The test rig ( I have an old Celco Navigator desk to re-work for the final fader setup), the faders here are logarithmic which is not of great use. 

Previously I have had little success with hairless midi, but this time round it worked well. The input from the Arduion is selected on the serial port menu. Debug messages are very helpful. Out put can be set to MIDI Out ( Midi Through ) to pipe the messages into QLC, if QLC is running there is another option for MIDI out but it's not needed.

Debug messages showing the one connected fader at it's lowest point ZERO.

In QLC on the INPUT/OUTPUT tab you will find Midi Input, Midi Through is the one we have mapped out of Hairless. RtMidi is the other one you would find in Hairless as Qlc0. Either works.

You will need to configure the channel received by clicking the wrench and screwdriver icon.

You know when MIDI is being received as the Universe shows a joystick ( depending on the receive rate it may flash )

The next step is to create an input profile for the new midi input

This can be done by manually assigning new channels, or by capturing the MIDI data.

The capture sets everything as button, it doesn't really matter. Also Capture assigns different QLC channels to those that are added manually.

The final stage for testing is to go to Virtual Console, create some faders and assign channels to them.
Create the fade from the menu button, then right click on the new fader to get "Widget Properties"

After this you should be able to change from design to "Operate" mode by clicklink the play icon in the top right.

And at this stage you should have real control of the virtual faders.
