    Hi

    I been using cakewalk for 6 years. I am fed uo with moving knobs with
    the mouse so I need a midi controller. I always wanted to buy a device
    which could let me edit real-time EQ (direct x 8 plugin)per track
    (kic,, snare, bass, piano etc).

    So I found the uc-33 and I asked them in the group how I could do it.
    No response. So last week I saw the remote control from novation.
    Could this be it?

    I also doewnloaded the help file from mackie control to see if it is
    possible ut they are so vague. This is what they say about it:

    Configuring EQs
    When you press the EQ Assignment button, the Mackie displays
    parameters from any EQs that are patched into your tracks or buses.
    The methods to display different parameters or choose different EQs
    that are on the same track are the same as for other plug-ins (if you
    have more than one EQ on a track or bus, the Assignment window
    displays E followed by the number of the effect). However, when you
    press the EQ Assignment button, there are three modes available
    instead of two:

    Pressing the button once displays one EQ parameter on every track
    (Multi Channel mode). The Assignment window displays E# with no
    period.
    Pressing the button twice displays the EQ parameters on a single
    selected track (Single Channel mode). The Assignment window displays
    E# with a period.
    Pressing the button three times assigns the V-pots to band frequency
    on all the bands on a single track, and assigns the faders to control
    the corresponding gain on each band. The Assignment window displays F#
    with a period.
    There are additional shortcuts when you're configuring EQs:

    When you hold down M1, the V-pots control fine frequency.
    When you hold down M2, the V-pots control Q. Holding down M2 and M1
    lets you make fine adjustments to Q.
    When you hold down M3, the V-pots control gain. Holding down M3 and M1
    lets you make fine adjustments to gain.
    When you hold down M4, the V-pots control band enable/disable.
    Holding down M1 and M(2, 3, or 4), and pushing a V-pot arms the
    displayed parameter for automation.

    are they talking about direct x8 EQ (those found in sonar , fx DSP I
    think they call them in sonar). Is it posible to control Waves 4 vst
    plugins with uc-33 or remote control??

    thanks
