Supported controllers

LC Xmu offers support for a wide range of generic MIDI controller hardware, as well as dedicated controller modules supporting various controller-specific features such as harware LCD screens, LEDs, motorfaders and true endless encoders. For in-depth discussion of each controller’s setup and implementation in LC Xmu, see the LC Xmu manual included with the downloadable demo.

Behringer BCR2000

This input module supports the Behringer BCR2000’s endless encoders’ relative mode, for jump-free operation without requiring soft takeover. The LC/MC v-pot “acceleration” is emulated, allowing finer or coarser control as the encoder is turned faster. Encoders may be assigned to emulated LC/MC Xmu faders, v-pots, or jogwheel. Feedback is supplied to the BCR2000 button LEDs and encoder LED-rings.

CM Labs MotorMix

Support for the CM Labs MotorMix is in development. Please contact Opus Locus if you wish to beta test.

Doepfer Pocket Dial

The Doepfer Pocket Dial module uses preset 86, allowing the Pocket Dial's endless encoders to operate in relative mode for jump-free control, without requiring soft takeover or MIDI feedback to the controller.

Fostex VM200

The VM200’s endless encoders operate in relative mode for jump-free control without requiring soft takeover. The LC/MC v-pot “acceleration” is emulated, allowing finer or coarser control as the encoder is turned faster. Motorfader feedback is supported. Most of the VM200’s buttons are supported for function mapping (including grey function buttons, not just the channel buttons), and LED feedback is supported for 19 of the VM200 button LEDs. The VM200 data wheel is supported.

Generic controller

This controller module may be used for any controller capable of sending standard 7-bit MIDI note or CC messages, using a different note or CC number for each control. Examples may include various M-Audio, Edirol, Evolution and Kenton keyboards and controllers, and various Yamaha, Tascam, and Korg digital mixers, etc.

If your specific controller is not listed among the controller menu choices, does not offer hardware emulation of one of those choices, and does not accept MIDI feedback for motorfaders and/or LEDs, you should try Generic controller.

Generic feedback

The Generic feedback module may be used for any feedback-capable controller sending standard 7-bit MIDI note or CC messages, using a different note or CC number for each control. Examples include various Yamaha, Tascam, Behringer and Fostex digital mixers, the Behringer BCF2000, etc.

If your specific controller is not listed among the controller menu choices, does not offer hardware emulation of one of those choices, and can make use of feedback for motorfaders and/or LEDs, you should try Generic feedback.

Generic MIDI mixer

The Generic MIDI mixer module may be used for any controller sending multiple channels of fixed CC messages (for example eight channels of CC7/CC10 volume/pan on MIDI channels 1-8), where you cannot reassign the controller to send a different CC number for each control. Examples include the JL Cooper Faderbaby. Feedback is not currently supported.

JL Cooper CS-10

This controller module provides support for the CS-10’s endless wheel encoder, and for feedback to the various CS-10 LEDs.

Korg KONTROL

The Korg KONTROL module supports “Native Korg Mode” for both the Korg microKONTROL and the Korg KONTROL49. The true endless encoders operate in relative mode, for jump-free operation without requiring soft takeover.

Realtime LCD feedback is provided to the KONTROL’s nine LCD screens, for instant reference to the currently-controlled parameter names and values on the hardware. Feedback to the KONTROL’s sixteen pad LEDs and six button LEDs is provided, which are lit or unlit according to the current emulated LC/MC control state.

Full bypass operation is provided for all controls (including the joystick, modwheel and pedal), allowing the pads to pass through as notes, and other controls as CCs. In bypass mode the keyboard MIDI channel may be changed and program/bank message sent. LC Xmu also allows the KONTROL to exit and re-enter native mode, so you can use regular MIDI “scenes” with the host application.

Mackie Control

LC Xmu can be used to manage a real Mackie Control, for on-the-fly host-switching with saved states and no conflict, control remapping, controller splitting and generic user-configurable note/CC passthrough. Full 2-way communication is supported, including Bars/SMPTE display, signal LEDs and metering.

Any controller that emulates a Mackie Control in hardware may be used with this module, for example Behringer BCF2000, Tascam US-/FW-/DM- series, etc. The original Logic Control may be used in Mackie Control mode with firmware 1.02.

Mackie HUI and Baby HUI

Support for the Mackie HUI and Baby HUI (or hardware mixers that can emulate a HUI or Baby HUI) is in development. Please contact Opus Locus if you wish to beta test.

Novation Remote

The Novation Remote module supports the Remote / XStation series and variations (excluding the SL series). The endless encoders operate in relative mode for jump-free control without requiring soft takeover. LC/MC v-pot “acceleration” is emulated, allowing finer or coarser control as the encoder is turned faster.

Peavy StudioMix

Support for the Peavey StudioMix is in development. Please contact Opus Locus if you wish to beta test.
