Hardware MIDI controllers
Any Generic MIDI controller with at least 8 faders or knobs capable of sending CC messages with absolute values (0-127),
at least 20 two-state buttons capable of sending a separate note or CC message for button press and release (often called “momentary” button mode); or at least 20 midi keys; or any combination of 20 buttons/keys. You may be able to get by with fewer buttons or keys, but you might not have access to some core LC/MC functionality (depending on the host application). Up to four controllers of any type may be merged to emulate each single LC/MC, to provide sufficient controls.
Any of the following hardware MIDI controllers, for which LC Xmu provides a dedicated controller module offering predefined function mapping and extended features:
- Behringer BCR2000
- Doepfer Pocket Dial
- Fostex VM200
- JL Cooper CS-10
- Korg microKONTROL / KONTROL49
- Mackie Control or hardware emulations
- Novation Remote / XStation (non-SL) series
See controllers for a summary of each controller module’s capabilities.
LC Xmu supports host applications capable of communicating with a Logic Control or Mackie control through a virtual CoreMIDI port. LC Xmu provides predefined host support for the following host applications:
- Ableton Live 5.0 or higher
- Apple Final Cut Pro 5.0 or higher
- Apple Soundtrack Pro 1.0 or higher
- Apple/Emagic Logic Audio/Gold/Platinum/Express/Pro 5.3 or higher
- Propellerheads Reason 3.0 or higher
- RME TotalMix 2.01 or higher
- Steinberg Cubase SX/Nuendo 3.0 or higher
Support for additional LC/MC-aware applications may be added by duplicating and editing the supplied host definitions, which are folders containg plain text files, located inside the LC Xmu application package.
