Controlling Cubase transport play stop with one button...
by Unrealize on 2012-05-21 13:50:09

Is this possible?

I want to have one button toggle cubase's start stop buttons via generic remote.

I am able to do it using two buttons, but, I am thinking that it has to be possible to do it via some sort of toggle function, but I haven't been able to find out how.

Been searching around a lot on google to try to find out, but to no avail.

Anyone who knows about this and could enlighten me??

Cheers!

I suspect someone will be able to provide you with a better answer but .,...

If you have an HD500 then it can send MIDI commands.  Cubase can be controlled using MIDI Commands and you should be able to program a footswitch on the HD500 for 'start/stop' of cubase.  The headache though is that you would need to setup the footswitch(es) in each patch that you use.  You may be better off getting hold of a midi foot controller of some kind.

Also, check out the HD500 Advanced Guide (downloadable from Support - Product Manuals above) for Midi setup information.

Thanks for the input.

Yeah, I'm using midi to control cubase, and so far I can make it start and stop with two different buttons, that's no problem, but to actually toggle it, no luck so far.

+1 to Jim,

I can honestly say it's possible but I don't know how you would implement it. Then again, I'm definitely no Cubase expert. I would consult appendix B in the HD500 advanced guide and contact Steinberg. They would know far more about this sort of MIDI implentation in Cubase:
