Bluaudio D8Bridge MCU Emulator for D8B to v1.1 (MIDI DAW Remote ControllerConsole Emulation)

 

Bluaudio has released version 1.1 of D8Bridge, software that converts your old Mackie D8B digital mixer into a modern, full-fledged DAW control surface.

D8Bridge communicates directly with your D8B mixer using its "Console Data" port via a custom serial cable. When a user touches a knob, a fader or a button, the software converts the commands into a more modern universal control protocol. This protocol is the "Mackie Control Universal" and it's compatible with most DAW software available on the market.

The Mackie Control hardware units have 9 faders total, 8 channels plus one master fader. To be able to use all of the D8B's 25 faders, they are emulating 3 complete units. It's like having 3 MCUs in one big box.

Changes and Updates in version 1.1:

  • Fader routine/calculation redone for smoother operation (and fixes fader jumps).

  • MCU init routine working now! (Fixed Cakewalk Sonar Compatibility).

  • Pans are cleared out when D8B booting (might cause weird pans and such).

  • Unmapped buttons now don't send "RecRdy Off" anymore.

  • A lot of minor cosmetic changes here and there.

  • Complete rewrite of the meter bridge routine (Faster, no more flicker).

  • Added "Fast Faders" option (undocumented d8b feature!).

  • Added automatic launch of DAW software (just add your DAW path in DAW.TXT).

  • Added Select Hold for automation write (disable motors/fader touch emulation).

  • Added support for channel display / assignment (the 2 digits now is 100% MCU).

  • Changed the 5 seconds delay to a OK box in "Test Leds".

  • Added "MCU Init" LEDs state in main window.

  • Two "format" will be available for the application, 32 and 64bit.

 

What is D8Bridge?

The Event List view shows events in a list format. You can insert, delete, or modify any kind of event, including notes, pitch-wheel data, velocity, MIDI controllers, patch changes, Wave files, lyrics, text strings, MCI commands, System Exclusive meta-events, and more. There are three ways to open the Event List view:  Select one or more tracks and choose View-Event List -- Select one or more tracks and click  in the Views toolbar  -- Right-click a clip in the Clips pane and choose View-Event List from the popup menu  -- The events in the selected tracks are listed one per line, from top to bottom. As you move the highlight through the event list, SONAR updates the Now marker (time display). During playback, the event list scrolls to display the events at the current time. The current event is centered in the Event List during playback, and the highlight is on the correct event when playback stops. Any time you change the Now time, the event list is updated and the highlight is moved to the event that will be played next.  When the Event List view includes more than one track, events are mixed together in chronological order. For example, if you select tracks 1 and 3 when you open the Event List view, you see a single list of intermingled events from tracks 1 and 3. You can have any number of Event List views, each containing any number of tracks, open at the same time. You can change the tracks shown in the Event List view by clicking the  button and choosing the tracks you want.
