After 3 days of work... :help: 8) :D :phones:
Please test the new MIDI implementation!
======================================

ZynAddSubFX VST
ver. 2.4.1.512beta VST VDX version (June 3rd, 2020)

- Fixed "again" right/left panning
- Major change in the Midi implementation (adapted architecture more to the VST standard)
- Midi sync fix with large buffer sizes
- Fixed another preset browser bug (which allowed to cfg file to pile up)
- Properly fixed interaction between 'max_voices' and Virtual Keyboard
- Should in theory work well now with any buffer size (doesn't require fixed buffers anymore).
- Added the option to change the default state of the mod-wheel via the cfg file.
- 30 new quality patches by VDX (Blade Runner, Floyd Diamond, The Unknown Man, and more) :D

Nice work!

At first the new version didn't seem to fix my issue in FL. But I took a second look at the "Processing" tab and found out it happened due to "Process maximum size buffers" option being enabled. Disabling that fixed the stuttering.

Hi, thanks very much for trying it out.

Actually, in this latest version (512) I think I've solved what I had already known from this old report here:
viewtopic.php?f=47&t=499348&p=7002032

What I hope to have decoupled is the connection between the buffer size asked by the host to be filled - and - the internal buffer size (cfg file).

The accuracy of the MIDI rendering still depends on the internal buffer size (from the cfg file) - but only on that.
The lower this buffer, the higher the MIDI accuracy.
However, if you make this internal buffer very low, there is some additional CPU hit.
This number should be a power of 2 also for CPU performance reasons.

For extreme MIDI accuracy, I would set the internal buffer to 32. Testing this, I could not tell the difference between Zyn and other plugins playing very very very fast MIDI notes. See for yourself if the CPU usage increase is negligible or not. I did not test 16 :). If you don't need that kind of accuracy a value of 128 or 256 for the cfg buffer relaxes a bit the CPU.


I was a little surprised that it stutters with the FL "Process maximum buffers".
I'm not sure how FL implements that.
I don't know now if ZynFusion had the same issue *because* of this setting (or otherwise it just works fine).

Anyway, unless you see other issues, I would recommend to use default settings for buffers now in FL (processing options).



I'll also write this here once more, because it seems this is not very clear:

How to automate ZynAddSubFX?

- In the MIDI window, acquire some controls (adds them to the list)
- Instead of a CC number write the star (*) character
- Press Apply

If you check the parameters in the host, it should see now the controls in the MIDI window list, instead of the 'unused' label.

Cheers!
