you can download the latest version of the user's manual
New Command Edit Window in version 2.0:
- Key Type:
Most controls have only the ‘NormalKey’, meaning its active when no modifier is depressed. To extend the functionality additional keys can be added by clicking the ‘+’ sign at the far right.
All permutations of modifier keys are possible, e.g.: Win/Cntr/Alt/Shift.
The top row are the (default) settings when the control is not engaged, the second if it is engaged (button pressed). The checkmark at the beginning of the line enables/ disables the second label.
Choose between the different types of commands (Eucon, Key, BankLink [jump], Surface) from the ‘Type’ dropdown menu. The feedback option is only available for Eucon and Surface commands.
- Multiple Commands:
A single button can trigger a sequence of commands, such as return to the beginning of the project + start playing. By pressing the ‘+’ sign at the far right to the Cmnd tabs, additional commands can be added. A delay between the commands can be added using the appropriate field.
- Eucon Command List:
Clicking the ‘...’ button, next to the Eucon command field brings up a list of all available Eucon commands. These are Pro Tools commands and may not work in other workstations!
Similarly a list of ‘Surface’ commands is available here when the ‘Surface’ command type is chose from the dropdown menu.
- Multi DAW:
Each control can be persistently linked to one or several particular DAW[s] (ID number). If no DAW is checked, the command will be sent to the currently active workstation.
Known issue in version 2.0:
With certain international regions and language settings, EuconLayouter fails to open AppSet xml files!
This is due to some number formating issue and an update resolving the issue is already in testing.
In the mean time, please adjust your region setting while using EuconLayouter by following these steps:
- Change the Region under ‘System Preferences’ -> ‘Language & Region’ and change the ‘Region’ to ‘United States’.
(You may need to also set the language to English)
- Close System Preferences
- [Re] start EuconLayouter
- Open a file
