Map a screen control

After you have learned controller assignments for the screen controls you want to use, you can map the screen controls to the parameters in the patches you want to control when you are performing. You can also map parameters at the concert level to control master volume, view master levels, or modify concert-wide effects.

Map a screen control to a parameter

  1. In the workspace, click the screen control you want to map.

    The screen control is highlighted in blue. The Screen Control Inspector appears below the workspace, showing the parameters for the selected screen control. The Screen Control Inspector includes Attributes and Mapping tabs as well as a tab labeled Unmapped (until you map the screen control).

  2. Click the Map Parameter button (or press Command-L).

    The Screen Control Inspector opens to the Unmapped tab, showing the Parameter Mapping browser. The Map Parameter button lights red to indicate that mapping is active.

  3. Do one of the following:

    • To map the screen control to a channel strip parameter: Click the control for the parameter on the channel strip in the Channel Strips area.

    • To map the screen control to a plug-in parameter: Double-click the plug-in in the Inserts section of the channel strip to open the plug-in window, then click the parameter in the plug-in window.

  4. You can continue mapping additional screen controls by clicking them in the workspace and then clicking the corresponding parameters in a channel strip or plug-in window.

  5. When you are finished, click the Map Parameter button again (or press Command-L again) to turn off mapping.

You can map screen controls to parameters  by visually selecting parameters on channel strips or plug-in windows, or by choosing parameters in the Parameter Mapping browser.
