ATOM SQ’s song menu and transport controls can be used to control select features within Cubase. This is done by setting up ATOM SQ as a Mackie Control Universal within Cubase’s Studio Setup menu. To do this, follow the steps below:
- Ensure that ATOM SQ is connected to your computer via the USB cable
- Open Cubase
- Click Studio in Cubase’s task bar at the top
- Click Studio Setup
- Click the Plus button at the top left of the Studio Setup window
- Select Mackie Control from the drop down menu
- Set the MIDI Input and Output to “MIDIIN 2 (ATM SQ)”
- Do not use the ATM SQ MIDI port
- Click on MIDI Port Setup in the left hand menu
- Uncheck the check box on the MIDIIN2 (ATM SQ) row that says In ‘All MIDI In’
- If this step is not done, then the transport buttons and others will unintentionally trigger virtual instruments.
- Click OK
- ATOM SQ is now mimicking the commands sent by an MCU device.
- Transport and Song Menu commands should now control Cubase.
- There are some limitations of which commands work due to how Cubase interprets these commands and the DAWs embedded functionality. These include Undo, Save and Metronome.
- Press the Setup button on BEEP’s hardware
- Press the Page Right button underneath the main encoder
- Press the button under MCU Mode
- Press the button above Yes when prompted “Switch to MCU Mode?”
