Colin, any chance you could just build in a "MIDI CC Out" module into a future version of Architect? Just set the CC number, connect a mod source to it, specify the output and be done?
That’s one of the most simple things to do
Create a pack controller , set value for midi channel , controller nr and controller value ( send this also to the green read input )
In fact you don’t have to set the midi channel , you can route the output of the pack controller into a ‘ set channel ‘ module , this will give a new midi channel to the incoming data .

What is meant by the "pack" prefix? It sounds like it's implying a bundle of multiple signals/controls? But I don't see multiple items when I look at, say, a pack controller.

What do you mean by controller "nr"? And I don't see a green read input on the pack controller.

I also don't see a place to specify the midi CC#.

It's pack because you're turning a bunch of individual values into a single CC message containing those values (controller, value, midi channel) which will be sent each time the call inlet receives a signal.

Controller = CC so you specify the midi CC number on the controller inlet.

You pack values , for example if you sent a midi control that for cutoff , you also need to send additional information like midi channel
For the pack controller the leftmost nlet is the controll number , for cut off this is nr 74
The second input is the actual value that you want to send , the input next to that is the midi channel you want to send this controller data to , and the last input is the call input ( this sends out the data of the pack controller , iow an excute command ..you can control this with the actual knob or slider that sends out the values or you could use a metro clock so that the pack controller only sends out values every beat or 1/8th note etc..)
The midi channel can be added later by inserting a midi channel module
I am going to give a stupid analogy :lol: , say you want to send me a package
-the envelope/box is the module = tuple
-the street adress to which you're sending it to is the controller number (74 for cutoff )
-the city I live in is the midi channel
-the actual value that your sending ( controller data ) is the content of the envelope/box
-the (green call) call input is the courier delivering the package
hope that makes sense
