Glad it made sense, @Bparticle - I always worry about that when I make a video. The gain on a linear VCA is not currently voltage controllable, and the custom unit controls’ value ranges are currently hard-coded (i.e. a linear control always has a range of -5 to +5). So I’m not sure there’s a way to make a “# of steps” parameter, at least as of v 0.3.16, or if you did it would be limited (1-5). Maybe the middleware would allow more flexibility here? We’ll see soon!
Yep, might be an interesting one to try, @kel! You know, I really like the visual programming language. It feels more akin to patching a modular synth than it does programming. So I’m not sure where the middleware’s “sweet spot” will be for me.
Certainly for things that require connections that are impossible to make due to the UI patching constraints.
Probably for things where I’m currently using a lot of custom unit controls that I’d prefer to be hidden once finished.
Quite possibly in the scenario described above, e.g. if you can take more control over parameter ranges.
And certainly for something huge like Evil Twin where it’s just so many layers that navigating it becomes difficult.
It’ll be interesting to see what unfolds next!
