Hi,
Apparently it is not possible to control modulation depth of filters with Midi CCs, not to assign modulation levels, and macros are not useable for this neither.
But may be I missed something ?

I just want to control the modulation amount sent to the filter in a midi controller = the level of the modulation mix sent to the filter cutoff.

Anyone found a way to do this ?

Best Regards

PS; if it is a feature for the future, then it would be even better if this parameter is comon to all filters (no need to re-assign a CC number when you change the filter type - which leads me to ask for Midi CC controllable Filter Type selection :-) ).

Hi,

In Pigments 3 Midi CC assigments is done in the right side panel in the "MIDI" section.
(Just in case: Click the work wheel to the right of the output meters in the top of Pigments 3 to open the panel.)
Are you saying this is'nt working?

Or is it Pigments sidechain feature you are looking for? That you can use a Macro to control.

Hi LBH,
thanks for the reply.
I will try the sidechain.

I was looking for a way to control "mod depth" with any filter, especially the ones that do not have the FM parameter such as the Juno filter.
It would also allow to control the depth of a mixed modulation (for example; EG+LFO) because the FM knob only allows 1 modulator at a time.

Yes, the midi setting page is well known here, I just began configuring several midi controllers for Pigments, that's how I found some areas where midi CC is missing or frustrating (for example, too bad we cannot switch engine pages with buttons or potis, or load next sample or WT, etc  :-) )

Your welcome spacef.

control the depth of a mixed modulation (for example; EG+LFO)
This i would use the internal sidechain feature for.

I agree that some things like being able to browse and load your own none imported samples could be more user friendly.
For the imported samples you at least can use the up/down arrow keys on a computer keyboard.  Being able to use the left/ right arrow keys to switch between folder and sample selection would be good.

cool I did not know the keyboard shortcuts....
I will try sidechain too !

The way I have been doing this is to set the Side chain to 1.00 with a Macro as the source for example and with the Macro turned all the way up set the max mod level you want. Then when the macro is all the way down mod level is 0 and all the way up it is the max you set as the mod level.
To be able to use a chosen CC message as the source is a really good idea! Then you could use the macros for other stuff.
Maybe post this as a request in the Features thread.
