Does anyone have any extensive references to plugin "Fader" usage? For example, Blue Cat mentions using it here:https://www.bluecataudio.com/Tutorials/ ... _LogicPro/
(the URL is a lie... this doesn't have anything to do with side chains as we normally know them)
Specifically, you can tell their plugin to output certain values as "Automation Output" which, apparently, Logic treats sorta like, but not exactly like, MIDI controller values. You can also tell their plugin to spit out actual MIDI controller values as a separate option.
Now, for something like a volume level, 127 values is probably plenty of resolution. But for frequency values? Not so much. 14 bits would probably be fine-ish. A 32-bit float would definitely do the trick with room to spare.
Anyways, for the sake of example, if I were to take the "Center Frequency" output from their "FreqAnalyst Pro" plugin and connect that to the input for Logic Pro's Channel EQ "Peak 2 Frequency" I would think that I could have a simple setup that would (basically) isolate the root frequency of a simple source signal. Burning the output of the plugin into an automation channel's values would also be a possibility.
I'm comfortably mucking about with the Enviroment, writing script, whatever. Getting an Audio Unit compiling is a bit of a pain in the ass, but also do-able. But the documentation for this part of Logic (the Filter values) feels pretty thin on the user side. I'll go spelunking in the AU dev docs now, but I figured I'd ask if this is familiar ground for anyone.
Why I would want to do this, or anything similar, is a different subject, entirely. Basically, I want to be able to connect existing and highly functional tools together in Logic to achieve results that aren't standard fare. Yes, I have a *nix background, lol.
FWIW, I'm currently using the demo version of that plugin to see if it fits my needs. It definitely does spit data out.
