Default MIDI Assignment

Here are the default MIDI assignments for the ControlDAW™ installed in the Music Computing StudioBLADE™ and iKeyDOCK™.

Cubase/Nuendo

Transport

To enable the ControlDAW transport to control Cubase/Nuendo you have to enable MMC.
The ControlDAW sends the following MMC commands:

  • Rewind, Fast Forward, Stop and Play.

The Record and Loop Buttons use MIDI CC.

  • Loop: CC98
  • Record: CC99


To enable MMC in Cubase/Nuendo go to Transport>Project Synchronization Setup> and set the following options:

MMCsetup.jpg

  • Select MIDI Timecode
  • Place a check mark under MIDI Machine Control Slave
    • Set MMC Input to MCLG
    • Set MMC Output to MCLG
    • Set MMC Device ID to 127

Hit "OK". The MMC functions of the transport are now enabled.

Create a Generic Remote

To enable the Record and Loop buttons to control the Cubase/Nuendo transport, go to Devices>Device Setup>Remote Devices. Add a Generic Remote from the "+" box in the upper left portion of the Device Setup window.

Set the MIDI input and output to "MCLG". Use the "ADD" button to create two new entries. In the adjacent window, scroll down. There will be two new entries, Fader 1 and Fader 2. Rename one of these to Loop and the other to Record. The set the following options for these entries.

  • Top Window
    • Loop: MIDI Status=Controller - MIDI Channel=1 - Address=98 - Max Value=127 - Flags=R,,
    • Record: MIDI Status=Controller - MIDI Channel=1 - Address=99 - Max Value=127 - Flags=R,,

Go to the bottom window and scroll down.

  • Bottom Window
    • Loop: Device=Transport - Channel/Category=Device - Value/Action=cycle - Flags=,T,
    • Record: Device=Transport - Channel/Category=Device - Value/Action=record - Flags=,T,

To save this mapping use the "Export" button to save to your drive.

Ableton Live

Since Ableton Live does not listen for MMC messages, you will have to create a new preset in GeoMIDI.

Create a GeoMIDI Preset for Live

Open GeoMIDI and select a new "preset" from the drop down.

Newpreset.jpg

Double-click on the preset name and rename it to "Ableton Live".

RenamePresst.jpg

Set the Transport buttons to the correct MIDI CC numbers.

EditButton.jpg

1. Select the Rewind button in the GeoMIDI interface.
2. Use the Inspector to set the Value to 100.
3. Set the type to "CTL". This sets the button to send MIDI CC.
4. Press "Update" to tell the Inspector to commit the changes to the button.
5. Press "Store".

Repeat these steps for the Fast Forward(Value 101), Loop(Value 102), Stop(Value 103), Play(Value 104), Record(Value 105).
Refer to the MIDI learn section of the Ableton Live manual to MIDI learn the parameters from the ControlDAW.

REAPER

Transport

REAPER does listen for MMC, and the ControlDAW sends out the following MMC commands:

  • Rewind, Fast Forward, Stop and Play.

The Record and Loop Buttons use MIDI CC.

  • Loop: CC98 - In REAPER, Loop is called Repeat.
  • Record: CC99

In REAPER, control Actions must be created before the Record and Loop buttons function.
First, open REAPER and go to Actions and select "Show action list..."

Actions.jpg

Once the Actions window is open. Type in "Toggle Repeat". This filters out everything except the Action for the repeat command.

Use learn to map the Loop button to the Toggle Repeat Action in REAPER. To do that follow the next steps:

Learnaction.jpg

1. Press the "ADD" button. This brings up the "Edit Shortcut" window.
2. To fill in the Shortcut that will control the Repeat function, press the "Loop Button" on the ControlDAW. The parameters will automatically input.
3. For MIDI CC, change the mode to "Relative 1(7F=-1, 01=+1). This makes the Loop Button behave as a toggle switch. One press on, another press off.
Press OK. This Action is now mapped.
Repeat the above steps to map the Record button to the REAPER action "Transport: Record".

Sonar 8.5 - 64bit

Transport

Since the 64bit version of Sonar 8.5 does not listen for MMC messages, you will have to create a new preset in GeoMIDI.

Create a GeoMIDI Preset for Sonar

Open GeoMIDI and select a new "preset" from the drop down.

Newpreset.jpg

Double-click on the preset name and rename it to "Ableton Live".

RenameSonar.jpg

Set the Transport buttons to the correct MIDI CC numbers.

SonareditButton.jpg

1. Select the Rewind button in the GeoMIDI interface.
2. Use the Inspector to set the Value to 100.
3. Set the type to "CTL". This sets the button to send MIDI CC.
4. Press "Update" to tell the Inspector to commit the changes to the button.
5. Press "Store".

Repeat these steps for the Fast Forward(Value 101), Loop(Value 102), Stop(Value 103), Play(Value 104), Record(Value 105).
Refer to the MIDI learn section of the Ableton Live manual to MIDI learn the parameters from the ControlDAW.

Create a Controller Surface in Sonar

To make the ControlDAW function in Sonar, a new Control Surface has to be created.
Select Options>Controllers/Surfaces...

ControlSurface.jpg

The Controllers/Surfaces window is now open. Press the "Add new Controllers/Surfaces" button.

Newcontrolsurface.jpg

Set the following settings for the Controller/Surface Settings.

SurfaceSettings.jpg

  • 1. Set Controller/Surface to "Generic Surface"
  • 2. Set the Input Port to "MCLG". This is the ControlDAW driver.
  • 3. Set the Output Port to "MCLG".

Hit "OK" to exit the window. And hit "Close" on the Connected Controllers window.
