I started work on a VST for the Heat that uses midi (bypassing the need for Overbridge entirely). I only have Bitwig for testing so I’m not sure how it will function in other DAW’s.
I’ve gotten a few controls and the ‘Character’ selection working so far and intend to release a first version once I have all the controls mapped. Automation works as expected and you can record your performance live. I should point out that this is my first VST so if there are some gotchas out there that a seasoned developer is aware of - I may stumble into those
The reason for the post is part bug report (I created a support ticket for this on June 9th - but no response as of yet). I was wondering if anyone else ran into this annoying issue with the Heat receiving NRPN data. I’ve confirmed that the Heat is dividing all data values by 2.
e.g. The ‘circuit select’ (aka “Character”) has a normal range of 0-7. Sending a ‘7’ via CC causes the device to switch to ‘High Gain’ as expected. But to get that same thing work using NRPN you need to send a ‘14’.
Anyone else seeing a similar problem?
