correction. the scaling factor was ONLY for the scroll wheel. faders work
fine for me on an SSL Nucleus usng Mackie Control, which I strongly
recommend (Mackie Control (or the Nucleus if you want to pay for it :)

It does work... but only into the the mackie midi in. It only seems to expe=

Ardour has an internal scaling factor for those t=
