Midi controller "technical preview"?
Wirecast 8.2 was released on December 6, 2017. This release was the first to include support for Midi controllers. The midi functionality was listed as a technology preview. Within wirecast preferences, there is a big disclaimer in red that reads:
Midi Control Surface functionality is a technical preview, and not a finalised implementation. Watch this space for additional functionality in coming releases. Suggestions or feedback? Visit our forums and let us know.
Clients took up the offer to provide feedback. As soon as this was launched, the number one request was relates to the ability to map wirecast functions to keys in a configurable manner for example. However, this and others have still not been delivered.
And if we fast forward a bit, lets see what "additional functionality" was delivered in response to this feedback.
- 14-Feb-2018 - Wirecast 8.3 - No new midi features.
- 02-May-2018 - Wirecast 9.0 - New device (XKEYS) supported - but no new midi features
- 09-May-2018 - Wirecast 9.0.1 - No new midi features
- 31-Jul-2018 - Wirecast 10.0 - No new midi features
If this is a technology preview still as indicated by the big red letters in 10.0, what is the timeline to have a final release version of this functionality available?
