    I'm thinking of an improvement here that might help the OP - could this dialog also include the option to match the effect duration to the mark duaration? You can import a mark with a duration (show the Mark Bar to see them), but there is no option to match the effect to the duration of the mark. You can only choose to span between each mark and the next mark. Generating the list of times from some kind of midi capture software should be fairly easy.
    It should not be to hard to have it match the mark duration. Durations for marks were added after the add effects to marks so that was probably not considered. Create a feature request and we can add an option for it to match durations when the effects are added.

    Wow, thank you everyone for the replies!

    To answer the question about an example mapping, I was looking at the following

    C3 could correspond to Spin on Arch 2, use on and off marks to add the effect to the right group
    D3 could correspond to Strobe on Arch 2, use on and off marks to add the effect

    ... But that does sound mighty complicated, especially for all of the available effects.

    I really like the idea of using Audacity marks and leveraging multiple effects box. I was unaware of the draw tool in general, that might be a great time saver too!

    Seems like the original MIDI idea is doable.... but not super practical... for this season at least LOL

    Thanks again!!

    There is framework in Vixen to take input sources and map them to effects. No implementations were ever built, but the building blocks are there. There has been sporadic interest over the years, but it just has not made it to fruition yet.
