In previous versions, you could only use the fader strip of a CMC control on channels. It wouldn’t control group faders. HUI control had the same behavior (I read somewhere that the CMCs used an altered version of the HUI protocol, so if that’s true the similarities would be understandable).
In 8, is it now possible to control VCA group faders via CMC / HUI, or do they still work on channels only?
I have 2 CMC Fader Control, 1 Channel Control, one Transporte Control, one Quick Control, and i really would like to have them controlling other channels than only only the audio/midi “normal” channels.
SB, this coulb be a really good thing to all owners of the CMC packs…
Now all CMC controllers work with all kind of channels. Input channels, audio channels, MIDI channels, Group, FX, and Master. I tried that and now i’m working with all CMC controlling all that i want. A really great feature.
I just tested Cubase 8 with VCA faders and it works great.
I’m now wondering if my “skips over VCA faders in Cubase 7.5” was user error (me).
The VCA fader being “visible within” the current CMC bank in the Mix Console, but in a different position in the Arrange Window and therefore not in the correct location to be controlled (unless the CMC bank is shifted to meet up with it).
I’ll test to confirm in 7.5 when I get a chance.
Either way, great news, for certain in Cubase 8. Thanks for sharing this, Agilkds.
