It is possible to set a Quick Control to: "SurroundPanner V5 -> Rotate Signal". Which is great but there is a bug in the Quick Controls. If you want to make a big template (which I am doing) than you most-likely want to disable your Instrument Tracks. This is a very big performance gain. It saves tons of memory and really speeds-up the loading time. But, if you enable a disabled Intrument Track the Quick Controls of that track keep the labels as before you disabled it, but the values are now linked to the original VST Quick Controls. This hidden feature (or bug) is doing this to my face:
or sometimes even this:
So i thought to circumvent this feature/bug by setting the Generic Remote that I'm using directly to Rotate Signal. Instead of Quick Control slots. Unfortunally this does not exist: The only options for Surround Panning that can be selected are:
- LFE Level
- Signal Width
- Rotate Signal
- Divergence/Center Distribution
- Divergence/Front Focus
- Divergence/Rear Focus
- Divergence/Side Focus
- Speaker/X Channel off/on (X for all channels)
Does anyone have a suggestion on surround panning mapped on midi controllers within Cubase 8.5.x
And if using Quick Controls is really the only viable option, then does someone have any suggestion on how to best work with Instrument Tracks on big templates. If i'm not disabling them then the memory usage and overal performance is bad. If I use track presets than values for Sends, Quick Controls and Routing are reset to default (is this a bug or a feature, i myself cant tell).
I really like Cubase but the're a lot of bugs/inconsistencies that need some love.
(EDIT: Typo: Remote Signal -> Rotate Signal)
