My MIDI Controller, Akai Advance 49, has a set of eight push button switches assigned to a MIDI Channel set to transmit a MIDI CC when pressed. (I’ve used eight open MIDI CC, all the switches transmit on the same MIDI channel).
In my Generic Remote for the Switches, I’ve assigned functions to the switches for the first Bank of the Switches Generic Remote. That all works perfectly.
My question is regarding the Banks in the GR. If I assign a new set of Functions to the Switches in a New Bank in the Generic Remote, will Cubase use the Values in the Banks even if the MIDI Channel and Controller messages is the same in all GR Banks with only the assignments changing? If yes, then, in theory, I’d be able to put the GR on Screen and just flip the Banks to have the switches change functions.
The MIDI Controller itself only provides one set of eight switches and no internal “banks,” for them.
What I’d like is something like this if that is possible:
Generic Remote Bank 1: Switches 1-8 – MIDI Channel 1 - Controller x 8 - Command or Function assignments, set 1, Bank 1
Generic Remote Bank 2: Switches 1-8 – MIDI Channel 1 - Controller x 8 - Command or Function assignments, set 2, Bank 2
and so on…
Do you know if the GR Banks can have shared MIDI Channel and Controller messages, but different sets of assignments in the GR Banks? I honestly can’t tell from the OM and haven’t found any posts/videos on this. Thanks for any suggestions or guidance with this.
