I want to personally thank Paul and every developer of Ardour, you are simply great!
I noticed a strange behaviour with Ardour 3, compared to Ardour 2.8, with my Behringer BCR2000 (the rotary one, not the one with faders).
In Ardour 3 if I switch on the CC midi feedback, the controls became slow, it seems that for every value that is sended to Ardour, Ardour sends it back immediately to the BCR, in a sort of midi “echo”. The risult is that when i rotate the knob, I have to rotate it many many times, until a midi value > of 80-90, then it becames smooth. This happens only when I increase the values, turning the knob clockwise. When decreasing it runs quite smooth.
This behaviour is not present in Ardour 2.8, where i can turn on feedback and there’s no “echo”. When turn the knob I can increase and decrease smoothly.
I tried different kind of configurations, but this strange behaviour always happens. Is a well defined Ardour 3 behaviour?
And another question… Is it possible to send all Ardour mixer midi values to the BCR2000 with a button, or a command? When I load a session, my BCR don’t move anyhing (i connect the midi to the BCR BEFORE loading the session), the Ardour values are not displayed/sent to BCR, and when I rotate a knob on BCR after a session load, I don’t see the value on Ardour changing until i raise the exact midi value stored on Ardour with the knob. I.e: The saved channel1 out level is 95, the BCR is set tho 100, i turn anti-clockwise the knob on BCR, till i reach 95, and then i can see the fader on Ardour moving.
These are not terrible problems, Ardour is an amazing professional DAW and I love it! I’m just asking those things because I’m quite sure that I’m doing something wrong.
Thanks in advance!
