Trying to automate an Ardour project, I read about control surfaces. My new Behringer UMX490 wasn’t supported to I went about creating a *.map file for it. I made some progress with this but wasn’t able to control all the parameters I wished to. I was following the instructions but couldn’t get it to work.
At this point I discovered the Ctl-middle click technique (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kS2xEp0mDt8), which enabled me to control everything I needed with out manually editing a *.map file. Unfortunately I can find no way of saving the mappings. Older versions of Ardour apparently had an “auto rebind controls” function under options->control surfaces. I’m unable to find this in Ardour 3.5.403. Is it hiding somewhere or is there an alternative? Sorry if I’ve missed something.
