Default HowTo: Convert MIDI CC messages to an Automation Envelope

(Following on from a KvR thread)

This shows how to convert recorded / edited MIDI CC messages into a plug-in parameter's Automation Envelope (CWITEC's TX16Wx in this case). It uses MIDItoReaControlPath: http://forum.cockos.com/showthread.php?t=43741

1 If needed, map a control (the program slot volume in this case) to a plug-in parameter



2 Show that parameter in Reaper, from the FX window:



Or, from the Envelopes window



3 Add MIDItoReaControlPath to the track, set it as shown and disable the target plug-in



4 Start playback and click the envelope's 'MIDI Learn' button; when you see the details, stop playback and click [OK]



5 Change the track Automation mode to 'Write' and start playback:



When the envelope points have been added, stop playback:



You may need to edit a few points and turn off 'Soft Takeover' (click the 'MIDI Learn' button)

6 Change the Automation mode to 'Read', remove / bypass MIDItoReaControlPath and enable the target plug-in:



7 Remove the MIDI CC messages from the MIDI clip and start playback:




Don't panic, it takes longer to describe than to do

D'oh! - there's an easier way:

-- create the target Automation Envelope and make sure that it is selected,
-- edit the MIDI clip and select the CC messages,
-- open the Action list and run "Convert selected CC events in active item to linear points in selected envelope" (that is an Action in the SWS Extensions)

Thanks to Soli Deo Gloria and Breeder.
