Yes, I had tried the standard controller numbers before posting here.
I've now looked at the source (midi.c) and that confirms that volume
should be on controller 7 but its not working for me. My knowledge of
C isn't good enough to suss out why its not working though. I'm trying
to do this via JACK MIDI w/ Ardour 3 svn.

Does composite support MIDI cc? Thats not a must-have really but would
certainly be nice. I'll have to try composite anyway but have you got
plans to add a GUI as I think most people would see that as a
must-have - those coming from the Mac/Windows music production world
would at least.
