Ability to drive via midi file?
« on: September 07, 2019, 02:27:18 pm »
I know I can just plop it in a DAW, but if I'm using it standalone, it would be nice to be able to load/play a midi file.

That would be quite useful comparing a certain melody line across various instruments, without having to play it by hand each time

Same for the standalone instruments. Just a load/play control (with keyboard/midi hotkey too)

Added to this, it would be great to be able to embed MIDIs into a preset, so that you could easily demo the preset in action, 1 or more, then play any of those midis, or save them to disk

Of course you should also be able to play any preset MIDI with another preset

Having preset midis would really help get a feel for the preset

That would make Analog Lab a new instrument, which is interesting in itself.
You could also key a sequencer like the KEYSTEP and program different keys and have it play automatically.  Instead of saving a melody to disk, you'd save it to the keystep controller instead.  Keystep has 8 different steps each with up to 64 sub steps with up to (I believe) 10 keys per step.
All you need do is create a CONCERT, create a song and save each preset you want into that song.
Then use the keystep to play back step 1, stop, select the next preset, switch the keystep to step 2 then play it etc.
having a sequencer is great for things like this.
