First, setup your controller on screen
The first thing you want to do is draw your MIDI controller on your screen, which will simplify its use within the software. To make this work, a simple white square with faders and buttons can be enough. However, you can make the screen representation of your controller closer to reality by pasting pictures of it. The EasyConsole tool allows you to do that. You will be able to draw your controller and then use it with Sunlite Suite in just a few minutes.
Defining the background and adding images
It is very easy to create an accurate screen controller following a picture of an actual MIDI board. The associated picture must be located in the "CSL" directory of the installation folder, in BMP format. The "Bitmap" section of the "Properties" window allows you to select an image from this "CSL" folder, which you can use as a background to create an accurate representation of your MIDI controller. If you wish to add an image to your controller, select the "Picture control" tool and insert a new picture. Then, you will be able to resize this picture, change its position, or even replace it using the 'Properties" window.
Defining the controls : buttons, faders...
There are 4 types of controls available : horizontal and vertical sliders, rotating and regular buttons. These controls are available from the "Toolbox" window. Select the desired control from the toolbox and then click on your project to insert a new control. Using the "Properties" window you can, for example, move, resize or change the background image. You can also write labels on any control to clearly see its function within the Sunlite Suite software.
