    Ability to program MIDI soft keys would be very helpful.

    I think you wanted to link this video:

    But this isn’t what I meant.
    Currently we have a limited number of Soft Keys available on the surface.
    My suggestion is the ability to expand the MIDI protocol, so external MIDI controllers with buttons/pads could be used as Soft Keys. It is currently partially possible, because MIDI allows to recall scenes, mute channels, etc. – but it’s not possible, for example, to assign MIX function (DCA spill, AUX send on faders) to a MIDI command.

    So again:

    MIDI Soft Keys allowing external MIDI controllers to be used as additional Soft Keys would be a great addition. 🙂

    This, and select MIX through Midi (as in the iLive) It is fundamental, basic, very important. Please do it now.

    I’ve asked them to update the MIDI protocol so every function is available, or, if that’s too hard, at least release the communication protocol that’s used for Director/MixPad/CustomControl so we can implement our own external controls.

    My truncated list of improvements includes these:
    Midi Sel
    Midi Mix
    Midi softkey

    The problem is…which UI (director, surface, etc) do I send the command to?
    [Don’t want random midi softkey presses affecting all surface/UI/Director instances on the network… (needs to be specific)]
