Hello,

Over many years, the subject has come up of controllers for soft synths. Back in the day there have been some one-off curiosities for the MS20 or impOscar, but they were only built in small volumes. They looked great, but of course only controlled the one synth. Also they run into the problem of the hardware not keeping up with the software - you change a patch, but the hardware doesn't change with it.

Roland's PlugOut is good idea, but of course that has synth electronics in it, and so is far more than a controller. Also they can only control the small number of synths that Roland release that are compatible. Otherwise, today its just case of using automation. NI's NKS standard is pretty slick, but you can only control 8 things. For performance tweaks, handy. For programming, a non starter.

It's easy enough to see the problem of course - every soft synth is different. How can one universal design usefully represent such a wide variety of synths?

Please help.

I didn't find the right solution from the internet.
