Joefemodo, Thank you for your quick reply and suggestion for the CUIAs.
What I’m trying to accomplish, only for now, and it’s probably apparent in my question is to get a minimal (controllable!) Zynthian up and running asap.
I understand how the CUIAs can take care of switch requirements (thanks for suggesting that). Could TouchOSC or Lemur, on my iPad or iPhone) or a MIDI device through the RK-005 MIDI interface fill in for the encoders?
My question really comes down to, I think, weighing a minimalist Frankenstein approach against just building the (amazing) system V2 or V3 you’ve already created and which puts all things in place where they’re known to work!
… I get it that Frankenstein can create it’s own problems hence your recommendations for the encoders and switches …
Thanks again in advance.
