Yes I saw your posts on CSound re Rise, your YouTube video is fantastic!
(For other forum members Iain's video below):
It's so fantastic that there is more traction for Seaboard integration with Csound! MPE (regardless of manufacturer) is really exciting for controlling synthesis, and especially Csound.
I have had a bit of trouble with the Blocks Seaboard, mainly Slide (in Y direction) gets reset to note-on value during note-off. So if you start in middle of keywave (0.5) then move up and release it does not stay at value 1 - rather it goes back to original value (0.5).
I'm too new to the Seaboard world (only had it for a week) so I don't know if this is something that can be changed in software. I played with the settings for Slide: Multi; Highest; Lowest; etc. nothing worked but last. (and that was checking Midi Monitor output).
I just made a test patch that fixed the problem for me. I also felt that note-on velocity isn't the best for playing / performing, possibly for some sounds, but not for sustained sounds. I think that it would be good to work out a mixture of both Note-On & Aftertouch to generate more accurate note triggers. I have a feeling this is what Equator is doing, as its really easy to play.
As a test I put this together (just a saw wave and sine wave mix controlled by Slide) Forgive any un-Csound-ish code:
