TOPIC: Performance View for Reaper

Performance View for Reaper 1 month 1 week 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

Keep up the good work! :thumbs up:

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!

I've borrowed an old iPad 2 to have a look at some of the apps which could display the computer's screen on the iPad. These are commonly remote desktop apps, but there are others that are more specialised for artists to use Photoshop etc on the iPad and have good touch control. I think some of these use the local wifi network.

Astropad was one of these and had a free version for iPhone. It worked well but I wasn't prepared to pay for the iPad version just to try it out.

In the photo below I am using the app Splashtop. The personal version is free for devices on the same local network, which is all that's needed. It is surprisingly good! Great image quality and very little lag. I had no issues moving the amp controls or tap+hold to bring up the right click menus on the rack fx. Even showing the S-gear tuner was very responsive.

My app was very useable on the iPad, but I'd ideally need to increase the size of a few areas to make it easier.

In the bottom left corner is the arrow keys which you can overlay on the screen. As my app responds to these to change presets and snapshots, it's a helpful option.
