Over the years, I've become more aggravated with trying to integrate a DAW with a synth workstation. I experience occasional significant issues using my current Cubase AI and Yamaha moXF8. I simply opened Cubase yesterday and it reset some moXF parameters (voices in Patterns), which caused me to restart it. (I've had a few other workstations that I used with Cakewalk/Sonar with better success.) For this reason, I've simply avoided using Cubase much of the time and try to work direct on the moXF.
But it would be nice at times to simply have a bigger interface screen for the moXF that mimicked some DAW-type features such as piano roll/staff; event list; etc. (extensive event & note editing direct with the moXF can be daunting with the small screen.) Possibly a dedicated software that would not require complicated comm settings and essentially act as another synth interface. No Download/Uploads, just a larger screen with additional views.
Am I dreaming?
