I apologize in advance in case my question sounds convoluted…
I’m trying to decide whether a BCF2000 or an X-Touch Compact would be better suited to my needs (for Cubase Pro 9.5).
I need to be able to do the following:
- Change the expression, dynamics, and volume for my Spitfire samples that are actually not in Cubase, but are loaded within Kontakt, which itself is loaded into Vienna Ensemble Pro 5, which itself is on a slave machine.
- I will also need to do the same as above, except with VE Pro 5 loaded on the host machine, not on the slave (mobile rig).
- Manipulate analogous controls as mentioned above, but for in-the-box plugins like Halion Sonic virtual instruments within Cubase.
- Manipulate track faders in Cubase.
- open, close, and select virtual instruments that are in-the-box in Cubase.
- open, close, and select 3rd party plugins in Cubase, like UAD or VSL or VE Pro.
- control those 12-band EQ thingies and all the other in-the-box Cubase plugins and fx.
- control the transport controls of Cubase via the control surface mixer.
- panning within Cubase
- switching between tracks
- …I heard “touch sensitive” is a good thing(?)
- …I heard motorized faders are a plus(?)
- …I heard it is better to use the faders to write CC automation rather than “DAW Host Automation”???
Thank you so much for your time!
