    Can anyone tell me if the QU16 will be useful as a midi controller for ilive editor? We have two R72 surfaces and two IDR32 mixracks, but often we just want to run a PC with Editor and a BCF2000 midi controller as our interface. If the QU16 can be used to replaced the BCF2000 we would definitely be interested in purchasing a couple of them.

    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

    Good idea…

    Ive checked the QU-16 FAQ:

    “Yes, standard MIDI control is tunnelled over the USB connection. All faders and a selection of the switches on the surface can be assigned to a DAW which supports MIDI control. Alternatively, a MIDI driver is available for use with the Ethernet port.”

    This means you can send midi commands at leased for the fader positions to the computer, but as long AH is not providing midi protocol document for QU-16, its not 100% sure, if you can use any rotary knobs for midi.

    Could someone, who owns a QU-16 already, check, if it sends out any midi command, if SEL button will be pressed or any rotary knob will be used?

    Hey,
    I got a comment back from the A&H distributor…

    “The faders, mutes, sel, pafl, etc send midi data over usb, so you can “MIDI learn” them in the editor. This will only work on a Mac, however, and there are no MIDI customization options through the QU-16 itself.”

    So we are using PCs… Next question. How soon will midi be implemented for the PC running editor??
