control surfaces and REAPER

So the control surface support for the Behringer BCF2000 was easy to do, now I'm doing modes for HUI and Mackie Control (using the BCF2k in emulation modes for it for testing).. if anybody has any documentation for HUI/Mackie MIDI protocols it would be helpful, for now I get to do lots of sniffing of the protocols and whatnot, which is less than ideal...

In general it works really well, and I'm very impressed with the quality of the $200 BCF. If any other manufacturers want to send me units, it would help too, haha.

I'll probably post 0.45 by monday or so which will have support for surfaces.. and maybe a few other things (depending on how much time I make to do them).. ogg (and maybe lame) encoding is a big one I'm planning on doing soon. Does lame_enc.dll support multiple simultaneous encodes yet? last I checked it did internally, though the bladeenc api didn't support it...

The biggest thing I'm planning now, though, and almost have figured out, is the automation recording, so you can use sliders and/or control surfaces to record envelopes. The code for this will be relatively straightforward, the UI for how to present it in a sensible way is the most difficult, I think. That and I gotta do DX/VST/JS parameter envelopes, too.

Anyway. Brennan and I saw that crazy (in an amazingly good way) 11 string bass guy at Guitar Center last night. I am still totally in awe.

aww, please dont skin controls, let the os handle the looks of your marvelous app.

I agree with you, except the win32 trackbar is a pain in the ass, it's not about the skin, it's about the functionality.
