They are two kinds of remote panels in Usine, the global and the patch remote panel.
In this panel you can assign any global object of Usine to a MIDI message from a remote controller or a key from the computer keyboard.
Global objects of Usine are, for example, all the Track Volume faders, the Tap Tempo button, all the Auxiliary Send faders, etc.
You can press ctrl+F4 or use this menu to open the global remote panel:
Usine has a simple MIDI learn function. To create a MIDI assignment, just double click on the Usine name (i.e. Synchro tempo) and move the controller or press a key on the computer keyboard.
Lights up when the MIDI-learn function is active.
Lights up when the computer keyboard Learn function is active.
Resets the previous assignment (clear)
Name of the Usine parameter you want to assign. (Double click on this name to begin MIDI learn procedure)
Displays the MIDI channel of the associated code
Name of the associated code like NOTE ON (code=144), NOTE OFF (code=128), CONTROL CHANGE (code=176), etc..
Control Number of the associated code
Specifies the range of the midi learn. Useful if you want to reduce the range (coarse) of the Midi affectation. Only available on Faders or knobs.
Name of the learned key.
Quantization mode for the control:
Determines the which vst parameter is associated to the control. This option has no effect in the stand alone version and is used only in the VST version.
There are three MIDI assignation modes depending on your controller type.
Only if you use a motorized controller, you can specify that Usine sends back a MIDI message to adjust the control position. For example, if you move a fader in Usine, it will move the controller position at the same time. Very useful for total recall when you open a workspace. Don’t forget to set the remote device parameter to your controller device in the setup/Midi Input panel.
Inverse the course of the midi control. When this option is activated the course goes from [127..0] instead of [0..127] for standard controls and [16129..0] for pitch bend.
You can assign this to any interface module object and external MIDI controller using the same method as on p.61. Those objects are visible on the interface panel of the patch.
The Patch Remote Panel is always associated to the parent patch. See channels assignation.
To open the remote panel, click on the Remote Button in the patch design panel. This button is only visible in this panel.
