Also, a couple potential feature requests.

Could there be an "Instruments" filter? that would only show VSTi/VST3i? I think that would be extremely useful.

Also, could there be a toggle option to open inserted FX in the Track FX Window, rather than a floating window? I don't know if that's possible or not.

The last useful thing I could think of would be, when you drag an FX into the Track FX Window, being able to drag it to a specific slot. Like you can from the regular Reaper Browser.

This is an absolutely fantastic script, and it's become my main FX browser. Completely replaced the stcok reaper one, even without the above improvements.

Ah yes, "FX" filter does not currently exclude actions and starred templates. Good eye, thanks! Will be fixed in the next update.

Sounds like you have an outdated SWS. REAPER v6+ requires SWS 2.11+ due to the TCP overhaul. Check out SWS pre-releases here.

If you add "3i"/"2i" as a part of a search string (e.g. "reaktor 2i") you will get only instruments. As of a dedicated filter, it is possible and I will consider it.

Currently, if you add an FX while having a relevant FX chain open, the plugin will not be floated but rather put in the chain. And vice versa if a chain is closed. This way one gets best of both worlds without the need to toggle anything. Having said that, the force option is possible.

This would be useful indeed, but there is no necessary API available at the moment. Maybe in the future.

Oh, interesting. I have the most recent stable SWS (2.10.0). I didn't realize I would need a prerelease version. Good to know.

The main reason I'd want this is for easy separation of Favorites. You could have separate Instrument favorites and Effects favorites, with easy access to both by changing the search filter.

For me, I'd always want it to open in the Track FX Window. But since other people have different workflows, I suggested a toggle.

Thanks for elaborating on "why". Added both to the to-do.

As of the second one, there will be a drop-down list to choose what to do with plugin UIs:
"Always show in chain"
"Always float"
"Context dependent" (current behavior).

1.
something weird happened if I insert plugin with no track selected,
it inserts wrong plugin.

2.
also, If I select track and insert plugin via QA2
it inserts correct plugin and ...after a few second it inserts a random plugin.

check the video below.
this seemed only happens when I insert by mouse clicking.



the 2nd problem only happen after the 1st one I mentioned above.

Replicated, thanks. It also requires "Clear search box after insertion" to be on. Will be fixed in the next update.

Also, replicated. This one is macOS specific and stems from a REAPER buglet. If you click inside QA2 GUI right after you insert a plugin this way, everything will behave as expected.

In any case, the issue will be remedied in the next update as well. Thanks for the report!

Don't know if this has been mentionned but the script doesn't seem to support retina screens.

I quickly made a try with my retina code in your script and it does work. But know you'd need to upscale evertyhign by 200% for it to not be so tiny.

Any I thought you'd like to have a look at this thread:
https://forum.cockos.com/showthread.php?t=230120

here's the little function, I tried on your script. and I ran it aside your main function just to see:

Code:
function gfx_RetinaMode()
        local retinaScale = 1
	local dpi_retval, dpi_value = reaper.ThemeLayout_GetLayout('trans', -3) -- current dpi; 256 = non retina; 512 for retina


	if tonumber(dpi_value) == 256 then -- if dpi~=retina, set the gfx.ext_retina to 0
		retinaScale = 0
	end
	gfx.ext_retina= retinaScale -- Retina
	return retinaScale
end

hmm the script size can be set manually in its Preferences. Have you tried 4k-8k "optimized for" sizes? Does it still look tiny? If so could you post a screenshot?

I haven't used gfx.ext_retina to give more sizing options, but I will sure take a second look if the current options are not enough.

Maybe I don't understand how to set the screen size but here are my findings:

1080p without gfx.retina:


1080p with gfx.retina:


4K with gfx.retina:



seems like 4K with gfx.retina would be my best bet but the everytime I open the window in that mode. I shows up a huge window and I must resize it it manually

It should be as easy as going in the preferences and setting a size.

But I believe I get what you mean - without gfx.ext_retina the script's GUI looks blurry even if it's big.

Thanks for the screenshots!

Could you clarify what you mean by "resize it manually"? Do you mean you have to switch the "optimized for" size to 4K in the QA2 preferences? Once you set it, the script should remember it. What size does it reset to?

To not get the blurry GUI, I must choose "4K".
But a 4K size will yield a BIG gui. If I click and drag the GUI's lower right corner to resize the window, it is not remember when I close and reopen the window.

Here's a screenshot. Note that the size is not remembered when I restart the script.

Ah, I think I know what is happening here - the size gets saved in retina resolution, but then it gets multiplied again on reopening. Thanks for the demo!

Would you mind if I PMed you a test build later with retina tweaks implemented? Without a HiDPI screen at hand I'm somewhat driving blind here, so it would be the best to confirm its working before I add it to a stable release.

v2.20 is live! Here's what's new:

Text selection for editing
+ marquee select search box text
+ "Ctrl(Cmd) + A" or double-click a search query to select all text
+ "Ctrl(Cmd) + Left/Right" to move one word at a time
+ "Shift + Left/Right" to select one letter at a time
+ "Ctrl(Cmd) + Shift + Left/Right" to select one word at a time
+ "Home" to go to start of the search query
+ "End" to go to the end of search query

The docked mode
+ right-click the hints bar to dock/undock the script's GUI
+ automatically set result rows number when docked
+ option to show result placeholders when docked
+ highlight the GUI when docked and the script is focused
+ temporarily undock the script when user opens QA2 Preferences
+ adjust results text size for the docked mode
+ open the filter tray vertically when docked and GUI width is less than the tray width

Various
+ option to float FX at mouse cursor
+ maximum number of result rows increased to 99 for the undocked mode
+ unlock minimum horizontal GUI size
+ HiDPI/Retina displays support
# make sure ALT + Key shortcuts do not collide with SHIFT + ALT + Key
# fixed the "FX" filter sorting
# fixed search box memory clearing when backspasing a whole query
# insert correct result when no tracks selected and "Clear search box after insertion" is on
# don't reset QA2 result selection after insertion if search box is empty
# bypass gfx.mouse_cap hang on macOS when inserting FX through double-clicking

How do you change which docker is the script in?

Here are a few suggestions:
  • Mousewheel scroll up/down throught the list, that way, no need to move the window to allow more searches to show.
  • When instantiating the script, showing the last used action
  • After a few seconds reset the search
  • When starting the search, don’t show the full list yet. Just show the first result in the search bar as an auto-completion. Then if the user hits the down arrow, show the full list
  • Being able to omit vowels in searches: Searching for stp would yield stop.

Really liking the new updates (especially retina support)! But I currently have it set to toggle open and closed with a keyboard shortcut and every time I do, it opens undocked. Is this something that needs fixing or am I just missing something?

Also, as a request for when the script is docked (and possibly also when it's not): As names of actions can tend to be quite long, for any names that get cut off, is it possible to either make the font smaller or wrap the text over to a new line?

You're welcome guys!

Updated to v2.21 - fixed recalling docked state on QA2 reopening.

The same way as every other docked window in REAPER - first dock the script, then drag it to whatever docker you need.

Oh so you added actions !


Nice


I tried to search for "Select all tracks" but I only get 5 results, and not the desired action. Maybe the parsing is too strict or something ?


Best,

Open QA2 Preferences and raise the Result rows number (under Search and insertion options). Or when you search something press F7/F8 to decrease/increase the number of rows. If docked it will be set automatically.

F8 does bring more results, but I'm surprise there isn'tsome kind of scrolling,with keyboard arrows or with mousewheel and scrollbar :S
Bringing more entry isn't the perfect solution as it can be pretty low on the list :P

There's such thing as design choice. QA2 follows a similar paradigm to auto-suggestions in search engines - it gives you top results that you can navigate, add and run.

Having said that, the script has started to morph into more of a browser thing so the time of scrollable lists may come.

Wouldn't it be more logical and faster to simply use a better search query? Scrolling to the bottom of a long list is far from a perfect solution.

I concur with X-Raym.
Sometimes you're not sure about the exact query you're looking for so you type a few character and you look for what you need.

@Neutronic
Better search query than "Select all tracks" for the "Select all tracks" action ? That will be hard to find :P





Unless I type the whole thing but even in this case it doesn't appear first, compared to search engine match







Scroll feature is more easy to implement than "matching" algorythm IMHO.

I assume you wanted to get "Set all FX offline for selected tracks", right? Then you could use either of the ones in the examples below.

In both cases instead of pressing down arrow, simply hit up once to go in reverse and select your desired result.

I wasn't talking about matching algorithm of search engines. I explained why there is currently no scrollbar in the script.

But speaking about matches, even AI-powered auto-suggestions require you to type a pretty specific term to get it first in the list.

Though wait, are we talking first in the list now? I thought you wanted to scroll down to the bottom of a long list

In QA2, if you know there's something you often want as first/close to the top, then simply star it and you will have to barely type anything from then on:

Hmmm I think there is a bit of confusion there with was I was trying to achieve and how, which prevent good interpretation of my feedback, so let me try to recap more clearly ^^



I was looking for the Tracks: Select all track actions. Not "Set all FX offline for selected tracks" or any other actions. Just the plain old basic Tracks: Select all track actions.

So keywords:
Code:
Select all tracks.

Though, this doesn't return the desired actions. It returns 4 very different actions.






Proposition:
If we could scroll to other possible match, then I could scroll to the desired action.


There is no need there for Artificial Intelligence, complete paradigm shift or core UX redesign. Just a need for a scroll feature to see more possible results. No more no less ^^


As you said:

the script has started to morph into more of a browser thing so the time of scrollable lists may come.

It is what the FastFX Finder action does :P

Ah got it, it's a different search query. Still, currently the best workflow for such cases is to find it with a longer string and add it to favorites. Then it will be a top match without any need for scrolling.

But as I have said by now multiple times, the feature request might come later, it's on the to-do. Were it as simple as flipping a switch it'd be here already. So far other features have been of higher priority. I code the script in my free time, and obviously it is limited.

We seem to be running in circles here. Again, I wasn't talking about matching algorithms or paradigm shifts - I simply explained you why there is currently no scroll bar.

@Neutronic
If it is ok the road map then good ! That will probably solved the issue.



Take your time, absolutely no rush about that. I know it is extra complex. And sorry again for the unclear report. Good luck


Justva final note : if my report made you think I was considering than scrollbar integration is a simple thing, then I completely ruined it. I feel quite embarassed right know.

Could you please confirm you're running QA v2.21 (not zero)? The hotfix specifically addressed the issue.


@X-Raym It's all good, don't worry, and thanks for the input.

It shouldn't do that unless one specifically sets it in the script's Preferences.

Could you tell me what option is selected in Preferences --> Database --> Auto Refresh? The default is "once per REAPER startup" but you can disable automatic refreshing altogether there.

Also, are you running the latest v2.21 of the script?

Is there any chance there could be an action to refresh the database so that refreshing could be disabled but then if a setting isn't showing up then we can just hit the action to have it refresh. Or maybe have a button in the quick adder to generate the refresh. That would kick butt.

You can already do that - press F5 on your keyboard while in QA2 to refresh the database at any time, or go to QA Preferences --> Database and press the Force Refresh button.
