Problem setting up Stereo Out fader

I’m using Cubase 11 in Windows 10 and an M-Audio Keystation Pro 88.

I just learned how to set up the faders & knobs in Cubase 11 so I’d like to use the faders/knobs/buttons on the Pro 88.
I set up the transport buttons & they work fine.

I wanted to have a fader for Stereo In and one set for Stereo Out in the mixer.

Studio > Studio Setup > Generic Controller

Midi In = Keystation Pro 88
Midi Out = Keystation Pro 88 but I’ve also tried ‘Not Connected’

Top half of the interface I renamed a fader to Stereo Out
Checked the Learn box and moved the fader.

The address of the fader changed so I unchecked Learn
In the lower section, I set the Stereo Out fader to
Device = Mixer
Channel Category = Stereo Out
Value/Action = Volume
Everything worked.

I went through these same steps to set up a Stereo In fader. Then I set up a knob to pan the selected track.

The problem is – when I close the project and re-open, everything works fine except for the Stereo Out fader. That fader now adjusts volume on a random track. The Stereo In fader and the knob assigned to pan remain as they should but when I go into Studio > Studio Setup > Generic Controller the Stereo Out fader is assigned to this random track in the lower half of the interface.
The Stereo Out fader does this with every project I open.

I thought it might be an issue with that fader so I tried 2 other faders and one of the knobs with the same result. I also tried setting up the Stereo Out fader with an empty project. As long as I work in that project, it functions as it should. When I close it and open another project (or that same project) it changes the Stereo Out.

Thanks for your help.

There’s a quirk in setting up the Generic Remote (OK maybe more than one) that I think burns everyone at least once - and some of us more than that.

When you make changes in a Generic Remote those changes will only stay in effect until you close Cubase unless you Export the setup. I think it would better be named Save but I don’t get to pick. It’s fine to write over a previously Exported file, but you got to do the Export.

Thanks for your help. This worked!

Also be careful

  1. Make sure you are exporting and not importing.
  2. The delete at the top is for a single setting. The one at the bottom is ALL settings!!! (on a page)

Thank you for the advice, though I will admit I discovered both of these the hard way. The only saving grace is that I planned everything out and mapped it in Excel so I had notes to recover from.

But it still took a long time to get everything back to where I had it before I snarfed it all.
