Using an xbox controller to activate midi

Hi I’m definitely a beginner in understanding the complexities of music software.

I have Cubase elements and am wanting to use my xbox controller to activate different sounds, sort of like a midi controller. Is this possible?

As far as I know there are no drivers which let the xbox controller send midi signals/commands, so the answer is NO untill proven otherwise.

It’s possible though not as simple as plug n play you’d get with a proper midi controller.

Brilliant, that’s what this forum is when it’s on it’s best :slight_smile:

This must mean you can turn things the other way round and use Cubase to play video games then?

Another vital feature :smiley:

Doesn’t one of the schwa/stillwell plugins have a defender type game you have to play for a few seconds whilst you’re running it on demo mode? I seem to remember I spent a little too long playing that. :smiley:

The article uses MIDI Yoke. I had to stop using that when I moved to 64-bit as it was only 32-bit - they may have upgrade to 64 since. I switched to LoopBe at the time, but if you google “virtual MIDI” there are a fair amount of similar tools available.
