CMC QC Stepped knobs not smooth

So I’m trying to do filter sweeps with the Cubase eq or a filter pluggin and notice the the knob movement accelerates or decelerates depending on how fast you turn the knob. Is there a way to defeat this so I can do smooth filter sweeps without guessing how fast to turn the knob? I have an Akai LPD8 that is smoother but can’t replicate it with the CMC QC. Holding shift just makes it impossible to sweep with one turn.
