This may be a request for 2 control types, but I wanted to make sure I wasn’t missing something…
Is there a way to map a knob to be a Jog/Shuttle dial? This would really be helpful of a lot of controllers that don’t work as well as they should with MC (looking at you, X-Touch One). It would also be nice to be able to map that to one of the Monogram Orbiters.
And with that, I come to the request - can you implement a “joystick” control in MIDI Remote at some point? Or at least an easy way to work around for it, which would require multiple mappings to the same control. If I am missing something there, please speak up.
Thanks! Loving Cubase 12 so far!
A joystick control (or touchpad) is really just a hardware control capable of sending 2 different MIDI CC messages at the same time. You can totally program that in the current Midi Remote by pretending it’s two different knobs or sliders.
I believe those are implemented as two different key commands in Cubase, and if you have a controller that can send 2 different MIDI Note messages depending if you turn the dial left or right, then it can be done today. (Many Native Instruments controllers - that feature an endless knob with little clicks when turning as well as their DJ controllers with a fake turntable or two).
But it definitely would be nice to also be able to do this via relative MIDI CC messages, which has also been requested as a feature to be added in other threads.
