Macros on Plugins

(mr_mark_dollin) #1

I might be missing something here, but I can seem to find the use of the Macros being on the Plugin tab. No matter what I do I cannot get the Macros to link to anything in any plugin instrument I load. Am I confusing the role of the Macros here? Are there just for reference incase you’re blending a plugin instrument with a sampled one and you want to have a handy knob to alter stuff in the Sampler while you’re you’re looking at the Plugin tab. :blink:

Perhaps if I haven’t confused myself here, then may I suggest that the Macros operate the raw parameters on Plugin instruments, much like the Doofer does?

The macros only work on fx and modulation chains for the sample area.
I suspect they may play a role for plugins and midi in later versions, but that suspicion is only based on the fact that the macro dials don’t disappear when switching tabs.

Ok so it’s vague. I’ll let my curiosity rest on the matter for now.

yeah, it would be nice to have macros controlling VST/AU parameters !
