[chuck-users] ChucK code to connect MIDI controller to some UGen STK

Hello Daniel,

For yet another example,


This is the "patch"

CircleRamp circleRamp => Saturate saturate => TubeWarmth tubeWarmth => dac;

Then small functor classes are defined to respond to MIDI CC

class CircleRampDelay extends IntProcedure { ... }

and MIDI key on/off

class KeyOn extends IntIntProcedure { ... }

Those classes are "wired" to a class that handles the MIDI mappings
for an QX25 MIDI controller

KeyOn keyOn;
CircleRampDelay circleRampDelay;

AlesisQX25 qx25;
keyOn @=> qx25.keyOn;
circleRampDelay @=> qx25.rotary1;
