I've built a midi controller in pd that takes incoming ASCII numbers from my laptops qwerty keyboard and converts the data to midi note on off messages to control a synth I'm building. Ive got some good functionality out of it but I can only have one voice at a time i.e. i cant have any polyphony/play chords when holding down more than one key...I can see this is because in the [key] object I'm using can only output one value at a time.
Are there any objects that could output multiple ASCII numbers at a time? The patch is below, one inside open the sub-patch labelled QWERTY
