[chuck-users] code reusability

Hi Thomas!

What I use for this kind of case (my Akai LPD8, for example) is a class with
it's own sporked listener shred.

At instantiation it could try to open all MIDI devices in turn, until the
name of the device is whatever the name of your controller is. from there on
you can add members and member functions that reflect whatever you want to
do with the device, including a public event that other shreds could wait
for. In the case of controllers with leds you'd probably also have
member-functions that your code could use to set these, with your class
handling the MIDI.

If you build something like that once it will save you a lot of time in the
long run and only having to do MIDI (with all of its magic numbers) once
should make your coding a lot more pleasant. The class could sit in its own
file (if you make it public), or you could simply copy and paste it to the
bottom of your current project.

Hope that helps?
