Setting up Remote Devices


  1. Select Studio > Studio Setup.
  2. Click + in the top left corner and select a remote device from the pop-up menu to add it to the Devices list.

    If your device is not available in the pop-up menu, select Generic Remote.

  3. In the Devices list, select the device.

    Depending on the selected device, either a list of programmable function commands or a blank panel is shown in the right half of the dialog window.

  4. Open the MIDI Input pop-up menu and select a MIDI input.
  5. Optional: Open the MIDI Output pop-up menu and select a MIDI output.
  6. Click OK.


You can now use the MIDI device to control Cubase functions.

A bright stripe in the Project window and in the MixConsole indicates which channels are linked to the remote-control device.

You can open a panel for the added device by selecting Studio > More Options.
