The Virtual Control Surface for your Virtual Studio

Blue Cat’s Remote Control is a plug-in and application which lets you control and monitor in real time several MIDI controllable plug-ins or devices from a single customizable user interface.

Typical applications: MIDI remote control, MIDI CC mapping, MIDI CC values monitoring, transform automation to MIDI and MIDI to automation, custom user interface.

The user interface of your favorite plug-in is not satisfying? Your favorite hardware device is too complicated to control? Your project contains hundreds of plug-ins and you would like to control them all from a single user interface? You need undo/redo for all your modifications? You would like to instantly recall all settings of your favorite MIDI devices from your DAW projects? This product was designed for you!

With Blue Cat’s Remote Control, you can choose any type of control (switches, faders, joysticks, knobs) or meter, assign a MIDI channel and CC number to each control, customize its response curve. You can as well choose a built-in skin that suits your needs for every instance of the plug-in, or create your own. This is the best way to create your own user interface to control your entire Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) and external hardware the way you have chosen.

Since the Remote Control can also be controlled via MIDI, ou can also use it to remap and transform MIDI messages, from one MIDI CC to another, with different response curves or MIDI channels.

What’s new in Remote Control v3.1?

Version 3.1 makes Remote Control available as a standalone application in addition to its VST, VST3, AAX and AU plug-in formats, and also improves integration with physical control surfaces.


  • Now available as a standalone application (can run without any host application)
  • Added an option in global & preset input settings to send MIDI events when MIDI-enabled parameters are modified in the plug-in (to update control surfaces accordingly). These MIDI output messages work independently from the usual Remote Control outputs (it’s only for control surface feedback).
  • Improved undo management and automation when using the mouse wheel to move knobs and sliders.
  • Fixed VST3 version not showing in Cubase.
  • Fixed VST3 version not loading properly in Ableton Live 11.
