Topic: controlPilot - macOS app for ControlRoom settings & automatic Talkback

Hi everyone!

I'm developing a small menu bar app for macOS that displays momentary HUD Overlay displaying changes in TotalMix's Control Room. Tracked controls are Main & Phones Volumes, Mutes, Dim, Talkback, Speaker B, Mono, Ext In, Mute FX.

The app is useful if you want quick visual and/or keyboard access to your Control Room settings.

  • Watch your monitor level while you adjust, without having the overwhelming TotalMix Mixer window visible.
    Cool if you're using the ARC USB and want exact volume control.

  • The Overlay is transparent and you can't click on it. It can time out or stay visible permanently. Opacity adjustable.

  • You can easily assign Hotkeys to switch or adjust any of the displayed controls.

  • You can decide if you want to see the overlay just for a few seconds or permanently.

  • You can select Automatic Talkback, linked to the transport status of your DAW!

The overlay looks like this:

I'm searching for a few people who want to test the app and give some feedback before I release publicly.
If you're interested, Send me a Forum Email

The app has a minimum requirement of macOS 10.15 (Catalina).
It is code-signed with Developer ID and notarized by Apple.

Re: controlPilot - macOS app for ControlRoom settings & automatic Talkback

Thanks to the contributors so far!

I'm still searching for more feedback from people who don't use ARC or a dedicated controller, just keyboard.

Also, people who use TotalMix's Talkback feature are very welcome.

Re: controlPilot - macOS app for ControlRoom settings & automatic Talkback

a quick update: controlPilot now has a new Automatic Talkback feature, linked to the transport status of your DAW !

I'm very interested to try this menu bar, can it have snapshot changes?

Hi Juan,
I am trying to have this app centered around Control Room features. Maybe that would be just too much. TM lets you assign hotkeys for snapshot, have you tried that?

Hi all!

I made a short Demo-Screencast video to show what ControlPilot does.
I also allow pre-release app downloads for a limited time.

Re: controlPilot - macOS app for ControlRoom settings & automatic Talkback

I'm working on a new feature to automate Mute Groups based on DAW Transport Status STOP / PLAY RECORD.
It would be interesting to hear different scenarios where / how this could be used.

Re: controlPilot - macOS app for ControlRoom settings & automatic Talkback

I made a short screencast to demonstrate Auto-Mute and Auto-Talk.
Watch it here

Re: controlPilot - macOS app for ControlRoom settings & automatic Talkback

I added a few more options to the Auto-Mute feature. You can now select any combination of transport states (Stop/Play/Record) where you want the selected Mute Group switched on.
