uiXYSurface properties

Firstly many thanks Atom for Ctrlr. Really am enjoying being able to knock up VST’s to control my equipment. Much appreciated.

AS a noob, I am struggling to get to the properties and methods for uiXYSurface. I have tried the following but cannot get to the X and Y modulator methods/properties for this component:

mod = panel:getModulatorByName(“xyMod1”)

com = mod:getComponent()

what (mod)

what (com)

Ultimatley I want to be able to set X and Y coords as part of a modulation sequencer using a timer (timer looks straightforward) as I already have combo boxes nicely linked to the X and Y axis to control two parameters at a time .

Can anyone please tell me how can i get to retrieve and set these values for this class/component?

Having trouble connecting to my Korg dw-8000

I have installed ctrlr as well as the panel for the DW. I have the DW plugged into my computer using a midi to USB adapter. The computer recognizes the adapter but I can’t get ctrlr to interact with the DW.

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.


Korg Volca Bass Midi Remote

Korg Volca Bass Midi Remote:

The „Korg Volca Bass“ parameters can be automated, they can be stored in the DAW Song.

With the X-Y-Pad any controller can be selected and controlled.

The hidden parameter “SlideTime”, „Expression” and “Gate Time” can be changed using the “Korg Volta Bass Midi Remote”, which are not present on the Korg Volca Bass surface.

About the keyboard, notes can be entered with Accent, which is important for a typical TB 303 sound.

Korg 707 setup

Has anyone successfully implemented the Korg 707 panel? Is it possible for the parameters of the 707 to be controlled through SysEx and if so, how does one set the synth up to receive this info?

There is indication on the forum that the panel works but is its functionality limited to loading/dumping patches? I’m hoping to control the parameters of the synth through ctrlr standalone to avoid relying on the inbuilt 707 interface.

The ctrlr midi monitor seems to indicate that info is being sent and received between my midi interface and the synth, but I am unable to load patches or control any parameters.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

CTRLR with Logic 9 Express

Hi there,

did anyone manage to get CTRLR fully running with Logic (express) 9? I simply cannot manage to send midi from the CTRLR au plug-in (used in a software instrument track) to my synth (Roland JX-8P). I read online that it is generally not possible for au software instruments to send midi… So how does it work? I would be very grateful for a step-by-step description…

The stand alone version works, but I cannot automate it within Logic.

Everything else seems to work too.



dropdown/button of sysex

Hello everyone,

i want to make a panel element for switching effects on roland mc909 via sysex.

these are alot of completely different sysex commands, per effect, so not something described in steps of value 0-127.

the purpose should be a knob/dropdown in ctrlr which can be mapped/controlled with cc to ctrlrVST from within a host


cc parameter:0-10,parameter 10-20,parameter 20,30,….->ctrlrVST->sysexA,SysexB,SysexC,…


whats the best panel element for this? how to configure multible sysex?



Using VST plugin?

Can someone explain to me how exactly this is supposed to work?
I don’t really get it because first of all the ctrlr dll isn’t recognized in Cubase (5.5) but secondly I don’t really understand what kind of plugin this would be, because if it were a real VST instrument you wouldn’t be able to record the real instrument (because VSTis are inside of the sequencer) so is it kind of a Midi plugin?
