I have an external MIDI keyboard that has a ‘Local Control’ setting (a stetting I would image is present on almost all MIDI keyboards). Whenever I’m using Cubase I must change this setting to OFF to eliminate redundant MIDI messages when I’m playing/recording in Cubase. Unfortunately, this setting is buried deep in the menu system. Fortunately, I know the specific SysEx command to turn this setting ON or OFF. Now I’m trying to find the best way to automate sending the SysEx command to the appropriate device at the appropriate time.
I’d like to automate sending the SysEx command to turn the setting OFF when either starting Cubase or opening a project. I’d also like to automate sending the SysEx command to turn the setting ON when either closing a project or shutting down Cubase. Is there a way to accomplish these two (2) objectives?
