I'd like to upgrade my setup to include an external physical mixer on my desk that I can attach to automation controls in Premiere, allowing me to adjust sliders physically and have them interpreted by the software as keyframes. I've used a setup like this before with Final Cut, way back in the day. Is it possible with Premiere? What mixers allow this functionality? Is anyone else doing this, and if so, what mixer do you use?
I'm currently looking at the Mackie ProFX8v2 mixer (B&H Photo Video). If anyone knows whether or not Premiere will accept and recognize this USB out from the mixer, I'd love to know more.
Thanks for your question. The following documentation should assist you in making your decision: Control surface support in Premiere Pro
