Griffin Powermate sends MIDI to Watchout!

Managed to get more out of the Griffin Powermate because of Joshua Schnable's plugin to the open-source PureData software -



So now with a twist of the knob my Powermate is able to trigger Aux Timelines, vary a media item's opacity, volume, scaling, position, etc and play with the rotation and scaling like a vj. Granted it has less channels than a normal MIDI keyboard, but 8 channels of 'ModWheels' are enough for me.


The only inconvenience is that the .pd plugin window must be active to react to the Powermate, but this has not prevented it from sending the MIDI signal to Watchout Production.
