setParameter

Class: externalAudioPlugin

Set normalized parameter value of hosted plugin

Syntax

setParameter(hostedPlugin,parameter,newValue)

Description

setParameter(hostedPlugin,parameter,newValue) sets the normalized value corresponding to the parameter of hostedPlugin to newValue. Specify the parameter by its unique display name or its index. Specify the new normalized parameter value as a scalar in the range 0–1.

For example, assume hostedPlugin has a parameter with index 3 and a unique display name, 'Gain'. These commands are identical:

  • setParameter(hostedPlugin,'Gain',0.2)

  • setParameter(hostedPlugin,3,0.2)

Note

A hosted plugin might quantize its parameters. The result of setParameter for quantized parameters depends on the type of quantization.
