Use the Step Designer MIDI Insert, where you can define your own MIDI sequences (Patterns). You can trigger these sequences by MIDI Notes. C1 (Note Nr 36) triggers Pattern 1. C#1 (Note Nr. 37) triggers Pattern 2, etc. You can define up to 92 patterns.
I believe that the keyboard in the video is configured in a way that every key emits the same MIDI note message (which is then fed to a circuit that triggers — with every received message — a note or a chord (2 or more notes).
If you need to advance the notes in a melody (sequence containing only one note at a time), you could do the following in Cubase:
1. Add a Generic Remote device (Studio / Studio Setup)
If you can find a way to send a play command, followed by a stop command, and make each of the notes’ length correspond to the amount of time between them you could do it. Bome Midi Translator could do that. Maybe by combining @alin89c’s acoustic feedback trick in combination…
Or, (off the top of my head) some how munge the Cubase Step Entry function?
Wow, I haven’t been able to test @ alin89c’s option yet and there are more possible solutions. Thanks Steve! Let’s see if in the next few days I have time to investigate them and I am able to do so. Thank you all!
Hello! did you manage to route the midi sequence to another instrument that is not that “telephone sound” by default? sorry for the request, I’m a newbye, but what i managed was to have the midi sequence played as I hit whichever key on my controller, but without chances of play it with the sound , let’s say, of the grandpiano i have in my cubase. Thanks
I tried several combinations of “output” options, and also selected different channels, but what I get is always or the “sine-synth” sound following the sequence, or, at least, the overlap of the real note I play on the controller with the sound of the E-piano, plus the note in the sequence with the sound of the “sine-synth”.
Load it in slot 1. Then load instrument you want to use to slot 2. Go back to the Drop Midi instrument in slot 1 and press copy program button. If it goes well it should copy the instrument from slot 2.
