I was wondering if there is a way to have an audio track’s volume automation written via cc7. I have a bunch of drumloops and would like to just select the channel and record the midi cc data and have it control the volume.
Basically I have 4 faders on my controller keyboard set up to control 4 midi parameters (cc7, cc11, Breath and Pan) and when I record midi tracks all works perfectly, I’m just not sure how to have them be able to control the audio tracks.
You can do this by using Generic Remote Device. Open your Device Setup (Device menu), and sleect Generic remote. Choose MIDI Inputs of your MIDI controller. Upper sheet is sources, lower sheet is functions.
You can use Learn check box for quicker assign. Or set Controller 7 on MIDI channel 1 as source in upper sheet. And Make assigne VST Mixer ::: <Audio 01> ::: Volume in lower sheet. The <Audio 01> is your audio track, you want to use. Or you don’t need to specify exactly track, and you can use “Selected” (like selected track).
So, it is possible in the Cubase. And it is quite easy.
Ok, so I’ve gotten it so that the fader controls the automation on the audio tracks, but its wonky on the midi tracks now. It affects the “midi volume” in the track inspector as well as recording cc7 data onto the track. I was told previously that these two were different and unrelated volume parameters.
