I’m testing using generic remote to setup a Console 1 type controller for specific plugins in a template, like explained in this article:
I’m using the buttons and endless rotary encoders on a Novation Zero SL MkII in generic midi mode (no Automap) to test this. If I’m able to get this working I’ll pick up a couple of Midi Fighter Twisters.
I have a template with the same plugins in the same slots on every track (Eiosis AirEQ for example) and have assigned the hardware knobs and buttons to plugin controls. In generic remote I’m using the VST Mixer device and Selected channel. So far this works great for controlling the plugin parameters of the selected track from the hardware, but I’m not getting any feedback to the hardware from Cubase. Is there a way to have Cubase send the current value of the plugin parameters so that the LED’s around the encoders get updated to show the currently selected track’s settings? I have the Transmit and Receive flags enabled for each control.
I’m not sure if this is something that generic remote is capable of, or if a command or function needs to be executed in Cubase to force the settings to be sent out to the controller? Any help on this is greatly appreciated, I’ve done a lot of searching here and reading about various generic remote issues, but couldn’t find anything specifically about this.
I’m on macOS High Sierra and Cubase 9.5 btw.
