there are a few of us who have different usecases of reading and writing into IOboxes from somewhere else than the connected nodes.
i had a chat with milo about what could be the best way in order to read/write ioboxes more easily. wouldn’t it be nice to write into them with OSC, UDP, ARTNET, whatever, MIDI, external devices etc.
Here is one approach.
- IOboxes would need additional markup (eg. tags) in order to identify and classify them.
- a node that returns the id’s of the ioboxes with the given multiple (and/or) tags.
- a node that that returns the values of all pins of ioboxes with the given ids.
- a node that writes values into pins of ioboxes with the given ids.
that would give the most flexible posibility to synchronize internal and external interfaces with the patch parameters.
what you think?
