Hi, my friend and I both have ZOOM r16 interfaces. I’m trying to get him some tracks so that he can lay down some guitar on top. He’s not the best with technology, so initially I was trying to export the files from Cubase onto the ZOOM so that he could just plug into the ZOOM and record guitar. But every time I listen back to the files on the ZOOM, it’s just loud static noise, no audible tracks. Which is strange since the .wav files themselves sound fine. SO, then I thought, well I’ll just give him the Cubase files to open with his version of Cubase LE that came with the ZOOM, but I have Cubase 11. Will he be able to listen to the tracks properly and record guitar (once I set up his ZOOM for him as an interface, lol)? Thanks in advance for any advice whatsoever.
Cubase files are the same
The interface is irrelevant, If it is set up properly, as @Kristijan said, the files created are the same format.
As far as opening *.cpr files, all the products in the Cubase/Nuendo line will open projects across the product line, and features that are not available in a lower version will simply be absent when opened in such.
I think, in some rare use-cases it can cause problems.
But if you’re sending a project file that only has Audio and no plugins there will be no problem.
I do this fairly often (collaborate with non-tech oriented people), and my solution is to send a complete mixdown to them, so all they hear is what I want them to hear, and I think this makes it harder for them to end up down a technical rabbit hole
great advice. i think i’ll go the mixdown route instead of trying to send cpr files. thanks for your help again!
