I messed around with scripting but couldn't see how to expand/collapse track folders in the mixer via Reascript API functions, and the only action is the one I mentioned, which is no good because it's a toggle.

Mixer: Show/hide children of selected tracks 41665

If I've missed something...

Is the new config layout any help with folder navigation?

Edit: Think I found the answer, fancy use of reaper.SetTrackStateChunk

In lieu of actual folder mode, I have two buttons mapped to these two actions that are working pretty well for me:

- Mixer: show/hide children of selected tracks.

- Mixer: Toggle show tracks in [all] folders in mixer

Great start!
Now, just change ALT to CTRL in the axt

What a can of worms you just opened my friend

Thank goodness everyone has a Shift key, because it goes to hell rapidly after that.

Mac has a Command key which generally operates like a Control key on a PC.

Mac also has a Control key which does not generally operate like a Control key on a PC.

The MCU has a button named Option and another button named Alt.

Mac has ONE KEY with 2 names -- yup - Alt AND Option.

So your point is well taken, we should use Shift first, then Control/Command second, and descend into hell after that -- man who would have thought cross-platform compatibility would get caught up in something seemingly as trivial as this

Now I understand why, when I import my Windows Reaper Keyboard Shortcuts into the Mac version, all my Ctrl+SomeKey combos get turned into Cmd+SomeKey combos.

Drives me nuts.

Hmmm...

.axt/.fxt was always an artificial distinction, made even more so by the new Zone concept.

Matter if fact, that's what both files are now, Zone files.

The FX ones just happen to live in an fxt folder -- we should probably rename the "fxt" folder to "FX".

Let's change all the .axt/.fxt files to .zon for Zone.

Nope. Good luck with the build, looking forward to testing the results

I went ahead and wrote something for this. I do appreciate you'll probably want to build it in to CSI, so there's no dependency on any scripts, but I have been meaning to get into ReaScript, and it was fun

First ever ReaScript, first time working with Lua, so comments and criticisms very welcome.

https://stash.reaper.fm/v/35409/csi_folder_mode.lua

Geoff, I tried your double mapping and it didn't work. I managed to trial the script via CSI by temporarily overwriting the select action, but when adding the Hold+ action it does nothing doing a long press. In my case I have:

Code:
Select1 TrackUniqueSelect
Hold+Select1 Reaper _RSf8b8da7cf3cd4dee5aa27f72a0d279fcae18dc71
Edit: on the BCF, Pan (90 2A) isn't mapped, so I am using it with that for now and it's working for me (requires you to select the folder track first, so long press would be good to work out).

It's supposed to support nested drill down and step back, retaining state on step back, but I there are a couple of bugs to work out with it at this stage (v0.1)

You know, there was a really good reason I had for requesting Ctrl instead of Alt, but I cannot remember it at all now! sorry for the troubles dude!

In 2 hours I have not managed to install the script, the instructions are very poor.

Installation
Find the Reaper resource path by running the Reaper Action: Show REAPER resource path in
finder (or Windows equivalent).
Put the CSI folder in the Reaper resource path.
Mac:
Put the dylib in the folder named UserPlugins in the Reaper resource path.
or
PC:
Put the dll in - Program Files \ Reaper 4 (x64) \ Plugins \ for 64 bit or the equivalent for 32 bit.

Thanks. Further testing, actually Hold+Button doesn't seem to work as expected even by itself.

If I do Hold+Pan, it behaves the exact same way as Pan, i.e. no delay.

Any chance you could give some feedback on this? I got the impression you thought this was done and working

Yeah, we put together a trial a while back, but it could have easily become broken since then.

Just about to begin a major redesign so Hold will get fixed this cycle, however long that is

If you downloaded the latest released Feb 2019, then I believe you need 5.965. I had the same issue, then had an issue upgrading to 5.965, so I'm not yet there.

You may want to wait a bit until a new release which will be very different again.

Good news thanks for the update. I'm really looking forward to all the other stuff around zones and also modifiers. Modifiers and holds will really open up surfaces like the BCF with limited buttons.

I don't like the notion of the Channel Zone being defined within the Entree Zone.

What if you wanted to define another Zone within Channel ?

Let's add CompositeZone.

CompositeZone Track Buttons Channels -- Zone named Track composed of Buttons Zone and Channels Zone.

Code:
CompositeZone Track Buttons Channels

This is more semantically correct.

The initial Zone (Track) is composed of the Buttons Zone and the Channels Zone.

This makes more sense.

The buttons zone contains widgets which appear on the surface only once, the channel zone contains widgets which repeat in a pattern (in this instance the pattern takes the channel form).

I guess the buttons zone never navigates? no banking, drilling etc

True, but more importantly for me, the Buttons Zone does not contain the Channels Zone as was implied by the earlier syntax.

Of course, nor does the Channels Zone contain the ButtonsZone, they are both part of the larger CompositeZone.

Only because it doesn't have a Navigator.

Just to further illustrate, someone might want to separate out the MCU assignments section to a new navigable Zone, but still enclosed within the initial Zone (Home).

The Asssigment Navigator might treat all of it's Widgets as Radio Buttons -- makes semantic sense here:

Code:
CompositeZone Home Assignments Buttons Channels

Zone Assignments
Navigator  RadioButton
Track      TrackAssignmentAction
Send       SendAssignmentAction
Pan        PanAssignmentAction
Plugin     PluginAssignmentAction
EQ         EQAssignmentAction

This allows us to create very modular Zone definitions that can be composed into larger logical units.

32 or 64 bit ?

Which dll did you use ?

Where did you put the dll ? -- full path please.

Where did you put CSI folder ? -- full path please.

If all that fails you might have to install the C++ 2017 runtime package.

I noticed earlier you said the instructions were poor, this is pre alpha software and not nearly ready for release, it should never be used for anything other than testing at this point.

Is this what you are looking for ?

What hardware surfaces do you have ?

Yeah, just started coding, looks like it will be MUCH simpler, a sure sign the design is going in the right direction

Default automation read mode - lock fader movement

hey guys,
It would be nice if we could not move a volume automated fader in read mode as the movement has no effect. So it would be nice if the fader got back to its position after releasing it.

hi Geoff, I just had an idea and wanted to bring it up before I forget.

I have the ProX and it has the 2nd screen on the bottom. Currently it just shows a channel # that doesn't correspond to anything, but is there a way we can put the channels actual RMS level there?

Just a thought, no biggie either way at the moment

You mean instead of the current touch controlled version of volume level, or by RMS do you mean metering ?

If you look at the current .axt file, two lines stand out, they're more complex than the rest:

DisplayLower1 TrackTouchControlled TrackPanDisplay TrackVolumeDisplay

Rotary1 TrackCycle RotaryPush1 "TrackPan 0" "TrackPanWidth 1"

If you think about it, these are really:

Code:
Zone TrackTouchControlledDisplay1-8 DisplayLower1-8
Navigator TrackTouchControlled
TrackPanDisplay 
TrackVolumeDisplay
ZoneEnd

Zone TrackCyclePanWidth1-8 Rotary1-8
Navigator TrackCycle RotaryPush1-8
TrackPan 0
TrackPanWidth 1
ZoneEnd

Really like where this new design is heading

[Edit] Actually these are Zones that contain Actions -- aka ActionZones -- the others might more properly be called WidgetZones, but let's leave them Zones for now.

If we do that then we could define ActionZones within Zones, and thereby avoid having to make 3 Zones ( ChannelsWithoutPanAndTouch, TrackCyclePanWidth , TrackTouchControlledDisplay ) + a CompositeZone (Channels) to contain them:

Code:
CompositeZone Home  Buttons Channels
Zone Buttons
        ChannelLeft TrackBank -1
	ChannelRight TrackBank 1
	BankLeft TrackBank -8
	BankRight TrackBank 8

I'm pretty sure that to access the ProX bottom display will need a new, bespoke, piece of underlying code. At the moment we only have MCUDisplayUpper and MCUDisplayLower to access displays on an MCU type unit.

I'm not quite sure why Icon added that lower display to the unit, given that (please correct me if i'm wrong) it isn't supported by either the Mackie or HUI protocols, meaning it will have to be directly supported by DAW software in order to be useful.

Indeed, it is weird to have it. It just says Ch 1 - 16, and those never change, doesn't make any sense at all.

I had gotten some of the info from Icon and gave to Geoff to see if he could include, but we didn't think of anything useful at the time to do with it. There are dim controls, so I have them dimmed all the way down, looks like it's not even there.

Geoff, to answer your question, i wouldn't want to replace the current touch volume on the UPper display, just wondered if there was a way to get other values from Reaper, such as RMS or peak hold values, that could be useful for the 2nd display.

Hi Folks,

here my solution for CSI and X-Touch One (XT1)

My modified CSI (from February 11, 2019 at 04:29 PM)

It rocks for my workflow (Compose, Arrange and Mixing)

A little demonstration:

best regards

Sorry for the bad video and my bad english. Believe me, my German is better ;-)))

Thanks for reminding me, I'll include a widget for that lower row next build, it's very close to the existing MCU, just a hex value or two that are different.

As for what to display, sure, whatever you need, should be easy to build an Action for... famous last words
