Chapter 6. Entering MIDI Manually > Viewing Continuous Controller Data

Viewing Continuous Controller Data

Continuous controller (CC) data can be used for an enormous range of tasks with MIDI devices. It can be used to send modulation to synthesizers, change settings on effects devices, and add expression to performances after the fact. There is no room to cover all of that in this chapter—you will learn much more about CC data in Chapter 10, “Editing MIDI”—but basic CC skills are useful when creating a MIDI part in Cubase, and that's what we'll focus on here.

There are 127 possible CC messages. Many are known only by number (CC 59), but some are standardized and are generally referred to by name: for example, Velocity, Pan, Modulation, Main Volume, and Pitchbend. Pretty much every MIDI synth made should respond to these standardized controllers, and the Key editor lets you make changes to any CC data you wish. By default, the Key editor shows only one CC at a time, so you need to choose which one to view.
