mayby it is a little to late (i think there is still a concept of midi;.....see ROADMAP )
Midi southpole means: a contraption, that have an input, change it patternbased with envelopes like the normal southpole and an output. But( in this case) only midi in and audio out.
It works like this: Midi ,of a pianorole or performed live at the keyboard, goes to the midisouthpole and is only pitched(a note command or the velocity) or pitched through an envelope -patternbased (like the modwheel). In this midi-southpole is uploaded an Vsti.
It only gets the changed data from the southpole and is only programmed internal in itsself (you have assign the midi controlls).
Other Midi Modules:
-A five instrument loader with only pitch and gate for each(with a midi input like above)
OR the same but only a gate and pitch without loading but with five midi outputs. (for example to the midi southpols)
- a keyboard- splitter with one midi input and two midioutputs
-a keyboard- splitter with three midi outputs
- a keyboard assigner (to assign midi controles to others freely(with sometimes the help of envelopes))
-a midi dublicater with two midi outputs
-a higher pianorole to record or paint midi signals fast and without steps
(higher means: all the midicontrolls)
-all the audiocontraptions could have the opinion to be midi synced or clock-synced:
that means: Today they are only clocksynced.But Midi synced means that they do their work when the note-on signal appears. The bassline beginns to play its melody, the delay beginns to put out the audio, an it swings only until this moment(produced its echos).
But their automation(lane) is not effected! You can play parts of Audiomulch like an instrument and other swings after clock!!!!
