Why does Cubase not go into slave mode in ReWire? Seems to defeat the entire purpose of ReWire and makes things unnecessarily difficult. it happens with Ableton 9, Logic Pro X and Pro Tools so is clearly something being blocked by Steinberg on the Cubase end.
i prefer to use Ableton for composition and arrangement as the workflow fits with me, but prefer to do all my mixing and mastering in Cubase. At the moment I am having to export stems from Ableton, import into Cubase and then mix. If i have arrangement issues, I then need to go back into Ableton, rework, re-export etc etc, which gets very tedious very quickly.
What i am trying to do is use Ableton as the host so I can use my plugins within it, then use Cubase as the slave so I can route instruments from Ableton into Cubase audio tracks in order to mix. However, Steinberg seem to block this for some bizarre reason?!?! If I use Cubase as the host I cannot access my plugin instruments within Ableton obviously, so cannot achieve this.
Unless fixed, I am essentially being pushed by Steinberg’s limitations towards working in Ableton exclusively (even though the mixer is awful) and then not upgrading my Cubase, meaning a lost customer for such a tiny thing. No doubt others who wish to ReWire Cubase as the slave in the position too I would guess.
