Hi

Could we maybe communicate by email, so that I can get a log about your sound card?

Thanks

Another issue - Only the first 8 letters of a macro is shown as the name in the DAW. Surely it can be longer? All the name are getting cut off.
Indeed, VST2.4 parameter names are restricted to 8 characters. That's just how the VST protocol is.
But not all plugins (or should I say: most) or hosts seem to respect that. i.e. I can easily get more than 8 chars showing in Reaper when automating, for example, Kontakt parameters. u-he plugins show even longer parameter names (over 20 chars) - and they show up just fine in parameter lists in Reaper.

I also tested this in FL Studio, Live, Studio One and Maschine. They all show more than 8 chars for parameter names (or should I say - they all just show what the plugin is spitting out, I cannot see if there's a hard limit here - except for example with Kontakt, it hard limits the param name to 16 chars).

So, doing this like all those other hosts would be nice!

Agreed! I was going to post images of Bitwig and Ableton and Maschine showing much longer names from plugins as examples, but didn't get around to it. Actually even Freestyle itself is a host for plugins and shows the full names longer than 8 characters in it's plugin parametert list and when macros are assigned. It just doesn't send the full names of it's macros to the host in which it is loaded as a plugin.
