AZ Controller installation
If you have not done that yet:

Preset installation

Plugin instantiation

Preset loading

MIDI Learn

Adaptation to the hardware controls
In case you have normal knobs or sliders, no modification required. In case you have endless encoders:

How to use
Start modify some parameter in plug-in/ProChannel module by mouse (but not Sonar parameters, like track volume). You should see the parameter name in the "ACT Module" inside Control Bar. The first encoder should be able to control that parameter. Touch another parameter by mouse to switch.

While some parameter is selected, press Button 1. From that time, Encoder 2 will control that parameter even in case you select other parameter inside that plugin. Use Button 2 to assign Encoder 3. That way, you can control up to 3 parameter by 3 encoders (2 remembered and 1 in focus).

Please note, that the assignment is only working when the plugin/module in question has the focus. You can use "ACT Lock" button on ACT Module to fix the focus.

In case you do not see the parameter name after changing it by mouse, the parameter is not ACT mapped. Try to use "ACT" Tab with "ACT Learn" mode to assign the parameter to some (does not matter which) ACT control. See separate posts about the procedure, possible bugs and work around for such mapping.
