Control from external surface (bcr2000) for open plugin only (vst) and misc questions.

Postby Steavy » Thu Jul 20, 2017 2:35 pm

Question 1

I tried to use the bcr2000 , but unfortunately when i link a parameter to a knob (on multiple copy of the same vst plugin), obviously all instance of the same plugin receive the same CC , and move accordly .

There's a way to send the same CC , for the same knob and move only the one with the GUI open?

Question 2

For the sorely purpose of keeping clean layouts , i use some empty groups (like show in the picture below) , do you know if it cause Cpu consuming ?

Question 3

There's a way to see , a single plugin Cpu usage?

Question 4 (no , it's not :) )

What an awesome piece of software , congratulation to the developers !!!

Thanks in Advance

You could achieve that by setting up something where you have multiple CC To Params and a Switcher in front with
the active output controlled by using the Open UI parameter of the plugins and some logic BUT you won't be
able to get MIDI Feedback going on with that (which might be why you are using a bcr 2000).

Of course there is some extra cpu usage coming from using group but it's minimal.

No.

Seb, beat me to the concept :) and makes another point w/feedback.

I'm relative new user as well, and did this raw implementation :roll: , you could experiment from.
I just used my key/controller and tested w/notes...
