Looking for Mackie HUI to control Apple Final Cut Pro 5?
Mackie HUI is alive and well inside the Mackie Control Universal.
Compact Touch-Fader Master Controller
Baby HUI is the direct descendant of it's predecessor HUI
(Human User Interface). HUI was originally released by Mackie in 1997,
and quickly became one of the audio industry's first totally integrated
control surfaces for digital audio workstations. With a similar feature
set of single-button automation, editing, and navigational commands, complimented
with eight full-featured channel strips that feature a touch-sensitive
motorized fader, Baby HUI offers professional-grade features and capabilities
in a compact, affordable package.
WHAT IT DOES
Baby HUI is an eight-fader MIDI controller that provides in-depth mixing, automation, and navigational control for any digital audio workstation that supports the HUI™ MIDI mapping protocol. Designed as a smaller, scaled- down version of it's predecessor, Baby HUI supports all the major
features found on the original HUI - only in a smaller footprint and at a more affordable price point. Perfect fit for those DAW enthusiasts on a budget, or space-conscious engineers who have a very small area to use with a controller.
Baby HUI has eight channel strips that include a 60 mm touch-sensitive motorized fader, mute button, solo button, and a Signal LED. Each channel strip also has a multi-functional rotary encoder that can be used for pan or send level control, or can be pushed in (like a button) to
provide Channel Select, Record Arming, or Automation Arming functions. Baby HUI supports a full automation assignment section, display buttons, and Undo button and a Shift Modifier to double up certain controls. Basic navigational control can be achieved by using the tape-style transport and the
RTZ/END buttons, and any channel can be accessed with the Bank/ Channel Select buttons.
One of the key features of Baby HUI is the extensive software support that already exists among the various DAW platforms - today! Baby HUI will operate and interact with any software that supports the HUI MIDI Mapping protocol. This is a HUGE advantage over generic MIDI controllers that require
the user to map every single control with every software parameter - a process that can take hours away from being creative and enjoying the product. For any HUI-supported system, the user simply plugs Baby HUI into their computer's MIDI interface, accesses the control surface or console manager
within the software, and activates HUI as a controller. As long as the MIDI connections and software interfacing is correct, Baby HUI will "wake up " and allow itself to be used.
