    Hi Chris.

    Your best bet is to have your audio device output MIDI TimeCode (MTC). Then you can use Learn Timing on your cuelist to set the cue trigger times. Then every time the audio is played back and the timecode is received, the console will playback the cues perfectly timed with the audio. See the chapter 28 in the user manual for specifics on working with audio and timecode.

    MIDI Show Control (MSC) is generally used to trigger events on the console when you have a show control system that is capable of sending out MSC commands. Most Audio devices are not setup to do so.

    It depends on the audio console and what type of MIDI it is sending out. We use an Avid DigiDesign Profile to shoot MIDI notes to the Hog 3.

    Some audio consoles will also send out MSC (Midi Show Control) which is also supported on the Hog line. Some consoles only send out MMC (Midi Machine Control) which is not supported on the consoles. It all depends on the audio console.
