Dynamic Parameter Values

Hey all.

I’m a little newer to using CSS but I’m really enjoying it so far. I was looking for some info about this concept but either didn’t find it or didn’t know what to search.

I was mapping my OP-1 so that knobs 1-4 would control controls 1-4 of whatever plugin was selected. This idea was originally for synthesizers. So I made a bunch of 3rd party default configs for stuff like Arturia and then expanded this idea up to like 12 controls by doing some mode shifting.
I really liked this method because it felt user intuitive and I was whipping around pretty fast with a pretty simple set of controls.

The place where this idea fell flat was sort of 2 areas. The first being any stock Ableton plugin obviously where the controls are pre mapped, and the second being any plugin control where the value range was something like 0-1.0 instead of 0%-100%.

I was curious if anyone else had a similar strategy and ran into the same problem.

I’m sure that there’s got to be some way to write something like a reaction or some other more complex form of scripting that would know how to pull these ranges and then adjust the controller accordingly but I haven’t been able to think my way through it yet.

Any tips?

I've figured out how to program a reaction that does device parameter control based on the selected device but now I'm trying to figure out how to implement "value scaling" into this process. Any tips?
