Does anybody have a quick snippet for setting an instrument to a plugin like Nexus (Audio/Generators/AU/aumu:NEXU:reFX)? In Renoise.Song.API.lua, I can’t, for the life of me, see how to set the plugin_device.name in the renoise.InstrumentDevice since it is read-only.
Thanks for this. Works like a charm. I’d like to set Nexus to one of its internal presets, but I can’t see how to do this. When I look at the presets property, there is only one. When I go to Nexus editor, I see many presets. Is there a way to use lua to set nexus to one of its internal presets?
It may very well be, that the VST version of Nexus may not show all presets too. Since Nexus is a Rompler and probably has several thousand presets, it would be kinda impossible to show all to the host. Instead those instruments use their own internal preset handling and often only communicate the loaded one to the host. A lot of Windows VSTs do similar behaviour here. One idea i had was saving the VSTi/AU as XRNI and load that with a script, but i haven’t found a function with a quick look through the docs, which can load an instrument from a file.
