Greetings, Hive Mind!
I decided to spend some quarantine time to get more tactile in my mixing workflow. The old MCU is apparently dead (good riddance; the build quality (or lack thereof) of the MK1 faders has lost me many hours over the years), so I went looking for support with our NI Komplete Kontrol 88s.
Transport and fader control works flawless, I have no issues in getting VST instruments controllable - not quick controls. However, UAD plug-ins (effects) for reasons beyond me doesn’t support right clicking and MIDI learn parameters of the plugin. Track QC will force me to keep plugins on specific slots as well as severely limiting the amount of parameters I can readily control, so that doesn’t seem a feasible solution. So I started experimenting with the Remote Control Editor, hoping this would somehow allow me to setup midi controls connected to (any future instance of) a specific plugin. That didn’t work at all.
My questions then are three;
Is this at all possible to set up the Remote Control Editoe with the NI KK s series? Or is it still locked to specific (in the manual unlisted) hardware?
Is my intended use even plausible in the RCE? E.g. does a control surface setup via RCE somehow allow focus to be placed on plugin effect level to allow the control surface to always control a specific plugin as needed?
Would a Mackie Control surface such as the Touch X or equivalent allow me to control insert plugins, including the UAD ones, with tactile controls?
