I bought Cubasis 3 and have spend a couple of weeks in frustration. I have studied the product and read the manual. I have searched this forum. I have watched the youtubes. I have experience with computers and software, including sequencers and audio recording. Cubasis for me is just not reliable or dependable. Is it for you?
I am running Cubasis on an iPad Air 2 with plenty of memory and using a Soundcraft Notepad-8FX as the interface… perhaps not a recommended interface, but it has the inputs, outputs and digital connections needed.
I have had trouble monitoring recording. Sometime the headphone jack on the iPad works, sometime it doesn’t. Sometime the digital out to the Soundcraft works and sometimes it doesn’t.
I have pretty consistently poor audio with crackles and noise. It seems I have to provide Cubasis with very low audio or else it distorts. When I normalize the low recordings more crackles are introduced. There does not seem to be any way to monitor input levels in Cubasis. I have fiddled with the various settings on the audio setup page (IE latency, etc.).
External Inter-Apps don’t load consistently and require jumping out of Cubasis to start-up and then try again. Then close Cubasis and start again. Or do a iPad reset and try again.
I have gone back to Garageband and everything just works. But I like the Cubasis interface and added features and really want to use it.
Perhaps the problem is my (getting old) iPad Air 2. I am planning on a new iPad Pro soon so perhaps that will make things better? I read the type C-USB on the Pro can be an issue so maybe that will not fix anything?
Anyone using an Air 2 without problems?
Any suggestions would be appreciated (other than closing all apps and restarting the iPad which I have done multiple times).
