I would like to point out that the device has two modes: Mackie mode (to support music applications) and standard mode (where it is just an I/O device with 16 encoders and 48 switches in two banks of 8 and 24 respectively, where 32 of the switches have independent LEDs in two banks of 16. It also has two sliders, one in eack bank). It doesn't require any additional hardware to interface - it's plug and play. But, it's not a Joystick - it's like a throttle quadrant with no hat switches.
I hope this clarifies what it is and what it isn't. I would just like to know if I can access it from AM?

A throttle quadrant is just a joystick from a USB HID perspective. I guess my question would be does it appear in the OS as a game controller. Whatever the answer it’s the same as will AM interface with it. So if Game controller in OS then Yes else No. Note though that AM only supports the first standard 32 buttons and as Gilles mentioned earlier you won’t get control over the LED’s this way.

Hi Tony, not sure for this, it's rather an USB Midi controller using native Mackie mode
Further there's LEDs on it, which wouldn't be handled in a Joystick mode if it were able, though they're currently handled using default MIDI CC messages
Understand. I was out and about at the time and didn’t check it out which us why I said if it is.
Right Tony, not read carefully the precision of language, due to my evident lack of English knowledge, mostly in a hurry I don't take time to use Ggl translation or deepl in both ways, yes I know I shouldn't ... 🙃

Thanks Joe - I guess it's SPAD.neXt! I keep looking for things that will make AM more universal. The reason I bought it (the X-Touch Mini) was because there are a ton of buttons (which incidently, you can make individually momentary or toggle), encoders (which you can change the limits on), and lights. With SPAD I can 'completely' control any G1000 on one layer, leaving the second layer for switches on the airplane!
