Re: Using AZ Controller for Cakewalk control of external audio mixer

Hello Alexey

I am currently mapping out the MIDI control protocol which I will use to allow Cakewalk (via AZ Controller) to control my analogue mixer.

I need to be able to monitor the audio source which is selected to each track in Cakewalk.  I will use this data to control a source select matrix in my analogue mixer.

As a test, I set up a rotary control from my nektar MIDI keyboard/controller to select the audio source for Track 1 in Cakewalk.

Under the Logic tab, I have created three actions for this rotary control:-

- Track Input
Action Configuration 'Strip'
Select Input

- Direct Linear, timeout touch
Action Configuration 'Value'
Direct Linear

- Parameter Value Monitor
Action Configuration 'Monitor'
Monitor parameter value

I can select the track input by moving the rotary control.

Next, I set up an Action for this control under the Feedback tab:-

- Ch7 CC:7 Use Value

But when I monitor this Feedback output using MIDI-OX, I get a constant CC value of 00 irrespective of the track source which has been selected.

Could you tell me if I have made an error in this configuration please?

Kind regards
