I'm programming a database (Filemaker) that includes some midi-features (this is possible with the MBS Filemaker Plugin).
At the moment I can send note-on/note-off commands with a Filemaker-Script that works well. The problem is that the duration of the note is defined by a script-pause (note on message>script-pause in seconds>> note-off message) and that is not very precise, when I want to record the notes in a DAW. So I'm looking for a way to define the duration/length of the note (for exaple 1/8) with a midi-message/midiclock/etc., that comes after note-on and before note-off.
How can I manage this?
note-on code looks like this:
<syntax of plugin> & "144; 48; 95" = send note-on; note-value; velocity-value
note-off code looks like this:
<syntax of plugin> & "128; 48; 00" = send note-off; note-value; velocity-value
(don't pay attention to <syntax of plugin>, i can manage it in Filemaker).
With the plugin, I can send midi-messages, raw-messages and sysexhex.
Anybody has an idea?
