MIDI and Desk Setup

MIDI and Desk Setup View

MIDI Control

SoundDesk can be controlled by a MIDI device connected to you computer.

Currently supported protocols:

- Mackie Control.

- HUI.

- Baby HUI.

- CC.



CC Map

After selecting CC as the protocol SoundDesk will let you change the assigned CC numbers for your controller.

Functions like faders are assumed to be in series or banks, if you assign the CC Map -> Fader to 20, the first fader is 20, the second is 21 and so on. The same is true for Pan pots, Solo, Mute and PFL toggles.

If you don't know the CC assigns, you will have to use the CC editor provided with the controller to find/change them.

Many controllers provide a preset like system to recall user created CC maps, in which case you can create a new preset and just copy the SoundDesk default assignments to it.
