Hi Amazed, Thanks for your response.
My question is:
Can I access Reaper directly via code (send note on/off messages) and not need something between. Does Reaper itself have some sort of API COM object I can instantiate via code to send it MIDI messages - mapping capability that already comes with it?
Using a virtual MIDI cable would do exactly what MIDI OX/Yoke is doing for me now. It works so swapping one for the other wouldn't resolve my question.
I tried LoopBe1 (free virtual MIDI cable) but Reaper didn't seem to see it.
The intention behind my question is to simplify things: Code --> Reaper instead of code --> [intermediate MIDI mapper] --> Reaper. Have one less thing to install and setup.
