I have another question related to my experimenting with the X-Touch Compact and Cubase 10. I’m wondering if using this (or any) controller as a Mackie Control device and then switching the unit to Generic Remote (without deselecting the device from Mackie Control) is problematic in Cubase. I ask because that’s what I’m currently trying to do.
I have the X-TC set up and working as a Mackie Control device - and I have also progammed a Generic Remote for it, which is also working exactly as it should. The trouble arises when I switch the X-TC from MC mode to Standard mode. I have discovered that all of the buttons on the X-TC will then send unwanted commands to Cubase, in addition to those programmed in my Generic Remote. So one button will start Cubase recording, others will zoom in and out. The only way I can stop this happening is if I go to the Studio Setup > Mackie Control dialogue in Cubase and deselect the X-TC.
This, obviously, significantly reduces the hands-on functionality of the X-TC. If I could use it in MC mode and then switch seamlessly to Standard mode (Generic Remote), it would be really flexible - but having to open up the Studio Setup dialogue to deselct Mackie Control mode each time is a serious fly in the ointment. I don’t know if it’s an issue with the X-Touch Compact, with Windows 10, with some driver conflict from another piece of hardware or if there’s something I can do in Cubase. It’s a strange one, for sure.
