Old Mackie HUI work with Cubase

Hey all from sunny Cleveland Ohio,

I was hoping somebody could verify or help me out.

A friend has one of the super old Mackie HUI control surfaces, like this one

that he will sell me for next to nothing.

I see that there are setup procedures for HUI in the Cubase user manual but wanted to confirm that there is nothing I am missing or overlooking as these were apparently not “universal” until later when they hit the MCU control surfaces. Will this control surface work? Just as simple as connecting a MIDI cord to my interface and following the setup procedure from the manual?

I appreciate any and all help. Thanks guys!

Hi and welcome,

Yes, the Mackie HUI protocol is still integrated in Cubase and fully functional. Just make sure you select Mackie HUI in the Remote Devices, not Mackie Control.
