MCU Functions Expanded in 7.5

Personally I’m more than fine with it.

Me too!

^Me too. Finally have pretty decent functionality back with my MCU and extenders. Anyone know how one would go about getting a professional looking overlay for the MCU with the updated features?

If somebody has excellent graphics design skills there are services . . .

. . etc.

If a number of us wanted them it would reduce the cost, perhaps.

Google “cutting custom paper overlays”
is what I did.


Where did you learn of all the changes? Is it in the manual?

On a related note, since many of us spend hours setting up the customized Remote Control Editor for each plug in, (I don’t like the defaults) does anyone know where this data is stored?

I looked on my 3 page list of places where Steinberg stores stuff, and nothing is mentioned about the Remote Control editor.

When my C drive crashes and I have to install Cubase on a new drive I want to be able to retrieve this from my external back up drive, but I don’t know where it’s located.

I’m on Windows 7. Thank you!

No. I noticed things had changed when I first booted 7.5 and just started pushing buttons.
The manual was slightly inaccurate BEFORE the changes.
Now it’s a mess.

Shift for me is “undo” now. I’m using a mackie control emulation in Lemur

The data ist stored in:

There are the XMLs of the Remote Control Editor .

I wish that Steinberg make extended use of the RCE .
Hopefully they make the controls under Generic Remote available (not just the 8 VSTi Quickcontrols) .
I don´t like the RCE Mackie Control Integration , it is´t very handy (too much buttons to press).
My personal Idea would be a Editor Window focused Remote Control Editor page switch.
For example you have a VSTi Editor Window in front (focused) the controller would automatically assign the releated RCE Page.
Then if you switch to a insertplugin editor focus the controls switch automatically to that RCE Page.
That would be a livesaver for me :smiley: .
Then they just have to program a lock button to lock the controls to the last plugin that was focused, so any new plugineditor in focus didn´t switch the controls any more.

Then a control dream would come true :slight_smile:

If anyone from Steinberg is reading this, please post a basic list of Mackie functions in 7.5? I wish I had a few hours to kill to discover everything, but in this day and age there really isn’t a reason not to have this stuff documented. Thanks!


It doesn’t have to be a swish pdf document; perfect in its presentation. Just a table of features and key commands.

Parlanchin :slight_smile:

+1 on the new function explained !

+1 ^ That would be very helpful and should be very easy for them to generate in PDF format.

Provided they have it written down somewhere…

I reiterate: a table of features and key commands in a rough format (.txt, excel…) would suffice.


If anyone wishes to go back to the old behavior (pre 7.5) it’s very easy to do so with just a few mouse clicks.

Look at post #2.
This thread is for the Qcon, but the OP here HughH, has confirmed the Mackie goes back to the old state as well.

A quick note . .

For those using an actual MCU Pro or XT Pro version 4.0 or higher there is a firmware update available to v 4.03.

Ran across it by accident searching for something else.

It’s supposed to improve/smooth fader operation and a couple other things.
Edit: Wow! Updated all 3 of my units and it DEFINITLY smooths fader operation. Like you oiled them or something . . .

Don’t you love it when a company continues to improve a product that already ROCKS?
RME comes to mind, also . . . .

And, OH! Wait!


THANK YOU!!! This worked to get my banks back in my Lemur template!

so is it safe to say that the MCU pro’s are working well with C7.5 Hugh ?

Yes of course!

More than just an affirming “yes”.

I’m loving it. Turning “monitor” on and off for channels. Tweaking things in the channels strip - which I mentioned somewhere else I’m using a lot more now that it’s so easy . . it was soo tiny before for the mouse.
Also using quick controls more - for VSTis and other - Shift/Master gets me there in a flash.
It goes on . .

Damn . . . I’m sounding like Freddie H here . . . without the emoticons . .

Love ya, Freddie.
