What you suggested is a good idea, i will try that for now. Too bad about the velocity, that was my initial plan.
The only solution I had found was to use the midisolution ‘‘event processor’’ that would convert the SPD note values to CC, and actually enable me to program cross fades and other stuff which could be nice with the visuals.
I play drums and keyboard at the same time and so thats why i need the pads to control the visuals because I dont have enough hands to turn the knobs. And so i could either make the pads jump to X value of a parameter, ex: pad #1 making it fade to blue, #2 to red, etc, or having the velocity decide the value.
My end goal is to have more personalized visuals and having it interact more with the music, because right now it is only reacting to the volume of one of the synths.
