How can I use MID learn with plugins?
The new ‘auto-show of touched parameters’ feature in 6.6 is great, and that, combined with a question from a student asking about MIDI parameter control has me excited but scratching my head.
The manual says “Ctrl Middle -click on whatever on-screen fader, plugin parameter control, button etc. you want to control” Do I need to enable something? I can link controller data to channel faders and panners as described but not plugin parameters (I tried ACE EQ, ACE Delay, and a few others from other places)
I found a way of doing it - right click on the plugin in the mixer strip, go to Controls and select the parameters I want to control, then middle-click the small faders that appear in the mixer strip. But that doesn’t sound like the ‘on-screen’ described above. It also makes the mixer strip very messy. I can’t see this method in the manual (though I may have missed something), but hopefully there’s a simpler way to do it.
(I’m on Ardour 6.5 and also just tried on 6.6, OS X 10.15.7)
