Hey all, long time Audacity user - just switched to Cubase LE as it came free with a purchase of the ZOOM R8.
I purchased the ZOOM R8 to replace the Scarlett 2i2 USB audio interface. There are documented issues with USB connected recording devices and USB latency and multi-track recording. I could tweak the latency issues in Audacity but it was becoming a pain.
When recording straight to the ZOOM R8 and multitracking, there is no latency! I suspected this.
When I record using Cubase as a DAW, I am also not getting any lag… which is nice surprise.
So 2 questions based on the above.
Is Cubase just better than Audacity dealing with the USB lag?
Is the best way to handle multitrack recordings, is to record to the Zoom R8 first, then import to Cubase?
