We are happy to unleash Blue Cat's Remote Control 3.1, a free update for our virtual MIDI control surface software!

Image

What's New in Blue Cat's Remote Control 3.1:
- Now available as a standalone application (can run without any host application)
- Added an option in global & preset input settings to send MIDI events when MIDI-enabled parameters are modified in the plug-in (to update control surfaces accordingly). These MIDI output messages work independently from the usual Remote Control outputs (it's only for control surface feedback).
- Improved undo management and automation when using the mouse wheel to move knobs and sliders.
- Fixed VST3 version not showing in Cubase.
- Fixed VST3 version not loading properly in Ableton Live 11.

Enjoy!

Can it do MIDI note and velocity filter? And filter can do action, transpose note, snap note to key, change note channel, change velocity, drop note.

This piece of software mainly does MIDI CC messages to control the parameter of other plug-ins or MIDI devices, so it does not process MIDI note events.

For this purpose you may want to have a look at Plug'n Script and it built-on MIDI filters.

Hello Blue Cat,

Is there a tutorial on how to use Remote Control's standalone App with Patchwork's standalone app? Many thanks

There is no such tutorial right now, but what are you trying to do? Why do you need the Remote Control as standalone, while you can load it as a plug-in inside PatchWork?

Thanks for reaching out. I'm not able to get Remote Control to control the plugin parameters from within Patchwork after trying so many times. I work Dawless, so that's why I use Patchwork standalone. I created a drum bus to treat the kick/snare/hi hats separately in the parallel chains- and then have a plugin in post to treat the sum of the parallel chains. I may need direction on where to place Remote Control as a plugin in the Patchwork chain. I tried to place the Remote Control plugin in the post column. I have a BCR2000 controller assigned to control 44 controller within a Remote Control skins. Thanks for your help

Hi,

sorry for the delay. You should place the Remote Control before the plug-in(s) you want to control. Then you should assign the MIDI output of the Remote Control plug-in to a virtual MIDI port ("Port A" for example), and assign the MIDI input of the plug-in(s) you want to control to the same virtual port.

Thanks SO much! On it.

I am having difficulty getting remote control to act as an engagement tool for my intech studios EF44 which has knob encoder-buttons and faders... It doesn't seem to do anything when engaged in "MIDI Learn". I want to use this as a way to control different DAWs using a unified system of control.
