Upon further investigation into creating a vst for the Roland Gaia SH01 I’ve hit gold. As Cubase is now my primary DAW yesterday I realized that I can just create a custom midi device and panel and use the sysex commands to control the synth. I’m pumped as I seem to waste a lot of time trying to find the right sound I created as the Gaia doesn’t have a name display. If I can get it all linked into Cubase I’ll be able to save tones and even create channel presets which should save me a lot of time of the sounds I reuse. I’ve downloaded MidiOx to interpret the sysex information but it still seems like its going to be a very time consuming process, but then everything worthwhile is. While I’m at it I hope to make a setup for the Casio CDP-220R as well. When these are done I’ll host them here so other people can use them too. After Easter this is my highest priority.
I am also going to start playing with plugins for Unity. @tomkillen managed to get full Fmod integration with the current version of Unity and I’m wasting a lot of resources getting around the strange limitations that Unity puts on its Fmod back end. So I figure why bother? I’ll just spend some time getting right to the core and use Fmod designer, I’m sure one of the other WPC pricks will have some guidance for me!
