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.

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.
