Hello everyone. I’ve been trying to utilize Cubase’s Generic Remote capabilities over the last few days, in order to setup my midi controller pads to different shortucts and commands ( metronome on/off, navigation buttons, etc. ).
I found out that most of the possible commands that I can choose to control can be found under the File-Key Commands Section, but I couldn’t find there some commands and functions that want. So I have some questions regarding a couple of more… advanced settings.
Question 1: Is it possible to utilise a pad ( or a note, generally a CC signal ) as a modifier button? My main interest is to be able to use a pad as the alt, shift or control button in my pc, so I can have all the shortucts I use with the arrows and the mouse button when I use my keyboard.
More specifically, I want to be able to use the control+click and drag to duplicate audio tracks, or the shift + click in the bottom of a selected midi part in the midi editor, in order to duplicate it across a selected range.
Question 2: Is it possible to crate a macro that creates an instrument track, and then loads a specific instrument - or search and load a specific track preset? I want to be able to create tracks with the instruments I use a a lot by hitting a pad in the midi controller.
Question 3: Is it possible to rearrange the Generic Remote commands I use in the Generic Remote Editor? When I create a new one, it goes down the bottom, and when I decide to change something ( let’s say, the assigned CC number ), I have to search in a mess to find it. Is there a way to sort them out by name, or simply drag and drop them?
My system is Windows 8.1 and I run Cubase Artist 8.
