Hi all,

I have an external midi controller, M-Audio workstation 88 keys, it does have piano keys and knobs and sliders.

if i open a cubase session and add Vienna Instrument from the rack, i can control VI instance from my midi controller, and that means playing the sound and adjusting all sliders and knobs 

if i use VE server pro and create an instance and connect from my cubase, add instrument track etc...

i can play that patch on my midi controller keys, BUT i can't use the knobs and sliders anymore.

Does anyone know what do i need to do to set that up?

Also when i think about this.. as you know when you want to hear the sound you have to bring Cubase project to the front, but then when you want set the sliders in VI (adanced tab), you have to bring VE pro to the front and you can't adjust and hear the difference same time, it seems to me it is not the best way to deal with this.

and if you ask me how do i use this now, it looks like you need to know exactly all your sliders (0-127) and where they suppose to be and then run the sound.

am i missing something?

Thanks

-John

You have to know what CC the knobs send and assign them to the channel in VE Pro.

Once assigned, you don't need to have VE Pro in focus for these to work.

 

"as you know when you want to hear the sound you have to bring Cubase project to the front, but then when you want set the sliders in VI (adanced tab), you have to bring VE pro to the front and you can't adjust and hear the difference same time,"

No. You should hear the sound with VE Pro in focus. Right now what's in focus here is a different instance, #2, than what I have in Key Editor solo edit, communicating with a channel in #4 and it sounds. Something is wrong if this is not true.

Are you saying i should hear the patch sound and VEpro in focus too BUT the Instance/Channel/Port in VEpro in focus "should" be the same as in Cubase if i'm playing that patch?

In other words if i solo some patch in Cubase and it doesn't match what is highlighted in VEpro while the latter is in focus, then i don't hear a sound, correct?

No, you should hear it regardless.

"solo edit" in Key Editor, meaning the part you are looking at is edited in isolation (with that deselected all parts opened in it are editable).

I described that I had VE Pro '4', (Port 3, channel 2) in the Key Editor, playing notes to that part and even as I was focused on VE Pro '2' I hear it.

 

But by the same token, if you have a part soloed, it's soloed, your focus "to the front" should not change that.

when you want to hear the sound you have to bring Cubase project to the front; no, you should hear it with any VE Pro 'to the front' or in focus. You should hear it with the VI patch in focus assigning control. Something isn't communicating.

Everything MIDI that is setup in Cubase to communicate to VE Pro should communicate, with either in focus, per se.
