I am creating a standalone audio application (similar to the Dashboard for Blocks). It should communicate with DAWs and other software over virtual Midi or similar. There are great tutorials for sending Midi in/out of plug-ins but unfortunately not for stand alone applications.
My approach so far has been to place MidiMessages in a MidiBuffer and send them out periodically by use of the Timer class. I guess I need something like the processBlock callback method in the AudioProcessor class so I can send Midi messages on the audio thread.
Using a Timer class callback is in any case not the best approach (not even thread safe if I understand the implementation correctly). So I come to thee, oh JUCE programmer superiori, for guidance and help.
