API for "possible undo point"?

When (from the controller) the user edits a parameter, this is an obvious place for hosts to create an undo point. It's up to the host, and it might be limited to one undo point per second or something, but the basic principle is there. If the user is editing a more complex graphical control (such a...

Re: Generating MIDI Output (repeating a loop)

OK - so it's new, and doesn't sound like it's widely supported yet. I'll just delay implementing this plugin for now, and see how things progress.

Thanks,

Re: VST3 and MIDI CC pitfall

Hi, from my personal point of view, a plug-in should not handle MIDI-CC at all. It's the responsibility for the host to map input events to parameter changes. Hi Arne! What I personally think is that MIDI provided two things which are quite valuable: an ontology of semantic parameter meanings autom...

Generating MIDI Output (repeating a loop)

Hi, I'm trying to create an effect which reads MIDI loops (played in for now, or eventually loaded externally), and plays them back with the notes snapped to a new chord, with the chord determined by input MIDI. It'd be a kind of auto-accompaniment thing. Storing and outputting notes works fine, and...

Which hosts use 32-bit floats?

Given that supporting 32-bit floats is an option, I'd like to test it out a proper environment. Which hosts should I use for this? I currently have a compatibility hack (wrapper class for Vst::AudioBusBuffers which copies data from 32-bit to 64-bit buffers, and copies back on destructor). It works (...

Re: Vst::kDistributable - remote processing

I've seen enough people excited about REAPER's ReaMote tool (similar goals) that I think there's a market for it, when a host does implement it properly. I also hope that at some point, this will work well with the ELK support which was announced a few months ago. Being able to (for example) control...
