    Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)


Can I control a vMix instance running in the cloud?

Sure! Just connect to the external IP address of your instance and an external port that is forwarding to the internal TCP port 8099. Please refer to your instance provider on how to configure port forwarding for TCP port 8099.


Can I control vMix audio mixer channels with a MIDI device?

Yes. ShowCockpit is a modular software - all you need to do is add your MIDI device to your project and map its controls (buttons, faders, etc.) to the desired functions in the vMix element (full list of functions available below).
