What the heck is a V-Pot?
megabux automated consoles never fully solved the problem of controlling
and recalling a rotary control value via automation. Until now, that is.
stands for virtual. A V-Pot™ consists of a free-rotating encoder
with eleven LED segments in the surrounding collar. It's damped so you
fine-tune with it just like you would adjust a standard rotary pan or
EQ pot. The exact V-Pot™ value is precisely displayed on-screen
or via HUI's Vacuum Fluorescent Display screen. The V-Pot's LED pattern
coarsely reflects parameter values.
value shown on a V-Pot™ varies according to the parameters it's
displaying. For example, a volume value can wrap clockwise from the 8
o'clock position, whereas a narrow parametric EQ value would start at
12 o'clock and wrap equally. Depending on DAE implementation, a value
can also be shown as a single, movable point.
dedicated LED at the bottom of each V-Pot™ shows activity or function,
such as automation or assignment status.
