How to set up controls with a logarithmic/non-linear value range?
Is this possible already or will this added in one of the next versions?

Actually this feature is handled by the plug-in. In CopperLan, the controller just sends the knob/slider/controller position to the target. Then it's up to the target to handle it in the right way, applying a curve or not.

However it's possible for a CopperLan target to specify the Middle-Point position, resulting in a visual change of the controller display. But this feature is not yet supported by CopperPlug editor. I add it to the to-do list.

Ok, looking forward to it.

Here's an example that shows the problem I'm having:

Your image confirms Phil's explanation:
The parameter value presented by the plug-in is not consistent with the physical position of the knob it draws. This is a weird VST implementation.
