  1. Hey gentlemen, I've been off for a few days, tryin' to become a beautiful lady, but.... I completely messed it up, so... I think it wouldn't work out with us. So sorry :cheer:
  2. Thanks gentleman for your honest comments on this! I think you are right, and it's best to build my own designed Pseudo-Mackie from scratch. So I'm going to search the forum for all related topics and see how far I can get... It would be great and very helpful, if I'd have the possibility to see one of you and your babies "live" at work. And to discuss a few things. Any chance to visit one of you guys somedays..? That'd be so cool! :) strinxx
  3. Thank you ilmenator, for showing up! Much appreciated! That's what I was thinking, too... though I hoped I could do it the easy way ;o) Whenever I have some time in the next few days, I'll have a deeper look inside the Houston and see what I'll find.. What part of the faders would be most interesting, by the way ... I mean for a picture? Are we looking for some kind of label on them? Thanks again for your help! strinxx
  4. Hi everybody! I'm new to this forum, and honestly, I'm completely blown off about what you guys are doing here! Awesome! I searched the web about kinda "turning the Houston into a Mackie", which brought me here, and what I saw was like "my dream finally came true"... sort of! What I would like to know, is, if it would be possible to keep the actual hardware (wich is of real good quality) of the Houston - enclosure, faders, LCD, knobs, jog-wheel, whatever - and just replace its "brain" (if it has some... ;o), to magically turn it into a Mackie control...? That would be so great, since I don't work with Cubase anymore (they rejected to support it anymore, anyway..) and the Houston doesn't have any Mackie-emulation mode. So my beloved controller is pretty much useless now... There might be a few issues, though: the LCD I think, has less numbers (is that the right word..?) compared to the Mackie, it has no timecode-display and no push-encoders. So what I really would like to replace, are the original encoders with push-encoders, and I would love to have a timecode-strip. If necessary, I'd replace the LCD as well, of course. Is this possible (that'd be just soooo great!), or would I need a complete set of new/ other hardware? Thanks ahead for any answer!
