Definitely continuing on. Pan sliders and getting them positioned correctly has put a bump in the road I'm trying to climb over. These dual pans have thrown A monkey wrench at me since I know the code to adjust one pan slider where I would have thought it would have just been the same just a different defined Walter command to adjust the other of the dual pan controls but unfortunately
that would have made things too easy for a programming hack like me. ��

Below is the current obstical hold up. Looks like I got more docs to read as if the other 5 I've been referencing weren't already enough.

Ok, MCP pan slider monkey business figured out. Should start progressing more quickly now.

Gonna put this code right here for future reference:

Code:
;----------- Pan SLIDER WIDE START ---------------------------------	
set mcp.pan.fadermode [0] ;[0]=Slider [1]=knob ; Pan Slider
	
set mcp.pan h_der{x}<sml{x} [0] h_der{x}>300 [5 70 79 10 0 0 0 0] [5 55 79 10 0 0 0 0] ;Pan Slider Single [med] [small]
set mcp.pan.label h_der{x}<sml{x} [0] h_der{x}>300 [31 80 41 16 0 0 0 0] [31 65 41 16 0 0 0 0] ; Pan Slider Single label [med] [small]
	
set mcp.pan h_der{x}<sml{x} [0] trackpanmode>=4 h_der{x}>300 [5 57 79 10 0 0 0 0] [5 42 79 10 0 0 0 0] ;Pan Slider Dual Top Slider [med] [small]
set mcp.pan.label h_der{x}<sml{x} [0] trackpanmode>=4 h_der{x}>300 [31 65 41 16 0 0 0 0] [31 50 41 16 0 0 0 0] ;Pan Slider Dual Top Label [med] [small]
		
set mcp.width h_der{x}<sml{x} [0] trackpanmode>=4 h_der{x}>300 [5 83 79 10 0 0 0 0] [5 68 79 10 0 0 0 0] ; Pan slider Dual bottom slider [med] [small]
set mcp.width.label h_der{x}<sml{x} [0] trackpanmode>=4 h_der{x}>300 [26 92 41 16 0 0 0 0] [26 77 41 16 0 0 0 0] ; Pan slider Dual Bottom slider [med] [small]
	
set mcp.pan.label.color trackpanmode==6 [117 156 125] [170 170 170] ;[TOP] [BOTTOM]
	
;---------------- Pan SLIDER WIDE END ------------------------
Yeah! MCP Pan Sliders

Default FX Rack Expand on Select

I finished up adding Pan Sliders in the MCP Mixer section.

One thing I really dislike in the majority of the mixer options is how the FXs rack takes up so much screen space vertically when you resize the mixer vertically. I was trying to figure out a good way to limit that size of the FX rack which sits on top of the fader section in the MCP so when you resize the mixer vertically it would expand the fader/meter section more but was really struggling to come up with a good solution.

Here's what I came up with instead and am thinking of making this a default mixer load out behavior as well as modifying the other MCP layout options to do the same.

It hides the FX Rack but then expands it to the right of fader section upon selecting a track. When deselecting the track it hides the FX rack.

I was able to add this function by modifying one line of code in the rtconfig.txt file. Still need to tidy up a few other items but I'm really digging this.

Check this out and let me know your thoughts.

Ok, I fixed a few things so other elements are resizing properly during expand/collapse.

Here's a comparison showing the behavior of the new expandable FX rack MCP faders compared to exact same Fader where the FX rack is on the top of the fader section.

Check this out! The Mixer now behaves much more like Vegas but with the added benefit flexibility of Reaper. #Win/Win!


I'm going to work on getting the same type of behavior for some of the other MCP's including the default and when I get that completed I'll uploaded a v.3 release for everyone to check out.

v.3 is Live!
Major changes to the MCP Mixer Fader Layout options.
- Now has Pan Sliders in MCP
- Added an FX Rack Expand on Selected(EoS)Tracks Feature

The benefits to EoS is that it allows you to expand the mixer section vertically so you can get extended VU meters and Faders which I typically find more important than viewing 18 FX slots. While at the same time you can keep the width of the mixer channels narrower so you can see more faders in the mixer view while still having quick access to the full FX Rack view by just clicking on the channel if you prefer to work with the full FX rack viewable. As an added bonus, if for some odd reason 18 FX slots weren't enough for you to view on a channel at once, the FX rack is now able to expand out to 30 slots.

See image below or in Post#2 for the collection of MCP Fader options. Pan Sliders, Pan Knobs, FX Rack Always viewable, FX Rack out of your way, Long meters and Faders, short meters and faders, Long/Short Pan Sliders, Wide Channels, Narrow Channels....I think I got most preferences covered in the MCP mixer section layouts. Going to move onto the Master Mixer section and TCP layouts next to add some Pan sliders there as well.

I also fixed some Pan knobs that I broke in the MCP mixer section from the previous release.

Enjoy! Let me know your thoughts. Love it? Hate it?

Thanks! I will check to see what's going on. I noticed the MCP Master were messed up and have been working on fixing those as well.
