Connecting the Knobster
The Knobster uses a USB C connection. It can be connected to either USB 2.0 or USB 3.x. There is no need for installing additional drivers.
Verifying the Knobster is connected
With the Knobster plugged in to USB, go to the Air Manager Devices tab and verify that it is connected.
Plugin the Knobster before starting Air Player. In the Air Manager Devices tab, select Air Player and press the drop down arrow. You will see the Knobster listed together with all your panels.
Enabling the Knobster for panels

Go to the Devices tab in Air Manager, click the drop down button next to Air Player and selected the panel that should be used with the Knobster. Scroll down in the panel settings and find the Knobster settings. Select your Knobster from the drop down box.
Using the Knobster
On your Knobster enabled panel select either a dial or switch with your touch screen or mouse, a yellow circle will highlight the selected dial or switch. Now turn the Knobster knob(s) to actuate the software dial or switch. Some dials and switches have a button incorporated, press the Knobster inner knob to actuate the software button.
With a single dial selected, either in the inner or outer knob can be used to actuate the dial.
With a double/dual dial selected, the (big) outer knob operates the bottom dial, the (small) inner knob operates the top dial. This is for example used with COM / NAV radios.
Switches with three or more positions can be operated with either knob.
Only buttons that are incorporated into a dial or switch can be operated by pressing the inner knob (Push button).
