Midi control of mixer desk


Q: Can I control the volume of a VSTi through midi? I’ve just recorded a piece where I would like the drone tones to fade in and out in the style of Stars of the Lid. Other than re-record the drones and have long attack and release times, I can’t figure out how to achieve the effect of volume being an instrument. Any thoughts?

Thanks in advance,

Hi and welcome,

Most of VSTis Volume can be controlled by standard MIDI CC7 (Volume). Or you can Control the fader directly by using Generic Remote Device (please, search the forum, lots of info here already).
