i don't think I have said "the H8000" is not made to process MIDI". That's a very generic statement that has been extrapolated from its context, very likely. There are some MIDI areas where the H8000 is better than in others, sure.
Unfortunately I am not the one who creates modules so I don't have an answer for you about if/when. But as slow as things may be, you've been heard.
Currently MIDI notes do not control pitch as you expect to; they are pitched in reference to Middle C…I know…..something very different from what musical use requires.It's in my requests list too!
all the best
