Hi there! I'm having a blast controlling Tidal via MIDI, using the usual
"^33" syntax and a Novation controller.
This works for both knobs sending [0-127], but also with 'on-off' buttons which send either 0 or 127.
However, using those ones for state variations to toggle patterns, I had to resort to
do d1 $ somecyclesBy "^44" (fast 2) $ "bd*4" # gain (range 0.2 0.8 "^78") d2 $ "~ cp" # gain (0.9 * "^79") d3 $ "~ cp" # gain (0.9 * "^79")
At scale I have the impression this can quickly result in late messages, and I wonder if that could be because
somecyclesBy evaluates some probabilities, not just boolean values, so there might be more computing under the hood than I need here!
At first I was using
sometimesBy but it looked like using the latter one improved a bit my situation, which is why I suspect there's something fishy in my approach.
Anyone has a suggestion how to refactor the above, so that
fast 2 depending on Midi CC
^44 being 0 or 127, without resorting to
