Thank you for your reply. It makes sense too, I just wasn't sure if this was something that might be possible. I have two projects in mind, and while I have some free time just trying to decide which one to tackle first. One will be a simple metronome/clock device that will give me an in-ear beat and send midi clock to my loopers. I do very ambient non-rhythmic parts usually first, but want to make sure they are aligned to the grid so as I bring rhythmic elements in they will align nicely. So, what I am thinking is I will create a default beat that can be controlled by a midi controller like the nanoKontrol2. The faders can adjust the volume of the elements that make up the whole sound, as well as effects levels, so I would have one channel feed my headphone/in ear monitors, and the other could actually go to the live/recording system so it will be easy to bring the rhythmic elements in. I want to explore probability as a way to take the basic beat and add more variety and interest, so some of the knobs of the nanoKontrol could serve as other variables, sub-divisions, etc.. I'm choosing the Axoloti because it already has midi and audio i/o and is so compact, as this will be living on my pedalboard. So, one more question, unrelated to the OT, can can the Axoloti power a midi controller such as the nanoKontrol2?
