After doing some extensive research and setup, I must admit that Cubase 6 built in Generic Mode remote source is kind of most underestimated function Cubase
In conjunction with BCR2000 you can really get nice results, even without emulated Mackie Mode. In fact, for us who always want to have values to appear in fixed form, it is a heaven.
I’m wondering one thing regarding possible button states/functions that Cubase Generic Remote allows. Under ‘Flags’ I can only select ‘Push Button’ , ‘Toggle’ or ‘Not Automated’. What I need is to set a ‘Increment’ function so that I can control buttons with 3 or more states. Not just ‘Toggle’. Please check attached image for clarification.
Exact what I want to avoid. I don’t want to throw away a BCR2000 encoder (continuous controllers) in Generic Mode on 3 state button… How much I can see in Generic Mode it I’m stuck with Cubase addressed ‘Flags’ for this. Or, I hope, not…
Of course, I can set button on midi controller to send increment +50 value on push. But than 2-state sources on VSTi doesn’t work. That is spoiling logic of having universal, single BCR2000 (or any other midi controller) preset and just set everything in Generic Mode banks in Cubase.
VSTi:s with more than 2-3 state buttons are very common so I guess this is a limitation of Cubase Generic Mode. I’m wondering if it is possible to add ‘Increment’ state of button under Cubase ‘Flags’ in ‘Device Setup >> Generic Remote’ windows?
