M-Audio ProjectMix i/o footswitch punch/record instead of play/stop?
Hey, everyone. Long time Pro Tools user, first post.

A friend who was moving away gifted me a ProjectMix i/o, which I'm attempting to use as a control surface (UAD Apollo for interface), and specifically would like to get the footswitch working as a means to start recording as I do most of my work alone at home.

However, I can't seem to find ANY info about the footswitch, even in the manual. As it is now, it simply starts and stops play. This is useless since it means I still need to reach around to the platform and arm record if I want the switch to be used for recording. That defeats the purpose as I might as well just keep hitting ctl+spacebar to start recording. ��

So, my question, as stated simply in the title, is there a setting, either in pro tools or on the ProjectMix unit itself, that will cause the footswitch to act as ctl+space/f12 instead of play/stop? Am I overlooking something simple here?

Windows/Pro Tools 10 for reference.

There used to be a setting in Prefs for this, but I'm not sure its still there and the ProjectMix is way past its EOS(end of support) date. You could always sell it and pick up a used Presonus FaderPort. The footswitch jack on that works as long as the SHIFT key is lit(referring to the original FP, don't know about the newer versions). Another handy feature of the old FP is that it has buttons to switch between MIX and EDIT windows(something they left off of the new ones:eek:)
