Midi Aftertouch

Hey there,

i bought the MPD218 from Akai because i’ve seen that it also has the possibility to use aftertouch.
In my naivity i thought that it would be very easy, like after the first touch of the pad the values would then be consistently send out for how long i press the button. Like the behaviour of force sensitive resistors connected to an arduino. It is not that way.

I found this old thread: Getting MIDI Aftertouch data into vvvv

But I can’t really make use of it and every node I searched in VL doesn’t relate to anything like “aftertouch” or “pressure” or something like that.

Can someone point me in the right direction?

Anyone got some idea??
