Here is how to double check the settings and communication on V-control.

1. Click on the V-control icon in the Menu Bar on the Top Right of OS X and click on setups.

2.  Be sure the DAW is highlighted in the Setups Window and shows up as Software and as a Setup.


3. Check the V-control Setup guide to be sure you are setup correctly.

Note: The V-control setup guide will only show how to setup 8 faders, so this may be some what different setup for Raven users with 24 faders. 

If the DAW is greyed out, then there is a problem with the communication.

Check your firewall is off in system preferences and any security software is disable. Such as McAfee or LittleSnitch.



It is possible there is another app conflicting with Raven and V-control.

Check out this link on how to switch these ports.


If nothing is has worked, users may need to delete all the V-control prefs and re-install Raven and V-control.
