Xbox 360 Controller Wireless

Postby Zontag » Mon Apr 15, 2013 2:37 am


I'm trying controlling Cubase Artist 7 with a Xbox gamepad controller. When I start Cubase with controller connected it appears in Devices Setup but I just can change pan track pressing 'A' buttom and moving left joy.

What can I do to able full controller?

I've also been looking into this. The only solution I have found is a slightly Heath Robinson solution using some software called "GlovePIE" which allows you to map keyboard controls (and probably Midi but I haven't worked out how to get Cubase to recognize the controller as a midi device) to the XBox controller.

Only word of warning is that GlovePie's installer has some irritating browser add-ons you have to remove.

I can now play, pause, record, delete, undo, zoom in and out, rewind and fast forward using my controller.

My script (which you can copy and paste into a GlovePie window is as follows:

// GlovePIE Xbox 360 Controller -> Cubase
// By Richard Kirke

//Play or pause
Key.Spacebar = XInput.A
Key.Y = XInput.Y
Key.NumPadDot = XInput.LeftTrigger
Key.Numpadminus and key.Ctrl = XInput.LeftShoulder
key.Numpadminus = XInput.Left
Key.Numpadplus and key.Ctrl = XInput.RightShoulder
key.Numpadplus = XInput.Right
Key.H = XInput.Up
Key.G = XInput.Down
Key.Delete = XInput.X
Key.z and Key.Ctrl = XInput.B

Only thing you have to do is to map 'y' as a key to record as well as * as I can't work out how to output an asterisk with GlovePIE

Hope that helps

Grace and peace
