We have been telling people about our new data format that lets users copy note data between sequencers – currently Entrian, Impromptu Modular and Squinky Labs. We hope more sequencer will adopt is, as it’s super easy, and seems to be a useful thing.
We will be the first to admit that copying and pasting note data is a non-obvious thing to do with many sequencers, but we are hoping there are plenty of cool things people can do with this.
Personally, I’m hoping to see some “non sequencers” use this interchange standard, too. For example, it could be cool to copy a chord from Seq++ and paste it into a quantizer to set the scale (it’s very easy to create and audition scales in Seq++).
Of how about random-ish note generators? Maybe you could paste some pitches into them to seed them? Copy notes from them to take a snapshot of the generated music?
If any devs are interested in trying this, the spec is here: https://github.com/squinkylabs/SquinkyVCV/blob/master/docs/clipboard-format.md
If any module users would like to see note data interchange in your favorite modules, please go and suggest that to developers.
