DigiDesign Command8 USB mixer

Post by zenseidk »


I just purchased some old used DigiDesign gear at a ridiculously low price after doing a quick search that seemed to confirm that there was support for the stuff.

I bought for around 140 USD:
1xMBox2 usb soundcard
1xCommand8 USB mixer/DAW controller
1xM-Audio Axiom 25 USB midi keyboard

I was really only after the Command8 and the midi keyboard.

I see in dmesg that the command8 loads fine. But I can’t seem to get the right behaviour out of it.
When I assign the faders, they don’t repond right. When I put my finger on the fader, the volume goes to 10% and does not react to slides of the fader.

Is there known instances of success or midi-maps out there for the Command8 ?

I can live without the soundcard, as I just purchased a Behringer UMC404HD, but it would be nice to get it working, if possible to compare sound quality.
The MBox 2 loads on occation, but not every time.

The M-Audio Axiom works ok so far, I had already just purchased a newer version, also used.
