    Hello Atom,

    First of all, a big thank you for your amazing work.

    So my request is to have a Clavia Nord Lead 2 specific CTRLR; I have tried the NL3 patch and it seems to work with some problemas as most of the commands on that are not exactly related to the right one on NL2.

    I saw also you are in the process of writing a tutorial to help understand how to create the patches.

    I would be extremely grateful if you can upload a NL2 version and please ask for anything if i can help you.

    My programming skills are not great but I can write an xml for you if you want.

    I will definitely donate at next payday.

    Thank you

    Bassik

    Well if you can change the NL3 XML file to fit a NL2 that would be most of the work.

    the XML for NL3 is here: http://code.google.com/p/ctrlr/source/b … in/NL3.xml

    Hi there,

    thank you for your answer.

    I will do it as soon as i will get 2 hours.

    One quick question:
    the sintax of the xml for NL3 you sent me says: modulator name="nl3Lfo1Rate" type="cc" number="19"

    name is related to the name you assign in your controller or to the name specified in the midi chart of the synth?

    I suppose it is your software nomenclature.

    Cheers

    xml syntax is simple, in case of CCs (nord lead uses those only), type is always cc number is the CC number to transmit, the names correspond to UI elements, i give them all the same prefix for each Ctrlr to simplify registering them with modulators within the plugin, those names also appear in the DAW as VST parameters, there is an additional parameter humanName that can have a much longer string and will be used within Randomizer and Exclusion menus, i recommend to use the as descriptive as you can to simplify the usage, but humanName is not mandatory.

    for NL2 i recommend a prefix of nl2 and the names … well you pick them <img loading=” title=”Smile” /> i’ll just rename corresponding UI elements when youre done, and that’s it, build it and use it.

    One more thing is the <group> tag, you can use this to group parameters, like filter oscillator ENV lfo, this helpes later on with exclusion and randomizer, you can select only those groups, it can be useful.

    Hello Atom,

    sorry for the delay in producing the xml but last time we spoke i have completely forgot I have a gig tonight.

    I will produce the file asap.

    as inspiration for the GUI, I saw this:

    for the GUI i’ll re-use the components for the NL3 editor, it will be the best i guess.

    Hello Atom,

    sorry for the delay.

    Attached the xml file of the midi implementation for Nord Lead 2. :mrgreen:

    I have only considered the paramenters in the Midi Implementation Chart (controller number list); some others like LFO sync seems to be system messages but I am not sure.

    Please let me know if there is something missing.

    Waiting for the vst version.

    Thank you very much

    you used "/" in names, does this mean the same controller is used for two values ?

    you didn’t open the group name before the modulation wheel modulator.
    can you send me a link to the midi specs i’ll verify the XML with them.

    Hello,
    that is the link to the manual: http://www.nordkeyboards.com/downloads/ … 1.0%20(eng).pdf

    Paragraph 12 is the one with the midi specs.

    I just used the same names as the Nord Lead 3…I suppose that the rotary controllers are of the same type….the buttons are of the same type as well…between the 2 synths of course.

    If any problem please let me know

    Hello,

    just realised what you are refferring to whe you say:

    "you used "/" in names, does this mean the same controller is used for two values ?"

    THe answer is yes!
    Nord Lead 2 has LFO2 that can be an arpeggiator if the button is activated.

    Please refer to the manual i sent to you.

    If you need anymore work from me just let me know.

    Sorry but I am totally new to this type of programming.

    well i don’t think that assigning two names to one modulator is a good idea, it’s better to specify two modulators with the same MIDI CC, this will be more readable later, i’ll fix that and update stuff based on the midi specs.

    does this also work with the Nord Lead 2x? I am pretty sure the midi is exactly the same but figured I’d check it out. Thanks!

    well if the midi is the same i see no reason it won’t work.

    for now all downloads were deleted, new engine builds will soon be up.
