I'd like to have the ability to make an ultimate workstation where I can map EVERYTHING to MIDI controllers, including loop start/end positions, screen layouts, input-output routing menus, adding-deleting tracks, just everything that can be clicked with a mouse or keyboard commands, just as much as possible. There are lots of things in the clips editing windows that could be mapped to MIDI as well.
Thank you for the reply, I'll ask more about it in the M4L forum branch. viewtopic.php?f=35&t=205656JoshG567 wrote:I've learned to map previously "unmappable" things by writing M4L devices to do it. Once you have a basic idea of the LOM it isn't that hard to whip something up.
What you can't do in a straightforward way with M4L you may be able to do with ClyphX X-Controls. Of the list of things you mention it sounds like the easiest way to add/delete tracks with MIDI controls. I've done the input routing stuff with M4L, as well as time sig changes, record quantize, undo/redo, maybe a few other things. Clip loop start/length are totally mappable - were you referring to something else in that regard?
