Ability to see your filter setting
« on: May 19, 2009, 11:12:31 »
The name of the topic is a bit wrong but didn't find a better way to explain it.
I want to see when I'm the instrument tab and working with filter settings and see which macro setting I have to use to get the equlient setting in the pattern.

I fear this can't be done. The filter envelope always works the same way, but you can configure your midi macros as you want, you can map every single value to a different function, and it doesn't even have to be a filter.

How about giving it a value between 1 - 128/0 -127

It could be done for the default macro, Z00-Z7F for cutoff and Z80 to Z8F (or is it Z80 to ZFF? I have the memory of a goldfish) for resonance. If the default macro isn't used, it just wastes a little space. Theoretically, I suppose it's even possible to check what the default macro (macro 0 (SF0) to keep things simple)) is and display accordingly?

That's the problem, AFAIK modplug's default configuration for res filters is Z80 to ZFF, however in IT it's Z80 to Z8F. If I just did this for the default setup, this would confuse people a lot.

Or you could fit both. Z80-Z8F and Z80-ZFF beneath the top slider and Z00-Z7F and frequency beneath the lower slider.

Most of the time when people get confused they are just about to learn something new, so confusing them a lot certainly has potential. Perhaps hovering over respective number could show a help balloon like on the buttons? "Shows filter setting for controlling resonance with Z80-Z8F" kind of.
