I’m having some sync issues with Cubase and Pro Tools…wondering if anyone out there is doing something similar and could help.
I’m sequencing and recording audio in Cubase 7. I’m trying to set up Pro Tools on a second computer that will run video and slave to Cubase via MMC and MTC.
Here’s what I want:
Press play in Cubase and Pro Tools starts, press Stop in Cubase and Pro Tools Stops. Scrub in the timeline in Cubase and Pro Tools scrubs as well. I am able to get to the stop/start aspect to work, but not the scrubbing function.
Here’s how I have things configured:
In the sync panel in Cubase, I have ‘Internal Timecode’ selected as the timecode source.
I’m using IpMidi to send MTC and MMC from Cubase to Pro Tools. I have ‘MC Master Active’ selected and have IpMidi selected as my MMC output.
I’m not using any midi clock features so I have them unchecked. (Screen shot of this is attached)
With this setup and the transport set to ‘INT Sync’ the two machine play and stop in sync, but there’s no scrub. When I enable sync on the transport, scrub starts to work BUT the Cubase playhead no longer moves and Cubase seems to be in slave mode.
Is there a way to get the scrub feature to work as I’d like?
Thanks for reading,
