Default Re: PT9 and mackie control mode?

You can control ProTools 9 via three different interfaces:

1) Avidesign's own integrated protocol, used by their own control surfaces
2) EuCon, used by all the (former) Euphonix stuff
3) HUI for the rest of the world

The old HUI protocol is very lousy compared to modern ethernet-based protocols and I can imagine that its implementation into modern controllers (like i.e. SmartAV Tango), despite pushing its borders, is a major PITA. I owned the SSL Nucleus for about three months and its performance in ProTools (via HUI) wasn't exactly awesome (which, to be honest, applied to the whole unit). I returned the Nucleus because of many quality issues, reached (much) deeper into my pocket and bought the C|24 instead.
