I got a Mackie Control universal to use with Samplitude. So far I have had nothing but problems with it. I bought it to use with my live radio show post production chores but so far it has been more of a problem than I anticipated. It seems to work well with certain parts of Samplitude and not so well with others. The buttons seem to work well MOST OF THE TIME and it seems to be able to do automated faders EXCEPT SOMETIMES and I am not able to figure out why sometimes it works well and other times not. I have been using Samplitude to do most of my acoustical recordings as of late and hoped this additional purchase would prove to be something that it has not. Anyone here on the forum ever tried to use the Mackie with Samplitude and if so what were your reactions to it? I got the Mackie as NOS since it had been returned without being used and the folks at GC could not sell it as NEW. I am not sure whether it is the Mackie or the interface to Samplitude. Any help would be most appreciated.
