I know how to setup Generic Remote to control Cubase from an external device. And I know how to setup Cubase automation to control external midi devices. What I would like to know is how to create a Generic Remote to control the external midi device, which I want to do because I want to control it while playing live and I need to be able to translate midi from the incoming midi device to the external midi device (because they use different midi messages).
One specific thing I would like to do is to be able to send a midi message from my input device (either program change or CC or whatever… it can generate various) to trigger a real time ‘start’ message in the external device (but I don’t want it to start Cubase transport, so using the project synchronisation options are not possible).
Any pointers on how to do this? What I thought was obvious (creating a generic remote and selecting midi input and output as the two different devices) didn’t work, and google isn’t helping much.
