My Yamaha n12 worked fine before together with my old Windows XP 32 bit and Cubase AI 4.
Now I have a Windows 7, 64 bit. I have installed all updates from Yamaha (n12 Firmware 1.03, IEEE1394 firmware 1.07, TOOLS for n 2.7.3), plus the Cubase AI4.5 update.
Everything works fine except the DAW Remote Control on the n12. In the Cubase menu Devices/Device Setup, clicking on the plus sign, there is no n12 listed, isnt it supported anymore? When I select the “Mackie Control” instead, I get the basic transport controls working (play, record, rewind,etc), but not the others (prev/next track, etc).
Also, the “Cubase Ready” light never comes on, which seems to say there is some general problem.
Is there a fix for this? If not, then can I configure the control messages myself? I assume they are MIDI, so maybe it is just a matter of mapping them to the right action in Cubase? There are some settings for the Mackie and also for the Generic Remote, but without any documentation from Yamaha it will take forever to figure it out.
Any help would be appreciated.
