Re: VSTGUI4 - can you mix XML-design and the old Draw context?

Hi,
sure you can register your own custom view so that you can use it via xml.

Re: VST3 and MIDI CC pitfall

Hi Chris, in VST3 an instrument declares all its changeable properties via parameters. In your case, you create a parameter for the damper pedal and you can use IMidiMapping to tell the host that this parameter should map to the damper pedal MIDI control change message.
