Hello, I want to move away from a complete DAW for live music.
I would still like to keep using usb Midi controllers such as beatstep, launchpad/apc mini or the more recent Akai Fire.
Some of these could work as an hardware counterpart of modules designed specifically for them, like managing memories, saving and loading patterns, allowing shortcuts on the device etc…
VCV-Prototype apparently won’t get to that point though it could be useful: controller integration doesn’t run at audio rate, that’s why scripting languages make sense and Prototype has all that ready for us.
My question is: where should I start from and what would be suggestions for prototyping with MIDI i/o? Forking and merging Midi-CV and CV-Midi into one module? Requestinf again to add Midi i/o to VCV-Prototype?
Note: there is currently a limitation that prevents to use SysEx, that’s blocking for now but will be fixed in v2 and a PR fixes it in the meantime. (https://github.com/VCVRack/Rack/pull/1713)
