Today Neyrinck have announced major free upgrades to the V-Control Pro 2 media control system. V-Control Pro 2 changes how controllers connect to media software, giving hands-on control of audio and video projects using almost any device. This latest upgrade includes a new free V-Panner app for surround and stereo panning from iOS and Android tablets and smartphones, as well as major upgrades to the V-Console fader control app.
What Is Neyrinck V-control Pro 2?
V-Control Pro 2 is a complete integrated control system for OSX and Windows media applications including Pro Tools. Free control apps connect through the V-Control Pro 2 software that integrates and simplifies control of the main OSX and Windows media applications. V-Control Pro 2 can also used to connect the Slate Raven MTi2 and MTX mk2 systems to media applications such as Pro Tools.
New Free Neyrinck V-Panner
The new free V-Panner is designed for surround and stereo mixing in Pro Tools. It runs on iOS and Android tablets and phones with wireless networking, on a laptop web browser, or a direct wired connection from the iPad. You can set up two mono track surround panners, or a stereo track surround panner, for touch-panning control. V-Panner also includes an innovative motion feature that allows panning to follow the motion of a smartphone.
Free Neyrinck V-Console App
V-Console is a free 8 or 16 fader iOS and Android control app for recording, editing and mixing that can also use multiple devices for up to 32 faders of control. New V-Console upgrades include V-Window that allow users to control plug-ins using the actual plug-in screens, and an improved insert and plug-in popup window.
Is It All Free?
The simple answer is no. The V-Control Pro 2 system can be purchased for $49.99 from the Neyrinck Store. You no longer buy the app through the Apple App Store. There is also a limited version free trial available so you can try it out to see how it will work for you.
The V-Console and V-Panner are free apps that are available from the Neyrinck website for Android and web, and from the Apple App store for iOS devices which then communicate with the host system on your computer, which is the bit you are paying for.
Free Legacy Support For V-Control Pro v1.9
Legacy V-Control Pro version 1.9 iPad customers can download V-Control Pro 2 software for free for complete V-Control Pro 1.9 compatibility with their OS X and Windows media applications.

With the addition of V-Panner, integration of V-Window into V-Console we can now offer the features of our legacy V-Control 1 app as well as a host of new features such as 16, 24, and 32 fader control, Android support and auto-sensing for wired iPad connection. We paid special attention to compatibility with the iPad Pro, the large size is perfect for 16 fader control.
