MMC Master Panel

  • To open the MMC Master Panel, select Studio > More Options > MMC Master Panel.

1, 2, 3, 4

Use these buttons to arm tape tracks for recording.

A1, A2, TC, VD

These buttons refer to additional tracks usually found on video tape recorders. Refer to the manual of your VTR device to see if these tracks are supported.


Activate this to use the transport buttons to control the transport of the device.


In the Preferences dialog, select MIDI > MIDI Filter, and make sure SysEx is activated in the Thru section.

This is necessary because MMC uses 2-way communication where the tape recorder replies to the MMC messages it receives from Cubase. By filtering out SysEx Thru, you ensure that these MMC system exclusive replies are not echoed back to the tape recorder.
