A wee bit of an unusual post, Im looking for people’s advice on how I might achieve this for a live setup using a laptop and cubase…
I’m wanting to use cubase 6 as a live drum machine, possibly controlled via the touch pads on my piano top left hand axiom 49 keyboard.
Specifically, my old drum machine has styles each with 4 variations, A, B, C, D. And also fills/breaks Typically the ‘A’ variation will be the verse and the rest choruses. I want to record the styles as wavs, then somehow use cubase to play the styles (simple enough) but the tricky bit is when I want a fill which would then lead me into the next variation. It needs to be all seamless so that during mid A variation I press fill and then go into variation B once the fill has completed.
The benefit of wanting to work with cubase/laptop is I can use the virtual intrument too to create a nice bass sound for my left hand keyboard AND run it all with a USB cable.
Just not sure the best way to achieve this in cubase? Set up stereo tracks, one each for Variation A, B, C, D, Fills, Breaks etc… but the how to trigger them so that its all seamless?
Any help appreciated.
