[BETA] Version 1.9.0-beta

Version 1.9.0 is almost ready; it adds a long waited (and popular) feature: reverb and chorus settings.

These settings are not "live", they must be set through Configurator -> Options tab, so a VirtualMIDISynt restart (or a MIDI reset) is needed.
I suppose this is the best implementation because (usually) these settings are sent through SYSEX messages at the beginning of a song, not during play.

Reverb and chorus will change the effect return value of the corresponding XG effect (see here for details: http://www.studio4all.de/htmle/frameset094.html).
By default it's 40h (64); if you set them both to 20h, then the value of MIDI controllers #91 and #93 values are then interpreted as values within that new range.

Reverb --> REVERB RETURN (Send to master) --> F0,43,10,4C,02,01,0C,XX,F7
Chorus --> CHORUS RETURN (Send to master) --> F0,43,10,4C,02,01,2C,XX,F7

The beta is here for you (musicians) to let me know if my implementation suits your needs or is there any improvement to do.

Feel free to post your suggestions here...

Claudio ottimo lavoro, la cosa che dovresti cercare di fare è dividere gli effetti sulla batteria rendendoli indipendenti dal resto del banco poichè la batteria ne risente in maniera incredibile ed anche un valore di 40 è troppo per essa ma potrebbe non bastare per gli altri preset.

Translation by Coolsoft: Nice done, Claudio. What you should do now is split effects settings between drums channel and the others;  40 could be too high for the drums and too low for the others.

Re: [BETA] Version 1.9.0-beta

La cosa non è tecnicamente possibile, dato che BASS non permette di distinguere gli effetti sulle singole traccie ma solo sull'intero stream.
Anche MIDI (tramite i controller #91 e #93) permette di impostare il riverbero e il chorus non sulla singola traccia ma sul totale.

English:
This is not possible, because the underlying BASS libs does not allow to control reverb/chorus for a single track.
Also MIDI (through controllers #91 and #93) can set their values but only for the whole MIDI stream.

Good Job Claudio! :)

I will try this on my Live Gigs and will get back at you with my comments. So far it sound nice..

I have only one question, will it replace the Reverb & Chorus values i placed at the beginning of my midi files?

It shouldn't because these default values will be applied only just after a MIDI Reset message.
Maybe beta2 will have an option to ignore Reverb/Chorus settings coming from MIDI stream...

Then that would be great for Live Performances.. having midi files with the same values of Reverb & Chorus would mimic Live Stages. Good Luck & More Power!

[BETA] Version 1.9.0-beta2 released

Just released 1.9.0-beta2.

It adds a new option to override Reverb & Chorus SYSEX messages received through MIDI channel (maybe embedded into the MIDI file you're playing) and force our custom values.

It also fixes a small memory leak into MIDI messages queue.

Please test it and report bugs & suggestions here.
