Topic: URGENT bugfix: MCU mode

Hello,

I am using AlphaTrack to control RME Totalmix, using Live (MCU) mode.

When switching from Channel to Master mode (press first rotary encoder) the fader's level is set to maximum. This results in VERY LOUD master volume, which can be dangerous to ears and equipment.
Please change this behaviour.

When AT is switched to Master mode, the fader should either read the existing level or, at the very least, default to the fail-safe level of -inf.

I am a beta tester for Magix (Samplitude), Algorithmix, FabFilter and many others.
I would be interested in testing an updated beta of this driver.

All the best,
Dax.

Hi daxliniere,

I don't recall ever supporting Totalmix.  There is no documentation that we created or any documentation that we've received from RME regarding support for Totalmix.  Wherever you got your information for switching from channel to master mode is where you should probably go to to get help.  What manual are you quoting from here:

"press first rotary encoder"

Re: URGENT bugfix: MCU mode

Hi CS,

First of all, wouldn't you want your product to be usable in as many ways as possible? RME holds a large part of it's market.

Either way, you do infact support Totalmix because you support MCU, which Totalmix is compatible with.

>What manual are you quoting from?

No manual, I just discovered this myself. So do I go to myself to get help? ;)

Seriously though, AT is a fantastic product and I would like to see all little bugs ironed out.

If I put you in contact with Matthias or Daniel at RME, would you be interested in discussing a fix?


By the way, it may be best to email me as it seems I'm not receiving notifications from your forum.

All the best,
Dax.

Re: URGENT bugfix: MCU mode

Hi daxliniere,

You're right, it would be nice to be usable in all DAW's and all apps.  But Totalmix may be compatible with MCU but MCU is just basically a language and different DAW's use that language differently.  What we support on the AlphaTrack is 'Live MCU' which is tailored to Ableton Live's 'interpretation' of MCU.  So while in this mode you may get partial functionality but it's intended for use in Live so this wouldn't be a fix to our current mode (as this would change the AlphaTrack's behavior in Ableton Live) so it would have to be a 'from the bottom up' driver update for use Totalmix and their interpretation or use of MCU. 

If you're not getting forum notifications try emailing support@frontierdesign.com and explain this to support and we'll see if we can get that fixed.
