A hardware MIDI controller's knobs, faders, buttons or keys can be mapped to the emulated LC/MC's various functions, and the host application will behave exactly as if it has a real Logic Control or Mackie Control connected. LC Xmu provides one-way controller-to-LC/MC function mapping for simpler controllers, and two-way control and display feedback for various more capable controllers (including a hardware Mackie Control). LC Xmu's onscreen display provides full visual feedback of the current state of the emulated LC/MC.
LC Xmu is a compatible, effective and flexible way of using generic MIDI controllers with your host application, without spending hours setting up and then constantly re-configuring controller assignments, mixer maps, custom consoles, MIDI learn, etc. The host application automatically binds mixer controls, plugin controls, navigation and other functions to the LC/MC controls, remapping and updating on the fly as needed.
Because it emulates the unchanging LC/MC hardware, LC Xmu is forward-compatible - if a host application's support for the LC/MC is updated, the new functionality is immediately available via LC Xmu without requiring an updated version of LC Xmu.
