I am so close to getting this to work, and I WILL CONQUER WITHOUT THEIR HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have a Yamaha KX88.. MOTU MidiTimepiece AV, Cubase VST and the E4X sampler.. Here's the deal. I want to be able to assign a parameter (in this case % of FX A send) to a Continuous Midi Controller (i.e slider or wheel).. So I can dial in more Reverb if I want it while I'm playing.. Or any other parameter for that matter.. Well, the SysEx implementation manual is No Light Reading.. But combinded with that I have used SoundDiver to help me solve this problem..
See, the E4 doesn't send SysEx via Midi Out when you change parameters. Yamaha gear does, so it's nice & easy to monitor the SysEx and figure out what to assign.. So I monitored the Midi Out of SoundDiver when I changed the parameters in the E4.. And voila! There was my Midi Code that I was looking for.. So I assign this to a Midi Mixer Object in Cubase (ie. It's like a "virtual" slider) and by using the mouse, I can move the slider in Cubase and the E4 responds.. (Had a bit of a problem with the SysEx code, E4 uses TWO variable fields when everything else only lets you program SysEx with ONE variable field...whatever) But now, there's a remote control feature in Cubase that lets control the little "virtual" slider (I spent a week creating) via an external Midi Controller...COOL!!! Problem solved, right?...Wrong! When I move my modulation wheel, the "virtual" slider in Cubase moves up and down with it, BUT it's not sending any MIDI DATA to the E4. If I use the mouse to move the slider, everything works fine.. Well, what am I doing wrong.....??????? Isn't the "remote control feature" in Cubase supposed to work realtime?
Thanks in advance for anyone taking the time to read all this and post a reply!!
