Has ANYONE got a CC121 that works in ProTools? If so, how? Thanks, Steve

Hi,

CC121 is sending common MIDI data. In theory you can map them to any function in other DAWs, if the DAW can be controlled via generic MIDI device. But some functions might not be so fluent, as it is in Cubase.

Well, it's still just a simple MIDI controller. Every button press and every rotary movement sends simple MIDI data. So it will work in every DAW you want it to work in.

Only the visual feedback needs some scripting work. In this day an age almost all DAWs have open scripting environments for external hardware support. So this shouldn't be a problem. The only major DAWs without an open scripting API are Cubase and Nuendo but for these we have/had the official driver...

I did a complex Python script to fully integrate it into Ableton Live:

The tricky part is, that you need to send a "keep-alive" message every second to keep it turned on. Without sending this command every second, the CC121 is in idle mode with be blue Cubase Ready LED flashing.
This midi message is a system common message [0xF0, 0x43, 0x10, 0x3E, 0x15, 0x00, 0x01, 0xF7]
I think every 2s should be fine too.
