Topic: Tempo control with cubase 5


I can't find a way, to control tempo. Has anyone found a possibility to control cubase 5.2. (winxp) making the sequenzer slower or faster with Tranzport while live perfomances or recordings?


Re: Tempo control with cubase 5

Hi Curtis,

I don't think this is possible.  Only certain button combinations are mappable in Cubase, not the datawheel.

I don't think I was able to find any tempo "nudge" functions in Cubase's key mappings so I could be wrong but I'm not sure this would be possible even if the datawheel were mappable in Cubase.

Hi sumonetoknow,

You should just need to install the latest TranzPort drivers off of our site:

(make sure the USB transceiver is unplugged before you install the drivers)

After the drivers are installed and you plug in the USB transceiver, a TranzPort icon should pop up on the top of your computer's screen, click on it and make sure that it's on 'HUI' mode.

Then when you launch ProTools you'll want to go to settings/peripherals/midi controllers and set the TYPE to 'HUI' and set the SEND TO and RECEIVE FROM fields both to 'AlphaTrack'.

And if you still need help you can come back here or email our support at
