I'm pretty clueless about how midi works. I once did a quick test and
(if my memory serves me well) I (think) used this to control the volume
and pan (via ecasound and a wheel on my midi keyboard). If this is true,
then I believe you can control other ecasound effects via midi. Someone
please correct me if I'm completly off the mark. I hate showing my
ignorance, but I also hate seeing useful features not being used...
From the ecasound man page...
MIDI continuous controller (control change messages). Messages on the
MIDI-channel 'channel' that are coming from controller number
'controller' are used as the controller source. As recommended by the
MIDI-specification, channel numbering goes from 1 to 16. Possible
controller numbers are values from 0 to 127. The MIDI-device where bytes
are read from can be specified using -Md option. Otherwise the default
MIDI-device is used as specified in ~ecasound/ecasoundrc (see
ecasoundrc(5)). Defaults to /dev/midi.
