Hi. I have been enjoying GPO for something like two months now, im very happy with it. But sometimes i miss to be able to see on the kontakt player keyboard ONLY the keys of the current selected instrument (you know, all are mixed in the same display). And also i miss that the values of the knobs only updates trough mouse click, not by the midi CCs. Not so big deal, but i had some time this weekend and tryed to make something with the well known synthedit plugin maker.
Really, i dont know a word about programming or graphic design, but found that proggie not so difficult to understand, and with some patience i achieve something, but not all my purposes yet. So, i want to share with you my idea, feel free to criticize or help me. (be aware that test plugins also implies some risk)
The point: "GPOMonitor" (how i called it, i can change it name if is it an issue) is basically a group of 8 keyboards, one for each channel, that make the keys movements while receiving midi data. I want to add knobs with the values and colour the KS keys, but that is too much for me at the moment. But if you want to give it a try, here it is:

and here an screenshot of it working in Tracktion:
Well, i have lot of ideas for make it more usefull and informative, but really, i dont have too much knowledge, so, i believe that with some time and patience i will improve it (or if anyone see is a good idea, and can make it better, i will be glad! i can upload the source code of it too)
It`s working well here, i tested it in Tracktion and VSThost. Like any VST plugin, you need to put it on your vst folder, and ask to your host to re-scan it. You must put it BEFORE GPO in the FX chain. It Receives the midi data, move the keys in the keyboard, and re-send the midi data without touch nothing. By the moment too, pressing the on-screen keyboard dont do nothing, it only display the midi data it receives.
BTW, im not related with Gary Garritan in any way, so if it gives you problems, blame only to me.
