Hello fellow Cantabilers,
I am having a hard time setting up my FCB1010 to toggle VST automation parameters.
For some background: in Cantabile, you can specify a VST automation parameter as the target of a binding. Many automation parameters are binary (on/off). For example, bx_greenscreamer has an automation parameter called “Bypass.”
What I am trying to do is setup my FCB1010 pedal board to toggle this parameter (and others like it), but there doesn’t appear to be a way to do this. To be clear, by “toggle” I mean “set the parameter to the opposite value it is now.” If I set the binding event to Controller (Button) or Controller (No Edge Button), I can specify a series of values that are sent one at a time with each button press. Setting this field to (1.0, 0.0) gets close, but it doesn’t take into account the current value of the parameter. It just sets it to 1 on 1st press, 0 on 2nd press, 1 on 3rd press, etc. It can easily get out of sync with the actual parameter value due to song or state changes.
Am I missing something? If not, it would be great if Cantabile offered a way to toggle binary automation parameters as targets of bindings. It seems to recognize these parameters as binary because if you open up the plugin parameter list, it shows bypass as having only two possible values - Off or On.
