Disaster Area Designs DMC-6D Expression Input Tutorial
The DMC-6D is designed to control Ableton Live or other DAW software. The DMC-6D features a USB MIDI interface that also powers the DMC-6D. It also has an industry-standard 5-pin DIN MIDI port.
The DMC-6D bridges the data from the USB MIDI interface to the DIN MIDI interface internally, so you can send program changes (PC,) continuous controllers (CC,) notes, or MIDI clock from your DAW to an external device without needing a separate MIDI interface.
