I can go into the transport control dialog box and check the activate box for the controls but it doesn't stay set!
The MIDI control faders all work fine but the transport controls using MMC does not. It won't stay set in the Cubase transport control dialog box.
In the manual it says (Cubase only).
So I'm concluding his version is keeping the ZEDR16 from working!
Anyone else run into this quirk?
Does this really mean Cubase Studio 4 version doesn't permit setting up MMC transport control functionality and if that is true why would a feature like that be disabled in a second tier version??? WTF?!
Only the MMC control protocol is disabled not the CC MIDIl!!
I don't see how that can be such an important feature to only be allowed in the full version, but maybe there's a reason. Seems pretty weird.
Maybe someone knows a workaround...or I missed something...I don't know. My friend was a little miffed and confused as was I.
It was a disappointing quirk after everything else worked flawlessly and he was loving it! When I got the fader's running he was speechless and then bam!...I could not for the life of me figure out why it wouldn't take the transport control settings....just didn't make any sense....typical upgrade issues I guess when you buy lower tier software versions!....but very frustrating and a bit annoying!
I recommended he upgrade his Studio 4 to Cubase 6 full version for $199 but man it's a hard sell just to get that feature to work....even though I know he would love using C6?
I've always personally bought full versions of software in order to avoid this sort of thing and my ZEDR16/C6 setup works perfect and is absolutely fantastic....but I would sure like to help him make the best decision here....he loves everything else about the ZED and wouldn't you know it the last feature to get up and running after such earlier success today was this!
This is worth a shot,my zed's default midi "ch16" settings dropped out once after i updated a driver,your friend's could have been shipped that way..
I had the same prob. faders,yes/transport,no.
Hold down play and power up the board.
Then hold down 1,3,5,7 and push play again while holding those down.
Then release the play,then the 1,3,5,7 buttons and restart the board.
Its on the last page of the manual.That brought mine back.
P.s. before i upgraded nuendo, i had the transport functions operating using the generic remote function.
I was using the 3 arrow buttons and the plus button for play/stop/rec/rew.
If all else fails,he could always do that,i could tell you how to set that up.
Hopefully the reset will work.
