Tangent Devices CP100 Control Surface

The Tangent Devices CP100 is a single, large control surface that combines all available functionality into a single device.

The following procedure describes how to configure and use this control surface with Color.

Note: You must be logged in as an administrator to set up the Tangent Devices CP100.

To set up and use the CP100 for use with Color
  1. Connect the TDLan port of the CP100 to the primary Ethernet port of your computer using an Ethernet cable.

    Important: The CP100 cannot be connected to the second Ethernet port of your Mac Pro; it must be connected to your computer’s primary Ethernet port, if necessary through a router or switch if you need to share the port with an Internet connection.

  2. Turn on the CP100 and wait for the unit to power up.

  3. Open Color.

    If you’re opening Color for the first time, you see the Control Surface Startup dialog. If you’ve already opened Color and have turned off the option for making this dialog appear, you need to click the Show Control Surface Dialog button in the User Prefs tab of the Setup room.
