IHostApplication: get detailed information about the host?

Hi,

I thought it would be useful to get more than just the name:
  • product name
  • vendor
  • version major, minor, rev
  • maybe additional fields, like support, url, ...
This could be the same for both plugin and host.

What do you think?

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

We will discuss this at Steinberg how we can put this into an API. Ideally we would need something like this: /* implemented by the host */ class IMidiLearnProvider: public FUnknown { public: /* starts a midi learn from the host */ virtual tresult PLUGIN_API startMidiLearn(ParamID id) = 0; virtual ...

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

The VST3-Spec does allow to set multiple parameters with the same MIDI CC. If this doesn't work in the hosts, than I would think that this is a bug in these hosts. According to IMidiMapping: class IMidiMapping: public FUnknown { public: virtual tresult PLUGIN_API getMidiControllerAssignment (int32 ...

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

I also think that having 16 * 128 virtual midi cc parameter is the wrong way. If the user has two MIDI CC going to the same parameter (it is possible with IMidiMapping right?), then you can also have a race if there are two concurrent automation on that MIDI CC. If I'm correct, then hiding the MIDI ...

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.

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

u-he is trying to provide a consistent user experience across different plugin interfaces, hosts and operating systems.
Offering a standard way for the user to map MIDI CC through the host, should not exclude the plugin from doing it as well.
Same idea, but from two different point of view, isn't it?

How to map a MIDI CC to multiple parameters?

Hi,

In u-he products it was possible in VST2 to map a single MIDI CC to multiple parameters. It seems that in VST3, a MIDI CC can be mapped to only one parameter. Is it correct? If yes, what would be the solution for u-he?

Thank you.

Alex.
