What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

ControlRoom started with a simple idea: provide musicians, producers, and engineers revolutionary new tools for music production, leveraging the power of VR.

However, as we’ve built a solid suite of 3D tools for mixing music in VR, we’ve realized that we have brainstormed enough features within the VR and music production spaces to work on this project for years.

We want to make sure we're adding features that our customers want as soon as possible. To do that, we'd love your input to help us move the product forward. Our plan is to periodically poll our ControlRoom community for their latest opinions on the app and translate those requests into new features and tweaks.

Through Early Access and our social media channels, we want to hear:

    What you like about ControlRoom.
    What we can do better.
    What features you would like to see in future releases.
    And whatever else we can do to make ControlRoom a better experience for you.

We care deeply about our users and we want to make sure we are giving you the right product with the right features for the right price. That’s only possible with your feedback.”

Approximately how long will this software be in Early Access?

“Six months to one year.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“Our plan is to continually ask the ControlRoom community what they want out of the app and put the most-requested features at the front of our roadmap.

Right now, our roadmap includes:
    New visualizers
    Compressor and EQ control
    More complete support for Studio One and Logic
    Enhancing existing tools with physics

However, if our community asks for other features, we will make those our priority.

Ultimately, our community will have a large influence on what we decide to create.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“ControlRoom is a fully functioning VR DAW controller for both Mac and PC. It works in conjunction with ControlRoom Hub and AAX/AU/VST3 plugins available from our website (see our website link on the right sidebar).

Current Features:

    3D Spatial Mixer
    Virtual Drums
    BFF (Big **** Fader)
    EQ Tablet
    FX Cube
    Multiple environments

We also have a offline Standalone Mode in which you can try all of these features.

Full DAW Support:

    Pro Tools
    Ableton Live

Limited DAW Support:

    Logic Pro X
    Studio One

Untested DAW Support:

    FL Studio

Will this software be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“We may experiment with different pricing structures throughout the Early Access process.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We will be engaging with customers on several channels:
    Steam forums
    Social media channels like Twitter, Instagram, Reddit, and Facebook
    Our feedback portal (see our website link on the right sidebar.)
    Our Roadmap Trello board

After polling the community, we will use their feedback to decide what to work on next. In most cases, we will work on the community's most requested features.”
