I emailed the guy who created it but never got a reply. The buy option on the website was actually missing last time I checked, seeing he probably doesn't want trouble from people buying it and it not working on a newer OS. I tried many ways of getting in touch, even offering others to pay to use their license (seeing I run Mojave),but never got a reply. The free version is limited to only a few blocks.

Eventually I found an old dodgy youtube video with a serial number/activation code in the description that actually worked! I tried everything to contact and pay for it, so I don't think I did anything wrong, just found that video. Small developers especially should be paid of course.

You can download the trial version from the website still, so that's how I got it in the first place.

It doesn't actually really use midi (it can send midi but this still wouldn't work with using Pro Tools) but instead macro key and mouse commands. You can use screenshots and coordinates to assign paramaters etc. Pro Tools will think it's your mouse. It's really easy to use. If you google controllermate pro tools some videos will pop up. Good luck!
Working on getting a Mojave system working with a controller (K-Mix) and found this link to Controllermate.
