H, I just need advice on how to setup my controllers play/stop/re record/record buttons on my new midi keys to cubase. tired midi learn etc but nothing happens.
pc windows 10 64bit, midi keyboard is a new M audio oxygen61 usb, cubase is 8.5 pro full.
the keys, pitch bend/mod and pads all work out the box, but theres play/stop record buttons that dont do anything when pressed and I would like to get them working. any advice much appreciated, cant find much on youtube or m audio’s site. thanks
Once you get to the Remote Device Setup screen and you add Generic Controller…from there it is not easy or clear. Spent hours fiddling with it and changing the parameters. A lot of guides online assume you know all the rest. Any help would be appreciated.
Modulation wheel should work straight. It just sends MIDI CC1, which is in sue by HALion Sonic by default.
What exactly should the Transport button do in HALion Sonic, please? Btw, for controlling plug-ins, you have to use something different than the Generic Remote Device. We are using the Generic Remote Device for internal Cubase functions only.
@Martin.Jirsak yes, exactly - but just around a couple of weeks ago, this midi filter preference ended up being the problem for somebody else here whom I was able to help, who had messed with those settings, forgot about it, and was subsequently mystified why some midi messages from external devices were ignored by Cubase. – So this is one possible explanation for none of the mod wheels working and thus worthwhile checking.
If the Midi Monitor is NOT showing the flow of midi messages, check if you have assigned your midi controller to one or both Quick Controls or in any of the various Mackie Control devices in the settings or found under the menu Studio > Studio Setup . – Ensure your midi controller is NOT connected to any of those.
If all of the above doesn’t help, check if your midi controller is even sending controller messages with a separate utility program like MIDI-OX
