyboard to type with, purely for fun. Since there are 26 letters in the alphabet and I plan on splitting the letters into 3 different "layers" that I will need to toggle between, I created two different "switch layer" buttons, that when held down individually, changes the function of all of the keys. This makes it possible to access all 26 lowercase letters.
I have created an "uppercase" button as well that I can hold down to access the uppercase version of each letter on the default layer 1.
But I am stumped trying to figure out how to type an uppercase button that's located on the 2nd or 3rd layer, since that would require holding down both my "switch layer" and "uppercase" button at the same time. I have a clunky workaround in mind, but I'd like to know if there is a simple solution here since I'd prefer to use the same "uppercase" button no matter which layer I am typing on, instead of creating a different uppercase button for layer 2 or layer 3. I have no programming experience but am willing to look into whatever it takes to make this work.
