Control Surface [PRO][Control]

Overview

The Control Surface is where the most important performance controls (sliders, knobs, buttons, etc) for each preset are found. The Control Surface has seven column slots that can be populated with sliders (1 column), knobs (1/2 column) buttons (1/2 column) and a few special 3,4 way mutex controls (1 column).

There are some similarities in the layout of the Control Surface for all the factory presets. There is almost always a Whammy Slider, there is almost always an Amplifier Volume Slider, there is often a Vibrato Depth, and there is often a Palm Mute slider, but in general the factory presets have different Control Surface layouts.

The control surface editor also supports configuring the Expression Pad, Poly Expr (for KeyY, KeyZ), Key Step control and Key Num control

MIDI assignments, for both sending and receiving, is also supported. Multiple MIDI controllers can be associated with any given control.
