Hi, is there a known set of devices that can be locked to the SSL mixer, so that you can utilise the "Remote Base Channel" functionality? Propellerhead's own KB article seemed a bit vague for me:
https://help.reasonstudios.com/hc/en-us ... -is-Remote

Currently I'm using this:
https://www.korg.com/uk/products/comput ... /index.php

The wireless bluetooth function is quite nice, keeps things tidy, but you can't lock it to the SLL mixer - having to manually map each fader and button in every project is a bit of a drag.

The Behringer X-Touch appears to be one that can be locked to the mixer - https://www.thomann.de/gb/behringer_x_touch.htm

I've noticed on YouTube that someone achieved a similar thing with an Akai Keyboard - but is there a definitive list?

Thanks.

You should be able to lock the Korg to the mixer as well as long as you have a remote codec. You could, for example modify the nanokontrol remote code for your controller.

I can modify the nanakontrol, yes. There's an editor, but what do I need to modify it to do?

The simplest thing to do would be to use the nano kontrol studio editor and change all cc message such that they send the same messages (CC and note messages) as the original nano kontrol. Since the two devices are quite similar (except for the big rotary), this should not be too hard.

Once you have done that, you can just use the reason nano kontrol remote codec with your nano kontrol studio. It should work immediately.
