The Appkats.com TLI series is nothing more than a traditional Environment setups (incl. transformers, cables etc) packed into a Macro.What are these pre-built Environment modules (like the Appkats.com TLI series) that do the same thing, but reside between Physical input and Sequencer input in the Environment?
Right. If you create some Environment setup (it can be open scheme as well not a Macro) which can "learn" parameters like mine "Parameter Hunter" then you have endless possibility to patch lots of Environment midi processing "in between" like randomization, various scales, parameter to parameter transforming, etc. Another goal is that you can use the CC# to control the Channel strip & plugin parameters and use the same CC# musically - it's well known that CA ignores the CC#s which are "learned" so you can not use these CC#s in Logic.So, while the CA is very useful and quite flexible in its own right, if one wants/needs to simultaneously perform MIDI transformations on the data before the Sequencer input, it sounds like you pretty much have to wire up a macro to do it. That's very insightful.
For me, the real utility of the PH is that it mimics the CA 'Learn' function but without removing the learned CC from the data stream (eg Logic's 'floating port issue'), allowing, as you mention, Tangra, any/all transformations to occur before the data hits the channel strip. And the added bonus is the transportability of the learned assignments between projects!<snip>What are these pre-built Environment modules (like the Appkats.com TLI series) that do the same thing, but reside between Physical input and Sequencer input in the Environment?
Though the PH is not officially offered in the Audiogrocery web site it is on sale, so if anybody have an interest of it can contact me in the site - contacts. The tool price is 23Euro.
