Has now 1342 functions, with 48 new ones
new in this release:
Ever wanted to write scripts that do, what the theme-adjuster can? Here's your chance.
42 functions give you life, themeiverse and all the rest needed.
Create new scripts and open them in the IDE right from a script. Or edit an existing one. Now possible with EditReaScript().
GetFocusedFX and GetLastTouchedFX
Basically like Reaper's own ones BUT I improved the parameter-interface so it is actually useable for regular scripters.
Sometimes, you want to get the first error-message that has happened in your script, which signals, what's the first thing that went wrong.
SFEM(for Show First Error Message) is your way to go.
IsItemVisible and IsTrackVisible
That's right, you can check now, if an item or track is visible in the arrangeview.
You can check, whether they are fully in arrangeview or just partially.
Small Fixes and Docs
Small bugfixes here and there as well updates to the docs for Reaper 6.15 and SWS 2.12.1
Has now 1294 functions, with 54 new ones
new in this release:
You can now code monitoringFX the same as you already could code TrackFX and TakeFX. Ever wanted to set a full FXChain into monitoring fx? Now you can.
54 functions only for that. I must be insane...
Fixed a bug and therefore added a new feature for parameter linking.
ParmModTables have now two entries to set the index of the linked plugin: PARMLINK_LINKEDPLUGIN and PARMLINK_LINKEDPLUGIN_RELATIVE.
To set an absolute plugin-index, set PARMLINK_LINKEDPLUGIN=absolute-index and PARMLINK_LINKEDPLUGIN_RELATIVE=nil
To set a relative plugin-index, set PARMLINK_LINKEDPLUGIN=any number and
PARMLINK_LINKEDPLUGIN_RELATIVE=0(current plugin), negative(higher in the FXChain), positive(lower in the FXChain)
GetFunctions will usually have the linked plugin indexed in a relative-to-the-current-plugin-index(Reaper's standard behavior).
Renderfunctions sometimes created peak-files when not necessary. This is fixed now and speeds up the time between finished render and returning to the project.
Has now 1240 functions, with 25 new ones
new in this release: - Parameter Modulation/Learn/Alias/LFOLearn
A long time feature-request finally fulfilled. You have full access to programmatically get/alter parameter-modulation, parameter aliases, LFOLearn or Learn in general.
So anything you would want to do with parameter-modulation can now be scripted.
I'm curious, what will happen because of that feature. Surprise me.
Requested by so many.
Please consider donating, as this was a massive undertaking. Holy cow!
Allows now different output-targets, so outputting the last error-message to the ReaScript-console or even the clipboard is possible with that.
Now included is the Lua 5.3 reference-manual, so it's always at your hand when needed.
Ultraschall-API settings dialog
There's now an Ultraschall-API settings dialog. Not much in there yet, but you can already set, where SLEM() or ultraschall.ShowLastErrorMessage() shall output their error-messages.
More to follow.
Launchpad_functions I wrote some launchpad 1st generation-functions, which you can find in the misc-folder. So if you want to be able to program its button's lights, you can do it.
Gmem functions For those of you, who want to use different gmem-names in your functions, you sometimes run into trouble, that you can't restore the old gmem-attachement again, as you can't get its old name.
Now you can. Gmem_GetCurrentAttachedName returns the last used gmem-attachname. Keep it to later attach the old gmem back.
This works best, if you add the dofile-line to activate Ultraschall-API as first code-line in your script.
To showcase the background-copying-functions, I wrote a small filemanager demo, which is now available in the example-scripts.
It shows you, how you can copy even large files in the background and still manage to run the UI of a script without having to code complex background-copying-routines.
MB works again on Windows and Linux Broke in Reaper 6 but I could fix it so replacing the button-texts is possible again. Mac-users are out of luck, as the button-texts can't be replaced there in the first place. Sorry.
GetUserInputs on Mac
Also broke with Reaper 6 due some internal changes of Reaper. I finally managed to make it work again.
So you can get and set the captions and retvals again of the GetUserInputs-dialog.
Resizing of caption/retval-fields and the positioning of the GetUserInput-window doesn't work on Mac currently, but will return later.
So you can use these parameters safely on Mac and one of the future updates will make it work out of a sudden. :)
Has now 1215 functions, with 15 new ones
new in this release:
You can now copy files in the background(as additional defer-loops) within your script, while you do other stuff in your main defer-loops.
You can set a buffer-size, which means, how much shall be copied per defer-cycle to balance between transfer-speed and possible Reaper-GUI-lags.
This allows you to convert a time in seconds to measures. I've used it in one script to set pre-roll(which only accepts measures) to a length in seconds.
RenderCodes for FFMPEG 4.1.3 on Windows
If you've installed FFMPEG 4.1.3 in your Reaper-installation, you have additional output-render-formats available. I've added docs for these renderstring-settings now as well.
Updated docs, examplescripts and bugfixes
Has now 1200 functions, with 54 new ones
new in this release:
Theme Parameter Access and monitoring script
Since Reaper 6, Cockos added the option of influencing a theme via so called theme-parameters. One such example is WhiteTie's Default Reaper6-Theme, which can be influenced via the theme-adjuster.
And here's the thing: this can not only be influenced, it can also be programmed.
So if you wanted to write scripts, who automatically adjust things without having to use the theme-adjuster, by using GetAllThemeLayoutParameters, ApplyAllThemeLayoutParameters, GetAllThemeLayoutParameters, GetThemeParameterIndexByDescription, GetThemeParameterIndexByName, SetThemeParameterIndexByDescription and SetThemeParameterIndexByName.
And if you want to know, which theme-parameters can be set and which values are the right ones, the developer-package includes now a Theme-Parameter monitoring script.
With that, you can see altered parameters(in Reaper's default v6 theme, for instance) and use the aforementioned functions to influence them accordingly.
Just run the "Script: ultraschall_Add_Developertools_To_Reaper.lua"-script after installing the update and there you have it.
One huge step into theme-customization...
Since Reaper has metadata-export-capabilities now, I've added nice and handy functions to get and set them, including docs and everything.
The rendering-functions also allow now switching on the metadata-embedding, so there's no excuse anymore to not use it.
This is probably useful for translators among you. I wrote a script, which compares two ReaperLangPack-files and returns the differences between the two into the clipboard.
That way you can compare the most recent official LangPack with a former one and can see immediately, what has been added/altered and into where, so you can update your translation accordingly.
Just run the "Script: ultraschall_Add_Developertools_To_Reaper.lua"-script after installing the update and there you have it.
When working with envelopes, especially when scripting, you can not really work with envelopes, unless they are activated. Funny enough: there's no "Activate"Envelope"-function in Reaper's own API.
So I tried to find ways around it.
With ActivateEnvelope(good for send-envelopes), ActivateTrackPanEnv, ActivateTrackPreFXPanEnv, ActivateTrackPreFXVolumeEnv, ActivateTrackTrimVolumeEnv, ActivateTrackVolumeEnv you can activate most of the most important envelopes and therefore script them.
Some are still missing, so I hope, I can add the missing ones too...
It has been requested in the feature-request subforum and the general-forum: functions for the trackmanager.
Thing is, it is quite useful, but there are simply no actions available for it, even though having shortcuts set to some of the basics can be very handy.
So I added TrackManager_ClearFilter, TrackManager_OpenClose, TrackManager_ShowAll, TrackManager_SelectionFromProject, TrackManager_SelectionFromList, TrackManager_SetFilter who allow you to script many of the ui-elements of the track manager.
Lokasenna's Gui Lib v2
now part of Ultraschall-API. Just run the function Lokasenna_LoadGuiLib_v2, which loads the GUI-Lib version deployed with Ultraschall-API including all its classes and the rest is the same as you are used to.
There's nothing to worry, if you've already installed Lokasenna's GuiLib v2, as the version I deploy is independent of it.
So you can safely use both on one system.
Ignore-Audio checkbox of video-items
This is requested from time to time again, so I finally added it: the possibility to set the "ignore audio"-checkbox of a video-item.
GetItem_Video_IgnoreAudio and SetItem_Video_IgnoreAudio are the functions of your choice.
Setting Aliasnames for FX-plugins
Not available in the regular API, but in Ultraschall-API. This has been requested shortly before this release, a way to set the alternative/alias name of track and item-fx.
A demofile US_Api_Examples_SetAliasNamesOfFX-Plugins.lua shows, what you can do with it...
Allows setting the timeunit of the transportfield, the ruler and the alternative ruler. Good for toggling through-actions...
ResizeJPG, ConvertPNG2JPG and ConvertJPG2PNG give you more control over managing different image-files.
Bugfixes and other stuff
For rendering, FXChains(as requested), updated nomenclature of functions, SLEM allows now getting more than just the last error-message, etc, etc
Has now 1146 functions, with 17 new ones
new in this release:
Video window-Toggle Fullscreen
You can now toggle the video-window fullscreen/non-fullscreen via VideoWindow_FullScreenToggle.
Wasn't possible until now: activation and deactivation of Mute-Envelopes, as otherwise you cannot write to them.
MuteActions more stable
They should now set mute-envelope-points properly, no matter of mute-env-armstate and/or automation-mode.
Reimplemented, so it shows only the diff-lines now.
You can have multiple benchmark-slots, so benchmarking multiple values at the same time is now possible.
That way, you can benchmark the whole script and individual functions in one go.
Item Buttons can be now toggled
Now, you can toggle the buttons shown at the top of the MediaItem, like mute, FX, Envelopes, etc. Change them in one go, to have different "profiles" of MediaItem-buttons, that reflect the usecases of your different projects.
PreventUIRefresh and RestoreUIRefresh Like Reaper's own PreventUIRefresh, but prevents accidental misuse of its counter, as the counting up is done by PreventUIRefresh and the "reset" of a
PreventUIRefresh can be undone by RestoreUIRefresh.
When using RestoreUIRefresh(true), all ultraschall.PreventUIRefresh-calls are reset, so the user-interface of Reaper is useable again.
bugfixes and readdition of accidentally deleted function..oops ;)
Has now 1129 functions, with 18 new ones
new in this release:
You can get all automation-items as well as deleting the ones you want to delete.
That's right, you can now safely delete one programmatically!
Support now the new rendering options of Reaper 6.10: embedding Take markers as well as Do not render files that are likely silent.
Note: Reaper 6.10 has a bug, which prevents simultaneously from setting Add to Project and Do not render files likely silent-checkboxes of the Render to File-dialog. Fixed in later versions of Reaper.
Allows you to set a track as last touched, which wasn't possible before.
Sets the trackheight of a track to any height you like, including heights not allowed by the theme.
That way, you can set the trackheight to e.g. 1px, allowing you better organisation of your arrangeview's tracks.
Speaking of trackheight, this function collapses tracks to the minimum height allowed by the currently selected theme.
Call it frequently when having opened your gfx-window, and it will return drag'n'dropped files as well as the dropping-position within the gfx.init-window. No need to fiddle it out by yourself.
Returns all selected entries from the opened actionlist, including Action Command Ids, texts, etc.
Kudos to Edgemeal, who wrote the initial version of it.
Already implemented for markers and regions, I added it for time-signature-markers as well.
Returns, if a time-signature-maker is at a certain position.
and more plus bugfixes
Kudos to Lokasenna and to Xenakios. Hope you both return at some point to the Reaper-community.
Has now 1111 functions, with 32 new ones
This is the last beta-release for the Ultraschall-API4.00 and the feature-freeze-version. Until the final one, I will only fix bugs.
new in this release:
You can render now loops, including so called "wet-loops" which are loops, who include reverb and other such effects.
For them to be renderable properly, they need to "build up" the effects first until it sounds right.
Render_Loop does exactly that with 2-pass-rendering. The first one is the part, which includes the loop itself+the effects-buildup.
So it renders the part of the project until the reverb is build up fully+the actual part to be looped.
The second pass will cut the actual loop out of the first-pass-render and put it where you want it to be.
You can also influence the fadein/out time and style of the second-pass-rendering, so you can avoid clickings and pops due harsh cuts at the beginning or the end of a loop.
Secondary Rendering Support
This is so hot, it only exists(yet) in pre-releases of Reaper. You can set a secondary render-format. And if you render your project, it will render out into both files.
That means, you can render your project as WAV+MP3 at the same time.
And all rendering-functions of Ultraschall-API support that new feature, including the current project, projectfiles, render-presets.
Marker-functions and Guids
All marker/region-functions return now the guid of the marker/region as well. Which is really nice for storing additional metadata for markers/regions.
You can also request the markers/regions by guid now.
You can read now all envelope-states available. Setting will come soon as well.
Allows you now to center the window by setting x and/or y-position to nil
Tired of copying your files around when you just want to move them? Or folders? Behold: MoveFileOrFolder moves files and folders for you.
This speeds up moving files around in Lua by magnitudes.
FXStateChunks and RFXChainFiles
You can load/store FXStateChunks from/to RFXChainFiles, which are the FX-Chain-files you can save within the FX-Chain-window.
Capturing Screen and Windows
You can now capture screens and windows for screenshots(CaptureScreenAreaAsPNG and CaptureWindowAsPNG).
Thanks to edgemeal for that.
returns the width of the TrackControlPanel.
More and bugfixes
as usual ;)
Note: Ultraschall-API needs now Reaper 6.02 or higher. Please update to Reaper 6. It's worth it!
Has now 1079 functions, with 20 new ones and 23 deprecated ones removed
new in this release:
Improved Defer Management
Ultraschall.Defer allows you now to set and get the timer-settings of a given ultraschall.Defer-cycle.
You can even do this from the outside of the deferred script!
You can also protect now ultraschall.Defer-cycles from being stopped from the outside.
The RenderPreset-functions do work again, after some changes in the way Reaper stores render-presets since Reaper 6.02.
They also allow you to use: preset-names with spaces. (I know, this should have been in there from the beginning... ;) )
Is now fully functional. That means, if you call this function in every defer-cycle of a script, you can actually monitor clicked and dragged MediaItems.
This will open up new ways of editing and item-manipulation, like RippleDrag, etc.
They can now be counted, added, removed and gotten. Means: I added the missing functions for working with them, so you can fully work with FXStateChunks now.
XRaym will love that :D
unlike Reaper's own API-function GetProjectLength, this one returns the end of the last itemedge, the last regionedge, marker and time-sigmarker
FromClip and ToClip allow you now to get/put strings from/to the clipboard without having to type gazillions of characters.
GetProject and GetTrackState-functions
I completely reworked most of them, so they will now return all values, even those, which I haven't put into the docs yet.
That means, if the devs add new values, you can retrieve them right away, without being dependent on me to add them.
Will do the same with the Set-functions in the future.
Has now 1082 functions, with 12 new ones
New in this release:
NOTE: There are some new features, who make use of Reaper v6-features. Please update soon, as Reaper 6 will be a requirement soon!
Speedup when loading US-API
I made a modules-system, which speeds up loading and initalization as well as memory-use of the Ultraschall-API by magnitudes.
This approach loads only the functions needed by your script(used to load all functions in earlier versions).
The loading is now about 86% faster and memoryuse is 56% less.
And what do you need to do to make use of the modules approach?
Well, nothing. The Ultraschall-API does it for you! (requested by many, so hope, this helps you a lot).
Reaper 6.02 added some new features, which gives a unique guid for a marker. This again, helped me adding a feature I wanted to have for a long time: Marker/Region Extstates. They work like regular ProjectExtStates, but have the benefit, that they allow saving additional key-value stores associated with a certain marker/region.
And even if you change the whole order of the markers, the extstates will still be attached to the marker of your choice.
Possible usecase: storing the render-format-settings as region-extstates for region-rendering or simply adding additional metadata to markers/regions, that are needed but would spam the markertitle shown in the arrangeview.
Experiment with it, you'll quickly get the idea and ideas for practical usecases!
Blitting an image centered
Sometimes, you want to blit an image into gfx-windows centered. Problem is: it's not easy to do. Until now, as I added the function GFX_BlitImageCentered, which does exactly that.
That means, you can pass to the function the position of the center of the image and change rotate/scale. This makes zooming in and out of images much more easier, as they stay at their position.
You can import and export now SRT-files for subtitles. This should allow you to use regions as subtitle-feature.
ConvertStringToBits and ConvertBitsToString
This can be helpful, if you have a string, which represents a binary-number: Just convert it with this function and voila, you can work with the bits themselves.
And if you need to do it the other direction, use ConvertBitsToString. That way, you can work easily on a bitlevel, if fiddling with bitshifting is too difficult for you.
Bugfixes with ArrangeViewSnapShots, Markers
Should now work like a charm.
Has now 1070 functions, with 41 new ones
New in this release:
Additional functions and features to improve handling, development, monitoring and debugging of events.
Fixed some bugs, that need startup-events to be readded again. Sorry for that.
like ultraschall.ShowLastErrorMessage() but faster to type. I should have added this much more earlier.
Now you can send easily Midi: notes, cc-messages, pc and pitchbends.
One Defer-function to rule them all. You can set, how often to run the defer-cycle and give it an identifier.
With that identifier, you can stop that specific defer-cycle from the outside!
Way better than killing all scripts with the action "ReaScript: Close all running reaScripts".
Puts out a message including linenumber and function, in which the PingMe-function was executed.
You can output the message in the ReaScript-console, as messagebox and into the clipboard, even retaining old clipboard-contents.
This can be used as simpler version of hooks to monitor internal behavior.
StateInspector supports gmem
You can monitor now gmem-states as well, which is handy for developers of JSFX and Video-Processor-related scripts.
Has now 1029 functions with 44 new ones! Yes, I crossed the thousand!
New in this release:
Killer Feature Time and long requested by many of you!
The EventManager allows you to run actions, when certain states occur/statechanges occur.
That way you can automatize running actions under certain circumstances without having to run your own defer-script for that.
Kudos to @fernsehmuell, who was essential in the initial designs of it!
Shows different Context-menus, like TrackInput, TrackPanel, TrackArea, TrackRouting, Ruler, MediaItem, Track/TakeEnvelope,
EnvelopePoint, EnvelopePoint for Automation Items, AutomationItems-contextmenu.
Reaper's own function ShowPopupMenu is quite difficult to use, so I made some, who make it easier.
Runs Luacode directly without having to create a script for it.
Runs Luacode as child-script directly without having to create a script for it.
returns projecttime at x-screenposition, which can be nice for mouse-editing-specific actions.
Like Lua's string.gsub(), this replaces a pattern within a string with a replacement string, but you can choose,
which one shall be replaced. And unlike string.gsub() only that one will be replaced, not the occurences after that.
GetItem_ClickState and GetTrackEnvelope_ClickState
Return, if a MediaItem/EnvelopePoint is currently clicked and hovered by the mouse. Could be used for some nice and handy things.
Sped up and returns now more attributes, like action-type(script, native, custom, extension), termination-state of scripts, consolidate-state for custom actions.
ConvertFunction_FromBase64String and ConvertFunction_ToBase64String
Convert a Lua-function to/from a BASE64-string. That way, you can exchange functions via extstates. Convert to Base64-string, put the string into an extstate,
read the string from the extstate and convert it back to a function.
Bugfixes and optimzations
Optimized and bugfixed tons of other stuff, thanks to many bugreports and a lot of feedback from many of you.
Big thanks for that :)
Has now 985 functions with 8 new ones!
IMPORTANT!: This is a massive critical bugfix release. About 60 functions returned wrong returnvalues in case of an error.
If you use any of the functions listed in Changes from Beta 2.76 to Beta 2.761, you should check, if your scripts still work.
This is totally my fault, as I had some of them wrong to begin with.
My apologies for any inconvenience.... :/
New in this release:
In case of errors, many functions returned wrong returnvalues or had faulty returnvalues stated in the docs. All of them are fixed now.
Please check, if your scripts use any of the functions listed in Changes for more details.
Hope this is the last time, stuff like that happened...
gets a full StateChunk of the current project(finally working!)
Now you can get all states of your project!
Get the HWND(GetMediaExplorerHWND), update the listview(UpdateMediaExplorer) and run an action, associated with the MediaExplorer-section(MediaExplorer_OnCommand).
Y-coordinates on Mac are different from the ones in Windows/Linux, meaning, pixel 0 is at the bottom, while Windows/Linux start on top.
This function converts the y-coordinates between these two coordinate-systems.
New version of Config-Vars-displayer-script
Shows changes with doubles without a problem now, is faster, uses the config-var-docs included with the API to get the currently accepted config-vars. I also improved the layout a bit.
Has now 977 functions with 42 new ones!
New in this release:
You can set/get/delete parameter-learning in Statechunks.
1) get a StateChunk
2) get its FXStateChunk using GetFXStateChunk
3) alter this FXStateChunk using the ParmLearn-functions
4) set this FXStateChunk using SetFXStateChunk
5) (re-)apply the final StateChunk to the Track/Item
You can localize your scripts using an external localize-file.
If that exists, ultraschall.Localize will convert your string into it's localized one, otherwise it uses it's original text.
long time on my list, functions for the DocEngine. With them, you can use my Reaper-internal-sourcefiles (.USDocML) and create your own conversions of them.
a function, which helps you to get the diff of an MediaItem since last time calling this function. Good for RippleDrag-features.
this adds MediaItems into the Render-Queued, either as single-queued or multiqueued-project-files(requested by Travesty)
allows now setting the length of the captions-fields.
No more cutting off of longer captions!(requested by Julian Sader)
More functions, more bugfixes, updated Reaper-docs, speedups
tagline inspired by a comment from _stevie_ ;)
!RenderMania Update! Has now 935 functions with 95 new ones!
Rendering - reworked Rendering completely; you can render the current project now directly, access render-presets and render-queues (thanks to Justin and Schwa for adding the features needed into Reaper)
Render-Format-strings - you can create all(!) renderformats available in Reaper as BASE64-encoded strings, as well as analyzing already BASE64-encoded renderstrings(this alone is 44 functions)
Parameter Learn - you can get all parameter learn, modulation and lfo-settings, as well as FXStateChunks who store that information, add/set/delete will come later (requested by TonE and Anton9)
ultraschall.MB - shows a messagebox and allows exchanging the texts of the buttons with your own texts
LoadFunctionFromExtState and StoreFunctionInExtState - lets you pass a Lua-function from one script to another using an extstate, no external files and loads and requires necessary
Docs - updated docs for Reaper 5.978, SWS 184.108.40.206, JS-extension 0.986
More Docs - when you've installed the API using ReaPack, actions will be added for opening the individual parts of the docs, like Reaper API(ReaScript, Video, WebRC), ConfigVars, Ultraschall-Concepts and FunctionsAPI. Type into the Actions-dialog-filter the words "ultraschall" and "help".
Example Scripts - when you've installed the API using ReaPack, new actions for registering and unregistering the example-scripts as well as opening the example-script-folder. Type into the Actions-dialog-filter the words "ultraschall" and "examples".
Even more about docs - docs for parameter-learn added(thanks to Anton9 for helping me with that) as well as many docs I had lying around(find them in the ResourceFolder/UserPlugins/ultraschall_api/Misc/misc_docs-folder)
CleanUp - removed junk and converted files into smaller fileformats(where applicable), so the API is now 20MB smaller
Many other helpful functions - HexString2Ascii2HexString, Get/Set Armstate of Envelopes, DeleteTracks_TrackString, Get/SetCheckboxState and more
Bugfixes - as usual ;)
If you find this helpful and use this, please consider donating to me at ultraschall.fm/danke (look for mespotine), paypal(firstname.lastname@example.org) or patreon.com/mespotine.
Might be a small donation for you, but a giant motivation leap for mankind(means: me) ;)
Has now 822 functions, with 22 new ones
Routing - sped up the routing-functions by magnitudes, who also allow now using TrackStateChunks which can be faster than Reaper's own API-functions
GFX_GetMouseCap - this allows you to get mouse-states in gfx-windows, including doubleclick and drag. Much easier than to code it yourself using gfx.mouse_cap.
ultraschall.GetUserInputs - like reaper.GetUserInputs BUT you can safely type commas into its inputfields!
Progressbar - you can code now your own progressbar, including optionally showing it in the ReaScript-console
Move Child-HWND relative within their Parent-HWND - if you don't want to deal with screen-positions when moving around gui-elements, use GetChildSizeWithinParentHWND and MoveChildWithinParentHWND
Vertical Scroll - works now like a charm
Improved Changelog - will be much more readable for this and future releases
Bugfixes and many more.
Has now 800 functions, with 20 new ones
New HWNDs to get, like Render Queue, Preferences, Project Settings and more
