GR all the way !
Got two BCR2000s plus various small fry, all "hardwired" to perform a single function per control, so the BCR controls are named with Letra strips - intuitive like hardware after a while.
All full duplex, of course.
One is set up to exclusively control the X-EQ for example, the right hand buttons all do various Cubase functions.
The top row of the 2nd BCR does QCs, the remaining controls are mapped to several channel strips and character EQs, chosen via mouseover in that tiny GR window. Still, HMF is HMF and LoQ is LoQ for all these devices alike, so the hands-on generic lettering works fine.
Unfortunately all this GR stuff requires correct window focus behaviour (as it's based on keycommands), so 7.x still is no-go for these cool applications - this should be the main priority for fixing, and then bring on every function Cubase offers for KCs and GR, you got my vote !
And while we're at it, please make all windows and dialogs you can open via KCs and GR "toggle" so they can be closed by the identical command, many are already, but even more follow various spontaneous coder ideas - this has to be unified, and "toggle" sure would be to every user's liking, I guess. If not, please explain ...
Oh, and finally, have a heart for GR newbies and rework the setup process to follow standard Windows (Apple) conventions and human logic, the learning curve atm is serpentine shaped and you're bound to fall off the cliffs way too easy ...
