publishing Midi inputs/outputs?

I was wondering if there is any way to publish a midi input / output, so that it could be assigned by an external app or by a drop down box in an xcode created app.

Basically i'm trying to build a little LFO standalone app that receives internal / external midi clock, creates an LFO (with all its parameters published) which then it sends on to a MIDI CC. I'd like the inputs and the outputs, plus midi channels to be selectable via drop down menu's ideally. Is this do-able or outside of QCs sphere a bit?

probably doable

This sounds like it's possible (though it's a bit difficult for me to follow exactly what you're trying to do with published inputs/outputs). I'm not sure of the built-in midi patches, but our midi tools plugin patches have controllable channel selections etc, which sounds like it's what you're looking for. I'm not sure if our CC output patch is well-behaved yet though, so we might need to fix that for you, should you choose that route.

cool

ok great that's very interesting..

i want to have midi inputs/outputs published, so if i wanted to create a mini app (in xcode), i could have selectable midi ins and outs based on just the published items in QC. So in my mini app the user could select which midi channel and input the incoming signal is on, and which midi CC they want to send out the resulting data.. With the built in Midi stuff plugins, there seems to be no way to publish even a midi channel for example..

i will download your midi tools plug and give it a go..

thanks again
