Hey,

DAW Control is a machine that allows you to bind some Buzz functionalities (Play, Stop, Record etc.) to your favorite Midi device. I needed something like this so maybe you find it useful.

It supports "note events" and Midi control messages. Currently it triggers only when value 127 is received.

Version 0.2
  • Note: Changes how the bindings are handled in the code. You need to re-bind controls in your saved song. Sorry!
  • Things you can control from your Midi controller in Buzz:
    • Play
    • Stop
    • Record
    • Forward
    • Rewind
    • Goto Beginning
    • Loop Enabled
    • Increase Speed
    • Decrease Speed
    • Solo Machine
  • Changing speed does not update Buzz UI for some reason.

Version 0.1
  • First release

Cool, I'll have to take a look.

I use bome midi translator for this same purpose. It translates midi into keystrokes. The main limitation is that buzz won't accept the keystrokes if it doesn't have focus, but that's a normal buzz idiosyncrasy.

This topic should probably go in 'users'

Curses! I wanted to make the first machine of the year! :lol:

Thanks for sharing. I made a transport machine ages ago but didn't do much with it. Look forward to trying yours.

Sorry for saying this should go in users, I thought you were sharing a third party utility. Still though, a cross post maybe.

So yeah, I really needed this functionality and that's why I got bome. What features does your machine have? (I'll try it of course.)

Definitely this should go to 'users' when the machine is more feature stable.

Regarding ctrl-b and ctrl-e, this machine is not really designed to generate custom keyboard messages to Buzz. Rather, it is calling directly certain methods of the DAW. Maybe I'll add these later if really needed and if I figure out how to do it.

'Focus Buzz application window' might be easier to bind to midi event :D

Hi wde,

thanx for sharing !!

Do you plan a feature with that you can loop a sequence ? (from time signature x to time signature y?

As I understand, you "press" the loop button of buzz

by a keyboard midi command in the latest version?

Right, so currently DAW Control 'Loop Enabled' toggles the button that enables Buzz to loop sequence from beginning (set by CTRL-B in the sequence view) to song end (set by CTRL-E in the sequence view).

Is your request to define separate set of "loop beginning" and "loop end" values in sequence view that you can toggle from Midi controller?

Hmm, well, somehow yes.
I was thinking about to use it as a kind of pattern based jump command. So, to precise my question, is it possible to use the MIDI-CC of the patternXP to trigger your commands?
A kind of internal mode.

Thanx!

This would be super cool, something that would increment or decrement the loop start or stop points by x bars. hook that up to the forward/back buttons on a midi controller.

thanks for this awesome new machine!

does the solo machine feature have a target machine? not sure what it's soloing.

also do you have a tip jar? this has brought me so much happiness and I would like to buy you a coffee/beer :) :mrgreen:

You should see a drop down menu on the right side of the 'solo' row. Try resizing the window if not.

Happy to hear that this tiny machine is useful to others as well. You can buy me a beer in the next Buzz summit :D

aha, found the solo target dropdown. nice! it would be awesome to have multiple targets for the solo button and a mute feature as well.

I have so much fun with the skip forward and back feature. I use it like a stutter/glitch effect.

excellent work and I look forward to buzz summit 2019! :lol:
