Xn Controllerbank — Web MIDI controller

I’m running on a scant amount of physical gear and was looking to fiddle with CC commands on Norns (plus I was looking for an excuse to use LitElements).

So I whipped up this virtual MIDI controllerbank using Web MIDI (currently has limited browser support) to control any MIDI device that can be connected to a computer (USB mostly, but limited Bluetooth MIDI support). It’s admittedly designed for an audience of 1, but I thought others might find it useful.

Caveat usor.


Sixteen or more or less controllers, Web MIDI over USB and maybe Bluetooth
