Monitoring Snap state
« on: December 08, 2018, 02:26:30 AM »
Hi there,

I'm stucking again with some monitoring functions. 

The first one is the Offset mode. But i realized with the original VS-700 surface, that Cakelab don't send a feedback message anymore. The button has a LED, but i'ts useless since a prior version of SONAR.

But now i'm stucking with the Snap button. "Monitor parameter value" didn't work. I think, i have to do a workaround, to get it to work and show the correct state. Can you give me a hind.

I know, that i have sometimes dumb questions, but i go the learning by doing way. (As i said...just tinkering.) ;)

Best regards

Cakewalk does not support feedback for Snap.

Sonar/CWBL must send some kind of message for the snap on/off state. With the regular VS-700 surface plugin it indicates if snap is on or off. The LED of that button reacts on the same CC as the button sends, but the input message to the surface plugin might be a different one, which i couldn't figure out yet. MIDIOX just tells me that the CC is send, when i switch in CWBL. But MIDIOX detects behind the surface plugin.

Can you check that regular VS-700 is really getting that LED from Sonar? Just change it in Sonar with mouse and check it is automatically changed on VS-700.
If that is the case, I will re-check VS-700 source code. So far I have found that it change the setting, with command, but I have not found the feedback section for it.
So I have assumed it does not exist, but I could overlook something.

Yes, it definitely reacts, when you switch the on/off state in Sonar.  I've made a video of it. Here you can see it.

Ok, you have proved me wrong  :)
I will find what they use and implement that in AZ Controller.

Ok. I have found what they use... They have an extra API class which return Snap state (and only snap state...). Will implement that next days.
