Summary0008932: midnam Values not taken into account for automation ranges
DescriptionOn a MIDI track, I set it to Novation A Station and add an automation on controller 3 (Arp Pattern). I then get a slider that goes from 0 to 127.

Looking at the matching MIDNAM file (shipped with Ardour), I see that the values are supposed to be between 0 and 5. Ardour ignores that range.

The 6 values also have names in a ValueNameList, but those aren’t displayed anywhere, as far I can see. Is this also ignored?
TagsNo tags attached.

Ardour only uses Midnam for annotation, not to constrain parameter-ranges.
Looking at the source-code, the value-names should be displayed in the verbose cursor (when hovering over an automation point).

I agree that the value-names should ideally also be displayed on the Fader-Control itself.

I am unsure about constraining the range (and showing it as dropdown). One can change the name-document on the fly and CCs range is not really constrained.
