ControlPilot HUD Overlay

ControlPilot HUD

This is the HUD with all incoming Control Room information.

Up to 4 Phones indicators and the ‘Speaker B’ indicator appear according to their assignment in TotalMix.

Mute Groups shown as M1 – M4.

When the HUD is ‘pinned’, it stays on screen permanently.

Hover the HUD with your mouse pointer to hide it!

HUD Layout ‘Compact’

In this smaller layout, indicators are shown as icons when active.

Compact displays all indications that the full display does, except for no Phones 3 & 4 mutes and only one MuteGroup.

ControlPilot Popover Settings


Adjust ControlPilot settings in this dropdown window. On the menu bar icon, click left to open the dropdown.

TotalMix: A green light show when communication with TotalMix is correctly set up. If not:

  • OSC Network settings: Here you set the network ports according to what you set in TotalMix > Options > Settings > OSC.
  • Custom Channel Names: Is only needed for special cases. ControlPilot should recognize all Control Room channel names automatically.

HUD Overlay: Toggle HUD on and off with ‘useOverlay‘.

Choose ‘Pin Overlay’ to have it permanently visible.

Click on Setup to put HUD Overlay in setup mode and make all GUI related settings.

Automations: Both currently available automation methods need a setup of a MIDI transport protocol to get the Transport trigger from your DAW.

  • Auto-Talk: If a Talkback Mic is correctly set up in TotalMix, ControlPilot can switch it on in Stop, off in Play.
  • Auto-Mute while Transport: Lets you select a TotalMix Mute Group to control and the transport states that you want to apply. A use case for this is a near-zero latency headphone monitoring or a listenback mic.
