Pi as MIDI message converter for a live rig?

Post by nycumMusic69420 »

Hi! I have a MIDI footswitch capable of sending program change, cc, and note messages. I'd really like to use it to control a parameter on my drum machine, but the parameter responds to system exclusive messages, which my footswitch can't send. Anyone know if I could use something like QMidiRoute on a Pi to map the messages coming from my footswitch to sysex messages, and forward the sysex messages to my drum machine? Thanks!!
