Default Eleven Rack MIDI capabilities when not the primary interface

Hey guys, I am very close to pulling the trigger on an Eleven Rack, just waiting until after NAMM in the unlikely event that there is a new hardware announcement.

I've searched everywhere (here, GS, 11R user guide, Avid FAQs etc.) but I cannot find a definitive answer to this question, of course as I am not yet an 11R owner I may have misunderstood some of the details.

So, can the 11R act as a USB MIDI interface for Pro Tools HD (or Logic etc.) when it is not used as the primary interface?

I have seen many references to 11R core audio drivers for standalone operation with 3rd party DAWs, but nothing specifically regarding MIDI, so any additional information would be gratefully received.

The reason I am researching this is that I am soon to upgrade to HD Native (damn shame there's no MIDI IO on the HD Omni by the way), & I basically just need one channel of MIDI in to PT HD when composing, & if the 11R can function in this way i'd give away my aging USB MIDI interface (Emagic AMT 8 which is complete overkill) & free up a rack space.

Thanks in advance.

Ed

You're better off getting an inexpensive, small one, like the M-Audio Uno.

Or a keyboard controller that functions as one, like the M-Audio Axiom series.

I have an 11R on the USB port of a Mac Pro Nehalem. Works with either Logic or Pro Tools. MIDI should still be available when you are using Avid Native card, but you will lose the audio interface portion of the 11R: it's one or the other. I have both an AMT8 and the 11R hooked up. The AMT8 has Apple drivers from January 2011, so it is still very much functional. You would be able to use that with the Native card if the 11R gives you trouble.

Hi Samadyn,
I've been looking for a way to hook up my midi gadgets,like strymon delay to my Mac & that was one of the reasons I purchased it.So as per what you say,is it possible to hook up your keyboard or ay other gadget & send midi data to your DAW using the 11r?

I was able to hookup my Strymon delay via the 11r midi & everything works perfect!
