chapter 1
Working With MIDI Control Surfaces
Pro Tools allows you to use a MIDI control
surface (or MIDI controller) to move multiple Pro Tools controls at once. For example, you can use a MIDI control surface to
adjust on-screen faders and knobs, activate
transport controls, or scrub and shuttle in
Pro Tools.
MIDI Controller Terms
Here are a few terms that apply to the use of
a MIDI control surface with Pro Tools:
Bank A group of similar controls (such as
faders, rotary controls, or switches) that are
arranged in discrete channel strips. With a
control surface, you can operate one bank
of controls at a time.
Bank Size or Bank Width Corresponds to
the number of controls on your MIDI control surface. For example, an MM-16 or DC16 have 16 continuous-belt faders, while
the HUI and the CS-10 each have eight faders. You can use more than one controller
to have a wider bank (for example, you can
have up to 64 channels using four Penny &
Giles controllers).
Bank Swap The process by which Pro Tools
lets you switch control from one on-screen
bank of channel strip faders to another.
Global Controls Controls that perform single functions that never change. For example, the transport switches or the jog/shuttle wheel affect all tracks, and do not
change when you switch banks.
Pro Tools allows you to mix MIDI controller types, and have them act as a single
bank. For example, you could use a HUI,
MM-16/DC-16, CS-10 and PC-1600 together at the same time, which would create a MIDI controller console that is 48
channels wide. If you bank swapped with
this extended console, you would be
switching 48 faders at a time.
▲ Pro Tools supports use of multiple control-
lers of the same type, and allows you to duplicate controls from either control surface.
However, only the controller assigned to the
first MIDI Controller position (in the Peripherals dialog) can have access to Plug-In editing.
MIDI Controller Personalities
MIDI Controller Personalities are files that allow Pro Tools to communicate with MIDI
controllers such as the Mackie HUI™, any
of the JL Cooper CS-10™ series, the Peavey
PC-1600™, and the Penny & Giles MM16™/DC-16™.
Chapter 1: Working With MIDI Control Surfaces 1
These files are installed in the Controllers
folder within the DAE Folder. Pro Tools
scans the MIDI Controller Personalities
folder whenever you open the Peripherals
dialog and assign a MIDI controller.
Installing OMS
To install OMS on your system, refer to
the Pro Tools Hardware Installation Guide for
instructions, or refer to the OMS documentation included on the Pro Tools CD-ROM.
■
To connect your MIDI control surface to your
MIDI interface:
1 Connect your MIDI Interface to a serial
port on your computer. (Do not connect
the MIDI interface to the DigiSerial Port on
your Pro Tools system.)
2 Connect your MIDI control surface to
your MIDI interface. If you have a multiport MIDI interface, take note of which
MIDI port the control surface is connected
to.
The MIDI Controllers page of the Peripherals dialog
The Apple Serial DMA driver option must
be deselected for Pro Tools to properly
communicate with MIDI devices.

Pro Tools supports use of up to four MIDI
controllers at the same time. If you use
multiple controllers, make sure that none
of the controllers are assigned to the same
MIDI port and channel.
Enabling Input Devices
On the Macintosh, you must enable the
MIDI control surface as an input device.
5 In the OMS Setup window, connect the
To enable an input device:

3 In the MIDI Controllers field, choose
your MIDI controller device name from the
Type pop-up menu.
Choosing the source port for a MIDI controller
Additionally, if you are using the PC-1600,
choose a MIDI channel in the source port
submenu to receive data. Both the
MM-16/DC-16 and the CS-10 main unit always transmit on MIDI channel #16, and
the optional eight fader CS-10x expander
units always transmit on MIDI channel
#15.
5 Choose a destination port from the Send
To pop-up menu.

4 Choose the source and destination ports
for your MIDI controller. These should correspond to the input and output ports to
which your MIDI controller is connected.
Choose the MIDI Controller’s source port
from the Receive From pop-up menu.
4 Pro Tools MIDI Controllers Guide
If you are using the PC-1600, choose a
MIDI channel in the destination port submenu to transmit data. Both the
MM-16/DC-16 and the CS-10 main unit always receive on MIDI channel #16, and the
optional eight fader CS-10x expander units
always receive on MIDI channel #15.
6 If your MIDI controller has more than
eight channel strips (such as JL Cooper’s
CS-102 with additional CS-10x expansion
modules), or if you are using multiple devices of the same type in series, choose the
appropriate number of channel strips from
the pop menu under “# Ch’s.”
7 Click OK.
You can configure additional MIDI controllers (for a total of four) by repeating the
above steps. Make sure that none of the
controllers are assigned to the same MIDI
source and destination ports or channels in
the Pro Tools Peripherals dialog or in OMS.
Testing Connections
Move a fader or knob on your MIDI controller, and the corresponding on-screen
control should move. If your system does
not seem to be responding correctly, repeat
the installation and configuration steps,
and check all MIDI connections and settings.
Pro Tools Display of Banks
Overview of Control Surface
Parameters
In addition to on-screen fader and knob
control, your MIDI controller can access
basic Pro Tools commands for creating selections and regions, setting zoom views
and memory locations, and enabling online/off-line status, along with some modifier key controls whose functions correspond to their computer keyboard equivalents. The switch functions for supported
MIDI controllers are listed in the chapters
for the respective controllers.
As long as your MIDI controller is enabled
in the Peripherals dialog, Pro Tools will automatically scan the ports for your controller each time you launch the program.
With the exception of the Mackie HUI, if
enabled controllers are not found,
Pro Tools will still behave as if they are connected. For example, bank outlines will still
appear for your controller(s) on the appropriate fader channel strips.
In the Pro Tools Mix window, the channel
strips corresponding to a “bank width” of
faders are highlighted in color. The number of faders in a bank will correspond to
your controller type, and to the number of
channels specified in the “#Ch’s” pop-up
menu.
Using the Mackie HUI with
a Sequencer
The blue outline appears because each controller choice in the Peripherals dialog has
an identifying color associated with it.
Pro Tools places a colored outline around
the channel in any bank governed by your
controller. If you enable additional controllers, Pro Tools will color code the faders
with the color that corresponds to the
numbered controller (#1-4) in the Peripherals dialog.
If you plan to use HUI with an OMS-compatible sequencer, note that the HUI is defined as a device in your OMS studio setup,
and some MIDI sequencers software may
treat HUI as an instrument. This is because
HUI continually sends out an active sensing-type message which would be recorded
by the sequencer. (This will not occur if
your sequencer software directly supports
the Mackie HUI. Refer to your sequencer
software documentation for details.)
(Macintosh)
Chapter 1: Working With MIDI Control Surfaces 5
To avoid this behavior, disable HUI as an
input device in the sequencer’s Options or
Preference dialogs. In StudioVision, for example, select the Enable Input Devices
command from the Setups menu, and deselect HUI.
Removing a MIDI Controller
To remove an enabled MIDI controller:
1 Choose Setups > Peripherals and click
MIDI Controllers.
2 Under MIDI Controllers, choose None
from the Type pop-up menu for the controller you wish to remove.
3 Repeat as needed to remove additional
controllers.
4 Click OK when you have finished.
General Information for All
MIDI Controllers
MIDI Controller Width and
Bank Swapping
In the Peripherals dialog, the “# Ch’s” popup menu indicates the number of fader
channels for your MIDI controller. Once
this is set, bank swapping is optimized for
the current controller configuration.
Pro Tools allows you to swap banks of 8 to
64 channel strips at a time (depending on
the type of MIDI controller and total number of faders available), or shift the bank
over one channel strip at a time. For example, the CS-10 can be identified as being 8,
16, 24, or 32 channel strips wide. Pro Tools
shows which tracks are currently under re6 Pro Tools MIDI Controllers Guide
mote control by outlining the channel
strip’s name area in a particular color.
Each MIDI controller type has its own key
commands for bank swapping. These commands are covered in the chapters for the
respective controllers.
Disengaging Faders from Mix
Groups
The Control keys on both the computer
keyboard and the MIDI controller serve as a
clutch for disengaging a fader from a Mix
group. However, the Control key on the
computer keyboard and the Control key on
the MIDI controller are not reciprocal. You
must press the Control key on the controller to move a controller fader independently of its Mix group.
“Pass Through Null” Fader
Automation
If a MIDI controller does not have touchsensitive controls, Pro Tools needs some
way to know when a control is being
moved, to avoid creating large discontinuities in automation recording. To do this,
Pro Tools employs a “pass through null”
function.
With a MIDI controller that does not have
touch sensitive controls, the Touch and
Latch automation modes will begin recording only when the fader or other control
has matched or “passed through” the
present automation playlist value. In these
modes, the auto-matching LEDs on individual channels in the Mix window indicate which way a fader needs to be moved
to match the current automation data.
Triangular AutoMatch LEDs on a channel strip
When fader position and data match, the
track will begin writing automation and
will stop writing automation when you
stop moving the fader and the Touch Timeout has expired (Touch mode), or when
playback stops (Latch mode). You do not
have to manually “null” the fader to match
the preexisting automation level at the
punch-in point before playback begins.
This pass-through null feature does not apply to the Mackie HUI or the Penny & Giles
MM-16/DC-16. The HUI has touch-sensitive faders that will overwrite automation
data as soon as they are moved, and the
MM-16/DC-16 use continuous belt controls, where the relative position of the faders always matches the automation playback level.
Automating Switched Controls
When automating switched controls (such
as mutes or Plug-In bypasses), automation
data is written for as long as the switch or
button for that control is pressed or
touched.
For example, if you have just written a series of mute on/off states in quick succession on a channel, the manual method for
clearing this automation data would require you to move to the Edit window,
choose automation playlist for Mute, select
the mute automation data, and delete it.
In Pro Tools, you don't have to perform all
of these steps. Instead, you can perform an-
other automation pass on the track and
hold down the Mute switch when it
reaches the state you want to keep. As long
as you keep the mute switch depressed,
Pro Tools erases the underlying changes in
mute state that occur until you press Stop.
Global Modifier Keys
All modifier keys act in a reciprocal fashion, meaning the modifier can be held
down on either the controller or the computer keyboard. Similarly, you can use the
keyboard’s modifier keys in conjunction
with controller switches (such as mute/solo
or record ready) for all keyboard modifier
operations.
Transport Fast Forward/Rewind
Settings
When the Audio During Fast Forward/Rewind option is selected in the Operation
Preferences, you will hear scanned audio
during rewind and fast forward.
If the Audio During Fast Forward/Rewind
option is not selected, you can continuously rewind/fast forward by holding down
the corresponding switch. You can also rewind/fast forward incrementally by repeatedly clicking the corresponding switch.
The size of these increments depends on
which Display mode is currently selected:
◆
Bars/Beats: To start of previous/next bar
◆
Min/Sec: Moves in one-second steps
◆
Timecode: Moves in one-second steps
◆
Feet.Frames: Moves in one-foot steps
◆
Samples: Moves in one-second steps
Chapter 1: Working With MIDI Control Surfaces 7
If your system also includes an external
transport video or audio tape machine, be
sure to configure it in the Peripherals page
of the Preferences dialog.
Scrolling the Edit and Mix
Windows from a Controller
To scroll the Edit or Mix window:
■ Hold down the Command key, then
press an arrow key on any hardware controller. The arrow keys will then scroll the
Edit or Mix window (whichever is frontmost) one page in the direction specified
by the arrow.
To scroll to session start or end:
■ Press Command-Option-Left Arrow to
scroll to session start, or Command-Option-Right Arrow to scroll to session end.
Controlling Plug-Ins
Pro Tools lets you control Plug-Ins from the
first MIDI controller enabled in the Peripherals dialog. When editing Plug-In settings,
the associated track name is outlined in red
in the Pro Tools Mix window.
Since some Plug-Ins have more controls
than a single MIDI controller, these PlugIns are controlled through a collection of
control “pages.” The MIDI controller defines a “page size” based on its number of
controls, and the Plug-In controls are
grouped accordingly into pages of this size.
In many cases, there will be a one-to-one
relationship between the number of controls and the number of pages. Some PlugIns have an odd number of controls, or
have controls that don’t allow a page break
8 Pro Tools MIDI Controllers Guide
where controls would logically be grouped
together. In these cases, there may be PlugIn pages that contain “blank” locations
where a given control is not active.
The Plug-In parameters that a controller is
able to access in the current page will be
highlighted blue. Automatable Plug-In
controls are shown in red when in any
write automation mode (Auto Write, Auto
Touch, or Auto Latch), and will turn green
when in Auto Read.
Each MIDI controller type has its own key
commands for moving through the Plug-In
control pages. These commands are covered in the chapters for the respective controllers.
Automating Plug-In Controls
Pro Tools allows you to automate any PlugIn control, as long as the Plug-In supports
automation.
☞ For instructions on automating Plug-Ins, re-
fer to the Pro Tools Reference Guide.
On all supported MIDI Controllers except
the Mackie HUI, there is no distinction between continuous controls (which vary in
level over many steps), and switched controls (which have only on and off states).
On these controllers, you use faders or
knobs to set values for switched controls
on Plug-Ins.
Plug-In controls are generally mapped
from the top left to the bottom right of the
Plug-In. Some controls may be inactive for
certain pages, but each control will appear
over the range of pages supported for that
Plug-In.
☞ Plug-In page tables for each of the Digide-
sign Plug-Ins are included in online format on
the Pro Tools Installer CD-ROM.
An Important Note About Third-Party
Plug-Ins
Plug-Ins from some of Digidesign’s Development Partners may need to be updated
for compatibility with the automation capabilities of Pro Tools, as well as controllerbased Plug-In editing and Librarian functionality. Plug-In control paging behavior
is determined by the Plug-In software, not
by the Pro Tools application. Contact the
manufacturer of your Plug-In for information about automation support in
Pro Tools.

Mackie HUI Controller
The Mackie HUI™ (Human User Interface)
is a dedicated mixing and editing controller designed to interface seamlessly with
Pro Tools. Dedicated HUI controls allow
easy navigation through Pro Tools functions, including mixing, editing, grouping,
Plug-In control, and automation.
Communication between HUI and
Pro Tools is bidirectional, meaning controller movements from HUI are reflected
on-screen in Pro Tools, and changes in
Pro Tools are mirrored on HUI.
Key features of HUI include:
Dedicated Pro Tools functions
◆ Switches for window selection, groups,
editing and transport control
◆ Dedicated modifier key switches for Macintosh and Windows
◆
Numeric keypad
Navigation and cursor controls
◆ Scrub/Shuttle wheel with operation
mode switches
◆ Zoom/Navigation/Selection cursor
switch matrix
◆
Time Counter display
Tactile and visual interfacing
Plug-In control
Eight motorized, touch-sensitive faders
with fader bank and channel selectors
◆
◆ Illuminated V-POTs (virtual rotary potentiometers) control channel routing,
pans, sends, and other values
◆ Hi-resolution, LED scribble strip on each
channel displays channel identification
and assignments
◆
Stereo LED meters on each channel
• Dedicated Plug-In section for assigning
and editing DSP Plug-Ins
• High resolution 40x2 display for Plug-In
parameters
Studio integration
◆ Analog control room monitoring section, talkback control, mic preamps
For audio connections, control room functions, and information on the rear panel,
refer to the Mackie HUI User’s Guide.

Communication with HUI
Here are some general guidelines for communication between HUI and Pro Tools:
Pro Tools On-screen Dialog Warnings
Certain dialog messages that appear onscreen in Pro Tools will also appear in the
HUI display. You must close these dialogs
before continuing work with the HUI.
Pro Tools “Lost Communication”
Message
If Pro Tools loses communication with the
HUI, it will display “OFFLINE” in its Time
Counter Display. If this occurs, turn off
power to the HUI, wait a few seconds, and
then turn on the HUI again. If communication problems persist, check connections
to the HUI.
When Pro Tools has reestablished communications with the HUI, the far-right decimal point LED in the Time Code Display
will flash, indicating that communication
has been established and is valid.
If you are not using the HUI, deselect it in
the MIDI Controllers field in the Peripherals dialog.
Active in Background Message
In most setups, the Pro Tools Active in
Background option should be selected in
the Operations menu.

MEM LOC Opens/closes the Memory Locations window.
The Transport, Memory Location, Session
Setup and Inserts/Sends windows are all
floating windows. The switches for these
windows also bring an open window to the
foreground. If a floating window is already
in the foreground, then pressing its switch
closes the window.
If this option is not selected and another
application is brought to the foreground, a
warning will appear in the HUI display. Select Operations > Active in Background,
and HUI activity will be restored.
Chapter 2: Mackie HUI Controller 13
Inserts/Sends Editor
The ALT switch opens/closes the Inserts/Sends Editor for the currently selected
Plug-In, as indicated in the DSP/EDIT display by the flashing insert on the INSERTS
view, or by the currently active Plug-In on
the PARAM view. When a Plug-In is selected for editing on HUI, the corresponding Inserts/Sends Editor for the Plug-In also
opens in Pro Tools. Only a single Plug-In
can be opened and edited at a time.
If the Inserts/Sends Editor for the currently
selected Plug-In is closed, you can still edit
the Plug-In using the DSP EDIT/ASSIGN
section on the HUI.

The first fader in a mix group touched in
any single mix operation becomes the
group master. When the group master is established, faders that are in the same mix
group and not concurrently touched will
also move in a relative fashion. However,
faders that are in the same mix group and
concurrently touched are temporarily disengaged from the group, and will move independently of the mix group. Once a
fader that is temporarily disengaged is released, it will resume following the mix
group master’s movements.
When the group master is released, if there
are any faders in the mix group that are
concurrently being touched, the fader that
was touched earliest in time becomes the
new group master. Subsequent moves of
this new group master will cause all other
untouched faders in the mix group to follow.
The channel faders are used for level control of disk tracks, master faders, auxiliary
inputs, and MIDI tracks. Gain calibration
ranges from infinity (bottom of fader
travel) to +6 dB (top of fader travel). The
HUI channel fader tapering scheme provides resolution of 8.8 dB per MIDI value in
the –60 to –70 dB range, and 2.5 dB per
MIDI value in the –70 to –100 dB range.
This results in smooth fade outs to silence
at low level.

Pro Tools Solo and Mute Preferences
The following Pro Tools preferences are related to solo and mute behavior:
Solo Safe Locks out Solo Safe channels
from implied mute state when other channels are soloed.
Latch Solo Switches Determines whether
pressing the SOLO switch on additional
channels adds to the current Solo selection
(known as additive or latch on soloing), or
only one channel may be soloed at a time.
This is defined in the Pro Tools Operation
Preferences.
Solo/Mute Follow Mix Groups Determines
whether soloing or muting individual
members of a mix group changes the status
of the entire group, or only of the individual member. If this preference is enabled,
an individual member can still be changed
independently of its group by pressing the
CTRL/CLUTCH switch. This is defined in
the Pro Tools Automation Preferences.

About I/O and SampleCell Labels
Instead of using the default I/O Label
names for your audio inputs, outputs, busses, or SampleCell II cards, you can change
them in Pro Tools to 4 character names
that work better on the HUI. The I/O labels
that you create in Pro Tools are mirrored in
the HUI display.
You can also save these names as your default labels by clicking the Save As Default
button in the Pro Tools I/O Labels dialog.
☞ Refer to the Pro Tools Reference Guide for
details on creating custom I/O Labels in

long as the V-SEL switch is held down).
Newly-created sends default to post-fader
(V-SEL switch LED is turned off).
This functionality is available while in FLIP
mode. Pre/post switching is not available
when HUI is in ASSIGN mode, or if the
master MUTE switch is operating on the
V-SEL switches, or while Pro Tools is playing or recording.

Send Level Editing
▲ Keyboard shortcuts for ALL and ALL SE-
There are five SEND switches (labeled A-E),
a SHIFT (“flip”) switch and a PAN switch
which let you edit channel pan, send level
or send pan from the V-POT. The SEND A-E
labels can apply to either the five sends or
the five inserts, depending on function.
The HUI SENDS view mirrors the on-screen
sends view. If the current send is a stereo
send, the scribble text for the send flashes.
Fader FLIP Mode
To edit send levels:
1 Press one of the five SEND switches. The
switch’s LED lights, and the SELECT/ASSIGN LED display shows the name of the
activated switch.
2 Adjust the V-POT on an individual channel to edit levels for the selected send (a
send must already be assigned to the channel).
3 To show the destination of a particular
send on all channels, press any master
SEND switch (A-E) in the SELECT/ASSIGN
section. The destinations appear in each
channel’s scribble strip.
✽ For an additional method of editing send
level, send pan and send mute, see “Fader
FLIP Mode” on page 40.
LECTED channels using the shortcut modifier
keys do not function on send mutes.
Normally, the HUI channel faders control
track volume while the rotary data encoders are used for pan, send level and send
pan settings. In FLIP mode, these functions
are remapped.
To enter FLIP mode:
■ Press SHIFT. The scribble strip displays
“FLIP” and the SHIFT switch flashes.
For the currently selected SEND (A-E), Send
levels are mapped to the faders, Send pan
controls to the rotary encoders and Send
mutes to the channel MUTE switches. The
names of the current sends are displayed in
the scribble strips.
Send Pan in Flip mode
With stereo sends, the PAN switch lights
when controlling left pan and flashes when
controlling right send pan. To change
which send pan is being controlled, press
the PAN switch.
Send Muting
Send Pre/Post in Flip mode
When the master Mute switch is lit, the
V-SEL switches act as mute switches for the
currently active send. In this mode, if a
send is muted, its channel V-SEL switch
LED lights. If the send is not muted, or if
there is no active send (no destination), the
LED remains unlit.
While in FLIP mode, the V-SEL switch controls Send pre/post operation (regardless of
the current state of the master MUTE/PREPOST switch).

DSP SELECT switches and
V-POT encoders
DSP EDIT/ASSIGN Display
SELECT
The DSP EDIT/ASSIGN display is a two-line
by 40-character vacuum fluorescent display. This display shows information about
individual channel inserts, Plug-In parameters (for Plug-In editing), and messages
about Pro Tools/HUI status.
When a channel is selected via its INSERT
switch in the fader section of HUI, the display shows one of the following:
◆ The names of the current inserts (INSERT
Display mode)
42 Pro Tools MIDI Controllers Guide
Under the HUI display, there are four sets
of SELECT switches and V-POT encoders.
The SELECT switch and V-POT encoder
have different functions depending on
whether the display is currently in INSERT
display mode or PARAM display mode:
In INSERT mode, the SELECT switch is
used to select an insert for editing or assignment. The V-POT encoder is used in ASSIGN mode to choose from a list of Plug-Ins
or Hardware I/O pairs for assignment.
◆
◆ In PARAM mode, these controls are used
for Plug-In editing. The four switches and
four encoders represent the controls in a
Plug-In interface. Controls are mapped to
pages (or logical groups) of controls. Generally, the switches control switched parameters (for example, EQ band in/out
controls). The encoders control continuously variable parameters (such as gain), or
parameters that contain several discrete
choices (such as choosing different reverb
algorithms in a reverb Plug-In).
Rotary Knob Settings
Many of the rotary encoders on the HUI
can operate in fixed or velocity-sensitive
modes. In fixed mode, a single complete
turn of the knob goes through the entire
range of values, independent of how
quickly you turn it. When moving rotary
encoders in fixed mode, you can hold
cALT/FINE for finer control of setting values. In velocity-sensitive mode, the speed at
which you sweep through encoded values
depends on how quickly you turn the
knob.
The rotary encoders on the HUI channel
strips (which are used for adjusting Send
levels and Pan controls) operate in fixed
mode only.
The rotary encoders in the DSP EDIT/ASSIGN section can behave in a fixed or velocity-sensitive manner (the default setting
is velocity sensitive). To toggle the rotary encoder mode, press the F5 switch.
Automation Mode Indicator
If a Plug-In parameter is enabled for automation (Touch, Latch, or Write), the
6 o’clock position LED (located in the bottom center of the V-POT LED collar)
flashes. If automation data for the Plug-In
control is being recorded, the 6 o’clock
LED lights.
Touch Time-Out for V-POT Editing
Since V-POTs are not touch-sensitive,
when you stop moving them, Pro Tools
continues to write automation for the
Touch Timeout period. After the Touch Timeout period, writing of automation stops
and the automation data returns to its previous automation value.
In addition, you can stop the writing of automation by stopping the Pro Tools transport.
You may want to use Auto Latch mode to
record Plug-In parameter automation
changes using a V-POT. With Auto Latch,
you can begin writing automation (by
moving a V-POT) at any point during an
automation pass, and the V-POT will not
time out in the middle of the pass because
you are not moving it.
☞ Refer to the Pro Tools Reference Guide for
details on automating Plug-Ins.

long as the switch or button for that control is pressed or touched.
tion button in the Plug-In Inserts/Sends Editor.
For example, if you have just written a series of mute on/off states on a channel in
quick succession, the manual method for
clearing this automation data would require you to move to the Edit window,
choose automation playlist for Mute, select
the mute automation data, and delete it.
3 Choose the Plug-In parameters that you
want to automate and click Add. Only the
parameters that you choose here will be automatable. Click OK to close this dialog.
In Pro Tools, you don't have to perform all
of these steps. Instead, you can perform another automation pass on the track and
hold down the Mute switch when it
reaches the state you want to keep. As long
as you hold down the mute switch,
Pro Tools overwrites the underlying mute
data on the track with the current state of
the switch until you press Stop.
On the Mackie HUI, this behavior also applies to Plug-In switched controls (in the
DSP Edit/Assign section of HUI). Any of
these four switches will work in the same
manner.
Automating Plug-Ins
Selection of parameters for automation
must be made in Pro Tools software.
To record automation data for a Plug-In:

HUI provides a built-in, comprehensive diagnostic test upon startup. You can confirm that your HUI is fully functional by
running this test.
Startup Test
As HUI initializes during startup, it goes
through a series of diagnostics. Once these
internal tests are complete, HUI displays a
message and its current firmware version.
In addition, HUI has a series of built-in
tests designed to let you confirm that it is
working properly. HUI, Pro Tools, your
MIDI interface and setup, OMS, and your
computer all work together to create a unified system. These diagnostics allow you to
confirm that HUI is operating properly.
To place HUI in diagnostic mode:
1 Immediately after turning on the power
switch, hold down the OPTION/ALL and
SHIFT/ADD switches.
2 In diagnostic mode, all LEDs on the HUI
control panel should be lit. Take notice of
any LEDs that fail to illuminate.
3 Rotate the MASTER VOLUME pot in the
Analog Monitoring section to control the
speed of the channel fader travel. Make
sure that the channel faders are responding
to servo control.
4 Press Footswitch #2 to exit the test rou-
tine. If you do not have a footswitch connected, simply power down HUI, wait a few
moments, and then power on HUI.
50 Pro Tools MIDI Controllers Guide
5 Once the initial startup routine is suc-
cessfully completed, HUI will display “Welcome to HUI” in its display.
With the comprehensive diagnostics included in your HUI, you can determine definitively whether or not HUI (on its own)
is working properly.
◆ Contact Mackie Designs if your problem
lies with your HUI hardware.
◆ Contact Digidesign if you have problems
with Pro Tools software or MIDI services
(such as MIDI interface or OMS connections).
When calling Mackie or Digidesign Customer Support, be sure to indicate that you
are using a HUI with Pro Tools. Provide the
technician with a report of your problems
and results of the diagnostic tests.

The position of the CS-10’s faders may not
correspond with Pro Tool’s on-screen fader
positions. When you move a fader, it will
not actually affect the volume control until
the fader has passed through the on-screen
position, or null point. The vertical null
LEDs on the CS-10 indicate which way the
last touched fader must be moved in order
to pass through the null. Alternatively, you
can also watch the on-screen AutoMatch
indicators.

Rotary Knob Functions
When controlling a TDM configuration,
the six rotary knobs on the CS-10 main
unit control:
◆
Pan and five Sends
– or –
◆ Six Plug-In Controls in the active Plug-In
window.
When in the top mapping page, the rotary
knobs edit pan and five sends. The top page
is indicated by the letters “PA” appearing in
the two-character LED.
▲ While the CS-10 allows you to edit the vari-
ous send levels using the rotary controls, you
have no access to Send Mutes. You must control Send Muting using the mouse.
By holding down the Option switch (F5)
and pressing the Up/Down Arrows, you
can navigate through Plug-In control parameter pages, and use the rotary knobs to
edit the various Plug-In parameters.
To cycle through the Plug-In control pages:
Editing Sends/Plug-Ins with the
CS-10
On the JL Cooper CS-10 controller, the
send and pan controls are in a center section and not on a per-track basis. As a result, the CS-10 uses the notion of the “focused” track. The focused track is the one
that the send and pan controls will affect.
This focused track is always within the currently selected bank.
When using the CS-10, the focused track is
outlined in green in Pro Tools, while the
target track for Plug-In editing is outlined
in red. In the event a track is both the focus
of send/pan editing and the target of PlugIn editing, the focus takes precedence and
the outline will be green.
Transport Switches
The CS-10 has five, standard transport control switches:
◆
Rewind
◆
Fast Forward
◆
Up Arrow: Go to previous page
◆
Play
◆
Down Arrow: Go to next page
◆
Stop
◆
◆
Record
Option (F5)-Down Arrow: Go to last page
(LED will display “Fx,” where x = last page)
Holding down the Control switch (F6) and
pressing the Record switch cycles through
the various recording modes (Loop Record,
Destructive Record, and QuickPunch).
Option (F5)-Up Arrow: Go to first page
(LED will display “PS” for Pan + five Sends)
◆
After changing pages, the two-character
LED will show the current page symbol
(“P1,” “P2,” and so on), until a fader is
moved at which time the LED will revert to
showing the fader’s current level in dB values.

Penny & Giles MM-16/DC-16 MIDI
Controllers
The Penny & Giles MM-16 and DC-16 controllers work with Pro Tools as 16-channel
strip controllers. There are separate Personalities for the MM-16 and DC-16.
These controllers have unique continuous
fader belt controls, and ladder-styled LED
displays embedded within each belt to indicate levels at all times. Working with the
MM-16 or DC-16 is very similar to working
on a touch-sensitive motorized-fader control surface. Also, you can reliably punch in
automation data at any point in time, since
you are always at your automation null
point.

Peavey PC-1600 MIDI Controller
The Peavey PC-1600 is a fully programmable MIDI controller with 16 channel faders
and 16 switches.
Although the PC-1600 has a data wheel, it
currently can only send out controller values corresponding to one of the 16 faders.
Therefore, Scrub and Shuttle functions are
not supported on this controller.
Preset Modes
For your convenience, there are seven, custom preset modes for the PC-1600 to control Pro Tools. These presets are automatically downloaded to the controller when
enabled in the Peripherals dialog, overwriting any existing presets stored there. The
LCD screen displays the name of the current preset.
Each preset defines specific functionality
for each of 32 controls (16 faders and 16
switches). While there are 16 faders, the
controller actually operates as a device with
eight channel strips and with banks comprised of eight channels.
The preset modes for the PC-1600 are:
Eight Volumes + Eight Pans
◆ Faders #1-8 control volume for the eight
tracks in the current bank
◆ Faders #9-16 control the pans for the
eight tracks in the current bank

Transport Control of
External Devices
The PC-1600 can be used to control devices
other than Pro Tools, such as the Alesis
ADAT® or serial (9-pin) machine control
transports (using the MachineControl™
option for Pro Tools).
◆ To cycle through available transport
master types (Pro Tools, Serial Machine,
ADAT), hold down Switch 11 (Control) and
press Switch 6 (Online).
The RECORD switch LED reflects the
state of the device under control.

Using Other MIDI Controllers
If you do not have any of the currently supported MIDI controllers, you can a use a
third-party controller (such as the JL Cooper FaderMaster™) and program its controls to function like a JL Cooper CS-10.
This allows you to use any MIDI controller
that allows reprogramming of its MIDI protocol. You can then access Pro Tools with
that MIDI protocol and adopt the CS-10’s
functional personality.
The following information assumes you
have a familiarity with MIDI protocol, including MIDI System Exclusive (SysEx)
messages.
☞ For details on reprogramming your control-
ler, refer to its documentation, or contact the
manufacturer for more information.
Wheel Data
Wheel data is in the form of “2’s complement” with the 6th bit as the sign bit. Positive numbers are sent for clockwise rotation. These numbers represent the wheel
counts accumulated since the last transmission (such as relative position count),
similar to what a computer mouse transmits. The resolution is approximately 180
counts per revolution, and transmissions
are sent at about 10 milliseconds intervals
when the wheel is being turned.
