Surface Dial with Elephant software

The functionality of the Microsoft Surface Dail got so much better with the elephant software, really amazing.

Two ways to use the surface dail:

  • Control every knob in your DAW at which you point with your mouse and use the surface dail.

  • Assign 6 different midi channels to it.

AI knob can do this for many years already. Now with MIDI Remote API, you can assign any hardware MIDI controller to the AI Knob functionality.

Hello @Martin.Jirsak ,
Would you please give a link to “AI Knob” if you have the chance please?

Thank you :slight_smile:


For example Steinberg CC121 has the AI Knob.

Just tried this, it is so smooth, thanks @Rommelaar !

Can’t figure out … does one have to use MIDI mode to control, e.g., automation?

It seems a little fiddly … every once in a while i have to back out, reset, etc to get it to show up/work.

Anyone else with similar observations, or is it just me?
