To create a VST or AU file:
- Load the Ctrlr.dll (Ctrlr VST/AU) into your DAW
- Load this panel into Ctrlr VST/AU instance.
- Then go to File -> Export -> Export Restricted Instance.
This will build a VST dll or AU (.component) file.
- You can now load this panel independently of Ctrlr.
- Or download pre built files from
Running as VST under Cubase
- In Cubase, Disable †Midi-in **Midi-out ports to the JD990.
- Open JD-990 VST in an instrument track IN=(All Midi Inputs)
- Create Midi track IN=(All Midi Inputs) OUT=(JD-990 Midi-in) (I record midi notes & data to this track).
- In the VST Ctrlr panel connect to the †Midi-in and **Midi-out ~ connected to JD-990 (you disabled them in Cubase ( See step #1)).
- I found the only Midi-thru setting that needs to be checked was
MIDI→Midi Thru→”Plugin-host->Output Device”
(The 5th option down in the fold out menu)
- Engage Monitor on Both tracks.
