It is funnny how things go in circles, if you had said that a MIDI router would be an interesting new product in 2019 we probably wouldn't have believed you. However with more and more devices without MIDI thru ports and with different types of MIDI on 3.5MM jacks something like the Conductive Labs MRCC is starting to look very promising.
The workflow of a device like this needs to be simple and effective. The MRCC looks like it covers all those bases. In this video you can see how easy it is to make new MIDI routing options. You can support this project on their kickstarter now.
