External devicesACT MIDI Controller plug-in ► Assigning controls on your controller/surface to cells in the ACT MIDI property page

Each cell or field on the Controllers tab of the ACT MIDI Controller property page lists the SONAR or plug-in parameter that is currently controlled by that cell. However, if your controller/surface does not have a preset, no knobs or sliders on your controller/surface will be assigned to that cell, or the knobs may be assigned in a pattern that you don’t prefer.
If your controller/surface does not have a preset, or if you want to change the knobs and sliders that control specific cells in the ACT MIDI Controller property page, use the MIDI Learn function to assign knobs and sliders to cells:
1.
Click the cell on the Controllers tab of the ACT MIDI Controller property page that you want to control with a specific knob or control on your controller/surface. You can assign knobs to cells that do not currently list any SONAR or plug-in parameter.
3.
You can edit the cell label by clicking the label and entering a new name in the Edit Label dialog box. This way you can immediately see which knobs or sliders on your controller/surface are controlling which cell in the ACT MIDI Controller property page.
5.
When you are finished assigning controls to cells, save your work as a preset: choose a preset or type a new name in the Presets box, and click the Save button (floppy disk icon) that’s next to the Presets window.
