D&R AIRLITE

The D&R Airlite has a special keyboard mapper app which needs to be running in order for the Airlite mixer to interface with the computer. As long as this is running and PlayoutONE is configured to capture the keypresses you just need to configure the keyboard mapper.

We have a config xml file to get you started and this can be downloaded here.
