I use an 01V96 v2 with Pro Tools M-Powered v7.3.1cs1, and it works nicely as two HUI controllers. The 16 channel faders bank left and right in the mix window by either a single channel at a time or in groups of 16. The display has three pages, one showing pan position/channel name for the curent 16 channels, one showing the PT track levels for those 16 channels, and a third showing selected plug-in control.

it works great with Nuendo and cubase. You even get assignable keys. The faders are not touch sensitive but it never bothered me when i had an 01v96.

I used to use one (just sold it recently) - and it does the job.

01v <-> 01v96

I use an 01v daily with a Motu 896 (as lightbridge) and I've tried MIDIing it up, and it simply isn't up to the job of acting MIDI controller + audio interface at the same time.

There isn't enough flexibility in the way the channel controllers work (plus there's only 14 of them).

I'd get a Mackie Control or one of the Euphonix controllers - much better IMO.

I tried using one as a controller with Cubase. It was a bit clumsy so I decided not to bother. If it's ONLY a controller, it's not quite so bad. But having it to controlling plus audio at the same time is a serious pain that isn't worth it.
