Re: How to map a MIDI CC to multiple parameters?

No, the host records parameter automation, not MIDI-CC automation. The IMidiMapping only tells the host which MIDI-CC maps to which parameter. If the user turns a knob on his MIDI remote control then the host maps this change to the parameters in the IMidiMapping and as the host knows about which pa...

Re: How to map a MIDI CC to multiple parameters?

Do you recommend to create 16 * 128 parameters and map each of them to a single MIDI CC? We're fine with the ambiguous case of concurrent parameter automation and MIDI CC, as it is already "solved" for the other plugin format. Interesting, how did you "solve" it ? And I cannot recommend something h...

Re: How to map a MIDI CC to multiple parameters?

And one more thing, when you do implement this yourself, you most likely will have problems with automation. What if the user had a recorded automation of one of the parameters and now records an automation for the proxy parameter. Both automation will fight against each other which value will be th...

Re: How to map a MIDI CC to multiple parameters?

Sure, one view of the plug-in developer and one view from the host developer. I'm not entirely sure, but I think it's more common that a user is using one host application with multiple plug-ins than one plug-in in multiple hosts. If you as a plug-in developer want to implement this feature, you hav...

Re: How to map a MIDI CC to multiple parameters?

Normally the host should implement MIDI-CC to Parameter mapping, tho not all hosts do this especially not mapping multi parameters. Plug-Ins should only provide defaults. The reason why the host should be responsible is that the user of the host should have a consistence workflow and not learn how t...
