Recently, I have been delving more deeply into "enabling MIDI output" on Geist. Some cases successful, others atrocious (depending on application and host actually).
Ultimately, what I would like to do is be able to use the pads by engine/channel to send MIDI events "wherever." As a composition tool this would be the ultimate for me (guitar player who easily gets lost in MIDI).
I happened upon this comment referring to VST3 and MIDI output from a specific VST which leads me to believe that only one channel is accepted as output by a VST2 (which I honestly have NO CLUE about). http://forum.cakewalk.com/FindPost/3227403
I am not sure if "VST3" is the answer, but in SONAR I can route Geist's MIDI output directly to another VST. This has caused strange issues/crashes. In Studio One v3 (demo), a third instrument track is required to achieve this. S1 did pick up an "illegal action" from Geist, but didn't crash on me, although I am stepping back at this point to try to understand this better.
Is the ability to use all of Geist's MIDI to drive other things achievable currently? Perhaps the "Enable MIDI Output" on a VST just caught my eye, and I am barking up the wrong tree here, but this ability would make Geist exceptional for certain applications.
The reason this has gotten so much attention from me is that the sequencer/song tab in Geist are highly efficient for sandboxing ideas (and incredibly easy to edit!).
