Control Bar overview ► ACT module

Active Controller Technology (ACT) allows you to use a control surface or MIDI controller to control the plug-in effect or soft synth that has focus. SONAR communicates with control surfaces via special control surface plug-ins (see External devices). The ACT module lets you configure ACT settings for a specific control surface plug-in.
