Let’s say that I want to automate second envelope’s attack in Zebra:
I add instrument automation device
then in that device I click on one of linked plugin’s parameters, menu with all automatable parameters pops up
The problem is, there are gazillion positions in that menu and names don’t tell much - ie. there are so many parameters just named “atk”, going random or remembering which one is which is insane, just testing everything and writing it down for future reference would be an awfully tedious work and the idea that I’d have to routinely do this with every plugin I intend to automate sends chills down my spine
Kind of lame shortcut with Zebra is to assign parameters to XY pad, but then everything has to be checked by ear to find out which one is which and most synthesizers don’t offer such pads so it’s not a reliable option.
In Ableton for example one or two clicks and everything is set. Is there a way (in pre 3.0 Renoise versions anyway) to detect those parameters so the user doesn’t have to point to them from the list manually?
