  1. MIDI Implemtation for EUCON

    Hello I was wondering if anyone had any information on the MIDI implementation for the EUCON protocol that is now used to connect several types of control surfaces to Cubase 10, Logic 10, Nuendo and Protools 2019.5   I think these control surfaces uses Ethernet interface, which is different to the standards used by MIDIBOX but can be used alongside Mackie Control and generic control surfaces. So think of the possibilities, although in all fairness, i do not know if any one has been able to turn their hand to getting their MIDI box to control all the parameters in  all the different plug ins at the same tume. so please forgive me for my ignorance.   I would imagine that there would be little info on this protocol, as the manufacturers would likely want to keep this a closed platform http://avid.force.com/pkb/articles/compatibility/EuControl-Compatibility   However, if someone already had a EUCON compatible control surface, I can't see why someone cant' rev engineer using basic mici sniffer apps or even MATLAB Audio Toolbox? apart from the obvious legal restrictions... but hobbyists.. may bend the rules a little for personal use?  
  2. Controlling plugins in Cubase

    Hello, Now i am a born again Cubase virgin, not haven used Cubase for 20 years. Started using Cubase 10 recently and noticed that there are some really useful features that may or may not be useful to people who make MIDIbox control surfaces to control DAW's.   Firstly, i noticed that Steinberg include features to "easily" assign 8 x physical tactile control (outputting MIDI CC messages) to various features in Cubase  which include quiet a large array of plug ins parameters. This feature is called "Quick Control". This, however limits you to only 8 controllers per track and 8 controllers globally.   Where i thought this was great and very useful, I also thought that it was very limiting. As some plug ins, or should i say quite a lot of plug ins, have more than 8 x things that need to be controlled. And in fact, if you are a pro working on a mix down, it isn't uncommon for you to want to control more than just one plug in per track. Perhaps the same plug ins on each track but which still means that you need more than 8 controllers per track.   I did notice there is another feature that is used with Quick Control, that can also be used with some high-er end control surfaces, which I believe works outside the Quick Control driver / feature.   This feature is called their remote control editor, and can be used up to 8 controls with Quick Controls but outside quick controls, can be used with control surfaces that use one of the following select platforms: Yamaha NUACE Euphonix System 5 - MC Avid Artists Series WK Audio ID  This feature has the potential to unlock a large amount of parameters in Cubase, so that potentially you can design the most interesting and useful control surfaces ever. Although, i am not a programmer or MIDI box expert, so not sure how easy it would be to work out how to rev eng their protocols or drivers so that you can then use it to expand the amount of features and parameters you can control with your own control surfaces. Anyone understand how this drivers for the control surfaces that are compatible with remote control editor works?
