The CTRL-49 is controlled by the Virtual Instrument Player (VIP) software which is included. The software allows you to access any of the VST virtual instruments or effects in your computer directly from the keyboard itself.  This intuitive feature allows you to quickly search and filter through every patch or plug-in that you have in your library, simply by using the built in tagging function that makes finding that one sound your after effortless and easy to find.  The VIP software automatically maps the keyboards controls to the selected plug-in and will show the parameters of this directly on the 4.3 inch display for a familiar 1:1 workstation-style experience.

The VIP software in the CTRL- 49 also will create a multi directly from the controller. By using a multi you can combine up to 8 patches and 1 or more plug-ins, presenting you with multiple options when producing; such as the option to layer, mix and pan all the patches at once.  The keyboard can even set splits and transpose individual patches within their multi. By using this advanced design feature you can save all the new sounds you've created and give you the ability to easily recall these at any point.

The VIP software included also can be used for live performance use. The software can create set lists which can give you fast, efficient access to your virtual instruments and effects.  Also, with the simple press of a button you can switch to the next plug-in you want without the need for touching the computer.
