|Super Midi Scripter |
Super midi scripter is a midi scripting vsti for windows compatible hosts. It acts as a relay between the host and the
instrument. The scripting engine allow to design some midi effects,filters or instruments directly at the runtime inside
the vst environment.
Super midi scripter is a simple tool that can help into recording data inside a midi sequencer:
event filtering, event transformation, sequencing are the common tasks Super midi scripter can be used for.The plugin is provided with a basic library of instruments that can be used directly, almost without messing with scripting:
* Chords : most common chords that can be triggered by playing the root note ( "single finger chord" )
* Force : constrain note messages to a particular scale on a defined root
* CMaj : transpose Cmaj to a particular scale at a defined root ( adapted from "DoMaj plugin)
* Various others scripts, more or less experimental...
The use of scripting allow to design uncommon midi processors. From a single midi events (or from a "song position change" event) the plugin is capable of sending up to 130 simultaneous new ( or transormed) events. It means that it's possible to program a whole song in a script.The most important when scripting can is abstraction". Why ? Because musical ideas must be transposed into code, instead of grid events. They can be transposed with the following scripting features:
* Maths operations : *,/,-,+,mod
* Logical operations: not,and,xor,or
* Others operations : movments, random number generator
* Flow: various conditionals blocks (if, while, onvarchange) , iteration loops, labels and goto
* Binary file operations: read, write
Communication with an array of graphical parameters
* global data type: integer ( various form of : constant,array,initialized array) syntax highlighter, completion proposal
The scripting engine is specially designed for this product. It has its own syntax and its own way of processing. A scripting manual is included with the plugin, explaining more deeply what is introduced here.
