The VIP 3.1 release includes new MIDI maps for:
Macro controls can now control multiple parameters: Each knob or button in the Multi tab of the Control Panel can now control up to eight individual parameters. In the GUI load a patch or multi, show the Multi tab of the Control Panel in the Control Area and show the Inspector in the right-hand side area. In the Control Area turn the Learn button on and click the first Macro knob so that it is flashing. Next, in the GUI of a synthesizer or effects plugin move the control you want to learn. In the Inspector you will see that this has been learnt to Knob 1 > Controls > Slot 1. To learn a second parameter to the same knob, click on Slot 2 in the list under Controls in the Inspector so that it is highlighted. Now from the GUI of a synthesizer or effects plugin move a different control to assign it. If you prefer you can also manually assign parameters to different slots in the Inspector using the Plugin and Parameter drop down menus. Each parameter slot has its own range that can be configured via the minimum and maximum controls. To configure a Macro control on your expanded VIP keyboard go to its Edit page in Control mode and move the cursor up to the top left field, from here you can increment through the Macro Slots and edit their assignments.
MIDI Filter: Each part in a multi can now filter incoming MIDI data. In the Multi Panel click the filter icon to the right of the MIDI Channel field to bring up the MIDI Filter popup. An example of where this would be useful is if you want to play a lead synth sound with your right hand with pitch bend and modulation embellishments whilst sustaining left hand piano chords underneath it. Using the MIDI Filter you can now filter out the pitch bend and modulation messages from the piano part, and filter out the sustain pedal message from the lead part.
Routing: From the Preferences window scroll down to the Routing section, from here you can globally remap VIP’s virtual audio outputs to a different set of physical outputs. This can be useful when you have a large multi-output performance setup where your multi’s parts have been routed to different outputs and then wish to use those multis with a smaller setup. Now you can globally remap all of the outputs to Outputs 1,2.
Velocity Ranges: You can now configure parts in a Multi to have different velocity ranges. Use the Velocity Start and End fields in the Multi Panel to assign a velocity range to a part.
Replace Patch: You can now save the edits you have made to an existing patch using the Replace Patch option. In the Patch Browser, Right-Click on the current patch and choose Replace Patch.
Mackie Control Support: The standalone VIP application now supports control of Level, Pan, Mute, Solo and Part Selection via the Mackie Control protocol. Go to VIP’s Audio / MIDI Settings, enable the input of your Mackie Control surface and set the Mackie Control Input and Output fields to your Mackie Control MIDI device. CTRL49 users can now set up and use the Mackie control portion of the CTRL49 with the standalone VIP application.
