Hi all,

Many thanks to you for your responses so far. I've yet to get the time to try out the things suggested by you in Cubase OneWorld, but plan to do so this weekend.

GaryM and Richie Royale, you are both right, a card known as a MOXA card (PCI & RS232) is required to connect to a PC which runs the automation software, but I very much doubt this could be used to control Cubase/Ableton/PT.

GaryM you also cleared up for me what MMC/MTC is and I can get the transport control to work in PT and Ableton, although the odd thing is, at one stage while playing with the settings in Ableton and on the Tascam, I managed to get a fader working, but if I set the fader to 0dB on the desk it might show as +8dB in Ableton, so very inconsistent.

Failing me getting this working, what might you all suggest I do? Sell the Tascam and get something else? I really would like to be able to control my DAW, but would like something that has more substance to it than just a control surface. If I was to sell the Tascam (which cost me €400) I could stretch my budget to €800.

Many thanks for your advice,


I'd like somethign similar, I have the DM24, but true to form with TASCAM, they bring something out and not long after abandon it. The DM does work as a control surface as well as mixer, with control over faders, mutes, solos etc. There used to be a very useful TASCAM forum, but that's vanished. There is the DM3200 but that pans out at about £1600 at least (used) and I believe even that, suffers from the LCD developing the dreaded lines.

I have been considering the Zoom R24 which functions as mixer/recorder/control surface. But it looks a bit 'toyish' that being said it got a good review on here.

There are the Yammy mixers too, with the 01V96 sometimes appearing in Reader's Ads for less than £1000, and as far as I know, functions as a control surface too. In fact I think in Cubase it is listed as one of the devices available, an inbuilt template I suppose.

I cannot understand why Yamaha ditched the 01X, I bought one of these very cheap just experimenting with, I only paid £125 for it, and everything works - with dedicated buttons that bring up the mixer, transport, faders work straight away. Once the MLAN is setup (and I got it working in Win7/32 quite easily) switch on start Cubase and off it goes - working very well. I suppose the N12 does a similar job?
