I have an application, where I use “Transport” “Step Bar” to navigate in the project.
In the old Generic Remote, I can send “Step Bar” as fast as I want and if I fire it 50 times, the song position has moved 50 times.
When I use the “Transport” “Step Bar” in the new Midi Remote, it swallow events, when send quickly. So when I am at the song start and want to bar 100 and fire “Step Bar” 100 times, I am still at the beginning of the song. One “Step Bar” gets executed, the others get swallowed. A delay of about 50ms between the “Step Bar” commands would be needed for reliable operation. But that would result in 5sec instead of going to Bar 100 intermediately.
I hope that this problem is solved, before the old Generic Remote gets remove.
It is an executable using a virtual midi cable to connect to Midi Remote. And the important thing is the speed, at which MIDI messages need to be sent. With old Generic Remote, I could send message very fast and no message was dropped/ignored. With new Midi Remote, I need to send message very slowly, otherwise many message get lost and never executed by Cubase.
Here is an excerpt from my script.
var buttonTransport_StepBar = deviceDriver.mSurface.makeButton(6,1,1,1)
page.makeCommandBinding(buttonTransport_StepBar.mSurfaceValue,'Transport', 'Step Bar')
var buttonTransport_StepBackBar = deviceDriver.mSurface.makeButton(7,1,1,1)
page.makeCommandBinding(buttonTransport_StepBackBar.mSurfaceValue,'Transport', 'Step Back Bar')
