Default EuControl

Hi!

I have a question. I'm a S3, Dock and Artist user. What is about the EuControl App? It looks like a app from 1985 and I'm missing a lot of simple features:

- Touchscreen: Drag'nDrop function for buttons
- Touchscreen: Copy/Paste function for buttons
- save/load/export/copy/naming pages, etc.

DO you know Elgato "Streamdeck"? They have a great config software for the hardware:

https://www.elgato.com/en/gaming/stream-deck

AND:

- Search function in the Setup view. There are so many commands for PT and other DAWs, too. Like Nuendo. Why there is no "search" field where I can search for functions? Easy drag'n drop in to cells.

- Coloring a button, and the font-function is buggy

- Why I can't use the "Alt" button on "Dock" in the automation area with other DAWs? Like a "page 2" with the shift function or "9-16" on S3? hm?

- And what is about the implementation of Eucon for Steinberg? Why there is no support for mixer layouts/spill etc. Is it a Avid oder Steinberg thing?

A lot of things are very good :) But it could be even better!

Thank you!

I have to bump this up.
Eucon is getting better and better.

But it's 2021, AI and Machine Learning is the big hype...


Can we please get "Copy/Paste" for the Softkey Page and a search bar for the Eucon commands? I'm trying to setup Softkeys for Reaper and there are just too many Eucon functions to start browsing thru the folders.

Please...

That's so insulting. I think it looks very much like the best user interfaces from 1997!

I agree, there are some large editing functions that would be nice to have. But regardless of how the app looks, it works really well and has been updated continuously for years.

Ha!
I was alive in 1985 and the weren't any apps at all.
Only vinyls which we used to call records.
So all in all the PT app is doing pretty well and it's free, which trumps anything.

I'm talking about EuControl App. I could also pay for Copy/Paste and better functionality regarding editing layouts. Like EuControl Ultimate?
Spend 5k on my controller, could spend some on the software for it.
(when I bought my S3 you had to have an active support plan to receive EuControl Updates... )

Why I can't use the "Alt" button on "Dock" in the automation area with other DAWs? - This should be fixed in 21.10.1

- And what is about the implementation of Eucon for Steinberg? Why there is no support for mixer layouts/spill etc. Is its Steinberg thing, they have the SDK and are free to implement any feature we have added.

As for EuControl....it's really a driver but over the years it's been added to so much and now way out of date. I have channeled resources into the Control App and S1 for obvious reasons but yes the softkey editor is the next major thing that needs updating. I can't say when though at this time but its high on my list of wants. Next release we will fix a few things like adding a proper delay between macro commands, splitting out multiple S1 keys etc. but I think I really would like to move the whole thing to the Control App (which could be both on a tablet or the Desktop version)
