linking midi controller knobs/faders to protools??



I'm not sure if this is the right forum to post on, but..

Is there a way to link my knobs and faders on my midi keyboard to trigger faders and knobs in protools(8.0.4 LE to be specific)? For example. I want to either link a fader on my keyboard to trigger a track fader in protools and/or link the knobs on my keyboard to trigger certain parameters on plugins, for example on a delay triggering Feedback, mix , time, etc. This way i can ride and automate effects live in real time instead of having to painstakingly draw them in without a pencil tool.

all i have is an Mbox 2, so i dont have a command|8, C|24 , or a Digi003 that would make this 100 times easier :/

any help i would appreciate greatly

thank you

Ok. Well, sorry it has taken so long for a response. I'm checking it out right now. So I may or may not have an answer for you. Ugh. Under Setup/peripherals/midi controlers. Type = HUI. Receive from = your keyboard name should be here. This is the reason I said ugh: the next option is send to, which means you can only control specific options listed in the drop down menu. The other "ugh" is that ProTools prefers to receive midi control data from M-Audio Keyboards or specified HUI devices. Other than that, a good sift through the manual did not help much.


ah thanks for taking the time out to check this out.. well u make it easier i totally forgot to mention i have the M-audio radium 61 pluged in usb
