Title: How to Setup Arturia MiniLab mkii with Pro Tools
Post by: ludrubru on January 14, 2021, 06:17:50 am
Hey everyone, this is my first post in a forum, ever.

I just got a MiniLab mkii the other day and wanted to share my setup. I wasn't able to find any information on how well the MiniLab can integrate with Pro Tools so I want to share my experience.
Good news: It works perfectly!

Info for Pro Tools users:

This is a great portable MIDI controller that can be fully setup to control Pro Tools. Iíve written out how Iíve setup my MiniLab mkii to have control of Transport, Faders, Pans, Solo, Mute, and Master Track Fader.

Iím running Pro Tools 2020 on a MacBook Pro with Catalina.

To get everything to work I had to change Peripherals>MIDI Controllers and set Type to M-Audio Keyboard. Receive and Send are Arturia MiniLab mkii
When in Midi Control Center perform a firmware update on your MiniLab MKII.
Iíve saved to Memory 2
Everything is to my preference, feel free to work outside the template Iíve written below.

The new firmware update (1.1.2) seems to have fixed this issue!
