I am new in this community and currently trying to get hardware working, especially the external Mackie Controller in Cubase 10 (Windows 7). Many controls are already working.
But one thing made my brain stall.
With Generic Remote, Decrementing values (e.g. for Panning) with rotary knobs is not working correclty. Either it goes down in 4 steps, or even in 1 step. Incrementing is working fine. Strange. Where is the problem?
A bit of background:
To exclude mal-functioning of the controller: Adding the external controler as a Mackie Control remote device, every thing works fine. Panning, fading, On/Off etc… The draw back with MC is, that you cannot re-assign controls. AFAIK, it is frozen, except a couple of function keys.
Then I started digging into Generic Remote and spent already hours, as many others too here in the community.
Got many things to work. E.g. Faders with 14-bit resolution. The “Learn” for the Rotary Buttons worked also.
But I failed to get the Panning done smoothly. Left to Right is fine. But “Right to left” happens in either one single or at most three big steps. Not at all smoothly.
What I figured out with Midi-Ox is, that a CC message " B0 10 01" is sent for clock-wise rotation (Increments), and “B0 10 41” is sent for counter clock wise rotation (decrements).
The missing bit is, how to map control messages of rotary knobs correctly to the Pan function of the mixer.
Thanks in advance and best regards,
