2 dlls inside cubase.
1 program for controlling the lcd under the encoders
1 program for rout everything, midi from cubase and tcp/ip client
1 program for controlling the display screen and also being the tcp/ip server, and also receive the midi from bcr 2000
So I take it that one PC is dedicated for the touchscreen and the rotary LCD thing, but is running via TCP/IP loopback devices to actually work with Cubase.

Buy a glass panel, drill 22 holes in it, attach the encoders on the glass panel and then put the glass over an lcd screen. This is the easy part.
After that, you spent 6 months trying to make all this things work together while maintaining your sanity. This is the hard part. Don't worry of you start drooling and baubling a lot. This is part of the process. You REALLY have to worry if you wake up naked at the wolf's den in the zoo and don't remember a thing.
And I thought you still had a fully working BCR on screen. Hm... sounds like a load of fun [/sarcasm] and the "open" BCR is behind the touchscreen LCD.
But what about the software? Is that a graphical interface thing or something? Or does somebody need to know how to code things?
pauloegidio wrote:c) we used one from magic touch.
Isn't that actually 2 if I count in the "lemour" type LCD and the BCR modification? Unless that WAS a Lemour.

There's a pan screen and the volume is already controlled by the faders on the 01v96. 01v96 have a penning encoder, but it controls only the current selected channel. Using the touch screen, you can set the pan very quickly at anyone of the 16 channels. The tricky part is to have the 01v96 and the touch screen ALWAYS in sync, so the channels names are correct all the time. Cubase already have an 01v96 midi controller "driver" builtin.
But... do I actually NEED the 01v96, or can this be done with the trekkie touchscreen thing?

I actually wanted to ask: where do I get that thing for practical use? And what does someone need? Will there be manuals for DIY controllers, etc?

Welcome to the jungle.
