Take control of Pro Tools with  Steinberg CMC controllers







StudioConnector is an utility which translates MIDI messages from each CMC unit to HUI emulated messages which Pro Tools recognizes. The slider and knob modes are remapped and commands are organised to make the most use of all the available controls. For feedback all button-leds and rotary knob ledpatterns are converted as well.  

Besides fader, pan, mute and solo commands it offers functions like flip fader sends, send panner, (un-) mute all, (un-) solo all, change automation modes and plug in control. Moving to previous/next clip boundaries, selecting clips, nudging and grid step is possible. Transport control with cycle- and record mode switching are there as well as metronome switches. Scrub/shuttle, scroll window and pinch to zoom functions are included.  

No need to rememerber different modifier keys, only the CMC shift button is needed for alternative functions.
