Um, this isn't my post. I had posted to ask if anyone had tried to pump a MIDI sequence out of Live via Midipipe into Modul8. That's my plan, unless it simply won't work. So, Garagecube Team: something might be wrong with the forum... as I said, what Akira replied to was not my original post, nor even written by me. It appears to be a response to my original post, by an admin I'm guessing. Is there any way to retrieve the original post? I was looking to see what different methods people were using to MIDI sequence to Modul8.

I agree completely. What I'm thinking about is using Live (on the same machine as Modul8) to simply pump out the occasional MIDI note to control the video. I'd use my other machine to do my audio as normal (Live/Reason). In theory, running Live with no VSTs or anything CPU-intensive, simply sending the MIDI notes, should not have much impact on the machines overall performance. Again, this is simply a hypothesis based on my experience with Live. I want to avoid hardware sequencers as I already own too much equipment, so implementing a soft-sequencer is the only idea I wish to entertain (assuming I can make it work right). If anyone has successfully used software sequencing to control Modul8, I've love to hear what app(s) were used, and, more specifically, what methods did not work. I'm scheduling time in late January to begin this project, so I'll post my results as they happen.
