I’ve asked both mackie and digi for the hui protocol many times. it’s aparently top secret.

I think I’ve got a patch emulating the motor mix including the displays etc. if your interested.

*rolls eyes too* – I got the same BS about the Mackie Control back in
the day. Lo and behold, everyone just reverse engineers the MCU or googles:
http://members.aol.com/mhigrules/MCMap.htm
I have even confirmed that certain un-named software companies have
implemented Mackie Control support without even getting to first base
with Mackie – so everything’s possible.

I did a lot of the groundwork to figure out the specs for users wanting
to hack about with the midi in Ableton Live, it’s really easy once you
take a crack at it. and mackie can’t do anything to prevent that, since
it’s just basic midi. I think there’s a bit of overlap between the MCU
and the HUI, so the above link might provide a good starting point for
faders, knobs and buttons.

Best,
Andreas Wetterberg.

I found a PDF spec of the Logic Control protocol, and it worked pretty
well with my MCU. I’ve got some MXJ code for it that I never got round
to polishing up, if it’s of any use.

That’s just it; with the above link one can simply cross-reference the
controller-/note values with the functions in the manual of a given
MCU-enabled piece of software, and you’re off. For instance (quick flip
through Ableton Live manual:)
Cursor Up – Ableton Live: Session View – Navigate up – midinote C 7
Zoom – Ableton Live:Session View – Launch currently selected Clip –
midinote D#7
etc. and so forth.

hello,

apologies in advance for this mundane question; but, i’ve tried
too many different scenerios and always the jit.externals are
not being recognized by my application. am i missing something
so very obvious?

thanks,

zehn

i know this post is quite old, but i am doing a bit of research on the mackie HUI protocol and this thread looks like it might be useful… anyone know why most of the posts appear blank?

thanks

they have been deleted because of rude language

haha ok, i guess that makes sense…

maybe i’ll start a new post about this then, cos i might need more info on Mackie HUI protocol. but first, i need to look into other options.

no really i was very interested, why they have been removed? seriously….
