Anyone able to help with Ardour 7.2 and DecentSampler VST3 on a Debian system?
I’m getting some great results. And the DS files are really straightforward to edit, add midi control of parameters etc.
How can I get the Ardour interface to recognise the Midi CC assignments in a DecentSampler instrument?
So for example;
I’ve assigned cc104 to control attack time for a DS instrument. There’s a knob in the UI that controls the same parameter.
When I click the Automation button in the relevant Ardour track it allows me to open the lanes of any CC number from 1 to 128. But it doesn’t show the assignments of those CC numbers, just what the General Midi assignments are. So 104 is just “undefined.”
When I open the lane for CC104 I can draw values in. But on playback the slider doesn’t move to show that those values are being recognised. However I can hear that they are being transmitted and, if I have the DS UI open, I can see the relevant knob moving as it should.
Do I need some extra information to get the communication a bit more seamless? The software instrument equivalent of a midnam file maybe?
In the track in Ardour Editor the defaults in the menus below the slider are “Generic” and “General MIDI.”
When I use a SFZ instrument in sfizz (LV2) there’s only a single menu and it says “Plugin Provided.” In that situation the only CC lanes you can access are those where a CC assignment been written into the SFZ file. It makes it much easier to find your way around.
Thanks for any help you can give.
