Multislider Object - bidirectional com

Postby jasonjasonson » 02 Nov 2017 21:06

So I'm trying to use the Multislider Object to control a plugin (Expert Sleepers LFO) using OSC
16 sliders, all with their individual address, going from /exsl/SWStepLFO/1/Step1L all the way up to /exsl/SWStepLFO/1/Step16L (the L stands for left, since the plugin also has a right channel).

I created a Multislider object with variable x assigned to /exsl/SWStepLFO/1/Step 1L, scaled from -1 to 1 (since these are the values used in the plugin)
I then managed to create expressions (vector variables) in the Multislider Object (as described in the Lemur Manual envelope-example) and assign individual addresses to individual sliders, all scaled to the correct value. So for example, I have an Expression called "Slider2" which has the address /exsl/SWStepLFO/1/Step2L and the script =([x1]*2)-1, which means slider x1 (first slider being x0) should be used, and the input value 0 to 1 should be scaled with the fancy formula to -1 to 1.

So far so good, but this only seems to work one way: I can move the sliders on Lemur and the sliders in the plugin window will move accordingly (great), but I can't seem to get it to work the other way around: if I try to move the sliders in the plugin, they seem to be "stuck" on the value I gave them from within Lemur (not so great). They "move", but immediately jump back to the Lemur-value, as if this value is over-rulling the communication from plugin to Lemur.
However, this bidirectional communction does work for the first slider (variable x): if I lower the slider on the plugin, Lemur follows. It doesn't work on my vector variables/expressions (x1, x2 etc...), so my guess is this has something to do with it, but I can't seem to find out what exactly.

Any ideas? Thanks.

Post your template and I'll look at it
Have you tried turning it off and on again?

Here you go!
Don't know if this makes sense without the software (Silent Way - Step LFO), but thanks for having a look!
