Cubase MIDI CC List

Cubase MIDI CC List

This is a list of Cubase’s default CC numbers. The list is pulled from the MIDI Controller Setup in Cubase. This list will let you have an overview without having to even open Cubase.

Configuring MIDI devices in Cubase such as MIDI controllers can be a little confusing in the beginning. I feel pretty confident in MIDI practice, but it was not log ago since I got a new MIDI controller. I bought a small KORG nanoKONTROL which, of course, was already configured. Only problem was I didn’t know which fader controlled which MIDI CC. Luckily I was able to find the official MIDI editor from KORG. From the editor I could see what CC the fader/knobs were assigned to. The only problem now was that I didn’t know which CC was assigned to what in Cubase. After some research I was able to pull a list of MIDI CC in Cubase. I thought I would make a reference chart of it so it would be easier to configure your MIDI controller without going in and out of Cubase.
