Arturia Keylab MK2 in Cakewalk

Recommended Posts

Please note that:

  • I do not think there are any presets for MMcL (nor original Cakewalk) Mackie control surface plug-in.
  • 'Configure layout' is to set relative physical position for several Mackie devices (f.e. left-to-right MCU+XT+XT vs XT+MCU+XT and so on). Related information is displayed on devices, not on computer monitor.

Unless you want to run multiple independent Mackie-compatible control surfaces, there's no reason to download the MMcL version of the MackieControl dll.

By independent, I mean not only do you have more than one control surface, you also don't want surface 2 to change its tracks when surface 1 changes its tracks. It's pretty rare that you should need to do this, unless you want to dedicate one control surface to buses while the other one does tracks.

All of Azslow's and my changes are in the CbB release, so just pick the standard "Mackie Control" surface that comes with CbB.

The presets are nothing other than saved preference settings, and for one surface it should work out of the box with the default settings.

There're only two settings you might need to change:

1.  "Disable Handshake" should be checked for any Mackie compatible surface that doesn't have a specific internal SONAR/Cakewalk mode, or doesn't list SONAR or Cakewalk as one if its compatible DAW's.

2.  If your controller has a master fader, change "Master Fader" to "Bus 1"  rather than "Master 1".  Bus 1 will control the master bus; Master 1 will control the left output (only) to your audio interface , which is not what you want.

Thanks all, this thread made my day. My Keylab Essential sometimes worked but mostly didn't, and I couldn't figure out why. It turns out it was the handshake. 1 time out of 100 it thought it received it, so it work. Now it works 100% Thanks!
