In a previous version of Cubase (maybe it was 6.0 or so) we had text scripts that defined external MIDI hardware including instruments like the Roland XP-80, Yamaha TG-500, etc. I spent a lot of time building a script for my XP-80 that had 4 expansion cards in it. Lot’s of typing and tweaking. You put these files in a folder (something like this C:\Users\Darren\AppData\Roaming\Steinberg\Cubase 7.5_64\Scripts) and then you would launch the MIDI Device Manager. THe Midi Device Manager would give you the option to install a new device. So if I called my text file script “Darren_XP_80” it would appear in the list.
Somewhere along the way Cubase seems to have changed this. yes there is still a Midi Device manager but when I throw my “Darren_XP_80” text file into the folder from the path C:\Users\Darren\AppData\Roaming\Steinberg\Cubase 7.5_64\Scripts" the Midi Device Manager cannot see my file. Now I’m reading that maybe these files need to be .xml files? But even when I throw a .xml file into this folder I cannot see it. It’s like the MIDI Device Manager only will display the defaults and not anything new that I have added in.
This is killing me. Does anyone have any information on how to get this to work. I have these beautiful .txt instrument definitions that I used to be able to use and now it seems like they don’t work.
Any help would be appreciated.
All the very best,
