I’m just re-thinking how I use Cantabile, as I move from v2 to v3, and I started wondering how people handle volume settings/control for plugins.
The most visible way is to have rack/plugin gains set for each song state, but then there’s also the MIDI CC7 level which is (generally) applied by the plugin itself (sometimes stored in its patch data, sometimes not). If you generally use rack/plugin gains, do you also use MIDI CC7 messages to set the plugin’s MIDI volume? Do you explicitly set it with a controller message and then just use Cantabile’s gain control? Do you adjust the plugin’s internal volume at the patch level, store it within the patch, and then just forget about MIDI CC7 control? If you control volumes dynamically from your controller keyboard, do you use MIDI CC7 on the plugin, or do you use a binding to control the rack/plugin gain?
Just wondering what everyone’s doing, and if there’s a best practice here.
