I definitely want the possibility to set automation states by OSC.
I recently submitted a PR on github, to set the gain automation state.
Paul then said it should be more generic like
/ardour/route/automation_state "gain" "w"
thus allowing for
/ardour/route/automation_state RID "solo" "m"
/ardour/route/automation_state RID "mute" "t"
I implemented this against 4.7 in my local installation, as I really need this
I haven't submitted a new PR because I want to wait until things get settled
after the vca2 merge.
BTW: I looked into the vca2 branch and admittedly I don't understand what it
is about. Is there some "white-paper" or some archived discussion on it, so
that I can get to know what is the actual goal of vca2?
