Working with VMM Description files

  • How to launch Virtual Midi Mixer

    If you run Virtual Midi Mixer (without a command-line parameter) a file open dialog will appear. In this dialog you can select a VMM file that you want to open. Virtual Midi Mixer also supports command-line parameters. If you use a command-line parameter to launch Virtual Midi Mixer (vmmixer.exe example.vmm or drop a VMM file on the Virtual Midi Mixer icon) the program won't show a file open dialog and it will load the VMM file directly.

  • The basics of VMM Description files

    Virtual Midi Mixer uses a VMM Description file to determine which controller objects should be used and what properties these objects have. A VMM Description file has the following syntax:
