It’s my first time working with a VJ for our live shows. He has prepped videos/clips to coincide in exact time with our live set including the breaks between songs.
Cubase handles backing track playback live. I am trying to find a simple way to link my laptop (Cubase 9.5, Win 7pro and UAD Twin) with his via USB (we are both on Windows OS)
The Goal for live performances:
- I press play once on Cubase (the whole set is config’d in Cubase to play continuously).
- This triggers a one time MIDI on Message to TouchDesigner on VJ’s laptop and we’re pretty much in sync the whole time.
I’m assuming I’m gonna keep Cubase on Internal Timecode and use it to drive the TouchDesigner Software
- Do I need a MIDI/USB device in between to sync/relay the message from my laptop to his?
- Can i accomplish this with a USB Bridge Cable? Or some other simple method?
