Default What interface has a footswitch for auto punch in/out

I am going to be purchasing pro tools and need a recommendation on what audio interface would allow me to connect a foot switch to do auto punch in/out while recording. I only need 2 inputs and would prefer it to be USB.

I am not aware of any small interfaces with this feature. A used 003 isn't that expensive(and does have a quick-punch jack), but its firewire. One option is the Presonus Faderport. Its not an interface(use with any interface), but it does have a very handy feature set, including a foot-switch jack that can do either start/stop, or quick-punch(by hitting the SHIFT button on the unit). I love it and have seen them used for around $100.

Default Re: What interface has a footswitch for auto punch in/out

Posted this before but no-one has had an answer for me. The Punch In Footswitch stopped working when I upgraded to PT11. I have a 003 Rack and the Foot Switch Punch in no longer works.

Does anyone have a suggestion or a way I can contact AVID and put a message out to their Tech Support. No-one appears to have an answer or suggestion.

With PT10 AVID had to do an update to repair the same issue. Appears they created the problem again. Should be a simple keyboard routing issue since the keypad #3 works perfectly punching in and out. Why they didn't fix this in the update is a mystery??
