Well having such good docs for mix station makes understanding it quick…kudos to David!
So it has an OSC api but its probably a lot of work for not a lot of gain although way more elegant…you could even run it from a browser!
The ui elements ie sliders etc dont allow you to address stuff that isnt XR
It does send midi out from the xr when you do tweak the xr and its all on the same machine so that means it is should work fine…nearly there
so the next step; knowing the key to GP as a newb (like me)
GP doesnt work midi to midi ie CC1 comes in and you map it to the plugin parameter; it has a middle man = “The Widget”.
Those Sliders, knobs etc are what you see as the ‘dashboard’, well for you, at least when you are
testing and setting up
They then pass that control parameter on in their own manner
That was the main issue I had in understanding because midi is normally just device>plugin parameter
So you can go just go as you were thinking and keep it really simple
XR midi out > GP > Widget > Plugin parameter
but the real issue is that you will somehow need to lose a fader somewhere and hijack it to GP. In other words turn off an on board verb to eg or disable and instead route that to GP
Hope that helps
I have to work
