    Hey all,

    Anyone knows of a way to create a midi controller using the playbook?

    Not directly. You can use an app called "OSCream" to send OSC messages to a laptop, that can then relay them to a MIDI port.

    For direct MIDI we'd need a mechanism to access a MIDI interface connected to USB. There is no such mechanism at present.

    thanks, ill look into that, but you think a midi interface would be available in the future, or if usb host gets enabled?

    It would require drivers, at least generic ones for class compliant hardware. Also, to be competitive we'd need some virtual port mapping & routing services so controllers, generators & effects could cooperate, share physical ports and use each others services.

    Your guess is as good as mine. Perhaps the recent activity around Pacemaker will cause some TLC from RIM for the music production industry.

    That's what I was thinking too. Lets see what pacemaker will come up with, then we might be able to accomplish something
