Midi controller VST effects are written as \xx
« on: December 30, 2008, 15:22:07 »
Hi,

After posting on the forum here:
http://forum.openmpt.org/index.php?topic=2771.0

Relabsoluness told me that it's possible to have VST effect parameters controlled by a midi controller since version 1.17.02.50, which is awesome. After verifying his idea that "Options->Record params" from VST window menu will recording changes made (with the mouse) to VST parameters, I am now filing a feature request that these two features be connected.

Basically I think it would be nice to be able to use a midi controller to control VST instrument parameters, and to have those instrument parameter changes recorded as \xx or Zxx in the pattern as you do so.

(S=A) means that it has been accepted (and it's fully working already, btw - great job, Relabs!), so no need for more +1 :)

It's worth noting, though, that it simply records controller values to pattern as \xx commands, so one has to manually set the right macro on the channel. Ability to use the MIDI mapping to input parameter changes to pattern without the need to manually set macros remains 'todo'.

Way cool that this works.

Even cooler!

Thx for your hard work.

Well it's still the case that I can a) use my midi controller to change the VST parameters, and b) use the mouse to change the VST parameters and have them recorded as \xx. What I still can't do is combine those two so that the midi controller changes the VST parameters AND records those parameter changes as \xx.

Can you tell me in which version of OpenMPT you tested this?

Hi!

Sorry for the slow reply.  I gotta check this more often. :)

I have requested the same thing earlier, that these two (great) midi options would be connected.

So.... 10 +

:D

This is possible using MIDI mapping and enabling "Record MIDI controller changes as MIDI macro changes (in pattern)" setting from setup->MIDI. In recent test build 1.17.03.02 there's an easier way to change and record parameters.

Hi,

Just to confirm, I tested it and this works very nicely. Thank you!
