I created a Synth & I want it to play specific microtonal pitches. I have note on/off responders such that when I have my keyboard hooked up & everything has been evaluated, it plays all my desired notes and everything works fine.
Problem is the piece I am writing is too difficult for me to play (I am a composer, not a pianist) & I want to make an automated mock-up recording.
Is there a way I can feed SuperCollider a MIDI file with the correct keyboard notes & durations, & have it play everything using my SynthDef? Would I still be able to use my array of Note on/off responders & have it work?
I understand how to make MIDI work using an external device, but again I am trying to do this all in SC. Or another option would be to have Ableton Live or Sibelius play my file, routing the real-time MIDI data to the synthdef as decribed above.
Any advice how I can best do this? I know it has to be possible, I am just finding the MIDI help docs to be pretty scant.
