    1. This program requires both 32-bit and 64-bit Java Runtime (JRE) for Windows.
    2. So visit java.com and download 32-bit runtime automatically.
    3. Then head to http://java.com/en/download/manual.jsp to manually install Windows Offline 64-bit version,If you run the program without JRE, you get: “No JVM could be found on your system. Please define EXE4J_JAVA_HOME to point to an installed 32-bit JDK or JRE or download a JRE from www.java.com”

How to set up MOTU Microbook II + Yamaha 10/2 Mixer + Genelec 8030?

Send Main outputs from Motu Microbook (+4 dB signal) to Yamaha 10/2 Line channel 5/6, and set Gain to the grey area (+4 dB). The Level on 5/6 should be near 95%.

You may then connect ST OUT (+4dBu signal) to Genelec 8030 and set volume on Genelec to 10am from the left (0).

Ideal volume on Yamaha 10/2 would be ST 2pm and C/R volume, 11:30am.



Turn off all input volume on mixer – mic, esp guitar input on mixer as it has noise.
Microbook MAIN OUT is .. +4 dBu line . so feed to 5/6 LINE , and choose Gain +4 (white area). Manual says ST CH LINE INPUT for 5/6 = GAIN range = +10 to -34.



● “Consumer” gear (such as home audio equipment) usually has line inputs and outputs with a nominal
(average) level of –10 dB.
● Professional audio gear usually has line inputs and outputs with a nominal level of +4 dB.
● You should always feed –10 dB inputs with a –10 dB signal. If you feed a +4 dB signal into a –10 dB
input you are likely to overload the input.
● You should always feed +4 dB inputs with a +4 dB signal. A –10 dB signal is too small for a +4 dB
input, and will result in less-than-optimum performance.
● Many professional and semi-professional devices have level switches on the inputs and/or outputs
that let you select –10 or +4 dB. Be sure to set these switches to match the level of the connected
● Inputs that feature a “Gain” control—such as the mono-channel inputs on your Yamaha mixer—will
accept a very wide range of input levels because the control can be used to match the input’s sensitivity
to the signal. More on this later.

How to configure Remote SL for Massive?

  1. Head to Automap software and run it
  2. Check and make sure the ‘Massive’ plugin has been checked in ‘Software Setup > VST’
  3. Restart Cubase or refresh plugin once done.
  4. Load the new ‘Massive (Automap)’ plugin instead of ‘Massive’.
  5. Now the default setup might not be too useful for sound making, so we configure each
    knob by selecting ‘Mixer/Plug-in Mappings > Massive > Edit Mapping…’
  6. We add a new ‘Page’ of setup by selecting ‘Add Page’ in ‘Edit Mapping’ window.
    Now the Remote SL hardware will have a new page of tools when you left-hand scroll up
    or down on it.
  7. Next we start assigning each knob and slider. The knobs and sliders that can be assigned
    are the left 4 rows and the right 2 rows. The 3rd right row is for hardware/software communications. To start assigning, we can select ‘Learn > On’ in the ‘Edit Mapping’ window.
  8. Then we turn or slide the knob we want to use on the Remote SL hardware.
  9. Then we modify the parameter in the loaded ‘Massive’ plugin in Cubase.
  10. That’s it! Start assigning the sliders and knobs you want to use. Create new ‘Pages’ if you like.
    Remember to Save the Mapping into a file and back up, so that it can be used again
    in the future when Cubase or everything is re-installed.
