MIDI Remote Mapping Pages indicator

So we have these really great MIDI Remote surfaces now with mappings and a great feature is multiple mapping pages.

My problem: it’s very useful until you have to use the lower zone for editing or anything else, because you can’t see, which page you’re on, or if you try to remember, to which page you’re switching to, if there’s more than two.

The both possiblities to see are the lower zone MIDI Remove view and the MIDI Remote Manager, which can be opened in an extra window and set to always on top. But: it has a lot of overhead and uses a lot of space.

So if we could either have one tiny indicator somewhere in one of the status bars, showing which page we’re on - please correct me if there already is something like that, I would appreciate very much.

Or maybe a window with only the remote’s surface and everything else hidden. It would improve the mapping pages feature a lot, I think.

You could place it somewhere on your desktop to always see your current mapping.

Cheers

Great idea!!!
I hope the MIDI remote feature continue its developmet and integration in to the GUI.

I hope so too, it’s so much more convenient now.

Maybe I am missing something but I like this little floating window, it reflects the “page” as well (although this setting for OPZ doesn’t have 2nd page.).

I think many are not aware that everything that is in the lower zone can be opened in an independent window with similar functionality.

Hi,

It’s not similar functionality. It’s exactly the same functionality. Same as you can open any Editor in the Lower Zone or in the New Window.

Hi Martin,
you are a real guru for cubase and so I HAVE to ask you:;o)

What I said is that “everything in the lower zone can be opened in an independent window with similar functionality” - because I think the functionality of the lower zone mixer for example is NOT completely the same as in all the other mixer windows… - so: am I missing something?

Hi @Elien,

OK, you are right, we are playing the “wording-game” now, sorry.

You are right, the MixConsole is a bit limited, comparison to the MixConsole window. The reason is simple, there is not so much space in the Lower Zone, you get in the window. So in fact, it’s the other way around: in the Lower Zone, you get “similar functionality” (I would rather say: almost all functionality)…

There is only one more feature in the Lower Zone’s Editors, comparison to the window Editors: Link Project and Lower Zone Editor Cursor. This feature doesn’t make sense in the Editor window, therefore it has not been implemented. On the other hand, there are Global Tracks in the Key Editor window, for example.

Hi Martin, thank you… I was trying to learn! :slight_smile:
And what I wrote was not a complaint. I love it that we have as well the lower zone as the separate windows. This is so great for multiple monitors.

Sorry, I didn’t mention this specifically. But those extra windows from lower zone sections can’t be made always on top. Neither the cubase internal always on top option exists neither do external tools that set the windows system property work. At least on windows 10.
