This is a simple device designed to be a shortcut for common action in Cubase. It can:
- control the system volume
- mute/unmute the sound
- start recording
- toggle transport cycle
- mark the current selected track as solo
How it works
Using the v-usb library, it emulates a keyboard and a multimedia device. The rotary encoder controls the volume and it can mute the sound when the encoder's switch is pressed. Also it has 6 aditional slots for buttons that can be linked to a specific shortcut used by Cubase. By default it can play/stop, start recording, Toggle transport cycle and mark the selected track as solo.
