V-Control software offers a number of different faders, mutes and buttons, including faders for Ableton, Apple Logic Pro, Cubase, Digidesign Pro Tools, GarageBand and Logic. There's a large rectangular panel with faders for a range of other parameters, such as EQ, guitar effects, compressor, wah and reverb. The media wizards at Rogue have also thrown in a set of mixer buttons and a master reset, but where the functionality is really well-thought-out is in the UI. For example, you can use the combination of a dedicated 'V-Window' button and a touch gesture on the iPad to quickly open up or close a virtual DAW fader or window. The touch gestures are extremely intuitive and simple to use.
The range of simultaneously displayed UI elements is very useful, and arguably, preferable to having too many linked displays set up, as this means too many windows have to be open at any one time. As this is primarily a solo instrument controller, I only really needed some faders, mutes and EQ, so the secondary screens available provide quick access to the effects, compressor and stereo imaging controls.
For me, the most useful screen is the set of one DAW screen and one V-Window, as this is a great way to see two views simultaneously, and I found this much more useful than having a second screen. You can also save information about your sessions and store up to six configurations and instantly recall your favourite combo without having to switch any tedious startup configurations. You can even save your sessions to the device, letting you control the same session later if you have to leave the room without a computer. What I really like is that the device's Wi-Fi capability means it gives the impression of having the same familiar interface even when wired to a DAW, as it's seamless to pass between the two. d2c66b5586
