Help and Questions / Re: Helm VST (64 bit) sound is...

Dear Saga Musix, you nailed it! I was going crazy :D Of course that was accidental and your solution fixes the issue.

BTW, is there a way to see all stored MIDI CCs within a plugin?

I think I see what happened now. Most likely at some point you right-clicked the volume slider and (accidentally?) selected "Learn MIDI Assignment". This makes the plugin wait for a MIDI CC message to be sent, and will then map any future occurences of this MIDI CC to that function of the synthesizer. OpenMPT sends some MIDI CCs every time playback is stopped, so if the plugin is in MIDI learn mode while stopping playback, it will remember to bind one of those CCs that OpenMPT sends to that function. Helm will also remember those MIDI learn assignments across plugin instances, so if you do it once the problem will keep happening everytime you stop playback. You can fix it by right-clicking the volume slider and choose "Clear MIDI Assignment".

Yes, I got it from the official source. The download page seems to be broken so I found this link from the HTML source.

I thought DefleMask is free? There's also Furnace which should be compatible with DefleMask files.

The software used to make it was DefleMask. I was unaware of the same extension being used for different file types. What free software could run a .dmf DefleMask file?

The plugin isn't doing that here. Did you install it from https://tytel.org/helm/downloads/ or some other source?

Ah, didn't see the volume slider. That is a very good point, thanks. Just noticed that the VST's volume goes straight to 0 when I stop playing the module (F5 key). Why is this happening?

So in that particular file, the master volume on the plugin (in the top-center of the plugin GUI) is set to 0. I don't see how anything in the module itself could trigger that, also if I change the volume, save and re-open the file, it stays at the correct volume. Does this keep happening for you if you do the same, or if you add another instance of the plugin?

Hi Saga Musix, great to hear from you. You can find an example in the attached module.

File extensions are not uniquely assigned to single file formats. Are you sure the DMF file in question is an X-Tracker module and not e.g. a Deflemask module? OpenMPT only supports the former and no, there are no plugins that could add functionality for other formats.
