I am working on a song I dont have a bass guitar only electric and pedal gt100 that has midi , I tried to play bass by electric guitar midi mode but the notes are not playing in time, Is it better if I get a midi controller or a bass guitar
Maybe, it’s just this issue. Check it, please.
Notes not playing on time.
Could be a lot of things but it’s probably just audio latency.
Lot more info needed.
So you have something that puts out midi notes like a keyboard?
You have it setup with something that creates sound like a VSTi?
It’s out of time when you record it or play it back?
What is the buffer size in your audio interface setup?
As a MIDI guitatrist I would say if you don’t have ‘killer chops’
get either a MIDI keyboard or a real bass guitar.
However if you DO have great chops, one of the Roland MIDI guitar controllers will work just fine.
I currently use a Roland GR55 as my main controller.
A bit pricey yes, but Roland does have cheaper ones with no built-in sounds.
So in that case the bass sounds would come from within Cubase or from a 3rd party plug like ‘Trilian’.
