Button state command through VBAN

Post by LeoLuxo »

Hello,

I have a setup with a main device with some macro buttons and a secondary device dedicated to sending macro button commands.
VBAN TEXT commands work well, but the following command doesn't seem to work:

Code: Select all

BEGIN_SECTION("vban1")
Button(3).State = 1;
END_SECTION
In the screenshot of the primary device's VBAN config below, you can see that the command does get received:

But it doesn't seem to ever get executed by the primary macro buttons (no buttons on either devices change).
Is this intentional or potentially a bug?

This feature would be very useful to sync different 2-position buttons for example, like a mute button that can be activated from both devices..

Thank you in advance :)

Voicemeeter won't execute instruction for MacroButton... VBAN-TEXT request are not forwarded to MacroButton... But VBAN-MIDI requset are forwarded to MacroButton. so you may consider sending VBAN MIDI message instead (and configure the MacroButton to learn the incoming MIDI code).

Thank you for the clever workaround idea!
My first tests seems to work well, but I will still need more time experimenting with VBAN MIDI to see how far I can take the idea.
