On screen capture to remember what you did and the resulting Midi if you feed it into a Midi track to record and if the Midi drives a synth you can record the audio into an audio track… To playback the Midi track, you don‘t need Nest anymore btw…”

I haven’t yet explored the MIDI option. I figured for the time being that it was for sending notes to a drum kit like MODO Drums or such.

But the idea is to record the ‘playing’ of Nest as one can easily record the playing on a keyboard. With a keyboard the hands move and the notes they hit are recorded. On Nest the hands would move to move a mouse to make connections.

Tangerine Dream, for one, used to do that in concert. One musician would take a wire from a synth and plug it elsewhere and that would change the music being produced in some aspect.

Well, SB already has the object to encapsulate everything that matters. That object is used for Undo/Redo.
