I’ve recently added a Mackie MCU (new unit, not used) which I’m enjoying quite a bit. However, I’m continually dealing with random instances where I move a fader and Cubase resists the movement. Alternatively I’ll move it and Cubase will snap it back to the original position.
And then, after some wiggling back and forth and perhaps a small amount of profanity, the problem goes away for a while.
- The MCU is set up in Cubase Mode
- I have the MCU connected via USB only, i.e. a power cable and USB cable going to the unit, no MIDI cables.
- The auto select on fader movement option is on, and I wonder if that contributes to the confusion.
- There are no other MIDI devices such as keyboards, etc. connected when this happens.
I haven’t put any kind of MIDI scope on it yet to debug at a deeper level as I don’t what software to use for this. I’m hoping others have fought this battle and can point me to something stupid I’m doing so I don’t have to go down the debugging rabbit hole, but I have my Elmer Fudd shotgun at the ready if necessary.
