Is it possible to control transport with midi (stop, start, goto etc). I use cubase and would like to be able to go direct to a location point when a midi key is pressed and go to another when another is pressed. Does anyone know if this is possible? I think it would be very useful for both composing and live. Any ideas?

thanks
steve

Er.... What do you mean by 'transport'? Are you talking about a car? Or a tape recorder?

Any device receiving midi data must have something to receive and interpret the midi instructions, which are nothing more than a sequence of numbers. Does the whatever you're thinking of have such facilities?

Aha, that makes sense now. I've never used Cubase - I suppose this is connected with the idea that Cubase is sort of simulating a tape recorder?

To answer my questions, Cubase will certainly be able to receive and respond to midi instructions, as regards music. I take it that you would like midi codes to replace, or maybe cause, computer keystrokes or mouse actions. Reasonable enough. I would have thought that such a facility, if possible, would be detailed in the manual for Cubase?

When you refer to 'pressing a key' are you talking about a key on your computer, or a key on your music keyboard? If the latter, how would the system know that the key pressed was not a note, but was to action something within Cubase?
