V-Control Pro

V-Control Pro

V-Control Pro lets you get hands-on control of your audio and video projects using your iPad or iPad mini at a fraction of the cost of hardware surfaces. And because it uses Wi-Fi, you can use it from almost anywhere. Adjust the mix from your sofa or from anywhere in a stadium.

V-Control Pro is the most popular professional control surface in the world. It is easy to set up, reliable, and loaded with professional features. It uses high performance networking for fast, smooth, and accurate response.

The V-Window feature will amaze you. Just select a plug-in window such as an EQ and control it with a single touch.

 

Advanced Multi-Touch Control for iPad & iPad mini

 

V-Control Pro provides a fully-featured, multi-touch control surface for top media apps at a really affordable price. V-Control Pro uses WiFi to control transport, editing, and mixing functions.V-Control Pro includes advanced control of sends, automation, groups, auditioning, plug-ins, jog/scrub/shuttle, I/O assignment, and other controls within an easy-to-use interface. V-Control can be used simultaneous with Ethernet controllers used by Pro Tools – see restrictions at bottom of page.

 

V-Control Pro is compatible with all versions of iPad including the latest version which supports the new hi-res retina display. V-Control Pro will also work with the new iPad mini which has the same screen resolution as the earlier iPads.

Get In Touch with Pro Tools, Cubase, Logic Pro And All Your Favorite Apps on Mac or PC

 

V-Control can connect to both Mac and PC and includes a host of app skins for top media applications such as Audition, Cubase, Digital Performer, Final Cut Pro 7, Live, Logic Pro, MIO Console, Pro Tools, Media Composer, Reaper, Reason, Studio One, SONAR and Tracktion.

Each App skin includes faders, pans, mute and solo for mixing, high res metering, transport controls, as well as dedicated keys specifically designed for that app to make the task of creating easier and faster.

 

New V-Window Takes Control to a New Level

 

The amazing new V-Window feature let’s you bring up any open window onto the iPad for intuitive touch control.

V-Window allows a Pro Tools window such as an Eleven amp, for example, to display and be controlled from the iPad while still retaining transport controls at the bottom of the iPad screen. This opens up a host of remote control possibilities such as using the iPad in an overdub booth, or next to a keyboard controller, or on a music stand while playing guitar.

 

Pro Fader Features For The Ultimate Mix

 

Multi-touch allows for adjustment of multiple moving faders simultaneously and automation mode switching is available for each fader for fast and intuitive mixing. Also get fast access to pans and aux sends. Flip faders to sends. Double tap the fader to return to zero.

Control sessions of any size. Simply two-finger-swipe the iPad to navigate left or right to the previous/next group of 8 tracks or single-finger-swipe to move one fader at a time.

 

Serious Edit Functions for Faster Creativity

 

There is also a full-featured “editing commands” window in most skins with a ton of keys specific to that application that include edit commands, memory locators, zoom tools, window commands and extra controls such as scrub and shuttle.

Each skin is different to match features in each application which means that V-Control is tailored to get the most out your favorite app.

V-Control Pro with Pro Tools and a D-Command / C24 / Pro Control

 

V-Control will operate with these control surfaces with some limitations.

Pro Tools supports using V-Control Pro simultaneous with an ethernet controller such as D-Command, C24, and Pro Control. But the two controllers are always banked to the same channels and V-Control Pro is banked to the left eight channels of the ethernet controller. Also, the plug-in editing in V-Control Pro will be disabled. Also, Pro Tools does not transmit metering to V-Control. Avid has verified that Pro Tools does not send metering to secondary controllers.

We urge you to go to http://protools.ideascale.com/. Search for “Enable Metering In Second Controller” and vote to get Avid to fix this. Also, Control 24 only allows on additional MIDI peripheral to be used simultaneous. This means you can either set V-Control as one HUI controller or one surround pan controller. To make V-Control Pro operate as an independent controller you can temporarily disable the ethernet controller in Pro Tools.
