Thanks for the tip. I looked into this system a while back when my 2200 was giving me problems, but it seems so complicated. I gave it anothe trial yesterday and in a few hours I was printing stepwedges to test ink densities for differrent processes. Once you get a hang of the program and spent some time messing with the different controls it is actually quite simple for printing diginegatives and gives you absolute control. I never liked the fact that light inks were used for printing negatives, as they contibute a lot of solvent but not much ink density.
I printed using black (no light balck) and yellow (there is only one yellow to begin with) inks with outstanding results. No ink puddling on very thin crystal clear transparency, which I use for gum negatives. I like black because it allows for easy registration, and also black's visual density is a god indicator of UV density. Addition of yellow ink smooths already excellent tonal gradations. I will try to print some more dense negatives on Pictorico today for palladium and carbon.
Thanks once again

Sure, you can set up the profile to use just one or as many inks as you choose.
