What's the best way to do this?

Post by twinstates » Tue Nov 18, 2014 8:04 pm

Hello, thanks in advance for anyone that can help here:

I have a vst plugin that can use OSC to communicate with live.

I'd like to be able to send OSC signals - lfo,s envelopes, gates etc to . instrument and effect parameters of AU or VST instruments or fx.

So, an example of this might be sending controller type data to a native instruments sytnh, lfo combined with envelope

Another example might be sending data to a rack parameter where i have linked a number of parameters together for modulation.

a final example might be sending data to send or volume faders either on a channel or on the sends themselves.

I am pretty sure that OSC is the baby for this - not sure if it works if the osc signal is being created inside the device tho - assuming it should..

I am a bit stuck here as not a m4l user very often, so don't know the devices / where to get the right stuff, figured I'd ask as well as trying to figure it out as the bright minds on the ableton forum usually have a way of fixing things I am trying to work out :)

Cheers

maybe you want to try a loopback program like MIDI yoke or loopbe? I haven't worked with OSC before but maybe you can use something like that to route the OSC out of your VST and into Ableton for mapping.

Use a send object to send osc data to other patches with receive patches and osc filtering. Or use the api to control devices directly
