Thanks for your response.
Seems like I have to mess around quite a bit to get the meters back then.
I have a Mackie Controller and an extender and there are no X-touch profiles with extenders…
I will try this but my real concern is whether this move to omit the meters is inevitable and the best thing to do. I filed a mantis ticket too to make sure this is reviewed again.
In 5.12 the Mackie Control have it’s meters working and there are also working signal leds indicating signal. Totally useful and gives a nice interaction with the control surface.
In git head, both these features are gone. I do not understand the reasoning behind the decision but I have not been active on IRC so I have probably missed the debate if there has been one.
The signal LEDs was necessary IMHO so could they be reestablished ?
(As a fresh owner of my Mackie devices I feel like I jumped a train that is heading for the scrap yard re. Mackie Control unless I go for really fresh X-touch or other modern hardware. Is that necessary to have the best user experience, the I have to reconsider my way of thinking and reuse old but fully working hardware. Which in part is usually a great thing with using Linux and rely on kernel drivers and a community that is not removing supported stuff unless there is a technically strong motivation)
