> Controller Thinner
The Universal Transmitter transmits any one, two, or three byte
message to receiving devices. You Here's
a MIDItool Craig Anderton uses in his personal studio to thin controller
messages flowing from his digital mixer. The Control Thinner prevents
crashes and timing problems caused by too much controller information.
Select the type of controller message you want to thin (up to 3
types can be thinned at a time), and then set how much thinning
to apply. Use the Controller Thinner to limit the controller data
going into or out of a sequencer, troubleshoot a malfuntioning device,
or thin data genterated by a guitar or wind controller.
Mouse over the buttons, LEDs, and potentiometer to see what they do.
HOW DO I...
...SELECT A MESSAGE TYPE FOR THINNING?
Select a message type with the MESSAGE TYPE keys:
CTL (controllers 0-63), BEND (pitch bend), or AFT
(channel and key aftertouch).
...SET THE AMOUNT OF THINNING FOR EACH MESSAGE TYPE?
The amount of thinning prodcued for the selected
message type is set using the +/- keys and/or the
...OPERATE THE THINNER? ;
All controller messages are thinned and retransmitted
according to the assigned thinning amount, M. If M=0,
every message is thinned (rejected). If M=31, every
32nd message of that type is thinned (rejected).
For any valid value of M, every M+1 message is
rejected. M represents the number of messages that
will be passed before one message is rejected.
Thinning is channel independent.
...BYPASS THE THINNER?
Press the BYPASS keys: CTL, BEND or AFT. Thinning
of that message type will be disabled. The
appropriate BYPASS LED will light. Pressing the
BYPASS key again enables thinning and turns the LED

The cursor arrow points to the parameter that will be
modified by the +/- keys and VALUE fader.
