How to automate MIO Console Mixing Board Channel Fader from Digital Performer

How to automate MIO Console Mixing Board fader from Digital Performer

Fader Automation

MIO Console Mixing Board channel fader can receive Pitch Bend MIDI information, which can be used as automation from Digital Performer.

Here is a step by step instruction to link Digital Performer to MIO Console Mixing Board channel fader

[Mute]/[Solo] Automation explained below

Interapplication MIDDI

1. You will create virtual MIDI I/O ports in DP by opening Setup > Interapplication MIDI dialog box

Interapplication MIDI Config

2. Click [Add] for Inputs and Outputs. The default name appears.

Track Assignment

3. Create a MIDI track in DP, click-open a MIDI track output assignment popup window, and select DP Output-1 as the destination.

MIDI Plug-in

4. Insert a "Reassign Continuous Data" MIDI plug-in for the MIDI track.

MIDI Plug-in Config

5. Set the source to CC7, and the target to Pitch Bend.

You need to engage "Copy" mode instead of "Change" mode, or you will not see DP fader moving with the MIO fader.

MIO Config

6. In MIO Config, set the Controller input to DP Output.

That's it!



Be sure not to create MIDI Loop.  It will bring MIO Console into SWOD (Spinning Wheel of Death). Yes, I have been there!

You can automate [Mute] and [Solo] as well

Once the above channel fader automation is working, you can toggle [Mute] and [Solo] by inserting a MIDI note. For example, I found MIDI note E-1 (this is negative 1) toggles [Mute] and MIDI note G#-2 toggles [Solo] on channel 1 in the MIO Console Mixing Board.

The hardest part is to find the exact MIDI note value. I used MIDI Monitor application for this.
