By the way, can you control the pitch and other controls using renoise using the vstiautomate device? If so, how exactly are the parameters laid out? All I have are pan, volume and 4 user for each channel. I assume there’s some way to define those user knobs (and I also assume it’s the macro section I hope to define).
I see your point It-Alien, even though the VSTdevice easily allows you to see what parameter you’re controling, MIDIcc device seems to offer a more universal solution, and would work well in a live situation, (providing you have a good controller keyboard/unit). Apart from that I can’t see what other advantages this method has to offer.
Is it faster, more accurate, prevents those often occuring vst bugs?
Normally I don’t need to contrl dozens of VST parameters, so I don’t need to search for parameters into the VSTdevice slider jungle: with MIDIdevice I can decide what to see. It’s much more simple and neat for me. And yes, it normally works even when VSTdevice fails.
only problem: works only if the instrument supports MIDI learn and/or MIDI CC’s
