New Stuff / Re: Welcome Mr. Fogle! New plug-in in the pipeline
« Last post by Variorum on April 11, 2023, 11:43:23 AM »
Hi Francois...
It's been "almost finished" for quite a while but getting it to work consistently is problematic. The main issue is the fact that it only gets small buffers (about 2 beats) when Cakewalk is playing the song.
Generating the waveforms based on an arbitrary point in time wasn't too difficult to solve, but maintaining the state of the modifier CCs, and therefore the characteristics of the waveform, when I'm only receiving small, arbitrary chunks of Midi data just doesn't seem possible.
It does work correctly when used in Offline Mode (Process/Apply Effect/MIDI Effects) because Cakewalk supplies all the Midi data for the track at once, but another problem appears if there are multiple layered clips in the track.  ::)
I've also found that the amount of Midi data being sent can overwhelm a piece of outboard Midi equipment if the playback tempo is raised too high, so I need to add some reasonably intelligent code to regulate how much data is being generated based on the current tempo.

I may finish up a few details and release it with a big asterisk saying there are some situations where it may not work as expected, or I may re-write it as a VST-Midi plugin. Just need to get back to it  :P

Great Ideal. I did a piece where I hade to do a Tremolo Guitar. I used the Shape function on the Volume, but this would have saved me a lot of hassles.
Would like to see this reacticated.

Just realised that the graphics in CSMultiCompander are random velocities. Makes a huge difference.

Issues / Re: Midi EQ Help

Argh! I hate those errors that only happen occasionally :(
It's probably a memory corruption issue caused by the MFX. I'll poke around and see if I can find the cause. If I can't, I'll get some more info from you to see if I can narrow down exactly where it's occurring.

Issues / Midi EQ Help
« Last post by marwood on June 23, 2020, 02:04:30 AM »
This only happened twice. It does not happen all the time. 
I saved an EQ setting in a song. I opened another song clicked the folder button to tried to load that EQ setting in the new song. Crashed. The EQ name  was in the pull down menu as expected.  I clicked it and I saw the EQ load (Bars were in place where they were supposed to be. The crash showed a few error boxes 3 I think then it closed EQ and Cakewalk. I tried to send the dump file zipped it was too big - Do you want it?

This midi EQ it GREAT!  I use it with Compander in all my new midi projects.  Thanks again for a great job!

Got any new projects? I'm in for testing!

GREAT!!  I can't believe you wrote this so fast!  You are amazing with your midi FX programming!

Thanks,

Nice piece! I like the light orchestration around the piano.
Glad the plugins are helping you out. I'm finishing up the EQ (had to take a break from it for a couple days). I'll implement your suggestions... shouldn't be too difficult.

Thanks. I have already finished a couple of songs with MidiEQ in combination with CSMultiCompander. They would not been nearly as good without your great midiFX!!

Im working on another version of this song with less pedal noise up front. Havenít up loaded it yet.
Here is the one you have helped me with. It would not have been near as good without your FX!!

Hey Max...
You can use the mouse wheel while hovering over the sliders (most of them, anyway) to make single digit adjustments. I'm planning to re-compile the plugins in the near future. I've made some changes/improvements in the base code over time that the earlier plugins don't have. I'll add some kind of fine control to them when I do that.

Check your messages... I need you to check this thing out. It's not quite ready for publication yet, so if you have any suggestions for it, let me know.

General Discussion / Question about plugins
« Last post by marwood on May 06, 2020, 11:52:24 PM »
Question about CSMulticompander and others.  Is there a key combination for adjusting the sliders more precisely? Many programs use CTRL to make the sliders move in smaller increments.  I have trouble with fine adjustments.

I LOVE all your plugins and especially this plugin!!!

Thanks Again,
Max Arwood
