Controlling ableton via cubase using rewire
Perhaps you can help me with this: I am running Cubase 6 with Ableton 7 as slave using Rewire. All well and good. Within Ableton I have a synth and effects chain with the wet/dry control mapped to a macro controller using the instrument rack. Whilst Ableton is happy to receive midi note information and Cubase receive the audio from Ableton flawlessly I am trying to achieve one further objective with no positive outcome thus far.
The macro controller in Ableton is assigned to the wet/dry levels of the effects chain I have set up. I am trying to figure a way of automating this macro control within Cubase. Obviously you could write the automation within Ableton itself however, I would rather keep everything in the Cubase project view.
I have tried the following within Cubase: Creating a midi track with the output assigned to the Ableton synth with the required automation written in. I have, for all sensible reason I can think of, matched the midi channel and cc controller numbers to match the macro controller in Ableton. Although I have a sneaking feeling this makes no difference. In essence, I want Cubase to control a macro in Ableton albeit using an automated midi track. Is this possible? If not..can you think of an alternative solution that may achieve the same outcome? I hope this makes sense and if I can clarify any further I would be happy to try. Thanks. Matt
