All those protocols and controllers...

Post by Coprine » Sat Oct 07, 2017 12:55 pm

I’m confused with all the MIDI protocols, MCU, HUI, CC etc.

All i would like is a keyboard that can play the synths in AP and some pads that can make a drumbeat on that keyboard.
Controlling the mixer would be nice but, as i understanding correctly, the keyboard needs the HUI protocol.

Can i just buy any keyboard for playing the keys and banging the pads?

So no Hui = no mixer control but playing and banging?
HUI protocol = mixer control, playing and banging?

Is this correct?

Any MIDI keyboard that's iPad compatible will work in Auria and will play sounds/pads. You're correct - MCU and HUI are for controlling the mixer, plugins, editor, etc.

Rim, thanks for the answer.

I see there is a list of compatible audio interfaces on the site, is there a similar list with keyboards that have Mackie/HUI?
Or any one here that have a good suggestion for such a keyboard?

Check out the Novation LaunchKey. HUI compatible so you can use the transport, knobs and faders to control Auria.

Thanks Corey,

i was considering the Novation on my list.
I also came up with the Samson Graphite, the M-audio CTRL or Code, the Icon Inspire 5G2 or the Arturia Keylab essential.

Edit: The Icon is not IOS compatible according to their site.

Hi again,

i ran into the Novation Impulse and in a review it says "Impulse is HUI-compatible (but not Mackie Control-compatible)".
Will this be a problem to control the mixer?

Also is Automap a problem?
