Forum: Wishes and new features

Post here the features you would like to see developed in VirtualDJ in the future.
Topic: Scripts you'd like to see.(no matter how barking mad) - Page: 2
effect_active 1 ? returns true when the effect on slot 1 is active. I don't seem to understand your logic here.

effect_select cannot be queried for the moment (always false)

One for a non live scenario [but it might have it's place live too]
If I'm running two monitors with v8 on one and another doing 'windows stuff' I think it would be good if there was a script that fakes a mouse click on v8 to tell the o/s I want that to have v8 as the focus [so keyboard shortcuts work]

This might be a bit niche or perhaps impossible [windows handles that sort of thing] but it's a wish.

Have you considered using AutoHotKey ?

This one would be a good one to have for VST's and some users could like this for vdj fx too. [cases where fx dial 2 is used more often then fx dial 1]

example one of my vsts has wet and dry on slider 10, while I can can do something like this

effect_active X 'myVST' ? effect_slider X 10 : effect_slider X 1

that isn't as good as

effect_select X 'myVST' ? effect_slider X 10 : effect_slider X 1

Change skins and keep waveform of choice.

I routinely go from the swap 4 decks skin by DJ Dad to the Default skin for the saved loops and other features with a shortcut on the space bar. Every time I do this I lose my chosen wave form of Scratch Wave Form, Left and Right. It goes back to the Default wave form..

I'd love to see a script that allowed me to keep the waveform I was on while I did the swap.

Any thoughts?

The wave type is normally a panel, figure out how to switch panels and call that after you call the skin.

2 selfish ones to make 'routine' better, both maybe useful for other purposes

1 cue_color 'transparent'
this would make the jump markers for routine invisible on the the song pos, and the rhythm wave
2 option, stop cycles cues, add an option to pick the range of cues to cycle, use will type something like this
All
1 - 8
or 1 - 5, 7 - 16 [so the cycle misses cue 6

Another user requested, a script to set browsed_file rating, to go with that why not loaded_song color.

I might have requested before, but it's not in here so, here it is again

could anything that opens a name dialogue [like playlist save or add v folder] take a string param to name what has just been made

playlist_save "playlistName"

I'm on the verge of making a couple of things that a good few people will like.

settings "controllers" should already work

Awesome, so it does.
Well damn, that's a few thousand mouse miles I didn't need to do, XD
thanks for the info.

Anyone under VIP wondering I made a request to shortcut to mappings, which, so I've been told and I've just proved, is already possible, plus another wish.

I quite often raise my requests as there's no doubt in my mind that the other software makers are watching, [I often watch their wish lists]

Is it possible to script some kind of total-time, time-left, time-spend for samples?
Only thing I found is sampler_position, but I don't know how to script this (if it's possible at all).

Would be a nice feature for all Radio-DJ...

Perhaps possible now, not sure, it may need my private plugin to do the math (vdj has limits to the maths it can perform) but I can see how it could work.

I'll look into it, but I think script needs to parse all values, I showed a plugin to devs, but maybe there's a snag to write auto parsing into the script language.

Thanks for your info ;o)

Midi out so I can link my decks with my mates for the project I'm forming & not have to go the Ableton route

Posted Wed 24 May 17 @ 6:09 am
Direct MIDI out and MIDI Clock out are already possible.
And this wish doesn't belong to scripting engine anyway! :)

Sorry still finding my feet in this kind of world. I will do more searching as I couldn't find anything useful on it

No actions available to either name/rename/create Sampler Bank or batch-set samples to Sync mode.

Feel free to add all these in the Wishes Forum
