New Lightroom plugin for MIDI on the horizon

We got a mail about a new Lightroom-controlling plugin that connects the RAW editor software with certain MIDI controllers.

The new plugin is called LrControl, developped by Boudewijn Pelt. Boudewijn told us that he had chosen to develop for certain controllers instead of creating a universal plugin. At the moment LrControl is available for Korg nanoKONTROL, Akai MidiMix and iCON iControls PRO controllers. (UPDATE: also works with Beheringer X-Touch Mini and BCF2000)

MIDI2LR is almost ready

Rsjaffe has released the 0.9.8 version of MIDI2LR for Lightroom. A major new feature of this release is the possibility to assign keystrokes (and hopefully keyboard shortcuts) to your controller's buttons, even if you have no editor software for your controller that would support such a function. (As far as we know, only Novation's AutomapServer is ready to assign QWERTY keys to buttons).

However for OSX users sending keystrokes is still in testing phase, but Windows users can already be happy with this new function.

This is really a major release and also note that there are only 2 pointreleases until the final version called 1.0. Hallelujah, we are almost there! We cannot be grateful enough to the developer, so if you visit the MIDI2LR website, do not forget the Donate button!

Behringer announced three new MIDI controllers

Behringer has announced three new MIDI-controllers within the X-Touch series recently, and two of them are absolutely suitable for Lightroom use.

The smallest and cheapest one is the Behringer X-Touch Mini that has 8 encoders, a regular fader and 16 buttons. Also the encoders work as pushbuttons, so using Layer A and Layer B you can assign at least 4 functions to them. If you use Profiles(switching) in MIDI2LR, there is no limit.

Adjust horizon-level with a turn

MIDI2LR version 0.9.6 is here and again there is a new function in it: the Straighten Angle!

Although Pfixer has known this function for a long time, MIDI2LR users were not been able to straighten the horizon of their picture, only if they used the Rotate tool among Lens Corrections (that was just a half solution because of the white borders appearing on the sides when rotating a picture). Now a crop-sensitive straighten tool is already in the library of MIDI2LR so we can assign this function to a knob, encoder or slider on our controllers. It has never been easier to straighten your photos.
