I have a simple 8 fader MIDI Controller. All there is is eight faders and a button to assist in assigning CCs - that’s it.
It was set up in Mackie, but after latest update this device routing at first dissappeared but still worked, then today it failed for reasons unkown.
I decided to try to use the new MIDI remote manager. ALL I want to do with these faders is two simple things:
1] Whenthe physical device has an assigned MIDI CC (such as CC7) for Cubase to recognise this.
2] To load up a VST and then, if I require, right click on a VST’s knob and assign it to a fader.
You think that such a common task, used every day by composers, is SIMPLE in the new “Easy” method. Well having just spent five hours trying to do this. I disagree.
In the new editor it is possibly IMPOSSIBLE, at the very least it is totally obscure and not described in the manual.
I can draw in the faders, I can get it so that when I move a fader in the real world, the MIDI Remote editor moves, but in a track in the sequencer, nothing happens, with all the VSTs I have tried, when I try to assign using the above two methods.
There is no help I can find for MIDI CC Control via hardwire devices. The help in the operational manual does not seem to be designed for this.
I may be missing something but I find the whole new MIDI remote “easy method” to be obscure and even downright misleading. It’s often very confusing about which of the screens you should be in to do what. Doing things like deleting a remote map, or editing a fader, cannot be accomplished where, intuitively one might think it could.
You are claiming that things are much easier now, but they are not. Compare it to Mackie (which you are threatening to delete from Studio Setup.
Using a Mackie device, there is one screen and merely by selecting the inputs there I have managed to get things working again as a Mackie device.
5 hours his morning with your new flagship product achieved failure.
Please Steinberg, either explain where I have gone wrong, or address this important issue
