Help with Mackie Control Universal Pro

Post by TI1005 » Wed Apr 06, 2016 4:12 am

Hi, this is my first post, so please be lenient with me :?

I just bought an second hand MCU Pro - rather old, with Firmware 3.0. I had no problems getting it to work with Auria both in HUI or MCU mode.

BUT: In both modes, I was kind of disappointed how few functions are available on the hardware. No jog wheel and only about 30% of all the buttons...

1. Is anything wrong?
2. Is it possible to edit the mapping between Auria and the device?

Thx in advance!

The jog wheel isn't implemented, but all other functions should work - plugin editing, aux sends, faders, pan, meters, mute/solo, track names, transport. Please describe the features you see missing?

Hi Rim,

thanks for the quick reply - I am in the office, so not in front of the devices. What I remember:
-Zoom/Arrow Keys
-F-Keys
-Does Flip work?
-Select button for each track
-Save button
-Most of the Global View buttons have no function (toggle between track and mixer view is working, why not open "FX" for example?

Don´t get me wrong, overall it is working fine, and I am a huge fan of Auria - I am just wondering if it is possible to get the most out of the controller (or adjust/edit/customize the mapping of functions in the protocol.

Can you describe how plugin editing works? I may have missed this functionality.

TI
