You sure will

And you will also be able to heavily customize your setup, if you wish

By that I mean you can configure any button to "Do" a Reaper action.

Reaper actions are not limited to the actions in the action list, but include things like the transport, faders, etc.

Which reminds me, have to write display actions for the C4 LCD's, I'll put it on the list...

Feedback commands can be midi, osc and ... anything else make sense ?

I certainly want to write feedback stuff for
  • Midifighter Twister
    16 LED strips around the knobs


  • Novation Dicer
    2 x 5 buttons that can take on six different colours. I use them for plugin acceess and to trigger a bunch of commands. I would need to try to get the current mode of a unit and colour the buttons accordingly. If I cannot do this with your stuff, I may even write a Lua script or perhaps, maybe learn C++ for that.

  • Behringer X-Control Mini

    Lcd strips around 8 knobs, 16 lit/unlit buttons. I already light up buttons with Lua scripts when one of the buttons that triggers bank changes on my MFTs is pressed.

  • Korn nanopad2 (if possible)
    Probably nothing here though
  • MCU LCD strip
    Some cool shit I might lift from the old Avid Icons.

A donation will be on the way shortly Geoff. Personally I hope Cockos sees the progress and hires you to keep developing it. They're not tackling this kind of stuff yet, so I hope we can keep you on the project.

If you could make the display change in accordance with the function, on multi function buttons, so I could have the freq and the q on the same know but a push would toggle between them and the display would show the function.

Well that would be freakin awesome.


Will the C4FX.ini file be even relevant then? Or am I wasting my time adding to it needlessly.


By the way if you need anything tested, (to check it's dummy proof), let me know.

Yup, definitely on the roadmap, probably not version 1 though

Yeah, other than learning about mapping generally, the C4FX.ini stuff is a waste of time.

The new format is much simpler, you just have a surface (e.g. Mix1), a control name (e.g. Fader6), and an action (e.g. TrackVolume).

So, something like

<Mix1
Fader4 TrackVolume
Fader5 TrackVolume
Fader6 TrackVolume

Mute4 Track Mute
Mute5 Track Mute
Mute6 Track Mute

<FX ReaEQ
Rotary1 LFGain
Rotary2 LFFeq
>

<FX Another EQ
Rotary1 LoGain
Rotary2 LoFeq
>

I take it all mappings will be sticky to each plugin no matter which slot it's in on each channel.

Yes, of course.

The whole design is based on GUIDs for both tracks and FX so track/slot order does not affect anything

Sweet, what do you reakon is the time scale for version 1?

And again, if you need a beta tester...

Don't know about version 1, but alpha hopefully early next year.

As far as testing, around here we put things out to everybody WAY early, so don't worry.

There is even a build up right now, very primitive, and hell to get going because of midi channel setup.

Your best bet is to follow the thread -- the link is below in my sig.

Hi Geoff, quick question,

I was mapping the nomad British NEQ-1972 (x86) for the C4 and came across a wierd one,
Basically the M-Freq and HM-Freq are a 11 point switch as using it as a SR is slow.
Anyway as an 11 point switch S11|Hm_Frq|Hm_Frq|3
It works for the first 8 points but then stops,

I've tried 9, 10, 11, 12, 14 but some are worse, nothing better tha the 6th point.

Any ideas I could try?


PS. How's the new CSI coming along?

Probably a bug in the source, sorry, gonna have to ask you to live with it, don't want to steal time from CSI, which is coming along very nicely.

The plugin code is working well enough for a pre alpha, just need to code the logic that loads the maps, that's nasty parsing stuff, not my forte, leaning on a bud whose excellent at regex, etc., but he is also very thorough, so he can be slow

Ah no worries, It's "usable" set as a single ring, and I aways have the mouse as a backup lol.

Glad CSI is shaping up, looking forward to trying it.
