The assignment is as fast as it gets: choose a parameter within Cubase, push the f/Q Learn button and turn the desired encoder — that’s it. Plus, the versatile MIDI mode turns the CMC QC into a freely configurable MIDI controller to provide addtitional creative headroom.
Best of all, by using the included CMC-QC Editor software you can conveniently edit the MIDI control change parameters via a slick graphical interface. Parameter values are displayed underneath the respective encoders and can be entered manually.
So, whether you are looking for a smart add-on controller for your master keyboard, a versatile live performance tool or a time-saving studio companion, the CMC-QC is always the right choice.
