Using Multislider to control specific parameters in vst~


Aug 05 2011 | 6:23 pm

Hello,

I am attempting to use single sliders in a multislider to control specific parameters in vst~.
I tried using the message list $1 $2, mapping the index to the first inlet and the value to the second, but when moving a slider, it will set the number of parameters in vst~ to 0.

Does anyone know a solution to this problem?

To help your erstwhile helpers, please post the patch in question (select all, chose copy compressed from max menu, paste compressed patch into message in forum…make sure it’s copy COMPRESSED), since it is not at all clear how you are connecting the messages you generate to the vst~, or how you…well, anything? easier to comment when we see how you are trying to do it.

should do the trick, and some comments. your list logic wasn’t right, you need to store any list longer than one element to get to the $2 $3 etc. also you can use [listfunnel] to send all the multislider data easily.

hope it works, I don’t have a vst~ here to check…

In case you’re interested, I have an abstraction (z.vst) that does this, as well as allows interpolation between vst settings via pattr. Auto-updates multislider to correct number of sliders when vst is loaded, etc.
