I have had a Platform M+ and D2 combo for a few weeks now. Build quality is good and functionality runs as expected. I’m running the latest Cubase 11 on a Mac, everything works great (MCU mode) except that the volume data is not shown on the D2 display. When I checked with iCON, they replied:
This is definitely a Steinberg issue. Our hardware is using Mackie Control Protocol to interface with the DAW software. The hardware can only show what the software coding (script) allows it to display. Unfortunately, a hardware update will not help this issue. The source of this stems from the DAW manufacturer. This same issue may not hold true with other DAW manufacturers (i.e Pro Tools).
Do you plan to add something like this in the future updates?
