I have used Midi controllers in the past to control software, it would be awesome if somehow you could assign midi note buttons to each sound effect, to make them easier to trigger in a gaming session.
If your midi controller allows you to set up ULR’s like the Stream Deck does then you already can. Just click “Show Remote control Links” and then copy the link to your midi controller
Can you provide a little more information please? It’s an old midi controller, I have never heard Stream Deck. Thanks.
