    Hi.

    I would like to adjust the sliders of Mono Mix on 3551a using Virtual MIDI Sliders.

    Russ, can you please explain the procedure?

    Virtual MIDI Sliders doesn't list any kx Control device, just kx Synth, kx Synth2 and kx Uart.

    I am using 3551a and Windows7 32bit with SB0060.

    This is my DSP: http://i45.tinypic.com/nl4dx0.jpg

    Sorry I do not know much about kX Automation on Windows 7, but without kX Control it is not going to be possible. Do other MIDI apps show kX Control? It may be a kX bug...

    As for setting up kX Automation (if you had access to kX Control), the kX Automation settings I tested (with FxMix2) are shown in the picture in the other post. You just set Virtual MIDI Sliders to use the same controller numbers (and channel numbers) for each of the sliders you want to use (e.g. Slider 1 set to use Controller 1/Channel 1, Slider 2 set to use Controller 2/Channel 1, etc. Whatever settings you used in kX Automation for the Mono Mix plugin.).

    Which Windows OS is your screenshot from? Windows XP?

    I haven't had tried kx MIDI at all before and I am not sure which other application I can try other than Virtual MIDI Sliders for the purpose.

    Yes, it is Windows XP.

    As for other MIDI applications, I am just wondering if kX Control is shown as an available MIDI port in any other application, or if it is missing entirely.

    Any other Windows 7 users able to use kX Automation?

    [EDIT]
    Just found this thread: http://www.hardwareheaven.com/gener...trange-behavior-kx-automation-10-band-eq.html, so apparently kX Automation does work in Windows 7 (64 bit anyway) with 3551a.

    kx Control neither shows in midi-ox here.
    Do I have to launch kx control somehow?
    For example have the kx Automation window opened before I launch the MIDI app?

    This is how my kx Automation window looks : http://i45.tinypic.com/jfyjhi.jpg

    Maybe I need to connect something at kx DSP?
    I have had never used kx Automation before.

    I would try re-installing kX (assuming other Win7 32 bit users do not have same problem). Install using "Run as administrator" so you can be sure it has the proper permissions to do what it needs to do, etc.

    As for kX Automation, you should not have to do anything special, as long as you have a plugin(s) loaded in the DSP, the kX Automation window should not be blank like that.
