A controller command consists of a controller type (0-127) and a controller value (0-127).
Each channel (1-16) has its own controller settings.

Typical controllers are Volume, balance (panpot), Chorus, Reverb.
These controller values from beginning of a song are displayed in the track list of information window and can be changed, deleted or its position moved with a click into a table cell.

Some special controller commands only work in combination with other controllers e.g. Data, RPN, NRPN, MSB Bank, LSB Bank

Choose a controller type
First a channel number (1-16) and a controller type (0-127) must be chosen. Important controller types are named in the list (e.g. 7 Volume).
