Midi control of plugin instruments
Oct 2nd, 2020, 07:41
I'm using the Spitfire Labs instrument plugins in GarageBand and would like to use a fader or expression pedal to alter the dynamics of the virtual instrument in real time as I record it. The Labs instrument says it can be controlled with a midi controller on CC 1 (which would be a mod wheel on a keyboard). However I don't have a keyboard with a mod wheel to test this. When you open the smart controls window for the virtual instrument there are "knobs" that let you control the virtual instrument, but you have to move them with the mouse. Is there a way to set a midi controller to move these? or is Garage Band hopelessly dumb in this regard?
