Problem Statement: Cubase limits mapping plugin parameters to only 8 Quick Controls, or more parameters, but with only certain pieces of hardware. The Generic Remote doesn’t allow for remote controlling all plugin parameters with all pieces of hardware.
Feature Request: I’d like something like Studio One’s Control Link functionality which works like this:
Any hardware controller can be mapped to any and all parameters of a plugin. No limit of 8 Quick Controls, no special hardware required.
Mappings are automatically retained and stored with each plugin behind the scenes
I’d like the ability to even combine mappings from multiple hardware controllers. Example: map some settings from my Novation Remote Zero SL along with some of the Controls on my Roland System-8 to a single plugin at the same time. [Note: Studio One doesn’t even allow for this.]
All mapping should be able to be done from the plugin GUI (i.e. no separate Remote Control Editor screen) - the only time the user should need to go into a different screen is the first time they setup their controller
When the plugin GUI is open and has focus - the mapping automatically becomes active - this is “Focus Mode”
If you’re not familiar with it, you can get an idea of how this works by watching one of the many videos on Control Link here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=woFOqHjoZ28
I feel like this would be far superior to Cubase’s current methods for controlling plugins and let users get more hands-on.
