I just thought I would include this topic in case anyone is wondering or comes across the need for this information.
The M-Audio website no longer has a HyperControl driver for the Axiom Pro for Cubase. The last one released was for Cubase 6 (version 1.1.6). I would like to report, however, that version 1.1.6 still works just fine with Cubase 8 (so far as I have tested it out). The Transport controls all work, the mixer knobs and faders all work, the solo, mute, arm, track select, mixer channel bank select, etc., all seem to work. It even appears that the insert, sends, and VST Instrument, selection and editing works, although I did not delve too deep into these features because I can’t imagine why anyone would ever want to try to edit their plug-ins or instruments this way (given that Quick Controls are so much easier to set up and use).
Anyway, there is no installer but the file, “AxiomProCubaseHyperControl.dll” just needs to be copied to the Program Files\Steinberg\Cubase 8\Components" folder. Unfortunately, I don’t believe this file is even available on the M-Audio website anymore (I couldn’t find it) so if anyone needs it, let me know and I will provide it (it is only 139 KB).
I should also mention that there are HyperControl drivers for Axiom AIR for Cubase available, which just might work as well. I haven’t tried it as I have not needed to.
Here are the files…
Update: This driver still works up through Cubase 10. Just copy the file to the appropriate Cubase folder.
