My question revolves about the limitation with Cubase 8 or the limitation in which your
computer sends and receives MIDI information.
For example: Can your computer send MIDI information to 8 (or 12) external MIDI devices without problems?
Of course this has to do with the processing speed of the computer.
To explain my question in why i would like to know that i will give a little background of my wishes or the way i make music.
I make electronic music and love effects in any type of sound. In my 20 years experience making music i learned that too much “hard” work KILLS creativity or you will lose control or the grip to create the end product.
I like to experiment using effects in music or make changes in any type of sound in the song or at any point of time.
Making music is a real satisfaction but building a complete song (for me) can sometimes be a real headache. Especially when you’re not satisfied with the song and have to begin all over again.
My idea… Let’s say you have 8 audio or MIDI tracks containing a beat, melody or background sounds. Is it possible to hook up a MIDI controller or MIDI synthesizer to each separate audio or MIDI track so you can make changes on the spot or as the song is playing?
Maybe it is a little too far fetched to have a single MIDI controller hooked up to a track which only contains a single bass, kick or snare sound. But i want to make any type of change possible at any point of time in the fastest and easiest way possible.
So… is there any limit to Cubase or a computer in sending MIDI information back and forwards?
I know it will probably cost a fortune to hook up 8 or 12 MIDI controllers (or even 4 MIDI synthesizers) to a single computer to make music but i think it is the easiest way to make experimental music and keep the creativity level up.
