External Devices: Allow Instruments to Also Be Controllers and Vice Versa

asked Jul 23, 2017 in Studio One Feature Requests by Funkybot (21,570 points)
Please allow External [MIDI] Devices to function as both Control Surfaces and Instruments at the same time. For instance, I have a Roland System 8 hardware synthesizer that I use as a Control Surface for VST plugins, but there are also times where I'm going to use it as an external instrument. Currently, I'm creating two devices for this in S1, 1) Control Surface device, and another 2) for the Instrument output. The differentiation feels unnecessary, as they're both just devices that can send and receive MIDI data. I should just be able to have one External Device that covers both aspects of this functionality.
