I have a Yamaha MOX, and it has a large dial which controls almost any slider/dial there is on the MOC VST
But it also controls alost any other dial/slider on 3rd party VSTs/Effects and the sliders on the Cubase Mixer
I would like to try and replicate this behavious using one of my MIDI controllers. I tried using the 'learn function' but of course it will only change the value on a control on the VST I have set to 'learn'
Using the MOX Dial, all I have to do is posit the mouse pointer over a chosen dial/slider and the MOX dial moves the dial/slider
I believe there is some software that allows this using the MS Surface Dial. But I would like ot assign a the dial on one of my MIDI controllers, for example my Arturia Beatstep Pro has a large dial which would be ideal.
Does the dial on the MOX send out a special MIDI command unique to itself? Which I thought couldn't be the case as there are a fixed number (127) of MIDI commands?

I did and it tells me there are various USB devices but the details tab just shows a long string of random characters. I think I'll end up buying the Surface Dial and that software that makes it work with a DAW. Essentially it seems that whatever it does, it mimmicks the mouse-wheel. I can use the mouse-wheel of course but it just doesn't seem as responsive, maybe the Surface Dial won't either, I won't know till I try
