I've got an X-Keys16, a single MIDI controller and a slew of different MIDI sound modules. What I've been trying to do today is set up an interactive MIDI patchbay, where the xkeys controller enables/bypasses the flow of MIDI data (note, cc, etc) between my one input device and various sound modules.
button 1 : MIDI controller > MIDI module 1 (on/off)
button 2 : MIDI controller > MIDI module 2 (on/off)
button 3 : MIDI controller > MIDI module 3 (on/off)
The issue I'm having is the lack of monolithic, catch-all MIDI device input and output nodes. As it is now I can only figure out how to do this in a very granular per-note and per-note velocity way for both the source and the destination. Unless I'm missing something it looks like it would require over 500 nodes per routing just for notes (0-127 note and velocity, input and output) - which, while possible, is daunting.
In theory it seems like this should be straight-forward to configure as I'm not trying to augment any data just toggle streams on/off -- but it seems the tools available are more surgical and what I need is broad-stroke.
Is there an easier way to accomplish this that I'm missing?
If not, would it be a reasonable feature request to ask for some high-level MIDI I/O nodes to facilitate this kind of routing?
