I’m currently trying to set up my A&H Zed R16 to operate a few MIDI controller functions with cubase and I’m not having much luck getting it to operate the transport functions.
I have set it up as a generic remote and have the faders on the R16 operating faders in the mixer within cubase and have successfully assigned a few buttons to change workspaces. But I cannot seem to get the R16 to work as a master to initiate transport functions within cubase 5.
I have gone into Transport / Project Sychronization Setup and under Machine Control Input i have ticked the MMC Slave Active, selected the ZED R Port 1 as MMC input, have the device ID as 127 which cubase picked up. But it doesn’t trigger the transport controls. I don’t get any MIDI activity showing in the transport bar when i press the transport buttons on the R16 either - but i do when pressing any of the other MIDI mappable buttons, but this could be because its transmitting MMC rather than MIDI?
I know that the R16 is transmitting the relevant MMC signals as i tested it in Logic by setting it up as an MMC master device and it worked straight away - so it must be some setting in cubase that I’m missing?
Any help greatly appreciated.
BTW running on mac pro OSX 10.5.8 - Cubase 5.5.2
