For me, it would be nice, to choose an line-in-device as source for the plug-in-grabber. That way, one could easily sample external hardware or softsynths.
I assume, an interesting problem to solve here would be, how midi-events get send out without having the user to add a midi-out-device to the toolchain.
But perhaps, this could just be hidden?
Most likely, this could be achived by a lua-script…
Just an idea.
I’ve been wanting this for a while now. Realtime rendering helped this out a LITTLE bit, but the problem remains: A LARGE chunk of my workflow involves recording sounds from bits of hardware and mangling them afterwards.
