Oh you can just remap a button on your C4 by using MTP, (One that you don't need) and then you get those buttons on your C4 - once you're in each mode the V Pots control everything after that point.u-man wrote: ↑Tue May 26, 2020 4:09 pmThis reminds me also on that thing, that if you turn on a real MCU and press the select buttons 1+2, that there also modes (on the device) that are selectable. Do i need that too? Because if i need that, how would i make that possible, once i return the MCU to my friend again
Good point, perhaps the SysEx never gets sent as Cubase never receives the message it's expecting at the start, whereas my MCU 'is' sending that acknowledgement back.I really do not know, why the hell i am not seeing any other sysex messages from the protocol
The only big difference i see is, you have a unit that is supposed to work with the MCU protocol and i try to fool that protocol.
I've not studied the Cubase to MCU communication in any depth. As I've only been using Cubase since last year, previous to that i was a Mac/Logic user. But if the Steinberg extension was created with the approval/help of Mackie then you can guarantee that a SysEx reply is part of the protocol as per Mackie standards to protect their IP. So i'm 90% sure you're on the right path here.
I've not looked or used MTP recently, but i imagine it would be a find and replace style filter whereby you would run a replace on a "F0 00 00 66 10 12" match and replace with "F0 00 00 66 17 30" (for example). But i was under the impression that MTP had far greater control than that, and you could replace based on position in the string using substitute style variables.So what looks easy here:
F0 00 00 66 10 12 xx xx xx xx xx xx F7
F0 00 00 66 17 30 xx xx xx xx xx xx F7
Will be by far not easy with MTP or I (and Bome support) are thinking fundamentely wrong here.
There is no option for "Change only the bold numbers."
It's very hard for me to give you exact answers here as i neither have MTP or a C4, and time is at a premium too i'm afraid. But i will try and look myself to see what i can find out further.
The first hurdle is of course to get Cubase to send out MCU SysEx without an MCU connected. I wouldn't concentrate on too much beyond that at this stage.
