Default Can A V-KNOB Control A Fader Group?

I have PT 7.4 running on an XP machine. My control surface is a Mackie MCU Pro.

I want to use HUI to control a Group of faders. I can use one fader to control them but it means pinging Pro Tools every two seconds.

I am wondering if there is another way to control a fader group with something other then the using a fader HUI code, e.g. a V-POT.

I am just avoiding using a fader as the "ping" drives my Bome Midi Translator crazy. I don't need to know fader position, which what the ping is necessary for.

I understand from a paper I read "that you actually don't have to send a ping at all, to control the HUI. If you never send a ping, the HUI won't go offline and you can control everything *EXCEPT* the faders!"

Tough to say with a system as ancient as this. If you make a group out of the tracks, then adjusting any fader in the group would move all. Since, version 12.7(I think), VCA's are now part of basic Pro Tools, so you might look at this as a good excuse to drag your rig into the 21st century

Thanks "Dave"

I would love to update but I asked for an increase in my SS check and they weren't nice

I have a working IR remote controlling my PT. The only reason to use a V-POT vs a fader is to avoid the dreaded ping which drives me and my software crazy. For what I'm doing I don't need fader position. Thanks...s
