    I guess there are two different things you want to do:

    1. Trigger a note when a signal is above/below/crosses a certain threshold
    2. Generate a MIDI CC from the envelope of a signal

    For the first point, Max for Live would certainly let you build something like this, but I couldn't find anything ready made.

    For the second, I found a device on ( and a metering plug-in from Blue Cat that also does it (

    That envelope follower from Maxforlive is genius! But, its not routable to a midi CC though. The Blue Cats peak meter is a good find.
