Back to the Push - now tap a grid button and you’ll see the colour no longer changes with velocity; this is because we’re now specifying it using the value from our live.numbox - so give that knob another twiddle while tapping and you’ll see the colour changing as you turn the knob:
The colour values range from 1 to 127 and don’t seem to follow any logical pattern (although I may be wrong) so 91 as shown is sort of Cyan, and 60 is Orangey-red.
Finally, while you’re bashing the Push’s buttons, have a look on your computer screen at the message box we attached to the output of the p push_grid. This is now displaying three numbers - the x and y coordinates of the button you’re pressing, plus the velocity with which you hit it (up to 127). This switches to zero when you release the button.
Next time we’ll be seeing if we can play an instrument with these values...
