Why such limited MIDI control for Obsidian?
I'm a keyboard player. Obsidian is one of the few ios synths I would use in a live performance: It's never ever crashed on me, it's insanely versatile and sounds incredible, and it's an absolute joy to program.
Yet, when controlling it from a midi keyboard it's surprisingly limited.
As it stands, it's more or less on an island floating in the paradise of NS2.
Aside from the glaring lack of program change, which is a dealbreaker in its own right, the limit of 10 mappable parameters is sort of astonishing. Slate has over 20, which is certainly a bit better (though I'd love to be able to control filters, tuning for individual samples, etc from my launchcontrol, that would be good fun!)
Anyhow... Is there a reason for the paltry sum of assignable knobs in Obsidian? My midi keyboard alone has 113 midi knobs, sliders, and pads that are begging to control as many elements as possible. I realize that there are 8 knobs and an X/Y pad, thus the 10 assignment slots, but I can't help but wonder why midi can't be mapped to cc for using external controllers.
