Hello again,

got some news:
> I checked "trace input" and "trace output" in the Options Dialog and I

> wrong, what option did I miss?

I installed Ardour2 and now Ardour sends MIDI messages (at least
according to its log on the console) although the DDX doesn't react at
all but that could be the fault of the DDX - I'll do some tests here.

> Another issue with the "mute" buttons: The DDX sends channel/command 104

> (each time with value=1 regarding to the input-trace). 

I checked the DDX's manual:

  Table 18.2 MIDI-Control Changes
    MIDI Controller no. 104 = Channel mute on
           channel no. 1-61 (channel 1-32, bus 1-16, aux 1-4, fxsend
1-4, fxreturn 1-4, master) as value, 0 = all
    MIDI Controller no. 105 = Channel mute off
           channel no. 1-61 as value, 0=all

Where in the source should I edit to adapt Ardour to this behaviour?

Thanks in advance,
  Helge Jung
