Control Bus Volume - Pedal

Postby Steve1974 » Mon Sep 23, 2013 3:29 pm


i would like to use a Volume pedal to control the Master-Volume (Bus Volume).
The Pedal is plugged into a keyboard which sends Control change messages.

I found the "automated fader" by don't know how to set it up.

How could this be accomplished?

Thank you very much in advance.

best regards,

This post made my day! I never realized you could assign midi CC's to vst parameters this way. I gave up on using OBXD, SAM! and Redtron vstis, because they didn't respond to my volume pedal. Now they do!
I found that I didn't need the extra step of adding the channel strip, just do the same procedure to your vst.

Thank you!
