Cool stuff, Patrick! Although I don't have an X32, I'd be happy to help out making an OS X version.

Btw, have you also considered using something like OSCII-bot for this job? It could take platform compatibility issues out of the equation, and would probably also allow users to customize things and experiment more easily.

There's probably other issues as well.
... and even if there wouldn't be any such issues, it still makes sense to place some additional 'intelligence' in middleware between the device and REAPER. You have more freedom 'in the middle' to design things to your own preferences, using whatever approach (e.g. programming language, level of abstraction, etc.) you feel most comfortable with, than you'd have inside of REAPER or the x32.

For one thing, you could automate (and modulate!) all of its parameters from REAPER - I don't know that app, but I'd guess it doesn't have (similarly powerful) sequencing abilities.
