2404 Mixer with Reason 9.5 DAW - control of internal mixer levels from external controls.

Hi Guys - i have just purchased a 2404 Live 24 Channel mixer. I am using Reason 9.5. My aim is to use it as an external mixer instead of using the "in the box" solution with Reason itself, as an improvement to my work flow. I know it is obviously USB connected, I have checked the limited list in Reason and seen that the 2404 is not a supported control surface listed. But I know this isn't a problem as you can manually add - my question is, am I going to be able to control the internal mixer channel by channel in my workflow on the 2404 directly so I can use as a hands on solution to control my levels of my tracks within the DAW itself? - thanks in advance

  • Hi Ian.

    No idea why it takes so long for answers here.

    But for what it's worth here's my "two cents":

    I doubt it. To the best of my knowledge the USB connection only sends and receives audio (main mix or sub mix) so I don't see how the mixer would be able to send individual channel fader information to your DAW (but I must add that my input is based on my, rather short, experience with a LIVE802 but, this being said, I did download the LIVE2404 manual to check for you and it's the same series of mixer).

    If I'm wrong on the above: I'm happy for you (but I don't think I am!!! LOL!!!).

    Regards,

    Dale.

  • Hi Ian,

    Sorry for the delay. Dale is correct. The USB connection on the 2404 will only send and receive audio. It will not send MIDI data from the faders. However, I'll be happy to submit this as a feature request.
