    Hello,
    I’m trying to reproduce my setup in Sp2, 2nd day of work.
    I’ll certainly have further questions to ask, if you’re ok I will keep them on specific and different topics to help future navigation.

    Let’s start with this question: how do I assign a midi controller to a chain’s input and/or output ?
    Also, planning to use snapshots and/or what you call cues, it is important that these simple volume controls are not saved, leaving the level of the signal flow independent from Vst’s parameteres and algorithms.

    thank you

    Hi
    First for the controllers:
    You need to define a controller then map it to the gain knobs.
    Please see this video:

    For the snapshots:
    Create global snapshots.
    Click on the F
    Click on Audio Gain , it becomes red, and won’t get recalled.
    Drag snapshot to cue list if you want to be able to step through them.

    great Nikolai,
    excellent job.

    Another question, may I have multiple controllers tweaking the same parameter ?
    I’m using a footcontroller and an Ipad programmed so that I can tweak volumes and other things from both.
    They are using the same midi commands of course.

    yes, it’s possible.

    When I tweak the controllers’ limits I realize how useful it would be to be able to set the range by typing numbers ( values or %) instead of approximating it by trials and errors while moving the cursor.

    Yes you can have multiple controllers controlling the same thing.
    They don’t need to have the same midi message.
    If you define two Knobs, one for each controller, you can map them to the same parameter. Or multiple parameters

    Good point. Glad to see someone pushing the controllers section a bit.

    I think the most effective way to manage this is to allow to decide which is the max and min value range to allow the fader have a full sweep through the range.

    Another point: have you tested Midi-Ox ?
    I use it to a merge all my midi devices into a single midi Yoke out and cannot see it available in Lp2 as a midi device.

    Hi
    Yes I use midiOX for testing but I did not know it should show up as a midi device, I use MidiLoop for that http://www.tobias-erichsen.de/software/loopmidi.html

    I’ve always felt very well working with MidiOx.
    Midi Yoke is the virtual midi cable which can be installed.

    Given how your midi setting up is organized, if I use a midi merger into which to concentrate all midi devices I can make midi mapping much easier and, especially, once you’ve set a single midi device you’re done.
    Application of this is valuable as I often need to change midi devices containing the same midi commands.

    so, after some further investigation I can say that Midi Yoke works on 64 bit systems just when running 32 bit applications, not 64 bit ones.
    The pity with Midiloop is that it doesn’t insall permanently but you have to run it each time you switch your computer on.

    Aha, yes the loopmidi pops up everytime i boot the computer, kind of annoying.
    Probably possible to get around this by doing some Windows Services tricks, but I don’t know how.
