Hey folks,

Just a quick update. The newest version of Musix (1.0.3) has OSC and Midi out. In addition, it contains support for inter-note expressivity. This means you can map midi features (such as cc, pitch bend, velocity, aftertouch) to horizontal or vertical movement within a note. As well with OSC, the location of the touch within the note is sent allowing you to do anything your mind imagines.
