Win DAW Control

Allen & Heath MIDI Control

For dLive, Avantis, AHM, SQ, Qu, GLD and ZED-R16 models.

Previously known as the ‘DAW Control Driver’, Allen & Heath MIDI Control works by creating virtual MIDI ports in Mac OS or Windows and then connecting these to the mixer either with or without translation.

  • Use the mixer as a control surface for DAW software on Mac OS or Windows by emulating popular HUI or Mackie Control protocols.
  • Send and receive MIDI messages directly to and from a digital mixer’s core for remote control of mixing parameters, scene changes and other functions.
  • Control and automate the most common mixer parameters using standard CC messages.

For further information and setup instructions please see the MIDI Control Help document.
Details on the MIDI Protocols for each range are available from the 'Documents' tab in product pages.
