because of no reaction on my post in the list, duplicated here.
Recently Ross asked about demands when he would extend the MIDI controlling
capabilities. I couldn't dig out the thread (in fact im'm too lazy :), so I like
to share some ideas here:
1. The Smooth factor is very cool for mapping buttons/keys (note on messages w/
velocity) to continuous parameters, the velocity and duration of an binary event
maps to a continuous parameter. It could improve the flexibility of this
technique, if this smoothing had separate values for rising/falling values = a
simple a-d envelope
2. I have always too less knobs. I could solve the problem by switching presets
on my keyboard, but this is somewhat separated from the mulching process. I
imagine a kind of "single contraption control mode", where a set of knobs on my
controller controls only one contraption selected in the patcher / has focus in
the parameter window. So I could map the same, say, 8 controller buttons to the
main parameters in every contraption (maybe this could be done by some kind of
automatism, left-right order or so). In other word, an option "if selected" in
every controller mapping.
3. Easier Controller mapping for generate stair-shaped mappings.
4. A (optional?) MIDI inlet on every contraption to map internal/processed MIDI
to parameters, this would help to realize all the LFO etc. demands by VST MIDI
