I just got aalto a few weeks ago and have done just that! it woks really well actually. especially if you use "absolutemousemode". the knobs are actually quite responsive. next, i'm hoping to find a cool m4l patch that will allow me to send midi notes to alto from the grid. Anyone have suggestions? how i would love a m4l version of earthsea.
to further emphasize, aalto is absolutely stunning. it sounds amazing and is incredibly fun to use. bought it as soon as i discovered all synth sounds from this came from it.
