I wonder if it'd be easier or in any way preferable to instead just add lots more ways to modify/modulate how imported files play on their own, either in their properties as with sequencers (that's basically what I wanted when trying to paste stuff in), or with a collection of sort of internal MIDI FX, as in Logic. Or by adding the ability to host already existing MIDI FX plugins from elsewhere, in the playback chain…?colin@loomer wrote: ↑Sun May 24, 2020 10:33 am…Short answer: no, not yet. Essentially, it's because some MIDI files cannot be directly converted to step sequences. However, the general consensus seems to be that people want to be able to do this when possible, so I've made some progress on allowing this, and it will be possible in a future iteration.Related question:
Is it possible to import a MIDI file or any MIDI data from outside Architect into a mono or poly sequencer? Paste after copying from the DAW piano roll didn't work; long shot, I suppose.
I don't suppose you've had much time for, or maybe even any wish to, keep tabs on any other MIDI tricks other developers are getting up to these days, but fwiw, I must say I've been inspired by what John and Shane at Pluginguru.com are doing MIDI-wise with their new hosting device Unify, as it's just the sort of thing I'd like to do with Architect along with all else it offers. Here's a shot of two of the internal MIDI FX they've come up with for modifying MIDI file playback:
They're shown in action starting at 1:28:22 in this recent livestream:
Of course, Unify itself could already be hosted in Architect, and there's some chance they'll pop out these FX as individual MIDI FX plugins someday, so maybe it's not so important to duplicate what could just be hosted…
Just thinking aloud…
