  • Digital Performer commands don't work correctly with DP10.11 83650

    An easy example: Set up a gesture that triggers the Transport Rewind function, and a second one that triggers Transport Play.

    Activate the gesture for Rewind. Note that the rewind button turns blue and stays that way. (This is different from manual use, when the button turns blue to highlight, and then turns off when released.)

    Then attempt to activate the Play. Nothing happens.

    If you mouse-click anywhere in the Digital Performer window, Play will become active. But the whole point of Metapad is to control the application and not have to go back to the computer and click.

    I speculate that Metapad is making DP think it started pushing the transport button, but never stopped pushing it.

    For a more dramatic demonstration, bind a gesture to Transport->Slow Forward and activate it.

    The main window starts repeatedly advancing, and never stops; the application is effectively hung at this point. You still appear to have some control, as you can activate menu items; but these do nothing, not even Quit. The only way to stop is to force-quit the application. This is disastrous.

        I am also interested in if there are updated instructions on how to install Metagrid for DP 10.13 Just like in CuBase 11 the View Sets show up correctly but the buttons don't seem to do anything. Thank You.

          gjamrok Do you have Metaserver 2.30 running on your machine?

            Yes, Metaserver 2.30 and now I'm having a problem where I load up metagrid and the buttons have all changed locations. This is really bad and has destroyed my workflow. I'm going to lose a day of work to this and when I try to restore the backup from the Dropbox Metagrid crashes. Please help.

            Was there ever a solution to the DP problem from almost a year ago?

            It's the title issue of this thread.

              Papilo - Digital Performer MIDI implementation for transport related commands is disastrous. Metapad just sends standard MIDI messages - and they work in any DAW apart from transport-related DP commands. What's even more interesting, the vast majority of DP commands can be triggered with MIDI with no issues - try assigning any gestures to some other commands in DP - they work as expected. We have contacted MOTU about this but we haven't got any answer back...

                I'm eager to hear what you get back. I generally don't need remote support of most DP commands, but I do need transport control.
