We just pushed a new plugin to beta, part of the MOD CV plugins collection.
This new one translates button actions to various CV signals, allowing specific actions to be used as CV triggers.
You have single press, long press and double press CV outputs, which will have 0v by default and 10v when active. These CV outputs are activated by clicking (and/or holding) the plugin’s single parameter.
This plugin also makes use of the new “HMI Widgets” API, allowing you to customize the text that appears on the device display (for Dwarf on >= v1.11 and Duo X >= v1.12)
For now plugin is in beta, we want to give it some testing time and get feedback before pushing it to the stable side.
So yeah, comments / feedback is very much welcome!
This is could make looping without an auxiliary MIDI pedal a lot better. Probably just need to practice aligning one’s reflexes with where the event trigger actually occurs on double-press and long press.
I noticed that the popup only appears if I assign the button to a Footswitch. if I use a MIDI, a CV or the MOD UI to controls the plugin, it doesn’t shows the popup on screen.
It is a lv2-hmi.h/HMI restriction or a plugin limitation?
In my case: I’m using the Chocolate MIDI to controls some plugins on/off state. But, unfortunately, it doesn’t have a way to give me a feedback (it doesn’t have Footswitches LEDs like Dwarf has and its 7 segments display isn’t configurable).
My idea was using this new plugin to give me a feedback.
I think this is quite an interesting use case! We could have an extra control “long-press mode” which toggles between latching <-> momentary
that’s correct, its currently not possible to assign CV signals to lists and triggers. For the Looperlative in specific, It already uses double and long presses internally, so I’m not too sure how these 2 plugins would mix.
a small oversight, I guess it makes the most sense for the led to stay on as long as the popup, I’ll tweak this soon
This is currently indeed restricted. Before the 1.12RC’s plugins could only change actuator fields displayed by the HMI (name, value, LED etc.) so hmi-widgets could only be used on an HMI assignment. We have some more improvements in mind for the hmi-widgets, so Ill add this to that list!
Perhaps it would even be better to have a “notification” plugin, which handles this specific use case.
Loving this plugin! Makes my crazy cc toggle to note toggle mess of plugins for momentary CC pedals unnecessary! Plus now those momentary cc stomp pedal switches can do triple duty with single/long and double presses!
My only request is that it appears that the output high/low state isn’t saved with the pedalboard/snapshot. Therefore, when I save a pedalboard or snapshot with the reverb plugin turned on, when I recall that pedalboard or snapshot, the reverb will always be in the off position, making snapshots useless!
Did some testing with this setup at band practice last night and noticed there’s a slight lag when using single press to turn fx on/off. This is obviously because the plugin is “listening” to make sure the press wasn’t a long press or the first half of a double press.
It’s not terrible but I had hopes that this would finally be THE solution for toggling a momentary MIDI CC button and with the lag it doesn’t seem like it is.
Yes, the CV signal is send when you release the switch. It could have been right on press but it would put on the effect assigned for short press the put it off when long press is detected… a bit strange I think.
perhaps another “trigger” mode can be added? so it does not wait for the press release.
it should be separate, as there can be a use case for having distinct signals for single/long/double press events. if single press event triggers every time, it is not very nice.
but if there is a separate, dedicated signal for “trigger a cv pulse as fast as possible” mode, I think that covers all cases then.
Updated to the latest and plugin state still seems to be not saving with snapshots, but it IS saving with pedalboards. Can we get snapshots, too?
Also, any chance of getting an immediate mode on single press like @falkTX was suggesting?
Thank you so much for listening to our requests and working so hard to improve this platform. I know we keep asking for more and more, but I do want to make sure you know how grateful I am for your hard work and this badass platform you’re developing!
