Cakewalk will work fine. What you have to do, is find out what MIDI messages the preamp will respond to.
If it uses standard MIDI controllers, you can simply set up a track for the preamp, and insert the proper
controller messages (ie. volume = cc#7).
If the preamp uses system exclusive (SYSEX), you need the binary code from the manual.
You can then create the sysex data in Cakewalk Sysex View, and store them in the MIDI
