Installation & Setup
The T series controller will emulate a MCU controller, for Mixer and Transport functions. Just make sure that you have updated your controller’s firmware and then follow these steps:
- Plug-in your Panorama T series controller and make sure it’s switched on (if you didn’t do so already).
- Launch Live.
- Go to the ‘Live’ menu in MacOS or the ‘Options’ menu in Windows.
- Select ‘Preferences…’
- Select the ‘Link/MIDI’ page.
- Select ‘MackieControl’ from the Control Surface list.
- For ‘Input’, select ‘PanoramaT* (Port 2)’ in Windows or ‘PanoramaT* (Mixer)’ in OS X.
- For ‘Output’, select ‘PanoramaT* (Port 2)’ in Windows or ‘PanoramaT* (Mixer)’ in OS X. (Images 1 and 2)
- Close the Preferences window
- Press both [Octave] buttons on the T series for the Global menu (Image 3)
- Turn the encoder labeled ‘DAWCTL’ to select ‘MCU’ (Image 4)
- Press the [Mixer] button
- Press the [Play] button on the T series controller.
- Playback should now start in Live.
