Just in case anyones actually following this thread or stumbles into similar issues. My reply came in today from NEKTAR. Although we still have no idea what caused my initial glitch (now fixed)… This is the limitation restricting learnable controls in VST’s such as SPIRE.
"Cubase will only present the first 256 parameters associated with an instrument (or 88 effect parameters)."
The good news is…
"We can reorder the parameters in the Remote Editor."
And, it really is simple. Open remote editor from the VST, activate learn in remote editor, select a knob we don’t need in remote editor, twiddle the dial we need in the VST, click apply, now the P6 can grab that knob… learning it!
So my next question is… will Steingberg raise the 256/88 limit in a future update, but I’ll start a new thread for that.
