How to use EasyConsole
First of all, make sure that the MIDI function is enabled in the starting parameters window. Open the window from the "Controller" menu and go the the "Audio/Midi" tab to activate the function.
Assigning the MIDI controller to the software is very simple. Each button or fader must be assigned independently. There are two ways to assign to assign a button: the regular and the quick method.
Once this window is opened and if the "Auto setup MIDI" option is activated, turn on the corresponding fader or button on your controller and it will be automatically assigned. Repeat the operation for all controls. Do not forget to save the configuration by clicking with the right button of the mouse on the title bar and selecting "Save" from the menu.
These are not new functions and are explained in numerous chapters throughout this manual. You can control functions like SPEED, DIMMER or SIZE of your effects. You can also select pages or buttons, freeze the outputs, assign the DMX outputs to one or several faders of your controller in order to have a general master fader, for example. Do not forget to save your modifications. This is not done automatically.
This is method is really faster and enables to setup 80% of the available features.
Imagine now you want to assign a scene or a switch to a button of the MIDI controller, a blackout button for instance. Use the shift-click function (hold the shift key and click with the right button of the mouse) on the switch and select "Button activation" from the "Link to Midi Controller" option. This will open the following window, 4 options are available:
- On/Off: the switch is called when the MIDI command is sent
- V>Level: specify the minimum MIDI command level to call the switch
Level: specify the minimum MIDI command level to call the switch
- V- level1
