So I three ways to print a click track out of Cubase but I’m wondering if there is a better way. I’m hoping someone can enlighten me.
Use one of your hardware outputs and inputs and literarily record in the click. Downsides are you loose an input/output and you can’t do this in an offline bounce.
Have a track in your template with clicks on all the quarter notes and then export said track. Downsides are it doesn’t work for 6/8, 7/8 or any other compound meter.
Have a Kontakt instrument that plays back a click instrument. This seems like the most promising but I’ve found that it’s kinda buggy. Cubase often looses the midi routing settings in the metronome setup window or sometimes the click just doesn’t sound for reasons I can’t figure out. Also if you mute the track it also mutes the Pre-Fader sends to other outputs which sucks. Would direct outputs fix this? I’ve never used them.
Those are the three ways I know. If anyone knows a better 4th way I’d love to hear it. And for me efficency is very important. Think busy TV film composer with no time to spare. I also have to have the ability to mute the click going to my speakers but at the same time have musicians hear it through a separate output.
Thanks! Hopefully this is helpful to others as well.
