Hey! As we all know, using the Instrument 1 on Windows is a little frustrating, since the software cannot be open at the same time as your DAW or other software, which makes tweaking and adjusting the instrument while working really cumbersome. I understand that this is probably based around some frustrating limitations in the windows OS, but I have an idea for a way to work around that limitation that the app developers might want to consider!
When the windows app is open, it requires exclusive access to the Artiphon Instrument 1, which prevents a DAW from getting MIDI data from the instrument. I’ll take this as a given. However, it does not prevent the DAW from getting MIDI data from the app itself.
Basically, if, while the Artiphon Instrument 1 editor is open, it could initialize a software MIDI device. While you play the Instrument 1 while the app is open, it can simply relay all MIDI data from the instrument out to this software device, which you can then access from your DAW or other music software.
This would allow us windows users to keep the software open and make tweaks on the fly, including saving presets and all that good stuff, because the DAW is completely isolated from the instrument!
