  1. I bought this last night as a remote to sit on top of my 24 channel analog summing board. I own several of these that I just don’t use because of one issue or another. This one gives me all the control I was wanting from the others and my old iPad 1 now has a permanent space sitting on top my analog summing board! Great piece of software! If you are looking at the DAW remote apps for Logic, this is my favorite by far. No more rolling my chair from my board to my Mac, just mixing… 🙂

  2. Just cant get this to work with Cakewalk Sonar unless I start another app (Daw Remote) to get the connection to rtpmidi. then switch to this app. real shame cos I love the look of Daw Control and the smoothness of the controls. It seems to work with Reaper.


  3. It don’t work properly on Sonar, the software don’t send first input midi signal… I hope for an update or I have spent my money for nothing!

  4. The reason for this email is to bring to your attention the following issues with your app DAW CONTROL.

    While I do love the app very much and use it a lot, I have ran into some serious issues!

    1. My main Daw is Nuendo, so in your app I must use the default or the Nuendo/Cubase Template!

    In using this template some buttons seem to not work or work very poorly.

    While I do get a successful connection to the network and most things populate other things do not.
    The Ch faders are not responding but the master fader does respond.
    No matter what I have tried I cannot get the app to properly connect and bank through my channels.

    2. I have more than one ipad..I have 7 iPads.

    I use 6 of them to create a ” Solution” setup.
    its faster to use 4 of them based on the speed of my current network.
    The goal is to have The iPads work like a mixing desk or surface.
    I can’t get the Daw Control to work in a linked mode ( 1-8 9-16 etc etc )
    Then I get 5004 unable to connect issues with the mac.
    Even when it works I still get that error.
    I need some help trying to get this working.
