I just installed Cubase 12 (after waiting a couple of days for the bottlenck to die down), and am relieved to see that the Mackie Control set up on my Tascam US-2400 controler is all still in place.
I wonder - will I now have to re-do all the midi mapping that I previously had set up as Generic Remote maps? It’s not a huge issue, and the new system looks so much better, but I’m just making sure before I start the process. Even with the new interface - it will be a big undertaking.
Second, you make your surface on the first screen, then hit the > and assign what you want each one to do. It’s very easy, and rather intuitive.
The only issue I have found so far is not being able to rename the MR. (in the GUI).
It’s no where near as much work as a GR was, so it goes a lot faster. You can take a screenshot of the GR and the follow along if you need to. I made pics of all of mine with labels a while ago so I just followed that.
Yes. Thanks for the replies. I discovered after I posted this that Generic Remote was still available. I don’t really mind setting up a new set of mappings (using my old XMLs for reference, if needed) - and the new interface is really nice to use.
Looks like I’ll probably still be using one or two Generic Remotes for the time being, as I’ve found a couple of omissions in the new Midi Remote’s assignable parameters - but I look forward to seeing how it develops.
More importantly to me - I just hope that Mackie Control doesn’t get retired any time soon!
I haven’t found that - yet. The main one I found was there’s no direct Record Pre-Count button mapping any more. You can do it via a keyboard shortcut - but that doesn’t work with the button lights on my X-Touch Mini.
I am in the process of replacing my Mackie HUI with a Tascam US-2400 in Cubase 12. I have it setup with three Mackie Controls and tow Generic Controls.
So far it is working as it should other than the Foot Switch Record function is not working. I am also not able to see how to configure a Start/Stop function as I could with the HUI. I play guitar and record myself most of the time and really need those functions. Do you have any ideas or suggestions?
Any input will be appreciated.
Thanks for the reply. Thats what I needed to know about the foot switch. As far as the Start/Stop function I mentioned, I had setup with the HUI a pedal with two momentary switches. One switch would Start/Stop the transport and the other was Record in an out. That made playing and recording guitar much easier. I had to add the second switch to the HUI. I will do the same to the US-2400 if I can figure out how to configure the button. I was not aware of the Compatibility Mode, I will check into that right away. How did you configure the Foot Switch in Cubase?
I configured it in Generic Remote simply by creating a new Generic Remote and setting the input to US-2400. The US-2400 has five ports, and different functions are mapped to different ports. The footswich input is on the first port, it seems.
I then deleted any controllers that were already listed in the new Generic Remote and added a single controller and hit Learn - Clicking on the footswitch will then show which value is being sent. For a sustain pedal, it’s a note on message. Then you can assign any function you want in the bottom panel. In this case, Transport > Device > Record.
Presumably, if you have a double pedal, you could create two controllers and assign a function to each.
Thanks for all the info. I just gave up on the US-2400 and sold it. I was able to get the foot switch to punch in record, but not punch out. I tried every possible configuration within the setup windows. I couldn’t get a start/stop function to work so without those functions it just didn’t work out for me. I went back to my Mackie HUI for not. I have a Tascam DM 4800 that I will experiment with soon. Thanks again.
I have a US-2400 and cubase 12. Most is working Only the function key’s behaving strange when mackie control is used. Is it possible to assign these or disable the mackie setting for these so I can assign them to something else. Second does anybody have a scribt where he is using more midiports for elements im the remote setting
