Creating an input driver is easy. This article will explain how you can create custom mapping of ctrl to bpm.
Create MYINPUTDRV.INI in the subdirectory indrv.
Create this content (for example, this is for my LPD8, K1 button, use midi learn later on to override the midi input code with your own)
Then use an excel file such as those below, to create a custom range mapping.

Excel version of the CTRL to BPM mapping example
Copy the values from the excel file into the INI file.
You will get something like this. (replace , by . if necessary, this depends on your regional settings).

Now save the INI and start midiclock, after setting the correct input code for your controller,
you can use this custom map. (and you can create any new one using calc or excel)
The resulting sample input driver is available here (rename to MYINPUTDRV.INI and place in indrv) .
