I have tried. I have read the manual. I have watched maybe 15 videos about generic remotes, and quick controls, vst AND track quick controls and the remote control editor.
I do not know what I am seeing in the left side in the track inspector, the quick controls that are shown do NOT correspond in any order to the quick controls for either the Studio Setup > VST Quick Controls or the Studio Setup > Track Quick Controls.
I have tried ten times to set up the quick controls for a VST like Reason Rack Plugin, and it does NOT WORK. I know it’s a vague description, but let me now try to be precise.
The Quick Controls on the left side of the Cubase UI, in the “Inspector” does not even say “this is the track quick controls” or “this is the vst quick controls”, but there are both vst quick control and track quick control items in Studio Setup, I have both set up to not have any device set up, and that’s the only time that the feature works as I would expect. If no device is mapped as Track Quick Controls you don’t have track quick controls, or vst quick controls. If I try to map either one to a real device, everything goes completely weird.
If I map VST Quick Controls to my Arturia beatstep, I can “learn” knobs 1 to 8, as Quick Control 1 to 8, but the 8 quick controls do NOT correspond either to the VST knobs in the VSTi rack on the right nor to the quick controls on the left.
Is there somewhere a sane set of tutorials in english or even Klingon, for that matter, that are clear and concise on how to set this up?
I am currently at the point where turning the first two knobs on the controller both affect the first parameter in the inspector > Quick Controls and both the first two knobs on the VSTI panel are mapped to the same parameter and I have no idea how they got mapped to anything at all, since the UI is completely and utterly bonkers insane and completely impossible to understand.
No matter what I do, quick control 3 seems to be hard coded to my main keyboards expression wheel.
So lost. HELP. I feel like I am missing key information like “VST Quick Controls are a joke, and don’t even work, don’t try it”.
