I have an idea and need to know if is possible that Bela could run as a multitracking USB audio interface to use in a DAW.
I need 16 (or more) analog inputs that could be indepently selectionable on a DAW.
There is a Linux driver that in principle should do exactly that, however it is not currently working. Here is the documentation of the past efforts, in case you want to use that as a starting point and try to get it fixed: https://github.com/BelaPlatform/bela-image-builder/issues/35
There is a way to convert the board's analog inputs into MIDI messages and send them to the DAW running on the host. This may suit your use case if you are just looking at reading control signals and don't actually need audio-rate sensor reading. One such example is here: https://github.com/BelaPlatform/Bela/tree/master/examples/08-PureData/midi-cv-midi
Great, many thanks!
