AWESOME! I just got this and it's an elegant implementation. I like how you ADDED VALUE with the random button to get more surprises out of RC-20, woohoo!

Some thoughts:

(1) I know you noted "When changing parameter directly in the Plugin they will not change inside the Wrapper" but is there ANY way to easier match the settings from RC-20 presets onto the wrapper? I have templates I want available, without having to manually re-create them. The current one-way settings loading limits its usefulness.

(2) How about making the Magnitude slider more PROMINENT in the UI? Even highlighting it a bit differently ? it's the most important meta-control and kind of hard to see on a dark skin!

(3) It'd be nice to keep the current effect highlighted after you click it, I notice it shows detailed parameters in the middle but the highlight disappears from the effect name's button after you release the mouse button.

(4) "Rand" button does not affect individual effects' Mix or the Tape > Dropout, and I don't know if that's intentional.

I encourage you to make more wrappers! One in the same vein for Wavesfactory Cassette would be great, hint hint.

Thanks a lot for your feedback. I really appreciate it!

(1) Im not sure if this is possible or how complicated it would be. I will look into it.
Would be nice to have controls in both ways for sure.

(2) What theme do you use? looks good in mine but maybe I could give the magnitude slider a different background or something?

(3) Oh yeah that would be possible. I?ll think about it.

(4) First I had everything controllable with random but the dropout was kind of too much so I removed it. Same for mix, I felt random was more usable with it always on 100%.

Wavesfactory Cassette looks good. Perfect for a wrapper. I don?t own it but I could do a wrapper with the demo. Thank you for the recommendation.

@plusma Thanks for your answers, I appreciate the timely clarity.

(2) I'm using the Under2024 theme from , yes a different background could contrast more!

(4) That makes sense, good to know that's intended.

Wavesfactory Cassette is capable of a wide variety of tapey lo-fi FX too and goes much further on the "melting tape being baked in the sun", it's a great complement to RC-20. I like to have the surprise of discovering new possibilities at the click of a button.

One more suggestion for now: how about the ability to set the STRENGTH of randomization? So if I'm in the neighborhood of getting close to something I like, I can explore related possibilities. Some UIs have a different "Mutate" button that's more mild.
