I hope you can understand my English and give me an advice. I have Cubase Artist 7 and a Cakewalk A-300 Pro-Controller.
- Hook up the Controller and open Cubase
- Select the ,Cubase’’-Map in the Midi-Controller and select the ,Mackie Control’’ protocol under ,Device Setup’’
- Select for MIDI-Input ,A-Pro 2’’ and deactivate MIDI-Input A-Pro 2 by ,All MIDI-Inputs’’
I can now use the Faders for adjusting volume of the first 8 tracks.
I’m able to use a bank change (not sure how it’s called correctly) if i have 16 tracks in a cubase project. I can adjust the volume of track 9-16 after changing the bank.
My problem with Cubase: The CC value jumps directly by moving the fader of my controller.
- Adjust Volume loud with the first fader in Track 1
- Change bank and adjust Volume silent with the first fader in Track 9
- You want mixing while the song plays: You want adjust again the Volume in Track 1. You change the bank so you can control with the first fader again Track 1.
- The Volume of Track 1 jumps autmatically to a low level because the Fader is down.
I hope you understand my problem. I can’t work with my faders because it’s annoying to adjust the volume first again and then I can mix. The Dj program Traktor Pro has a function in the MIDI-Control-Setup called ,Soft Take Over’’. The value in the software changes if the Fader/Knob of the Midi-Controller reachs the value in the software.
Is something like that possible in Cubase? I hate this jumping of CC values and this problem exists also for my Motif XS. -.- Or is the only solution to have a controller with motorfader and LED knobs?
I hope somebody can help me
