The answer to your impasse may be that you are not identifying which CC parameters are used by your synths. As I think I said, most use CC 74 and 71 for ‘Cutoff’ and ‘Resonance,’ respectively. But if some don’t, then you will not be able to control that parameter in unison with the others.
Try and just set up one with the quick control using the documented CC parameters for the synth on one track. If you get that working right, then you can start chaining using the virtual cables.
Thank you for all of that. I’m about to give you a handfull, and I’m sorry ahead of time.
The parameter I want to automate is not included in the CC parameters for the synth. I see 127 cc parameters under “all cc” within quick controls, and there are at least 3 times that amount under Zebra’s synth parameters. The parameter i want to automate in unison (called “mod depth 2”) is quite specified, thus, it was not included in the CC parameters for the synth.
To assign “mod depth 2” to a CC control, I went to device setup and created a generic remote by clicking on the + sign in the upper left hand corner. While editing the generic remote i was able to assign “mod depth 2” to address 74 (which is the CC#) and address 74 corresponds to knob 1 on my midi controller. While in here I figured i would see if I could get parameters to adjust in unison. I added another “mod depth 2” parameter from a second synth and assigned it to the same CC# and knob, however, this did not work for some reason, as only one of the “mod depth 2’s” adjusted with knob 1. I ditched that plan and decided to see if I can now assign “mod depth 2” to the quick control slot #1 via CC# (slot #1 linked with knob 1 as well). I added CC 74 to the quick control, which is the CC# I assigned “mod depth 2” to within the generic remote I created. The problem is, when I move the quick control slider, “mod depth 2” does not adjust and vic versa . Both the quick control slider AND “mod depth 2” adjust at the turn of knob 1 though.
After that failed, I had hoped midi learn would work. But when I click midi learn on a parameter within one VST instrument, that same parameter will automate on ALL VST instruments that are the same VST instrument as the one I clicked midi learn on. I don’t want this, as I do not wish to modify that parameter on some of the synths I have loaded. This next part will be hard to explain. Of course I could disable the record/monitor buttons on the vst instruments I do not wish to control that parameter on, but I need to be able to adjust MULTIPLE groups of the same type of parameter amongst separate instances of a specific VST Instrument (HUH?).
Let me give an example.
I have VST instrument #1, #2, #3, #4, and I have filters F1, F2, F3, and F4 that correspond to the VST instrument numbers respectively. All of the VST instruments are duplicates of the same VST instrument (so when I assign F1 to a knob through the midi learn command, F2, F3, and F4 will also adjust if the record enable is selected on all of the VSTi’s). However, I need to assign F1 & F2 to knob 1 and F3 & F4 to knob 2. But this is not possible because as soon as I assign a different knob to the other two filters, ALL of the filters are reassigned to that different knob.
