Controll Main Volume with Midi CC

Post by BastianEmbedMusic » Thu Sep 12, 2019 4:40 pm

Hi,
i am trying to find a way to controll the Main Volume with midi CC messages.
In the sunvox manual there is only a section on midi output that mentions the main volume. I tried to send midi cc messages with the paramters mentioned in there but it doesn't affect the main volume in sunvox which might come from them only working as midi output.
And there is no keyboard shortcut for controlling the main volume.

So is there a way to controll the main volume with midi CC messages?
If not is there another way? (i can controll the volume of a compressor that sits before the output, but its not optimal i guess)

Greetings

Why is controlling a module not optimal, I wonder?

I'd suggest putting an Amplifier as the last module in the chain (and the only module connected to Output) and then map a CC to its "fine volume" controller.

Then, set the SunVox master volume to the maximum you'd want it at, and the fine volume control on the Amplifier will give you a 0-100% adjustment of the output level.

Hi that sounds like a good idea. With the compressor i think that the volume settings actually changes how the compressor compresses the signal, thats why i thought it is not a good idea. But i haven't thought of the amplifier as another module before the output
