I’m on a MacBook Pro 16 2019 2.9 32 GBs Cubase 10.5 latest
I have installed the latest version of the desktop and iOS app.
iOS Studio Pass 18.104.22.1680
(it says this number when you open the app and click on the steinberg logo, yet it says 4.0.44 in the App Store, so I don’t know which is correct)
Desktop app is VSt performer 30 day trial - 22.214.171.1240 and I downloaded a couple of days ago.
I want to connect cubase pro to my iPhone x to stream my songs through to the app live for reference mixing.
When I connect to the desktop with my steinberg login, I assume I need a second Steinberg account to connect from my iPhone, because you cannot log into the same account twice. I created one but when i try and login from my iPhone nothing happens when you press connect. it remains as not connected.
When I try and connect via ID on the desktop- it does not generate a key for me. The key area remains empty no matter what button I press top right of screen.
I have an iPad, other than the laptop i have been using as the primary studio workstation.
The thing is the whole point is I want to reference mixes via iPhone speakers as opposed to iPad or anything else.
Hopefully the developer will chime in and explain those errors.
“Somebody tries to connect to you, but uses an incompatible version.” Yes, exactly so. Make sure to use the latest versions, see https://helpcenter.steinberg.de/hc/en-us/articles/360012899079
To get an ID number with the plugin, do not log in but click the ID button. Make sure Performer also does not log in and types this exactly as provided, including space between the two numbers. Also note that you need to get a new ID if you tried to connect otherwise.
Nothing of this will work if both devices are connected to the same local area network (LAN). In that case, use iOs Performer (iPad) instead which will light that blue LAN button when it detects the computer running Cubase/Nuendo with VST Connect started. Studio Pass does not provide that functionality.
I am using the latest versions - I have said that every single time.
It does NOT work.
I have tried with 4G - with wifi - with password - with ID key - nothing works.
I don’t want to use an iPad. I want to use an iPhone.
Thank God I did not spend 128 pounds on this thing.
It is unintuitive and I have wasted hour and hours, with people here trying to make out it was my fault, and I was the stupid one.
It should be explained on the website that it WILL NOT WORK with iPhones - how is it steinberg can let people buy this for 128 pounds when it does not work. Just simply say only works with iPad (if it does) - and explain the limitations. And certainly to those others on this thread giving out the wrong advice to people - don’t be so dismissive next time.
nobody is being dismissive - on the contrary people are trying to help. And nobody is saying your stupid or making out it is your fault !!! (although your ranting is getting pretty boring)
other people (including myself) have this working so YOU need to find out what is different in your setup compared to others…
Musicullum has already said that this won’t work over the LAN with Studio Pass - so no point in trying that.
I’ve suggested that you you try another device as the ‘client’ to see if that works - then we can see if the studio side is working ok.
If you just want keep repeating the same ranting posts then go ahead but it’s not going to get you up and running.
LAN means “local area network” - in your case that almost certainly means wifi - but I’m guessing as you provide no information.
The 3G/4G/5G (non-LAN) connection is what you are going to need to use.
The error you get then is “Somebody tries to connect to you, but uses an incompatible version” - which (as Musicullum says) implies that you have a version mismatch somewhere. So you need to double/triple check the version numbers of the software. Check the version number inside the plugin don’t just assume it’s correct - might be something wrong with your installation.
I’m suggesting you get hold of another laptop to try it with the full version of VST connect performer - if that works then at least we know that the studio side is ok. You could also use the IOS version of VST connect performer but that’s a paid for app in the apple appstore so you might not want to do that just to test.
So i have the latest full connect VST pro installed.
This version says 4.0.44.
when I check on the steinberg logo on the plugin though it says 126.96.36.199. So I don’t know which one it is exactly, but it is the newest download dated June 5 2020.
The iOS version I have is the newest latest install.
I’m not sure what you mean by saying i may not want pay to download it, as I obviously already have it, since that is what I have been saying ive been having issues with all along. Or are we talking about a different iOS app? I searched the app store and saw nothing else other than an iPad version.
I won’t be able to get hold of another laptop, so that’s a no go there.
yes - you pointed that out earlier (and I mentioned it again later)
problem is that they are running older version of VST connect plug - hence can’t get it connected even over WAN. It’s not gonna work until they update their Cubase computer to the latest version…but it’s hard to get that message through
