I have a VST plugin and I have been spending days (weeks? Months?) simply trying to map a single button within the VST to a midi controller.
I had to give up on mapping a computer keyboard button to the VST because Cubase can’t do that even though it is the simplest thing to do in Ableton.
Now I’m trying to do the trivial job of mapping the button to a midi controller.
The VST is an insert in my master Stereo Output. I have the button mapped to a “quick control” on the track itself but I am not able to toggle the button unless I have a focus on the track in the track inspector.
Is there a way to make a midi controller always control a button on the VST insert regardless of what track I am focused on? This is literally a job that takes 2 seconds in Ableton. Such a shame. Will a “generic remote” achieve this? All I’m trying to do is set up a dang button in Metagrid to be able to toggle between my reference track VST and my regular output.
