Connecting Eigenharp Controllers to Audio Unit Parameters within EigenD


Audio Units in the EigenD software have a set of generic parameter inputs, Parameter 1 through Parameter 16. The routing of these can be controlled by a tick box routing grid controlled on the AU GUI, made available by clicking on the button in the far right of the toolbar:

The parameters of the AU are listed in the left hand column, and the numbers in columns at top represent Belcanto generic parameter inputs Parameter 1 through 16. In the pico setup, the connections for the audio unit instruments (Audio Unit 1 & 2 in the Quick Reference Guide) are as follows:

  • Strip controller -> Parameter 1
  • Breath controller -> Parameter 2
  • Key pressure -> Parameter 3
  • Key roll -> Parameter 4
  • Key yaw -> Parameter 5
  • Absolute strip position -> Parameter 6

Connections to audio unit effects on sends (Audio unit FX 1 & 2 in the Quick Reference Guide) are as follows:

  • Keyboard strip position -> Parameter 1
  • Keyboard breath output -> Parameter 2
  • Keyboard absolute strip position -> Parameter 3

Connections to Inline FX 1 through 7 are as follows:

  • Strip controller -> Parameter 1
  • Breath controller -> Parameter 2
  • Key pressure -> Parameter 3
  • Key roll -> Parameter 4
  • Key yaw -> Parameter 5
  • Absolute strip position -> Parameter 6

So to give an example of how this works, if you wanted to connect the strip controller ('Parameter 1') to pitch bend, and the breath controller ('Parameter 2') to the mod wheel, this is what the table would look like:

So 1 is ticked next to Bend (0-1) and 2 is ticked next to Mod (0-1).

The connections for Audio Units in the Factory Alpha Setups are as follows:

  • Strip controller 1 relative → Parameter 1
  • Strip controller 2 relative → Parameter 2
  • Breath (blow) → Parameter 3
  • Breath (suck) → Parameter 4
  • Key pressure → Parameter 5
  • Key roll → Parameter 6
  • Key yaw → Parameter 7
  • Pedal 1 → Parameter 8
  • Pedal 2 → Parameter 9
  • Strip controller 1 absolute → Parameter 10
  • Strip controller 2 absolute → Parameter 11
