Yes TabSel also show me a good workaround “to control anything by anything”.
But for all these stuff you need virtualMIDI Ports, loopMIDI for example…
First of all: (once done never do it again)
create a Template with (however)16 Tracks but we just need the QCs so it doesnt metter wich kind.
give the tracks the names:
Now you set up a GericRemote and choose one of youre virtual-Midi-loop-back-Ports as input.
and when CC1 comes
it’s track 0-7 / QuickControl1
and CC2 = 0-7 / QC2
cc3 = 0-7 / QC3
and export this when done… also you can export youre created QC-Tracks…
it’s importent that those "QC"Tracks are allways at the beginning, because the Generic Remote will, if used, ever control the QuickControls fo the first 16 Channels (if you set up like i write) and when there is another track, the GenericRemote don’t care it controls the wrong 16th Channel 8th QuickControl… so just keep the tracks on top…
When you have done this: you can control anything by just “learning” and set the CC to the corresponding LoopBackQC (for example 8-15 / QC1 = CC8)
Example: Just create a Midi-Track set output to the LBQC and control what ever you want with (up to 128 things currently and more) with one midi-Track if you want. It just has to be automateable…
The most Cubase VSTs has no MIDI, and so this Workaround is often requierd… The note2cc plugin is interessting but it’s horrible to work with it… so it might be better to go here also 3rd party.
But with this (“selfmade”) Tools you can build “Synth” funktions inside Cubase wich can do much of editing automaticaly for you, because you can play anything you want, with anything you like, and dont have to create it by editing…
The following tools i find also very helpful for those things:
and the other Midi-Plugins in Cubase. To Transform anything to the CC you like… se what you do…
The powerful VST Plugin i know:
is a VST chainer and
a MIDI Tool and
and can be hostet as instrument, effekt, rewire and stand alone and its called Bidule. http://www.plogue.com/products/bidule/
MidiShapere is a LFO and an ENV http://www.cableguys.de/midi-shaper.html
With the AutoLFO Midi-Plugin in Cubase you can choose one CC = QC
but cubase has no Envs, and the MidiShaper can be used as “one”, is much more editable, and can control muliple QCs at once (with one instance).
