Apple Remote (Macintosh only)

Many Apple computers come with an Apple Remote Control, a small hand-held device akin to TV remote controls. It allows you to remotely control certain features in Cubase.


  1. Open the Device Setup dialog and select Apple Remote Control from the Add Device pop-up menu.
  2. In the list on the right, the Apple Remote’s buttons are listed. For each button you can open a pop-up menu from which you can select a Cubase parameter.

    The parameter you select is assigned to the corresponding button on the Apple Remote.

    By default, the Apple Remote always controls the application that has the focus on your Macintosh computer (provided that this application supports the Apple Remote).


    When the “Disable when application is not in front” option is not selected, the Apple Remote will control Cubase even if it does not have the focus.
