It's a very nice new implementation the patcher mixer control! I'd suggest to make it possible for us to control it via midi, to be tweeked externally by a nanoKontrol or wiimote, e.g. What do you guys think about this?
I don't think it makes sense to integrate midi control in a patcher basic functionality. You can have midi control over any patch volume by adding 2 or 3 objects yourself. If you integrate this in the application you'd also have to arrange for CC mapping somewhere and don't try to interfere with patches using midi for other things. I really don't see the point.
