Ardour has automation modes for many of its controls. As of version 5.9, OSC can control what automation mode a fader uses. (See Automation.)
The form of the automation mode command is:
/strip/[control]/automation ii ssid mode
- /strip may also be /select in which case the only parameter is the mode.
- [control] as of Ardour version 5.9 control can be:
- ssid can be a parameter as shown or inline (automation/[ssid]). /select has no ssid.
- mode can be one of:
The next version of Ardour will add
/strip/[control]/automation_name is ssid mode_name
as feedback. A surface may choose to use only the first character of the string (M, P, W or T) instead of
the whole string (this is in git now).
The touch mode needs more input so there is a Touch command as well (added post 5.9). It is almost identical to the automation command:
/strip/[control]/touch ii ssid touch
The only difference is the last parameter is 1 for touched and 0 for touch released. All of the rest of the explanation above applies.
