Re: Control Surface Help Needed

OK, here's your solution that gives you want you need on a per-track basis... 1. Have the AutoWah plugin open. 2. Add the MIDI FX Modifier plugin to your track. Screen Shot 2019-08-03 at 1.52.05 AM.png For Input Event , select 1 Mod Wheel as shown. Note the other settings as well (Scale = 100%, and ...

Re: Control Surface Help Needed

But wait! There's more! Any Logic plugin parameters you control with a learned MIDI message (e.g., CC1) and record will survive as recorded plugin parameters even if you delete the CC assignment. Here, the CC1 messages are simply remote-controlling the parameter (in your case, AutoWah filter frequen...

Re: Control Surface Help Needed

You're not doing anything wrong... And as this might be the first time you've heard those words in quite some time, especially from me, I urge you to cherish the moment. ;) Whenever you learn (that is, "assign") a MIDI event to a Logic parameter in the Control Surface Assignments system, t...

Re: please help me set up ARTz•ID properly with VEPro

Hi Rob, I'll definitely get you up and running, no problem! Because of the intricacies of LASS, I think the easiest way to help you would be via email, or even with a combination of a phone call Plus a TeamViewer session so I can view your set up and show you some options.

Re: please help me set up ARTz•ID properly with VEPro

Thanks for your kind comments! Using notes on your keyboard to select articulations is fine, but the system isn't designed to use keyswitches to select sections and MIDI channels to then select articulations. You asked in your previous post if that was a logical way to approach things, and I'd like ...

Re: please help me set up ARTz•ID properly with VEPro

Hi Rob, The best approach would be to divide your LASS strings into 5 instances, one for each section (vn1, vn2, va, vc, cb). Trying to pack all of that stuff into one instance is too unwieldy both from a technical and organizational perspective. And there's no downside to using multiple VEPro insta...

Re: Scripter Feature Suggestions

Here's an off-the-top-of-my-head Scripter wish list, some of which may mirror ideas you've already presented... 1) Get the Console/Logger to reflect the true MIDI output of the Scripter. Case in point, vis a vis a slightly extreme example... A Script is programmed to pass Note Ons in real time, but ...

Re: Can I use Scripter Sliders as displays and if so, how ? Topic is solved

Well, it's not like the environment is a separate component. I think it would be fair to say that Logic is the environment, and that the environment is Logic.

As for improvements to the Scripter and whether we'll see improvements in the future... I guess it's fun to speculate. :wink:

Re: Can I use Scripter Sliders as displays and if so, how ? Topic is solved

...apart from hiding the top section there is no way to actually scale and position the sliders and value boxes, right ? Having control over the appearance and layout of GUI controls is sorely lacking. The only thing you can do is change the order in which they (serially) appear. About the only fle...

Re: Can I use Scripter Sliders as displays and if so, how ? Topic is solved

Mmmm.... maybe we're going a little more than "just a bit off-piste" with this discussion. So I'll just say two things... A) I'm not confusing the actions of the update parameters and parameter changed functions. B) a great many of the behaviors you've described don't jibe at all with my e...

Re: Can I use Scripter Sliders as displays and if so, how ? Topic is solved

I don't find SetParameter expensive at all. OTOH, I find Idle() to be exactly that. It's called every 500 ms, and implementing will cause the Scripter GUI to become very laggy. At the very least it's unnerving to monitor. I've also found UpdatePluginParameters to be very tricky to implement, because...

Re: Can I use Scripter Sliders as displays and if so, how ? Topic is solved

Cool! +1 to what Dewdman said. In my scripts I always explicitly define whether a parameter is allowed to be automatable (or not). But I believe I read somewhere that all parameters are automatable by default. There are two parameter attributes which I believe are undocumented: disableAutomation and...

Re: Can I use Scripter Sliders as displays and if so, how ? Topic is solved

Here's an example of how a GUI control can display the value of a variable. Here, variable "r" will be a random number from 1 to 10 that changes every time you play a key. SetParameter(0,r); But the result of reading that value in SetParameter doesn't just display the random number... Inst...

Re: Can I use Scripter Sliders as displays and if so, how ? Topic is solved

I believe it's documented in the Logic Studio Effects Manual. When Scripting was first introduced, the Scripter documentation only mentioned the GetParameter function, but I believe it's since been updated to include SetParameter.

Re: Can I use Scripter Sliders as displays and if so, how ? Topic is solved

Here's a simple example where there are two GUI controls... one's a slider, the other is a menu. They display in real time the velocity and pitch of incoming notes. In the PluginParameters array, each parameter is an element (as with any other array), and the first element is numbered zero. To that ...

Hey FF! Use the SetParameter(p,v) function, where p = the parameter number or name (in quotes) and v = the value.
