i need a tipp to bring values in midi cc-format into a vst ~ object, to control a vst-synth.

does somebody have an example-patch?

Send the message [midievent 176 $1 $2] where $1 is the cc number and $2 the value.

thank you very much! Thats it…

one more question: whats with pitchbend? Normal Midi-Messages are Values between 0 – 127…

The Range of Pitchbend is higher, so: how to format this and how to scale?

The pitchbend message is [midievent 224 $1 $2] with $1=MSB and $2=LSB.

MSB and LSB have range 0-127, and the real pitchbend value is calculated as MSB*128+LSB.

Hi,

so i tried to send midi-CC-Data to a VST-synth in the Max VST~-object…

But the implemented VST-Device doesnt´react on the incomming Data.. What do i wrong?

The patch looks ok. Check the documentation of your synth which CC data it understands.

I wants to control Native Instruments FM8 Synthesizer. It seems, that nothing reaches the VST-Plugin…

any idea?
