Assigning global snapshots to сontroller buttons

Postby AEK » Fri Feb 23, 2018 5:10 am

Hi Nikolai,
I want to return to my long-standing request.
At our concerts we increased the number of instruments used. As a consequence, the number of processing chains also increased. In LP 2.1.5, the only way to manage instrument presets and the chains of their processing plugins is to use a very tedious two-step procedure: first you need to create a list of snapshots, and then assign this list, through the Cue List function, to the buttons of the controller. This is very ineffective! It's annoying. At the same time, the additional worksheets cost the expensive workspace of the program.
I once again ask you to consider the opportunity to do without a second step. As far as I understand, this is not very difficult. To do this, just add the Automation function(Learn) in the Global snapshot menu. Why not do it? I am sure that you will receive thanks from many users.
Best regards,
Andrey.

I hear you, probably a good idea.
You can do it with OSC now, but I guess you need midi.
I'm a bit stuck with this viewtopic.php?f=8&t=92285 first

I understand you, Nikolai.
I hope the problem is solved( viewtopic.php?f=8&t=92285 first ) and you are ready to go further.
Implementation through the OSC seems to me not very beautiful. Try to find time and energy in the near future to realize my idea. I'm sure she will help a lot.

It seems to me that we need to add a list of snapshots and the possibility of assigning them to the buttons of the controller in the menu "Map controller":

Hi Nikolai,
Is there already a variant of solving my question? It would be nice to get you a test build of the program.

Hi Andrey
Please try this version, and see if it does what you need:
Windows 64:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/54guw6uk4yiup ... 4.zip?dl=1
Windows 32
https://www.dropbox.com/s/rgtesr7it008j ... 6.zip?dl=1

This version has a midi trigger icon next to each global snapshot.
Click on it and use the learn button.
For ease of use, it listens to all midi inputs.

Also in this version, the pfl function on each chain. (in future, I might add pfl on each plugin in the chain)

Changed the timing of cue lists from 50 to 5 ms. (let me know if this changes anything for you, it should not)

Great news, Nikolai! I'll be testing this evening.
Thank you!

Hi Nikolai,
And I conducted the first test. The controller buttons are assigned normally. There is instability in switching. Several times the buttons did not work and did not trigger snapshots switching. I can not give an exact diagnosis, because it happened at different times. I think there is a problem with switching logic.
But, in general, I am very satisfied. My dream is coming soon!
Thank you, Nikolai. You are doing a wonderful job!
Andrey.

Hi
Thank you for testing.
What midi messages are the buttons sending? Do they have velocity (like a drum pad or keys) ?

This is a MIDI organ. To switch snapshots, I use part of its register handles. For switching, they use the NOTE ON mode it

Hi
here

32bit:

This changes the way midi messages are compared, let me know if it helps

Hi Nikolai,
I today tested the basic operating modes. Everything works well! I think you managed to solve the problem.
Another useful function I see is to display the MIDI PANIC button on the main screen of the program and make it possible to assign it to the controller button via the LEARN function.
And the bild that you sent me already contains the changes to the topic ?

Hi
That is good to hear.
Yes this release includes the midi panic when turing on/off instruments (and bypass).
A midi panic button would maybe be a good idea.
You can already assign it to a midi controller though:

Hi Nikolai,
Yes, I know that way of destination. But, it is not very convenient.
The MIDI PANIC button on the main screen of the program, in the case of large problems with MIDI, where it is impossible to press the button of the controller, will make it possible to turn on this mode MIDI PANIC with the mouse or touchscreen. But, if you make this button difficult and takes time, then you can do this function in the next update. In the near future, I really want to see the release of version 2.1.6 Although, in terms functionality of the changes, your work is quite worthy of version 2.2 :D

Hi
Yes Andrew, I think I will skip 2.1.6 and go right for 2.2.0, there are some other features in there to, like improved audio cues etc.
Hope we can get it out in a week our so.
