sending track names to MIDI out

I’ve just finished writing an app for controlling a DAW. One feature I really want to implement is for the app to display the current track name and the current time. Does anyone know how to get Cubase to send the current track name and time code out through a MIDI port?

Can this be done by creating a Mackie Control device and setting the MIDI output, but leaving the MIDI input unconnected? I assume this would send a bunch of info as MMC or sysex data.

Thanks for your help :slight_smile:


Go to Options and midi/midi filters and uncheck the filter for sysex. See if that works for you.

thanks :slight_smile:
