I am trying to set up a BCR 2000 to control different softsynths using the Generic Remote feature in Cubase 7. My problem is that after creating my map in the Device Setup, everything looks and works fine, but when I close and reopen Cubase, some (not all) of the mappings are messed up - the MIDI controllers are still there, but they’re not mapped to anything anymore, or to the wrong parameters. Interestingly it’s always the same mappings that disappear/change, not matter how often I re-map them.
I’ve tried to export the mappings as XML as soon as everything seems to be working, but even when I’m loading the seemingly clean XML file after re-launching Cubase, the mappings are corrupt.
I’ve been wondering if a reason might be that during the process of creating the map I loaded the XML file into an editor (Aptana) because in certain cases it’s way faster to edit it that way than using the Device Setup window. But the code looks fine to me, and when I export it from Cubase it should be clean again (I guess), but it still keeps messing up things.
Another thing I was wondering about was if my setup is too “extensive”. Right now I have about 200 controllers mapped to different parameters, maybe that’s too much to handle…? (If it’s of any help here, I can elaborate a little more on my setup.)
I’ve already spent a lot of time working on this setup, so any help or hint would be highly appreciated! Thank you so much!
