Setting Up Novation SL MkII in Advanced Mode, Automap Disabled
Just posted this on DUC, but I know the level of expertise here and am hopeful someone here can help if no one there can.
I am thinking of keeping my Novation 61SL MkII as a master controller even though Automap doesn't play well with my system. I will not install it again. I have until Tuesday to return the MkII. Hope to determine if this is a worthwhile option for me before then.
1. With the learn function disabled, how do I match control numbers in Pro Tools with controllers on the MkII? Does Pro Tools have a list of its control numbers available somewhere? I don't see it in the documentation. Is this even the right approach? I have never set up my own templates and the manual for the MkII didn't seem to address this. It did give me a headache, though. For starters, how do I set the transport buttons on the MkII to control PT's transport functions?
2. How do I even set up the MkII as a midi controller in PT, or is this unnecessary? I've tried HUI, M-Audio...etc., but each option brings up a prompt explaining that there is no controller of that type recognized.
I am sure I will have a hundred more questions once I have these two answered. The fact that there are three templates in this controller for a TX81Z makes me want to keep it!!! I have a TX802 on its way here and I'm hoping this will make a nice controller for it. Could be the templates will be plug and play even from the 81Z. That said, if it can't be integrated successfully with PT that's a little extravagant on its own.
Thanks for any help!!!
