feature request: Supporting vst-automation and midi-feedback

Postby speedinator » Mon Oct 27, 2014 9:58 am

Hey Guys,

some time ago i promised to post a feature request for forte implementing support for automation of vst parameters. The idea is not really new and actually copied from ableton live. In Live you can map the automation parameters of a vst-plugin to your external controller. The result is a connection between:
1. midi in to vst-automation-parameter
but also
2. vst-automation-parameter to midi out

Mapping a controller to vst-parameters is not the real deal as it can be done internally in most plugins and also in the forte midi-menu. The main advantage of this feature in Live is nr. 2, because it enables midi-feedback to your controller. In Ableton i can adjust vst-parameters by using my computer mouse and the my midi-controllers is synced automativally. Also when i change through vst-presets the controller is updated immediately. There are quite a few new midi controllers on the market (Behringer 2000, Mackie control, DJ techtools or tablet based midi-controllers) which are able to receive an visualise midi feedback. Not an existential but quite pleasing...

From my own (little) experience of programming i know that implementiong and coding new features is not easy task with plenty of trial and error. But i could not resist bringing up this request! Maybe i am the only one with this feature on my whishlist?

Anway, forte is the best live-vst-host...

Best, speedi.
