Default Using other midi control surfaces

Hi

I would like to control automation lanes with midi controllers in PT9. Quite some plugins don't have midi control by themselves. Under Periherals -> MIDI Controllers you are limited to select five types of Midi Controllers but I would like to use just any midi generating device.

I can select f.e. M-Audio Keyboard as a type and direct the receive from and send to to one of my keyboards. This will show the Map section in my plugin window with the Learn button. However, I am never able to map a midi action to one of the buttons.

In my search through documentation and forums I found out that it used to be possible to select CS-10 and then use general midi devices. See f.e. this page: http://archive.digidesign.com/download/controllers. But this has not been updated since PT9. What is now the way to go to use other midi control surfaces?

Thanks

Guido

That is the only solution, I can't use my existing midi controllers?
Avid should provide some possibility to use other hardware that talks general midi.

There are Virtual Instruments that support MIDI CC (Continuous Controller) and there are Plug-Ins that require a supported Control Surface. Axiom Pro supports both of these functionalities. Ummm... your MIDI Controller will not map RTAS Plug-Ins.

Many fx don't have MIDI Control. And for the flow of a track it is very useful to have some knobs to control these RTAS fx. It is a bit lame that there is only one budget(?) Control Surface that will do the trick. My M-Audio ProjectMix I/O should be able to do trick with the extended MIDI Control support. Or any of my midi controllers really. Thanks anyway for the response.
