Thanks, Joe.
BTW, I had an interesting time with the transport buttons when I was
getting this to work. At first I just started with an unused preset and
manually copied the transport button settings from preset 2 to the new
one after I had made the other settings per your article. I just
couldn't get that to work. When I tried to use the BCF Learn function to
set them the 'Type' came up on the BCF as 'spc'(if I remember
correctly)??. When I copied the whole preset #2 to a new location and
edited the faders, pans etc. the transport buttons worked fine. Do you
understand what that's about? I sure don't.
