Yeah, sorry, 8 is the limit for the release you have, will think of how to improve it in the current work I'm doing.

Hi,

I still have some problems with CSI, trying to set up my FPv2. The major hurdle I'm facing is the FX focus, which for me exhibits weird behavior.

I've understood that hidden tracks + follow MCP can cause malfunction of FocusedFXNavigator. Therefore I showed all tracks in the MCP and then changed to follow TCP.

Still, I get the same weird behavior:

FX zones work perfectly for all tracks up to a certain track number. After that track, only part of the mappings work (roughly half of the buttons for each FX). If I go even further up the tracks, no FX zone work at all. Focus remains at the selected track.

I don't know how to proceed, and would be grateful for some advise.

I cannot really go the fx menu-route, since I only have one fader.

What to do? (Does hidden tracks in the TCP also affect behavior -- sorry I'm at my summer house, so I can't test right now).

I know one of the things Geoff's working on is fixing various issues around FocusedFX. I'd advise patience for the time being and seeing what Geoff's next build includes. Hopefully it'll be sooner rather than later, but Geoff's recently been through cataract surgery and has a life outside of CSI beyond that, so patience is key.

Now...I still want to offer some help. Have you tried FocusedFXParam? You click an FX Parameter with your mause to make the FX Parameter in focus, and that parameter instantly maps to your fader with no specific fx.zon required. It's one of my favorite CSI features. Maybe you can get by with this in the meantime. Works great for one-fader surfaces. And as long as that mode is enabled, any FX Parameter you click on with your mouse is instantly mapped.

Here are the relevant sections in the .zon. I have Shift+F2 enabling that mode, and Shift+F1 returning back to Home and turning it off.

Code:
Zone Home
	IncludedZones
		"SelectedChannel|"	
	IncludedZonesEnd
ZoneEnd

Zone "SelectedChannel|"
	SelectedTrackNavigator
	Shift+F1			GoZone Home
	Shift+F2			GoZone FocusedFXParam
ZoneEnd

Zone "FocusedFXParam"
        Fader1 FocusedFXParam
	DisplayUpper1 FocusedFXParamNameDisplay
	DisplayLower1 FocusedFXParamValueDisplay
ZoneEnd

Thanks, Funkybot!

Knowing that Geoff is working on it helps alot. Going through surgery is no fun -- had a minor heart procedure myself a couple of months back.

I'll try to be patient.

Hi,

I discussed the hidden tracks focusedFXNavigator TCP/MCP issue with Geoff once, but there were some very basic paradigms involved so there was no immediate reaction to it. Itīs been a while and I canīt say if Geoff is working on it (presently).

The work around I found was pretty easy though, I simply moved all hidden tracks to the end of my projects (Which takes seconds in TrackManager) and unfold all childtracks in folders in the Mixer before focusing FX in MCP mode.

Thanks! Do you mean that also folders cause fx focus problems? Do I need to get all tracks OUT OF folders?

Varsågod

Yes ..., in my experience, folded child tracks did cause the same issues with Focusing FX as hidden tracks, namely focus didnīt work beyond any folder tracks with folded child tracks.

... and no, just keep the folders and child tracks as they are.

Just unfold the folderīs child tracks in the mixer, so that all tracks, folders and children thereof are visible in the Mixer.
(If itīs still not working, also unfold all folders in TCP)

I have all folders expanded now, in TCp and MCP and FX focus works well.

FYI update: The surgery is a success but there is now refractive work (lens) to do.

Unfortunately that leaves me with bad eyesight temporarily, so I can work, but it goes slowly

Anyway, the real update -- work is coming along -- when the next build is posted there will be support for 3rd party actions -- that means coders will be able to add Actions to CSI -- about as close as it will get to open source -- I think

Best wishes Geoff! Take it easy though as these things take time to heal.
