Alesis Andromeda A6 VST


The day (or year..lol) has finally arrived. I'm gonna post what I've re-coded so far, in-case I get run over by a bus or my computer explodes Rolling Eyes Initially I thought about selling this for $5 or something, but then realized the Internets has taught and given me so much, this is my way of giving back Embarassed

Disclaimer : I made this so I could automate some parameters on the Andromeda which weren't available on the Mod pages, like Envelope 2 Amount for example. I didn't design this to be a 'patch editor' of any sorts, and thus, it is pretty basic in it's functionality for now. However someday I hope to develop this plugin enough to completely replace being in-front of the Andromeda :]

http://www.analogdessert.com/vst/Andromeda-Cockpit-v0.1.zip -- Please read KNOWN QUIRKS before downloading !

If you would like to support me, and the continued development of the Alesis Andromeda A6 VST, please consider making a donation :] It lets me know people are interested :]

++++++++++++++++++++++++
KNOWN QUIRKS
++++++++++++++++++++++++

- ONLY WORKS WITH SYSEX ENABLED DAWS. It's been shown to work with REAPER, and FL Studio. It does not work in SONAR, or Cubase yet. Please let us know any other Sysex Enabled DAWs you've got this plugin to work in!

- When automating multiple parameters, enable the Andromeda's DISPLAY LOCK, or else the Andromeda's screen will go beserk, and your envelopes may be delayed.

- The more notes / voices you play on the Andromeda, and the more parameters you automate, the more latency you will notice from adjusting a parameter to hearing the changes. AFAIK, This is is a hardware limitation, and may not beable to be completely resolved. The parameter "Sysex Thinning" may help.


++++++++++++++++++++++++
Current Features:
++++++++++++++++++++++++

Master Tune Adjustment
Background Tuning Toggle
Temperature Tuning Toggle
Unison Detune
Unison Voices

Oscillator 1 & 2 Fine Tuning

Pre-Filter Filter 1 Mix Level
Pre-Filter Filter 2 Low Pass Level\
Pre-Filter Pre-Filter Level
Distortion To Main, FX1, FX2 Toggles

Distortion Level
FX Input Level

I will try to release a new version every month, with new features and user-suggested-tweaks / updates.

++++++++++++++++++++++++

Suggestion: Have you looked at this free project here?

http://ctrlr.org/

If you are going to make a GUI, this project may alleviate lots of groundwork for you. All the MIDI communication routines and graphical stuff should already be in it.

And as an added bonus, the resulting GUI will be multi-platform (Win, Mac, VST, AU)

Cheers,
Helge

I am coding my own GUI from Scratch, but this looks way cleaner, and full of fancy GUI Controls. Thanks for the resource! Very Happy Seems easy to implement, which is no problem, because I know all languages Very Happy

Edit:
Here's a quick, gritty sound I dialed in with my VST. Nothing special -- but you can hear me editing some stuff in real-time. Very very valuable asset to have for producing.

Well, I'm just one person, but I definitely got interest in it. You got some new screenshots of the gui? Greets

Slowly, but surely, a shitty looking GUI is coming along. Hehe.

Posted Image, might have been reduced in size. Click Image to view fullscreen.

EDIT: The currently released version does not look like this -- the screen shot here was of the version I lost when I reinstalled Windows Embarassed

Any quick ways to set up modulations and easily setup say and aftertouch routing would be amazing....

When I've conquered all of the parameters on the front panel of the Andromeda, I shall conquer the CROUTES and Modulations Twisted Evil

I am very interested in this as well and would be willing to pay for it.
To me personally the GUI wouldn't need to be fancy. It'd sure be very nice but having an editor in the first place is more important to me Wink
If all parameter even in the submenues and Andromeda's settings could be edited (if this is even possible) this would be an absolute power tool and I'd stretch my wallet even further Wink

Hope this thread is not dead!

Would love an editor for the old andy. Im still to be considered a beginner on the a6, but if this means to be able to recall and control 16 channels in my DAW, its good news.

Then I would love to see control over the fx section and routings as well Smile

Subject description: wouold be nice to have the routings available on vst controls
Reply with quote  Mark this post and the followings unread

the andromeda can be very sensitive with the jumping knobs, it makes it terrible to tweak the value of the functions in the routings
lfo to filter controls would be nce to have as vst control
not specificly for automation but for building patches
also the sequencer is time consuming to program with the sensitive jumping softpods
great work allready
grtz
happy 2014

Wow that would be super nice. i am very interested in a vst editor for andromeda and for sure i am willing to pay fort this software.

I made my own cubase editor in which i can save the banks and with 8 controllers connected to the CC:Gen Purp A - H. So i can route all the andromeda knobs to one of these 8 controllers. But a vst would be much more easyer!

Please go for it mate!

Hey Everyone!

This thread Is not dead Very Happy But I have some good news, and some bad news. The bad news Is that, when I formatted my hard-drive I forgot to backup a source-code folder, and this was one of the projects I lost. The good news Is that I justttt started recreating this editor (along with a Juno-106 one)

I have started development on this plugin again.

Functionality and code wise, I am back to the point where I have most of the buttons & knobs on the front of the Andromeda controllable by my VST. Very Happy Very Happy I haven't scratched the surface in regards to controlling modulation assignments yet. That's next, along with adding an A6-GUI like I had before.

The so-so news: The plugin only works on Reaper, and FL Studio. Those are the only DAW's which support SysEx, and have the extremely flexible routing configurations needed for this plugin to work. (The one's I've tested on with no success, were BitWig Studio (No Sysex support), Cubase (Sysex can only be sent from MIDI Tracks. And one cannot insert VST's to MIDI tracks) , and Ableton Live 9 (No Sysex support).

Tonight, or sometime this weekend, I will add some additional functionality to the VST (LFO, and Envelope Dynamics parameters), and I've decided to post an alpha release version here for all to enjoy, play with, and give feed back on.

Cheers
