I think that next/prev mark is a good  thing especially when you have a
shuttle (Contour Design) to control Ardour speed and position (thank's Sampo
for sxpress ;-) ). I was wondering something about marks : is there a way to
set-up a location marker directly with a BCF in Mackie mode ? I'll find it

What's a good speed for ffwd and rewind? +2 and -2?

+2 -2 seems to be good

I have some questions about the MCU mode :
- Has the MCU mode of Ardour been tested with something else than a BCF
(real Mackie or US2400 in emulation mode) ???
- With a real MCU will the lcd display work ??

And now for Paul and his fantastic devel team, My Ardour-BCF feed back:
I'm using Ardour for more than 5 years now and I bought my BCF2000 for it
more than 2 years ago. The first implementation of midi control in Ardour
was effective but setting-up a session with midi control was really
painful.Now with the MCU mode it's a real pleasure, but (there's always a
but) I think that the MCU should be a true image of the mixer window : If I
hide a strip I would like it to be removed from the controls, and of course
putted back when I show it again.
I don't know much of non linux softwares but I think that Cubase works this
About pan controls for stereo tracks, when I was using Ardour 0.9 I was used
to control the first cursor of pan an link the other one. Maybe the pan pot
could control the first cursor and the second when it's shifted. And why not
switching between link modes with a shift+ pan button ??
For more than 2 cursors I don't have a clue.

Well this it, thank's again for your wonderful work.


PS: sorry for my english :-(
