MetaGrid to MetaGrid Pro migration?

Has anyone transitioned from regular Metagrid to Pro? Is it possible to migrate my existing grids over? I’d rather not have to recreate them all.

Does Pro still use Generic Remotes to talk to Cubase?

Trying to figure out the tradeoff of new capabilities vs. maintaining what I’ve got.

Yes

Yes, via backup/share you can get your old grids on the new system and they work.
Metagrid Pro has a more versatile layout and I found my old grid resulted in uneven grid on the Pro so that some buttons are wider than others. Seems to be a different scaling of buttons and it does its best to fit. Will depend on your original grid layout. That said everything worked.

Does Pro still use Generic Remotes to talk to Cubase?
Yes, works in the same way. Though with the new CC faders, layout, etc you could do more.

Great!

Any downsides?

Just the layout tweak required - but you’ll probably wide up doing those anyway because the Pro version adds a lot more customisation.

I just noticed they have 1.0.5 beta for those in the beta program and it has a new "current channel’ bidirectional capability. The sample looks a bit like a CC121 (close, not quite). lots of channel controls… you can do a lot more in Pro.

Thanks. Guess it needs to go on the to-do list

metasystem just put up a new video on their youtube channel showing the new “current channel bidrectional capability”. Looks great.

This is the golden question at least for myself. Generic Remotes will eventually be history. I have posted this issue at the Metagrid forum.

I have hundreds of commands in just Generic Remote 3, not to mention the Metagrid provided commands in Remotes 1 and 2. I’ll assume eventually there will be tutorials to cover this, but so far nothing.

How will all these hundreds of commands be converted to the new C12 MIDI remote?
