Just wanted to add that sending multiple note streams through a single [noteout] requires careful programming to ensure the integrity of notes, ie. correct assignments of pitch and velocity. This can be handled much easier with multiple [noteout] objects.
is it also ok to have 8 midiouts?
Im thinking a step sequencer for my Mackie C4 and thinking to have one midiout for each column, sending note pitch/velocity some CC and notelength for a half bar sequence
row 1 – pitch
row 2 – velocity
row 3 – CC or release velocity
row 4 – notelength
