The following SoundID Reference parameters can be controlled via MIDI: 

  • Gain

In order to use the feature, you must first route a MIDI signal from your controller to the SoundID Reference plugin in your DAW. The instructions to set this up will vary depending on the DAW so, if your DAW is not mentioned below, please refer to your DAW's manual or online help center for instructions on how to MIDI map third-party plugins. 


Note: MIDI mapping is also available in the SoundID Reference standalone app, learn more here: MIDI mapping in the standalone app
