What I think would be awesome would be something like the following:
- MIDI DIN connected to serial port on back via a simple expander module
- A unit that exposes the MIDI channel data in the ER301 so you could use anywhere. The unit would have ability to select channel, CC# or other events.
Combined this would enable you to add a MIDI unit to say the 1v/oct on an oscillator unit, select channel x, and pitch.
Reason I would love this is am planning on trying to use the Linnstrument as a polyphonic controller for the ER301. With current IO on the ER301, think I can get to 4 channels (it uses 5 fields per channel, so 20 inputs required), but the Linnstrument actually uses as many as 15 (1 control, 7 each side), which is way more IO than we have.
Brian - on the DIY side, I am very comfortable with a soldering iron, but that’s as far as I’ve gone so far.
