The ACT MIDI Controller plug-in can be configured to support any generic MIDI controller (controller/surface), such as the JL Cooper FaderMaster, Peavey PC-1600, and Kenton Control Freak. Generic controllers/surfaces typically have 8-16 strips of faders/knobs/buttons, are non-motorized, and can often be configured to transmit any MIDI message (continuous controllers, NRPNs, Sysx, etc.). The ACT MIDI Controller supports ACT.After you have connected your controller/surface, and selected the ACT MIDI Controller plug-in in Edit > Preferences > MIDI - Control Surfaces (see Setting up control surfaces if necessary), open the ACT MIDI Controller property page, and select a preset for your controller/surface (load the default mappings).
2. Click the Open Control Surface Plug-in button in the ACT module. You can also double-click the WAI display of the ACT MIDI Controller plug-in.
Note: To change the bank of tracks that the controller/surface controls, use the buttons on the controller/surface itself (or drag the WAI display). Use the drop-down menu in the ACT module to choose what controller/surface the ACT module displays information for. Click the Open Control Surface Plug-in button to display the property page (interface) of the currently displayed controller/surface.Figure 571. The ACT module.
