    Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

How does this driver work?

This driver converts fader position into virtual encoder turns. If the fader is in the middle position, the virtual encoder is stopped. Increasing the position from the center will progressively start turning the encoder to the right. Lowering the position from the center wll progressively generate encoder turns to the left. The sensitivity is defined by the distance to the fader center position.

The output virtual encoder doesn't stop sending events.

You need to set the respective input fader level to the middle position.
