I guess you want to capture an instruments automation to populate the automation device one by one here.
The only way to do this in one go with this tool is to automate the parameter after you have captured it and then move on to the next capture. Otherwise the tool will `overwrite` that parameter you just captured with the next capture. The function checks if parameter `is_automated` in the automation device. A non automated parameter is considered a free slot to put the newly captured parameter in.
- Would be very handy, if it could setup the instrument automation device automatically for selected vsti, only if there is no one existing for the vsti in the track...
I added the add automation device shortcut for this. The other options I guess would be to check what VSTis have notes in the current track (could be a bit slow for real time use). Add a button to GUI -- clutter/ more scanning for visual feedback.
Or just automatically adding for each selected instrument could result in a lot of unwanted mess-- renoise`s general, use any instrument anywhere principle causing its usual problems
edit: AFAIR a further problem with automation devices is that the API can`t see which instrument it is pointing to which makes checks impossible.
- Can I borrow parts of your code for my shortcut collection?
yes, go ahead, thanks for asking
