Chapter 13.  Working with Automation  >  Using a Remote Control Mixer

Using a Remote Control Mixer

It is possible to use a MIDI remote control device to record and edit automation inside a Cubase project. Recording automation using such a device is no different than using the controls inside the Mixer window in Cubase. However, editing recorded automation events is a little different. If your remote control MIDI device does not have touch sensitive controls, Cubase does not have any way of knowing if a control is sending information or not once you moved it. As a result, when you activate the Write Automation button in the Mixer window and move a control on your MIDI controller, all following automation is replaced until the moment you stopped playback or disabled the Write Automation button once again. To avoid recording over automation by mistake, you should only enable the Write Automation button on the channels you want to overwrite automation, or avoid moving controllers associated with automation that you want to keep.

To use a controller device with Cubase, you have to install it in the Device Setup panel.
