Default D Command main unit as extra faders?


I'm sure this is a NO but i have the chance of buying a main unit cheap and wondered if there would be any way to make use of it, as extra faders or will it just not allow for 2 main units at all.

Otherwise i could just convert it to a producer desk and make the desk look bigger and have some work space at the same time!

Default Re: D Command main unit as extra faders?

We tried that a few years ago but could not get PT to see both at the same time. Of course this was on Mac Pro 5.1 with PT HD10 and 10.6.8 with 2 ES Main units. Maybe things have changed so dont take this as a definite NO and maybe Eddie can chime in if you ping him.

The thkng is a faderpack is recognized as a fader pack 16 but a main unit is only seen as a main unit and not extra faders. This was what we experienced but maybe there are workarounds.
