Last year, I said I will write something like a manual about VST definition XML file. Today, I finished its alfa version and uploaded it.

I DO NOT totally understand XML for Overture, and I have a lot of questions about it. I hope somebody in this forum will correct and improve this guide with me and other members.

Thanks.


Tatsu,
This is a WONDERFUL start...thank you so much for posting this!
It is something I simply have not had time to investigate, but you have done excellent work!
Perhaps when my current projects are over, I will look further at the XML structure...you have inspired me!!
THANK YOU!
Jim

Outstanding document! Very easy to understand and use.

Thank you for taking the time to prepare and share this with the group.

Excellent effort Tatsu, this is just what is needed. :D
I didn't know that there were any pedal XML keywords - I will try them as soon as I get home.
Many thanks,
David

I tried changing my XML for pianoteq but couldn't get Overture to recognise the Pedal Up/ Pedal Down articulation keywords. Have you actually managed to get this working yourself Tatsu? Do you have working example?
Cheers,
David

OK Tatsu, I guess that leaves Pedal Up/Down as XML managed articulations as something on my wish list.
Thanks anyway,
David

Tatsu,

In section 4 you wrote <I don’t understand very well about “on=” and “off=” at “Legato/Sustain”>
My own understanding is that if legato="on" then the legato/sustain on and off values are sent at the start and end of a slur - where a value of 127 is fully sustained and zero is no sustain (some instruments allow fully variable sustain).

I do hope Don reads your guide and responds to some of the points and requests that you have made so clearly.

Kind regards,
David

Hi Tatsu,

I understand what you are saying now.
Just to be clear, the articulation XML that defines "legato" identifies the cc# to use for legato and the on & off values to be sent at the start and end of slurs (if legato=on).
The XML defined controller name for that legato cc# will appear in the articulation dialogue drop down and there can only be one name against any given cc# therefore:
-multiple Controller name definitions against any cc# are superflous.
-"on" and "off" value definitions in Controller names are superfluous.

Thank you for that, I admit I was getting a bit confused :shock: I have now changed my XML for Pianoteq to line up with this understanding.

Best regards,
David

P.S. I tried the XMLeditor.net you mentioned in your guide but unfortunately I could only find the version with Japanese menus! It seems to run OK & I liked the spreadsheet type view but for me it was a bit like playing russian roulette!
There are a few other freebies around but the Microsoft one (XML Notepad 2007) seemed as good as any but not as good as yours.

How is the XML script associated with a given VSTi? I only have the demo, so perhaps that something that's left out?

No XML in the documentation index.
