No buttons work in Cubase when pressed on the Oxy, not even the transport. Pressing the Auto button does nothing, and yes, have downloaded the M-Audio Directlink driver for Cubase. MIDI messages are incomming, as the blue bars light up with every press on every button, but they don’t do squat in the DAW.
Keyboard seems to work fine, but I bought it so I could have the seemless plug and play with Cubase as promised, so I really want to get all 30 controllers assigned. Not managed to assign a sinlge one!
Also, trying to even set up the MIDI Learn in Cubase has been a complete failiure. Not even able to assign one parameter to anything. I can’t make head nor tail of it. If a control is already assigned it will control a paramenter on a VST, but I have found no way to change them in the DAW.
Read the online manual, Oxy manual, watched online videos, but nothing has helped so far.
I’m not familiar with this but maybe a couple answers will jog my memory (or someone else’s) on something – Does this use the generic remote, and/or does Directlink add an entry to the list of remotes in Studio Setup?
Also, Are you referring to midi learn in the generic remote, or elsewhere?
Of course, you verified your midi connections? Often devices like this have multiple midi ports with different names and functions.
I have no idea, as I’ve not tried to set up a MIDI controller before. I’ve just used MIDI keyboards to play music on the keys. The reason I bought this one is because the knobs, buttons and faders are all supposed to be plug and play with Cubase.
I was reffering to MIDI Learn in Cubase, it has nothing to do with Directlink, as that is only (supposed to be) enabled when the Oxy is in Auto mode. Anyways, I’ve removed DL from my system now as it was clearly not working.
Messed around with Studio/Studio Set Up Track Quick & VST Quick Controls, all to no avail. Quick Controls and Note Expression in the Inspector, messed around with that, and can’t get anything working. Like I said, I can’t make head nor tail of it!
I need to map all the controllers manually, one by one, and save them as presets on the Oxy, but have no idea how to go about doing it in Cubase. Using the Oxy is pretty straight forward, I found a good tutorial on it on YouTube. But, I can’t find any information that’s understandable on how to do this in Cubase; the manual might as well be written in another language!
No, I mean completely and utterly useless in how to set it all up. It just tells you where it is and what the buttons do, but has nothing that would help in actually setting something up. Utterly bewildering!
Found this video, where a guy shows how to set up transport controls, will post it here if someone finds it useful. Still doesn’t explain what I need to know, not really.
How on earth am I supposed to use this keyboard to control different VSTs, as well as Cubase?
I followed that, and managed to get Directlink working in Cubase 11, however, it’s a case of one step forward and two steps back as when it is enabled I have no use of the keys on my Oxy and can’t play any instrumments. Changing the input to All MIDI allows use of both DL and Oxy keys, but the controls now affect both Cubase and the current VST at the same time, changing parameters on both simultaneously, which is not at all useable.
My answer was not about the script, if you read closely, it’s about the ‘Auto’ Mode on the keyboard.
I added the script, because it might have been helpful, sorry that it wasn’t.
Later I just answered your questions.
No need to be unfriendly if you don’t read closely yourself.
