I am searching for how to use available devices as a sustain pedal.

Is there ready to use software with low latency that can handle input and translate it to midi?

Or C#,C++ example how to send MIDI messages in respond of user input.

I found sustain is


with value 0 to 63 = Off, 64 to 127 = On


Bome MIDI Translator Pro can translate many input sources (MIDI, keyboard, serial port) into MIDI messages. You'd have to check whether your gaming USB pedal works with it.

The Windows MIDI API does not allow applications to create MIDI ports, so you probably also need to install a virtual MIDI port driver.
