  • Using an External Mixer with VEP 7

    Hi Everyone,

    I'm pretty tactile and I like using a hardware mixer with my DAW, in this case a Mackie Control. Can anyone tell me if it is possible to control my VEP 7 Mixer faders from the hardware faders? 

    Thank you

  • You can map the faders to the parameter or MIDI automation mapping and setup your Mackie control in the DAW to control these parameter / MIDI events.

    Being that I'm a tech-nightmare, Can you give me a little more detail on that 😃 Much  appreciated!

  • I don't use DP, so it is a little hard for me to describe what to do. Best way is to look up in the manual / youtube and see how to setup a controller.

    In Cubase I would setup my controller to change the automation data of a MIDI track that is linked to VEP, or to the VEP isntance parameter. When linked to automation of a MIDI track (for example Midi CC), just go to VEP, klick on the "L" button in the automation "MIDI Controllers" window and press / move your controller-knob/button/fader. Set the destination on the right side (which parameter should be controlled).
    For parameter mapping I would select my VEP instance and map the controller to the VEP parameter automation.

    Sorry, but maybe someone here has the knowledge how to do this in DP....

    Best, Ben
