I can use your automation tool to ‘bring to light’ the control on the VST GUI from the sea of possible controls, then use the standard Renoise controls to add that param to the pattern data. Thats a workaround.
I wonder if it’s possible to transcribe automation window ‘points’ into the pattern data.
It’s just that generally I prefer to hammer numbers in rather than work with the curves or points in the auto editor … but your method here of picking up a VST control and then manipulating it is awesome.
The perfect solution, for me, would be to write into the pattern data directly from the VST control
The transcribing to pattern could be done, it could be a bit tricky on implementation due to the fx lanes allowing
any command anywhere i.e. not having dedecated fx lanes for each command. I `m sure some compromise would be possible though.
With writing from the VST control, afaik this couldn
t be done neatly with the current API. Heres the post from earlier in the thread after Djeroek was asking the same:
I would love to see an option to write modulation even if i dont move by the knob (so you can easily overdub previously recorded modulations) with some resolution setting(like write point for every 4 lines). Just idea )
Certainly further improvements to consider. Needs the will/ time from me for a good burst of scripting though…
