Using the iControls Pro

LrControl supports the iControls Pro with the device default settings. So after you have installed LrControl, you can just take it out of the box, plug it in and it will work with LrControl.

Layers

The function of each control on the device can be changed using layers. Each layer defines the meaning of each encoder and fader.

Device Layers
Important! Leave the device layer always on the first layer. And only use the layers of the LrControl plug-in. Make sure the first LED above buttons 'a' and 'b' is illuminated. Use the buttons to select the first layer.

LrControl Layers

The LrControl layers are selected using the row of Solo buttons. The selected Solo button will light up.

Using the Sel Buttons

When you power-up the device it is automatically using the device-layer 1, the LED marked 1 is burning in the top left corner of the device. In this mode, the Sel buttons cannot be used, because the message they send is also sent when using the knobs and sliders.

If you want to use these Sel buttons, it is necessary to re-program the device. Most of the work is already done, you can download a complete setup for the iControl Pro that allows you to use the Sel buttons as well.
