Has anyone got Audition CS6 and Mackie's MCU Pro control surface working properly - in particular the mute/solo/arm lights?
Say I have a 24 channel mix on screen and I press record arm, mute or solo on one track. Initially the corresponding button lights up on the MCU. If I then use the MCU Bank or Channel select keys on the MCU to scroll across channels, the record, mute or solo button does not move across with the channel but instead stays on the same physical MCU channel or the one adjacent. The LCD display and faders move and work as expected.
I have downloded the latest Audition patch and use windows 7 and Apple Macbook pro systems. The MCU has the latest Mackie firmware. (It's happening on Apple and PC based systems).
I have scoured the internet for any other reports of this and haven't seen anything. I thought it may be my MCU but support people at the store where I bought it replicated the problem using another MCU Pro and system.
Any thoughts or advice would be appreciated.
Which Mackie protocol is it using? Make sure that it is set to standard Mackie Control not HUI.
You may have to wait until one of the developers sees this post in order to get any feedback that they have about working with the MCU Pro.
I can confirm the problem. Solo and mute lights on MCU PRO are not updating correctly when scrolling banks or tracks. This makes mutes and solos very awkward to use even via softaware UI.
I am using Audition CS6 on Mac OS X. I hope there will be patch release for AU CS6 to fix this problem - or firmware update for MCU if the problem lies there...
Thanks. I own Production CS6 bundle and Audio edition in MCU Pro is very important for my postproduction work. By the way, I would like to see MCU working in Premiere Pro specifically for the Mixer and Video playback. MCU Pro could be use for such purpose.
Yes - we were keen to try 5.0.2 but no fix for the Mackie MCP Pro bug. Seems wrong to advertise MCP Pro compatibility when it's really not fit for release.
Any news from Adobe on whether a fix will be included in 5.0.3. ?
Just picked up the Mackie MCU Pro. Most of it works with Audition CS6, but not everything. The jog wheel isn't consistant with its...jogging, either. Sometimes its 2 second intervals, other times 5 minutes.
Anyone still having issues?
Yes - we still have issues . The indicator lights still illuminate for the wrong channel. It’s unusable with CS6 Audition so we’ve stuck with V3 - which is limited too in other ways. Didn't get as far as trying the jog wheel...
No further word from support, no hint as to whether a fix is on the agenda or when it might be.
Looking at following the herd to Pro-Tools here.
Odd. I haven't had issues with the indicator lights. They seem to be functioning properly.
I'm using Win7 with the Adobe Creative Cloud
My settings in Audition are:
Device Class: Mackie
Device Type: Mackie Control
MIDI Input Device MCU Pro USB v3.1
MIDI Output Device MCU Pro USB v3.1
Not sure if any of that makes a difference. Are there other settings I'm not aware of?
Something new.... The board locked up twice since first hooking it up yesterday. Both times while using the Fader Bank jump buttons. I reached the end of my channels. Hit the jump button again, and boom.... entire board locked up. Audition sitll worked with my keyboard, though. Unfortunately/fortunately, this is sporadic. Doesn't always happen.
Going to be a shame moving to ProTools, but I'll use what works best. These little glitches are going to cost me money in lost time.
Settings look the same - although I tried many options just in case it would help. It didn't.
My indicator lights went wrong after using the fader bank or channel jump keys - could be related to yours locking up. With the wrong lamps lit you don't have a clue what's armed, muted or solo'd. Even when they were right you couldn't be sure without checking the screen. Hence good looking but unusable.
Adobe said they had managed to re-create it which at least suggests my kit is not at fault but no further feedback since 4th September.
