I want to describe the specific scenario I’m going through in Cubase Pro 9:
I’m pretty new to Cubase.
I want to play multiple keyboards along with the Maschine MKII live with modulation and expression automation: pitch bend, LFO changes, delay wetness, and so forth. That live performance is recorded in the DAW. I use faders, pedals, and knobs to automate as I play.
So I’ll describe one simple scenario. My Maschine MKII is set to MIDI controller mode, and it is recorded on a MIDI track. The MIDI track is then routed to a VST instrument track. The MIDI CC’s are being recorded on the instrument track (for example: pitch bend is mapped to CC 67), and MIDI learn is set to the pitch parameter. I can hear the modulation as I play it live, but when I play back the recording, the midi-learned parameter is not recorded. That parameter doesn’t even budge. It seems to not record when the automation is set to W (write), and it doesn’t record when the track is set to armed recording. However, MIDI CC 67 automation was recorded. So, okay, CC is recorded but not the parameter. I don’t want to copy and paste the CC automation to the parameter all the time. It’s just not efficient.
How do I make the parameter automation record? How would you set it up?
