  • Using ProControl/Control|24 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 ProControl/Control|24.

    Metering in Pro Tools with ProControl/Control|24

    HUI metering uses just 12 segments where ProControl/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.)
