Settings Panel Remote Tab

Properties of the settings-panel remote tab, displays informations about learn assignations, MIDI, keyboard, OSC, SMPTE, VCA, DMX and clusters.



Inverse the values received during the learn.


Quantization applied when state or value changes.

  • no quantization,
  • cycle,
  • Bar,
  • beat,
  • 1/8,
  • 1/16.

active mode

Determines when the remote assignation is active:

  • always,
  • if rack is ON
  • if rack is selected
  • if patch is ON
  • if patch is selected


clear binds

Clear the current bind assignation.


Set or get the bind name assignation.


midi learn

Click on this button and move your MIDI controller to assign it.

device name

Name of the device associated to the MIDI learn.

Use [Ctrl+Click] to delete the name association so the MIDI learn will react with all the connected devices.


MIDI channel used for the MIDI learn.

control num

MIDI Control message number (ie. Control Change, Note, etc) used for MIDI learn.

control type

MIDI message type used for the MIDI learn.

  • None,
  • NOTE ON,


    Choose between the 3 MIDI assignation modes in Usine:

  • Absolute The controller sends a MIDI message with a value between 0 and 127 (typically rotary knob, fader). If you create a MIDIlearn NOTE ON on a switch, the value is set to 1 while the key is pressed and set to 0 when released. If you create a keylearn on a switch, the value is set to 1 while the key is pressed and set to 0 when released.
  • Relative The controller sends a MIDI message with a positive value when you turn right and negative when left (typically endless knobs)
  • Toggle The control toggles its minimum / maximum value each time it receives the learned code. Typically, if you want to assign a MIDI NOTE ON message, to an on/off parameter, for example, start playing a wave file while playing a MIDI keyboard note, you can toggle it on or off, when the same note is played again. On List box or integer faders, the Toggle mode increases the current value until the maximum is reached. Then restarts from the minimum value.

    mackie control mode

    The control react as a in the Mackie control protocol.


    Only if you have motorized MIDI controllers connected. Force Usine to send MIDI messages to the connected remote devices and get a MIDI feedback.

    soft take over

    Soft Take Over if a control is moved on screen and it no longer matches the hardware control, the control will not update until the hardware control matches the onscreen value.

    For instance say you have a line fader turned all the way up on the hardware, then you move the onscreen line fader to the bottom. With soft-takeover ON, the onscreen fader will not react to the line fader until you move the line fader all the way down to match the on screen value. The control will then latch on and will be active again.


    System exclusive chain used for MIDI learn.


key learn

Click on this button and press a key (or a key combination ie. [ALT+E]) on your keyboard to assign it.


Key used for the key learn. Can be a key combination like [ALT+E], etc.

key mode

Determines how the Key learn affect the control: absolute or toggle.


Key code value of the key learn.(ex: A=65)



Curve type used for the mapping: log or exp, power curve, linear.


Mapping curve coefficient.

range max

Maximum range of the assignation.

range min

Minimum range of the assignation.


OSC learn

Click on this button and use a control of your OSC device to assign it.

OSC message

OSC message used for the OSC-learn.

OSC mode

Choose here between 2 modes: real OSC values received or force the values into the [0..1] range.

OSC tag order

This option is utilized to choose which tag to use when receiving multiple values simultaneously like in an XY values.


time code OFF

Time code learn, used to switch off a switch control.

time code ON

Time code learn, used to trig an action or to switch on a switch control.



Name(s) of sources VCA's. One control can be controlled by several VCA at the same time so the VCA values are multiplied together.
To enter several names use comma separated string like VCA1,VCA2,VCA3.
See use-vca for more info.


cluster name

Name(s) of the owner cluster(s). One control can be in many clusters at the same time, but be aware that you could have conflicts (different value sent at the same time).
To enter several names use comma separated string like CLUSTER1,CLUSTER2,CLUSTER3.
See use-clusters for more info.


DMX universe

Universe number assigned for remote.

DMX channel

Channel number assigned for remote.


unique ID

Current private id for this control.

recreate ID

If you experience difficulties in Polyphonic mode, try to recreate new id(s) with this button.

repair ID s

Each Patch shared on the local network uses its own ID (identification number). If you experience issues of Patches that don't send information to the good target, this button will rebuild all these id’s.
