Hi everyone and welcome me here.
So I am thinking to build a huge project, replicating all my favorite gear I use for music production.
The idea is to make midi controllers 1 on 1 of the most used plugins I have, those are emulations of real hardwares, eqs compressors etc.
In the eq world things are really easy, few pots and maybe a switch and you have that I.e. Pultec controller.
Where i have my questions are in compressors area and most specifically in the Vu meters.
As you may know, every hardware compressor has a Vu meter to represent the in out signal level and the gain reduction.
My question are:
1.is there any way to make this work in MIDI world?
2.Is it possible the Vu meter to give me readings like those I get in my screen?
3.Can you even connect an analog Vu meter to read MIDI signals? (Not leds)
Would love to hear from the experts on this.
