TOPIC: Performance View for Reaper

Performance View for Reaper 4 days 23 hours ago #18168

This is still a work in progress, but I wanted to show a few screenshots of how it's coming along. And sorry to those who expressed an interest earlier this year in trying out the snapshots version - I took a bit of a tangent with these changes...

First up, I've re-arranged the layout as I wanted to move the snapshots to the top of the window, to highlight them more, and to give them more space (for the snapshot names).
I've also moved away from showing the inactive second amp, and instead show a user-selectable set of controls (not done yet). At this stage they just show the extra amp controls for the active amp (which will be the default), but the idea is that you will be able to add whatever extra parameters you want from the preset e.g. reverb mix, delay mix.

I also found a way to add some peak meters (for the input signal and output). I haven't done the track level meter yet. I had the idea for this after figuring out some basic 'JS' plugins for my Behringer X-TOuch Mini I posted about earlier. These have a bit of a CPU hit as they mean the UI has to constantly refresh. But my ancient XP system can handle it, so should be fine for most.

It has a menubar at the top (hidden by default) which has some snapshot and other options useful during editing. Right-clicking on the snapshots also givews you a few options.

Clicking on the preset name at the top of the window will display a fullscreen preset selector. You can navigate this with the keyboard, mouse or mouse-wheel/trackpad.

Some keyboard controls: right/left arrows change the snapshots. Numbers 1-5 directly select the snapshot. Up/down arrows change the presets. Spacebar brings up the preset window/selector.

Mouse/trackpad: all the amp controls and sliders can be changed using the mouse-wheel or trackpad when the mouse is over them. Right clicking an amp control will allow you to manually enter the value. Double-clicking will set them to 5/middle.


That's about it. The only other thing that I came across was I used the VST3 version on a Mac recently, and it looked like this exposed the preset names. If so, I will look at using this - but it would be Mac only unless Mike adds the VST3 version for Windows also.

Nice developments Kierank! The full screen preset browser looks excellent.

The VST3 does support the program list interface. I'm looking at add VST3 to Windows in v2.9.

If you have any specific questions about S-GEAR internals you are welcome to drop me an email.

Cheers,
Mike

Thanks everyone! I will definitely be sharing the updated version. I want to look into the VST3 version a bit more in order to grab the preset names from S-Gear. And it's great that Mike will be making this available for Windows with v2.9!
