New Tool (3.1) Device Sergeant (June 2017)

In the side-chain tool they should sync automatically in the side-chain send tracks, when the gui is open anyway? --might be a bug or limitation if not working properly

This tool can be used on any ‘named group of DSPs’ of your choice. So e.g. you can rename 3 filters (of the same type) to “Filt 1” and control the cutoff/ res parameters for all together, no matter what track they are on.

Macro renaming can be done via the gui of the tool aswell: All devices named Filter -> Filt 1

though you need to do it manually if you only want to rename a sub-set of devices, say half of the devices already named filter.

0.58, minor: delete button now red

Now up on tools site:

v0.60
-Minor update to device count readout, shows what device you have selected in format: (current/total)

I can foresee so many situations that makes autamation control better.

Great work!

Your mention of automation gave me an idea for a button for the empty space…

version 0.63:

New button added: [Map Hydra]

This button adds a Hydra device after the currently selected device. It then routes the selected parameter for all the devices selected by the tool to the Hydra–(Hydra Max-parameter-count is 9, so only first 9 devices can be routed).

(see above post for [Map Hydra] button)

0.64

-Fixed a few small bugs,
-improved gui feedback
-you can now sync mixer devices

v0.65 up on tools site

-Hydra initial Input slider now sets to same as tool parameter slider value

V0.66

-Added 4 new “nudge” buttons beneath the main slider.

These nudge all targeted parameters while keeping their relative positions unlike the slider which sets all values to the same amount.

(NOTE: relative positions are not preserved once sliders get to max/ min values)

v 0.70 Updated menu behaviour to always open/ re-initialise the tool and bring it to front and centre
v 0.66 Added 4 new “nudge” buttons beneath the main slider.

Now on Tools site with updated menu behaviour.

v1.12

Added a button that will take you to the next (if any) missing plug.

i.e. For when loading an old xrns and there are missing/unloaded VST fx in the mixer.
If no missing plugs found then pressing button gives a status message.

You can also delete all instances of the selected missing plug, with Delete All button if wanted .

  • NOTE: as of v1.12, this button will not be visible on startup unless there are missing plugs in the song.

find missing device

Plug not found

Quickfixes:

v1.12 - fixes a bug that would fire error when a plug had no parameters e.g. an analysis plug.
.Also new […] button will not show up on startup if there are no missing plugs
v1.11 - fixes small bug when a single device is present in current track before the selected device

v 1.15

-Now added solo button which will solo all the tracks that contain the selected device

dev seargeant solo

v 1.16

-Solo function deals with groups better:

  • Group Tracks without the selected device on them or in one of its members will be muted as expected.
  • If a Group Track has the selected device on it, it will be unmuted along with all of its members. So now you hear the correct audio going through that instance of the selected device.
  • If a track has the selected device on it, the parent group will now be unmuted too. Again so you can hear the audio passing through.

Known/discovered Issue

Some parts of tool will not work correctly when you have collapsed groups, such as [<][>] buttons. Currently not possible to work around because of this bug:
