communication with reaktor as plug /OSC


    Jan 04 2008 | 6:48 pm
    hi
    i am using Reaktor as a plug-in inside max - mostly for the filters
    (using the vst~ object)
    I would like to send the cutoff freq (for exemple) as real numbers (I
    mean the actual freq, in Hz) not as a value between 0. & 1. as the
    usual vst controllers need.
    don't know how to do it - i thought about using OSC.... maybe
    is a communication with a plug in possible via OSC??? any other idea???
    many thanks
    kasper

      Unfortunately I do not think you can send exact values through the VST
      interface. OSC would be an option but the Reaktors OSC implementation still
      does not work when it is loaded as a VST. I think your only option would be
      to have Reaktor running in the background.

      All vst~ parameters map into some range. If you can determine the range in
      Reaktor and use a scale min max 0. 1. You may accomplish what you want.
      There may be some issues with the curve however.

      conference, pocket-film competition, and various workshops - www.re-new.dk
      We would very much like you to submit digital art-work and paper
      proposals for presentation, and of course join in, if you should happen
      to be nearby in the period.
      --The Festival will include app. 30 presentation opportunities for
      digital art in the areas of music, video, performance, and installations
      as well as any cross-breeds of these. A 5x12x1 meter AV-monolith will be
      set up on Copenhagen City Square to submit proposals for, and further
      performances and screening will take place ao. at an Omnimax Theatre and
      at the public swimming-pool 'The Elipse', as well as various clubs,

      anonymous and jury evaluated.
      Submission deadline is February 17, 2008.
      --The Conference is joint CMMR (Computer Music Modelling and Retrieval)
      and NTSMB (Network for Cross-Disciplinary Studies of Music and Meaning).
      Paper topics are in the areas of auditory perception and cognition; user
      interfaces for music; philosophy, culture and psychology;
      infrastructures for music; indexing and retrieval of music; structuring
      of music data; collaboration on music; analysis, recognition,
      comparison, classification, and modelling of music; mining and
      visualizing music; synthesis and/or composition of music; performance of
      music; and artificial intelligence/life for music. Paper review is
      blinded, and accepted paper are printed in Springer Verlag's 'Lecture
      Notes on Computer Science' series. Submission are made at
      www.re-new.dk/index.php?pid=6 where details of topics, jury, and
