I have a bit of a probably unusual thing I want to do when I start (and close) Cubase.
I want to send a midi signal out to one of my controllers, which in turn changes the monitoring on my audio interface/mixer to disable monitoring, so I can use Cubase for monitoring and avoid the double sound from my interface.
Ideally I’d also like it to perform the reverse when I close the project, so I enable monitoring on my interface again (I do a fair bit of jamming without Cubase running as well, so this is important for me, and if possible I’d like to be able to let Cubase control this for me).
Strictly technically speaking, I have solved this already by making my own vst that is in my template, and on init, it sends a signal to my interface to disable it, and on closing (i.e. closing cubase) it sends the opposite signal…but I’d like not having to go this route as it feels a bit too hacky even for me.
So is there any way that I can make this happen in Cubase without magic tricks? I.e. when I open it up, send a midi signal, and when I close, send another midi signal.
