Using MIDI devices

The MIDI Device Manager allows you to specify and set up your MIDI devices, making global control and patch selection easy.

But the MIDI Device Manager also features powerful editing functions that can be used to create MIDI device panels (Cubase Pro only). MIDI device panels are internal representations of external MIDI hardware, complete with graphics. The MIDI device panel editor provides all the tools you need to create device maps where every parameter of an external device (and even an internal device like a VST instrument) can be controlled and automated from inside Cubase.

For additional information on how to create panels for VST instruments, see the separate document “MIDI Devices”.
