Tascam FW-1884 Mackie Protocol a Bit Off, Wrong, Documenting Some Bugs

My Tascam FW-1884 Mackie Protocol Emulation is a bit off / wrong. I'm going to document some of the bugs. If you have the same or others please add them.


To Play from Paused location, i.e. 'Continue', I use [Undo] + [Play] (supposed to be [Shift] + [Play]).

[<< Locate] enables Punch Out.

[Locate >>] is Nothing.

[In] is << Locate.

[Out] is Locate >>.

[Set] is Nothing. Also, [Set] + [In] or [Out] I would expect would set In and Out points/markers and out points but does nothing

Next step is to see what I can fix with my own User Remote Midi Script...

    The fw1884 won't work fully with ableton. Have had it for years now, and most basic controls work fine, but f.i. The shortcuts section does not work the way it is supposed to. I also tried custom midi scripts and midi translators, but somehow there's always something wrong. However, transport section, some view- buttons, navigation, faders, etc. All work great after installing the latest firmware and drivers.

    So if you do find a way to get it all to work, please let me know :-)
