Re: TEC BC2 produces abrupt threshold

I have no doubt it requires a tremendous amount of work (both programming and possibly some hardware re-design and implementation), because it has to be an Industry Wide implementation. Happily the situation is not that bad. The high resolution Midi standard is very simple and it is well defined si...

Is there a quick fix for these instruments ?
I will try to get something going in the weekend. But this will be a Midi filter done as a JSFX pluging, and hence only run in Reaper.

Re: TEC BC2 produces abrupt threshold

Thanks for further explanations. In fact I don't intend to design a Wind Controller. I am just trying to find out how it (a good one, supposedly such as the EWI) works, mainly if and how it uses Note-On and/or Note-off velocity to provide relevant information to the sound engine. Maybe there is a pa...

Re: TEC BC2 produces abrupt threshold

Hi Dan, while I am happy to see you "satisfied 98 %", I am not really happy with the workaround with just decreasing volume for very soft sound instead of really using the physical model to actually generate a soft waveform (which is obviously able to do so, as with a Wind Controller it works like e...

Re: TEC BC2 produces abrupt threshold

BTW.: AFAIK, (other than my old WX7) EWI uses capacitive sensors rather than mechanical switches for fingering, so technically, it could detect the finger movement speed. Hence it would be able to send this information to SWAM and have same be used for portamento speed control. So in the EWI there a...

Re: TEC BC2 produces abrupt threshold

1) SWAM receives MIDI values. MIDI values are very limited, 127: the derivative is calculated on the first 7 steps. This is exactly what I supposed. 2) The Wind Controller generates the Note-on / Note-off itself. It measures an electrical signal that has maybe 65535 resolution points. It can comput...

Re: TEC BC2 produces abrupt threshold

Hi Emanuele, thanks for listening ! From our previous discussions, I did already know most of what you point out here nice and clear. But I fail to see (and I never did such test) how (like Dan states) the issue is not triggered when using a Wind controller instead of a Breath controller. I understa...

Re: TEC BC2 produces abrupt threshold

Dan, To make a sound, the SM instruments (as well SWAM as Kontakt) need to get a "Note-On" event defining the note to be played and at least one "Expression" event defining the "sound power". When using the TEC and a keyboard, these events are independent . "Expression" is sent by the TEC (a new eve...

Re: TEC BC2 produces abrupt threshold

Hi Dan. I also use SWAM Flute with the TEC BBC v2. I am also practicing playing Cello with the BBCv2. I use these controller assignments: - Breath pressure -> "Expression" - Bite -> Bow pressure - Key after touch -> Vibrato depth - Head tilt left/right -> Vibrato speed slow/fast - Head nod l up/down...

Now, if a plugin has more than 32 parameters, it doesn't populate the parameter list at all.
Seems extremely silly :( Why do they not just provide additional pages with the parameter list lines ?
