I’ll try to make you consider two features, inspired by Cubase, to understand what you think about the possibility of bringing them into the VST Live environment.
The first could be the equivalent of Chase Events which concerns midi events: this would clearly be useful in the case of midi tracks that act as automation tracks.
The second is the equivalent of the External Effects which instead concerns the flow of the signal: it is a possibility that is offered by Cubase which I believe can certainly be useful also in VST Live.
At the time, this is too complex. But you can acheive that by routing, using Stacks, i.e. create Out Channel “Fx Send”, send there to your external device, create (possibly global) Stack receiving from external fx.
I confirm that what you suggest in terms of routing works perfectly (I’ve already had the opportunity to implement it), but, obviously, the solution offered by Cubase to manage external effects is more practical and immediate: I hope it can be introduced in VST Live in the future.
after using midi tracks based on Midi CC messages, as an alternative to automation tracks, I realized during the band’s rehearsals how important it is to have chase events and, for this reason, I resumed this post.
Is there any news on the topic?
Is there any hope that this functionality can be introduced on midi tracks soon?
You are correct, we will add the missing MIDI messages to the chase function. We were a bit in a rush to get it out for this version.
Configuring seems a bit of a stretch, always trying to avoid cluttering with too many options…when would it make sense to not chase anything that changes status during play?
Under normal conditions I would say that avoiding the chase events never makes sense, but in the past I have come across in the Cubase context in devices that “suffered” the multiple messages that arrived due to the chase events.
This is why I hypothesized a custom management of if and what to chase.
