funny to call CV a "protocol" - it's been around since the 60s, and just
describes the fact that a given processing unit reacts to an incoming
voltage rather than a knob.

at first, i wasn't quite sure if you're joking... but yes, it's very
convenient, just totally not new :)

much like a "one midi command per wire, running status on" architecture.

compared to ardour's automation tracks (which are somewhat difficult to
use), what does non-mixer do that's better?
comparing midi and cv is apples and oranges imho.
