Remote In and Out

Remote Inputs are handled through the In & Out menu: DC Remotes, MIDI Remotes, DMX Remotes, OSC, and PSN.

  • To open the In & Out window, press Menu and then tap In & Out.
In & Out window

There are five tabs: DC RemotesMIDI Remotes, DMX Remotes, OSC, and PSN.

Hint:
The different readout options take effect on the Trigger On/Off,  In From/To, Out From/To values.

The common procedure and pop-ups throughout the three tabs DC Remotes, MIDI Remotes, and DMX Remotes are described as follows:

 

  • To add a new element, for example DC Remote, tap Insert new DCRemote.
New DC Remote
  • To enable or disable the Remote Input, right-click or tap and hold Enabled to toggle between Yes and No.

 

  • To assign the target, right-click or tap and hold Target.

The Assignment Editor window opens:

Assignment Editor

 

 

  • Select the target, for example a sequence.
  • To select a fader function, right-click or tap and hold Fader.
    The Select Fader pop-up opens.
    Select Fader pop-up

 

  • To select a key function, right-click or tap and hold Key.
    The Select Key pop-up opens.

 

The Trigger On and Trigger Off values define the range of the key reaction.

If the Trigger On, for example, is set to 75 %, the Remote reacts as soon as the incoming signal exceeds this value.

If the Trigger Off, for example, is set to 25 %, the Remote stops reacting as soon as the incoming signal has fallen below this value.

 

The In From and In To values define the range of the input signal reaction for the defined fader.

DC Remotes and DMX Remotes thresholds are defined in percent, while MIDI Remotes thresholds are defined between 1 and 127 MIDI velocity.

  • To set the In From value to a new value, tap In From.
    The In From pop-up opens.
    In From pop-up
  • To set the In To value to a new value, tap In To.
    The In To pop-up opens.
    In To pop-up

The Out From and Out To values recalculate the input signal range to match up the output signal range. The output singal range defines the range to use of a fader.

If a fader, for example, should not be moved to 100 %, restrict the Out To value to for example 90 %.

  • Example 1
    • In From/To: 20-80%
    • Out From/To: 0-100%
      • When the incoming signal is 10%, the fader is at 0 %.
      • When the incoming signal is 20%, the fader is at 0 %.
      • When the incoming signal is 30%, the fader is at 17 %.
      • When the incoming signal is 50%, the fader is at 50 %.
      • When the incoming signal is 80%, the fader is at 100 %.
      • When the incoming signal is 90%, the fader is at 100 %.
  • Example 2
    • In From/To: 20-80 %.
    • Out From/To: 10-90 %.
      • When the incoming signal is 0%, the fader is at 10 %.
      • When the incoming signal is 20%, the fader is at 10 %.
      • When the incoming signal is 30%, the fader is at 23 %.
      • When the incoming signal is 50%, the fader is at 50 %.
      • When the incoming signal is 80%, the fader is at 90 %.
      • When the incoming signal is 100%, the fader is at 90 %.

 

The In and Out columns at the end of the sheet display the signal value of the incoming signal (In) and the resulting value for the selected fader function (Out).

For detailed information about the values, read the Remote keyword topic.
