on test now running alongside MARKO Bcr ...

tascam EQ works !!! wooohooooo !! celebration coffee on the way :D

all hail AZ control \o/
There was mod is such direction:

But note that:
* X-Touch has correct original Mackie labeling. Original Sonar plug-in (as other DAWs Mackie plug-ins) has special overlay for a reason, Logic labeled layout simply does not "fit" well into Sonar functionality. So while they could implement some buttons as they are labeled, that was not possible for all buttons.
* QCon had a bit more problems then just with labeling in its Mackie compatibility
* FaderPort8 and all other known Mackie compatible (except mentioned X-Touch and QCon) are in fact so far away with the number of controls from Mackie unit that even with possible "re-mapping" of buttons they can not provide there best using Mackie plug-in

Also I have plans to re-make my Mackie preset for AZ Controller, especially for X-Touch (using Behringer protocol instead of Mackie compatibility mode, to support color display...). Not sure when that happens, but that will probably make current plug-in "obsolete" (current Mack. preset in AZ Controller already provides almost the same functionality as original, it is just not well tested and newer versions of AZ Controller allows to do it much cleaner, in such preset it is not only simple to change any assignments but also possible to adopt the logic for concrete device).
"External device" refers to any Mackie-Control compatible device (for example X-Touch / FaderPort8 / QCon / etc..)
As we all know,each vendor claims that their device is Mackie-Control compatible, but in reality, the implementation is partial.
Usually the basic stuff works (transport, volume faders, pan, etc...) - But the buttons are always different.
My idea was to be able to map these devices buttons into user defined mapping.
We already have such functionality in the MCU properties dialog (with the Function buttons mapping) - But I would like to support any button on the MCU "compatible" device.

For example, to map the "Marker" button on X-Touch device to Sonar's "Add Marker" command,etc...

I do not think I understand your question...
This thread is about original Mackie plug-in mod, which as original works with Mackie or compatible devices only.
So what you mean by "external device"?
Hi azslow3,

I would like to try and play with this project, the main idea is to allow remapping buttons function:

To intercept external device button clicks and assign it user custom command (the same way the original plugin allows to configure the another Sonar internal command)
Can you please point me for central classes to start exploring ?

Thanks again for your help & effort !

May be you have tried to search for FW-1884? I mean with "-"? As with Google, that is a special character during search... The thread and the preset are still there (just several lines away from this one  ;) )

Hiya :)

a few weeks ago i searched gooogle for alternative tascam 1884 toys :D ... this led me here where i found a thread dedicated to an unfinished tascam preset,at the time i could not find it in the site search,and searching again now still cant find it ... has it been deleted ? (or did googley reveal a private part of the forum?)

hi :)

this preset and AZ`s work is outstanding,im totally blown away with how much you guys have crammed into the interface ... real nice work  :D

one thing i cant figure out either using b9.07.spp or BCR2000_b7.spp is escaping to another BCR preset (i have the MARKO preset stored in 20 and use preset 1 and 2 in another controller software test) the instructions in the manual i think i misunderstand (maybe "escape to preset 2" means something else? )

for any other user with this problem:-

if you load BC Manager from Mountain utilites then use the "copy preset to preset 0 "
option,this will allow the use of all BCR banks again (until you select the MARKO preset again)
