Hey everybody, always appreciating this awesome software and the support the community gives!
I’ve seen in places that most everything in the gui is supposedly controllable but I wanted to ask if the ‘bypass’ button for plugins is directly controllable?
I’m guessing the answer might be osc (I know rgareus has this nice workaround for midi to control osc parameters, etc), but if that’s the answer I still wasn’t sure which osc command would control it.
I’m guessing it might be found by querying osc messages, but couldn’t find any specific documentation in the manual on the forums when it came to the bypass button. Very simple application, I want to be able to turn on and off effects from a midi controller, etc.
I’m guessing I’ll probably figure this out at some point if an solution isn’t posted but I wanted to make sure others who may have the same question can find the answer here too, so I’ll make sure to follow up either way!
Thanks in advance for any feedback
p.s. Very pleased with how ardour has been running on my the new raspi 4 too, for the record.
Ah yeah I think that’s the one, I’ll double check when I have a moment
Not sure what you mean by ‘clickless’, cause I’m talking about the green button that goes dark (and bypasses the plugin) when you click it off, and enables/turns on/goes green again when you click it again
Yes you are discussing the same thing I believe. And what he means by clickless is that by bypassing the plugin it could cause an audible ‘click’ in the audio because there is not anything to prevent that from happening when you bypass/re-enable.
That is the activate button LED. Using that in the middle of a mix or recording could result in a click or pop and because there is no latency compensation, the audio that is by passed may be shifted in time as well. Depending on the plugin the change in time may be related to the buffer size in use and so those of us that use a different buffer size for recording and mixing, the timing would be affected differently in each of these cases. Some plugins have their own bypass that is clickless and that would be the better way of bypassing.
