alright, pardon the abstract thinking here, but i can’t resist asking if this is somehow possible …
Since lots of the data types used between these waldorf wavetable synths I’ve been working so deeply in ctrlr with I started brainstorming on instead of keeping three editors all up to date with very similar waveform/wavetable editors the possibility of deving one single waveform/wavetable editor with switches depending on what version synth (microwave, XT, blofeld, etc) is being used. Then within my three editors you could launch one single panel file.
I suppose it would need to work in edit mode (launch .bpanelz), standalone instance (launch .app/exe) and plugin mode.. somehow.
I wonder if you could somehow behind the scenes trick ctrlr into thinking a bpanelz is a component? Maybe you load the child bpanelz in as a resource to your main parent panel?September 16, 2013 at 8:31 pm #13317
I don’t think i get it. You can open many bpanelz files (panels) in one Ctrlr instance, they’ll be added as tabs in Ctrlr.September 18, 2013 at 12:29 am #13361
The microwave XT and microwave 1 synths are two different synths. I’ve created two different ctrlr based editors for both synths, but both synths treat waveforms and wavetables very similarly.
So I have two different bpanelz files with very similar functionality and code base for their waveform/wavetable editors, everything else is very different but the waveform and wavetable editing functionality is identical.
What I’d like to do is put all the waveform/wavetable editing stuff into one panel that can then be referenced and used by both the microwave1 and microwaveII/XT editors I’ve created. This way if I have added functionality for the waveform and wavetable editor of the microwaveXT editor I don’t need to recreate everything in my microwave1 editor.
Does this make more sense? Now that I’m ALSO making a blofeld editor which has *some* carryover from the microwave I and microwave II/XT synths i’d need to triple my workload if I add anything to the wavetable editor. I’d love to be able to develop wavetable/form functionality in ONE panel that’s referenced by the microwave 1, microwave 2/xt AND blofeld editor.
