  • Using V-Window with a Control Surface

    With V-Control Pro and the V-Window feature, users can instantly control any plug-ins or controls on screen through their control surface's channel strip with a touch of a button.

    To activate V-Window, press the Master Faders button on most surfaces. For DAWs with a dedicated Master Fader control, the Master Fader will be required to be pressed multiple times to cycle to V-Window Mode.

    V-Window Modes:

    When V-Window is active, Press the Mute button on the Channel strip with V-Window to cycle between the different modes. The different modes available are:

    While in V-Window Mode, pressing the Solo button will pin the mouse location and revert to that location any time the fader is touched. Once the fader is released, the mouse is also returned to that pin position. This way it is very easy to pin a parameter and instantly control it without having to worry with the mouse cursor is on the screen.

    Use the Select button while in V-Window mode to reset the fader position.

  • Using MIDI Mode with a Control Surface

    With V-Control Pro, users can enable MIDI Mode on their control surface with the touch of a button. MIDI Mode converts the surfaces faders, knobs, and buttons into assignable MIDI Controls that can be mapped in the DAW.

    Control|24 Functions with Pro Tools

    V-Control Pro uses the HUI protocol to communicate with Pro Tools so there are some differences to take into account when using Control|24.

    Press the Master Fader button to enable the V-Window feature for the last fader on the surface. Simply hover the mouse over the parameter you want to control. When you touch and move the fader, the mouse is remotely controlled to click and drag for precise control.

    Metering in Pro Tools with Control|24

    HUI metering uses just 12 segments where Control|24 has 15 segments so V-Control Pro has to adapt 12 to 15. HUI metering behaves differently for Pro Tools 11 and later than it did with previous versions of Pro Tools. Peak hold is never active no matter what the Pro Tools metering preferences are set to. Also, clip indication is only used for record-enabled tracks that are metering audio input. This is probably because of the newer mixer's headroom where audio does not clip (even though the Mixer window does indicate a clip.)
