MIDI Control

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if anyone has controlled the FLX with MIDI? I'm planning to cue the desk using Q-Lab and just wondering if anyone has done this before and if so what USB > MIDI controller did you use?

 

I don't have a controller yet so would need to buy one but want to make sure I buy one that works, had bad experience with cheap MIDI controllers that just don't seem to do the job.

 

Cheers

Stephen

Yes, this link might give you a little more info about that: http://www.arvydas.co.uk/2013/07/cheap-usb-midi-cable-some-self-assembly-may-be-required/

 

It shouldn't matter which midi units you use, but as the above explains, the really cheap ones cut corners and fail to keep to spec. We've got MOTU units which work well and aren't too expensive. A lot of USB / FireWire sound cards also have MIDI outputs on them, so worth looking at those.
