Synth1/VST to ModPlug Parameter Converter

Synth1/VST to ModPlug Parameter Converter
by Speed / Audiologic Experiment

Simple tool that I made some time ago.
It saved me a lot of time and allowed to create all advanced magic by controlling dynamically many VST parameters at the same time in quick and more comfortable way.
For example, if I needed to control gain or filter or any other parameter of any VST, by changing it precisely up and down during playback, I do not had to calculate 128 or other non 10/100/1000 range parameters with 1000 percent MPT range for exact values anymore.
It was made for my personal use (maybe there are other, better tools, I do not know), but maybe someone will find it helpful for his or her own music projects, depending on how often VST plugins with non 10/100/1000 range parameters are controlled dynamically.

It is pure JS code, so you can see no virus there, no dead link in the future, and you can run it on anything that has basic browser (IE, Chrome, FireFox, ...), even very old versions should be compatible.
Just copy code, paste in notepad, save as converter.htm and open with your browser by drag and drop.

Code:
Code: [Select]

Example:
Increasing values for Gain in Synth1 VST (PCs for smooth, FX ID is 1, parameter ID is 29, range is 128, no empty notes needed).

Values (input):
Code: [Select]
96
100
104
108
112
116
120
124
127

ModPlug Parameters (output to paste in ModPlug pattern):
Code: [Select]
ModPlug Tracker MPT
|PCs01001750
|PCs01001782
|PCs01001814
|PCs01001846
|PCs01001878
|PCs01001910
|PCs01001942
|PCs01001974
|PCs01001998

To calculate single value by hand, formula is ((value/max)*1000) rounded up.
For Synth1 with 128 range parameter, simple value 64 would be ((64/128)*1000), which gives 500.
