Cubase - DAW Command Center problem
« on: October 09, 2019, 04:22:09 pm »
I have set up my Keylab Essential 61 keyboard and Analog Lab 4 in Cubase Artist 9. It is mostly working fine. I can access the full set of sounds and record them in Cubase.
The problem is in trying to use the Keylab DAW Command Center buttons while working in Cubase.
Any help much appreciated!

1. Some of the Transport buttons on the Keylab work but some don't. Pressing the Play button does trigger play in Cubase but the pause functionality does not work. The forward/back buttons, Record, Stop, Save and the Undo buttons work but the Metro button does not.
2. At the same time, the keyboard is generating midi signals even when i am not touching anything. I can see MIDI input activity in Cubase and in the Analog 4 interface (a little orange dot flashing top left). At the moment I have the Berliner preset loaded and the keyboard screen is alternating between the "Clear: All sounds" and "P1 Gain Mixer3: 1.00". It is not possible to browse through sounds on the keyboard because of this. I have to select sounds through the Analog Lab VST.

What I have done so far:
In the Midi Controller Center>Device Settings>DAW Mode I have selected HUI
In Cubase>Devices>Device Setup I have added "Mackie HUI" as a device (it shows up under Remote Devices)
Then in the Mackie HUI section, I have selected MIDIIN (Arturia Keylab Essential) for the MIDI Input, and the equivalent for the MIDI Output. (Please note that I have two options which mention Keylab in the dropdown - see screenshot. I tried the other ones but the transport panel would not work at all with those).

My set up:
Keylab Essential 61
Analog Lab 4
Cubase Artist 9.0
Windows 10

Many thanks!
