Launch Control Editor and Cubase

Is anyone using the Launch Control Editor?

If so, have you been able to get it working while Cubase is running. I was hoping to build some templates to control VSTs and it would be quick and simple if I could find a way to do this with the VSTs open and running.

As it is, if I open Cubase first and then the Launch Control Editor, only Cubase connects to the Launch Control hardware, if I open the Editor first then Cubase doesn’t seem to connect.

I’m successfully running an old editor for the Yamaha AN1x synth alongside Cubase and this didn’t require any setting up - they both use the same port quite happily.

I’m wondering if the problem is that the Launch Control connects to the PC via USB?

Any thoughts or possible solutions would be really helpful.
