Greetings. I’m a brand new Cubase user. Other than learning to use the many features Cubase has available, one of the things I want to do is play my bass along with existing audio tracks. This existing audio may be an iPhone voice memo from rehearsal, or a popular song I have downloaded and want to learn/play along to.
I imported a song from my iTunes library (on PC) without any problems, however, I am not able to import from Dropbox or from the voice memo that I emailed myself and downloaded to desktop.
Is there a conversion tool people like most, or just spin the Google and see what comes up? I was able to convert files to mp3, in Dropbox, then I successfully imported (1) file into Cubase, however, when I try to import others (new project) I get the message “The file cannot be accessed by the system”…
I would not be using Dropbox for this, it adds a layer of complexity where none is needed, is not made for use with realtime daw work, and if you try to use it to sync your files, will cause file permission problems (locked-in-use files). Daws need their audio files stored on the machine where they will be used. End of story, if anyone says different they are selling you something.
I’ve been using iTunes for years, but I’ve been confused with how to edit track information (edit in iTunes, or edit the files where they are stored). It’s not something I’ve attempted for a while, but I think there is a way to get those tracks out of synch, and create problems.
Are you saying, upload audio files to a specific folder in iTunes, then import to Cubase from there?
