Well this is a bit off topic. Nothing to do with JUCE but I know this community has a lot of talented audio developpers, so I thought I'd ask. Jules : please delete my message if it's not appropriate to post off topic content like this. Here goes :
We are currently outsourcing the development of a virtual midi and audio driver.
Basically, it's like Virtual Audio Cable and loopbe1, put together.
I must confess that I'm not experienced at all in the drivers world.
The freelancer suggested using portctl to develop the MIDI part of the driver. While this sounds like a good idea, it seems to rely a lot on direct X.
The final product will be used in conjunction with DAW which will work probably in ASIO mode.
My question is very simple : is this gonna work (The ASIO with portctl part) ? Is it the best way to develop a midi driver ? Any advice will be welcome.
