Default Parameter labels question

Is the knob parameter labels for the EQ and dynamics modes editable for developers or are they fixed?

I have noticed that many plugins often parameters labels that don't make any sense, especially in dynamics mode.
Like mix wet/dry on a compressor can be labeled "LPFFreq"on the S6.

Is this a plugin developer error or is it a limitation from Avid that it's not possible for developers to set their own labels?

Default Re: Parameter labels question


There are 2 special function views on S6 - EQ and DYNAMICS. EQ is always associated with a Magenta color while DYNAMICS is identified by a Green color. These modes are in addition to the standard INSERTS and Insert Parameters which is displayed on the surface in a Teal color.

Here's a screen grab from the AAX Pagetable editor showing the dedicated DYN mapping for the plug-in Pro Compressor from Avid:

The parameters shown under Parameter Name are the parameters from the plug-in mapped to the available values labeled Function which are part of the dedicated DYN set. For example, since there is no dedicated Wet/Dry or Mix parameter in the DYN set, parameter Dry Mix was alternately assigned to the knob which otherwise would control Low Pass Frequency. Obviously there are many parameters that line up perfectly such as Threshold, Ratio, Attack, Release, etc.

Because there is some variance between the parameters contained within different dynamics plug-ins, manufactures can pick and choose how to use the standard DYN set. Again, this is in addition to the standard INSERTS parameters mode which will always show all parameters, just not necessarily in a predictable arrangement.
