Hello Steinberg, how about making the drivers open source so a dedicated fan can implement a little bit of extra functionality?
We had this guy do some amazing things with the driver for the Frontier Design Alphatrack for Sonar, speaking of dedicated fans:

Maybe we can get him a copy of Cubase and a CC121 to inspire him to do the same here?

it's kind of neglected product now.
they officially support it cuz its the only controller steinberg have now on shelf, but they won't give any new better functionality to it.
my guess its also yamaha conducting this,and they won't put any effort

Yes, very disappointed in the Yamaha/ Steinberg merger. (Major understatement really!) I really had hopes that Yamaha would have taken the hardware reins and run with it. But if anything it is worse than when Steinberg made their own hardware or collaborated with RME. Build quality has always been good but the support has sucked. No other way to put it.

Well the CC121 works well under Windows 10. But yes i do not think the support is there. And yes when you order a BOX CC121 NEW now, you get documents from like 2008 and a version of cubase the is virtually extinct. So to me it looks like an unsupported product, where on this forum no moderator will respond.

It is the same problem with all remote controllers. The interfaces/api's is closed and there is joke for generic midi remotes. It might have been cool in the 80's. CC121 is using midi and if there was some open interfaces the community would do a integration of this and many other gadgets. However yamaha is the owner of Steinberg so I think they see the controllers as their business. Buy a Nuage or talk to the hand.

After a long long time without update for the CC121 (altough many here want it) ---- any clues if there will ever be an update for the controller? Its bascially an option to flip the Q and the G knob so that they finally (after years) match the software. And how about that requested more analog (or evern custom) scaleing feel of the frequency knob.

If i was a programmer i would really do it on my own. i actually already asked around. the Q and G knob flip is prolly a 5 minute programming job. i can't understand why Steinberg does not care about the CC121 users.

.... btw: i have NEVER really used the EQ sections since they are so ... ehm.. un-analog to use. and the Q and G flip is just a nightmare!
the ability to lock it to a track while going back into the arrange window to play around with a softsynth would be fundamental to improving the actual, day-to-day usability of this thing! I've had it for about 9 months now, and I'm finding I hardly ever use the damn thing... this could be easily rectified! My favorite button, and the only one I tend to use all that often, is the instrument GUI open/close (the panel-looking) button.

Allow us to make some sensible customizations to this. PLEASE!! Do the right thing, don't let us down! Yamaha? Hello? SOMEBODY?! Please respond!!

I just bought one from ebay, little bit dissapopinted to see support for this is almost non existent! Guess I'll found out how useful it is when it arrives but buyers remorse is already setting in. Feel free Steinberg to get a new update out for this....

Why buyers remorse? We've been using them here for years, not had a single problem with them. Running without issue on Win 10 x64 (1903) and Latest Mac OS.

Well, it's a touch off putting when you see how old the last software release for this is. But I've watched a few vids today, and from what I can tell it's going to do pretty much everything I need it to, so I'm a little less remorseful lol. I'm actually looking forward to changing up the very mouse centric way I've been working for the last few years, hopefully I can learn to use it well.

The hardware is really great and the integration into Cubase is good. The functionality may be a bit underwhelming compared to the extended feature set you get with other DAWs but the CC121 will still improve your workflow a lot.

What I find a bit worrying is that the CC121 needs a proprietary driver under MacOS and Windows (under Linux it's plug and play, including some Android devices). I don't think that Steinberg (or Yamaha) will update the software for such an old device when an operating system update requires major changes to the internals of the driver.

It seems that Steinberg is having trouble to keep up with drivers etc for their hardware.
It makes you wonder why.....
