Default Pro Tools 9 + Command 8 or other?

I'm still occasionally using Pro Tools 9 on location (MBP; OS10.6.8) and I'm thinking about picking up a fairly cheap Command 8 controller. I'm sure that the Command 8 works fine under PT9, but am wondering whether there is anything else to consider. I assume that most recent controllers will not work with PT9. If anyone happens to have knowledge of this, I would be grateful to know.

Indeed, most of the crop of newer controllers aren't going to work. Command 8 is actually quite a good little surface. If you don't need 8 faders, the original Presonus Faderport is quite decent(still using mine on PT2021.12). Other option that MIGHT work(if you can get the proper drivers) would be the old Mackie controllers, but anything that has a HUI mode may also work(again, subject to a compatible driver). All things considered, I would still go for the Command 8 if you need all its function, or the old Faderport for its small size(with good functionality).

Thank you for your helpful reply. I think it sounds risky to buy and try anything more recent, so I'll give the Command 8 a go.
