Default Parameter modulation/MIDI link options for Input FX

REAPER has plenty of options of parameter modulation/MIDI link for FX. I would like to request for the same options to be available for Input FX, which currently has MIDI/OSC learn only.

Some background info:

I often record incoming audio processed via plugins with some of the parameters being controlled in realtime. In order to use the parameter modulation/MIDI link options, I use a normal FX chain instead of Input FX and record the output of the track. I also put the track in another folder track to separate it from the plugins that I donít want to print, so I can tweak them later.

The workaround above works, but it increases the track count. and I really wish there were those options available for Input FX in the first place, which will simplify the project and would give Input FX its full potential.

I also tried ReaLearn to achieve the same thing, but stopped using it after several crashes seemingly caused by the plugin.

As there is no Midi at the location of an (audio) input Effect, it would need to fetch messages from a Reaper Midi bus.

Good point. Maybe we could use the MIDI signals routed to the track?

Seemingly not with input effects.

If you really need to, as a workaround, you can use the MidiToReaControlPath VST plugin to route certain Midi messages from some track into the guts of Reaper, and then you can use "Learn" with your input effect to get hold of them.

Maybe I'm being stupid here, but if the input FX can already be midi learned with midi /osc isn't it just a matter of extending the functionality? Because you couldn't midi learn an input fx if midi wasn't getting to it somehow.

Ok, now someone explain I'm stupid. It's ok, I can take it lol.

The Source of "Learn" is the Reaper Control Path, while the FR is about using Midi messages from a track. ("parameter modulation/MIDI link")

Maybe itís worth mentioning that Parameter modulation/MIDI link is not only about regular MIDI CC, but also audio signal control, LFO, modulating other modulators, and 14-bit CC. The audio signal control would interest some of those who want to integrate their modular synths, maybe in combination with ReaRack3.

As for using MIDI (and audio) signals routed from other tracks, I donít know how technically difficult it is, but I suppose thatís for the devs to determine whether it can be implemented or not...
