I can hear @Guy Rowland gearing up to reply already... but I think maybe I've got a unique question that hasn't yet been answered. Riddle me this clever people. I quite like the Avid Artist Mix. I especially like being able to have my sync, temp music, my music on 3 faders locked. And a fourth fader as the currently selected track in cubase (well, nuendo actually, but given tonnes more people are on cubase, lets run with that!) . That leaves me 4 more faders. Now, with QC's one can assign midi CC's, but this requires a number of button presses on the euphonix to bring the CC's onto the faders, and it also flips the faders of the locked tracks up onto the pan pots. When working fast, it is not a great workflow (for me!) I'm personally not a fan of midi CC data as automation lanes - I can live with it, but I'm thinking of another way. What I'm looking for is the option of turning the motors OFF for the first 4 faders of the artist mix, and somehow using MAXMSP / Bidule / Bome Midi Translator to convert the signal to just plain ol midi CC like comes off the faders on things like Korg Nano controls etc. I'm hoping to get the first (or last) 4 faders to be set to specific Midi CC's (the usual!) and the last 4 remain as my normal (motorized) faders. That way even though the midi faders are not motorized, they are always ready as CC faders - and don't need to use the automation lane. Sure, I lose the motorized function, but I can live with this. (I live with it already using palette gear faders (sadly giving up) as well as faders on an A-800 (but its off to my side and not ideal ergonomically!) Yes - I want ALMOST the whole world but not quite I've seen hints around that it is possible, but never found the solution. I might start playing myself, but I'd love to be pointed in a direction at least first... I wish I had more time to play with these things. Thoughts???
