I am developing a higher level python interface to ecasound. I have collided with the inability to set controllers to an effect after the -kx switch, once more.
Consider the following test-code:
ei=eca('ei', 56) # pitch shifter
kl=ei('kl2',0,23, range_high=32) # 2-stage linear envelope
kl('kl2', 0, range_low=32)
ei('kl2',1,3, range_high=2) # <-- this can't be done!
I think that imposing on a possible programmer that you can't add controllers to an effect after adding a controller-chain to it is restraining, not to mention hard to implement sanely. Ofcourse I could forbid controllers on controllers altogether, but I think this would nullify the advances of having this kind of programming environment somewhat.
So, what if we could have a new special switch, say, -ky? This would end the controller on controller chain and return focus to previous controller or effect. What do you think?
