Set tempo with Generic Remote

As far as I can find it’s still not possible to set tempo through Generic Remote. It was there in Cubase 6 according to this post: http://www.steinberg.net/forums/viewtopic.php?p=214116

Questions:
Has anyone found a solution/workaround for this? Tap tempo would be quite alright for me.
Should I report this as a bug?

So no-one has an idea?

But here is a solution I’ve just set up:

  1. Set up a tempo track with tempo gradually rising over a number of bars.
  2. Move song pointer to the place in the song that has the tempo you want. This can be done by clicking in the track, allocating ffw/rew buttons, an encoder for shuffle etc.

Now all the tempo synced delays, pads and effects can always be in tempo. Nice.

How’s that for creativity!
