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.
At the moment you cannot convert/migrate from Generic Remote or Mackie Remote to the new MIDI Remote system automatically. That’s why it’s still there.
First, you don’t have to just yet.
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.
If you could, then there would be the issue of what the surface looked like, and how that mapping was done. I think it’s NPC.
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!
Like… Monitor, and Read do not work on MIDI tracks…?
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.
Interesting that the Generic Remote pages have a warning on the page. But other controllers on the Legacy list like Mackie and CMC have no warning.
I suppose because Mackie (and maybe CMC - I don’t know) are more fixed protocols, with hard wired functionality - not really editable in the way Generic Remotes are.
As far as my US-2400 goes, you couldn’t replicate the way its Mackie Control integrates with Cubase using MIDI Remote.
, without writing Java Script.
I hope that doesn’t become necessary any time soon.
