Hello Derek,

This is something that has been on my TODO list for tapiir for a long
while... I think MIDI control would be nice, but it's 7-bit data
range is a bit of a problem. Of course it is possible to work around
that with multiple controls per value, but for from ideal. What other
possibilities does PD offer? Maybe writing to a named pipe (fifo)? I could
easily implement the input part in tapiir. Or maybe it would make more
sense to write an PD object that incapsulates tapiir? I do not know
however, if it is possible to use a non-PD graphical UI with a PD object.
