Hey Sam. I wasn’t trying to say it so abruptly, maybe I failed to nuance my words or the nuance got lost in translation.
Of course it’s great for routing OSC and MIDI and I said it in my previous post. For me, Sonic-Pi might be the most powerful I/O tool that I ever used to make music. I was simply talking about hardware synth architecture and design.
If I were trying to build a standalone brick type synthesizer, I would buy a Bela, a few knobs and I would code something with a MIDI / OSC input so I can trigger it with Sonic-Pi but I would not include Sonic-Pi directly in the hardware architecture. I was just expressing an opinion about what would be my way to do it.
EDIT : I think that we need to define more clearly what we are talking about. Are we talking about using Sonic-Pi as a control tool or as a sound engine type of thing?
