Default Is mouse over parameter control possible?

So some plugins(and reaper) support instances where you can mouse over a parameter and use your scroll wheel to move it. This doesn't cause a "learn" function to be tying up resources or anything - it's just only when you've moused over something.

Is it possible to get this function in a script assignable to a midi controller?


I.e. you've got 1 cc knob that is assigned to a custom action that simply changes the parameter you've moused over until you're not longer mousing it over?

This is the action you are looking for: Adjust last touched FX parameter (MIDI CC/OSC only)

Just assign your preferred CC to it.

Maybe with some hack that sends generic operating system mouse messages at the current mouse cursor position. (For example the Novation Nocturn MIDI controller software has that hack.)

The host application itself doesn't generally have any information what is in the plugin GUIs. (I think VST3 allows adding support for that, but I doubt there are any plugins around that implement it.)

I know it was implemented usually by developers, but a similar functionality used to be in reaper as well.

thanks stevie, I'll try that, is it native? or on reapack?

Been wishing for this for years and asked a few times if it was scriptable. You have to actually move the control with your mouse before the action will work, so it's not as ideal as a simple mouse-hover-take-over situation.

But I still use the action all the time.
