Hey Steinberg, Can a long time user get that back into Cubase or something similar? Alot of folks might not know what that is or does, but it’s a great creative tool for midi programming.
Interactive Phrase Synth
Given the wide availability of software virtual instruments for Cubase VST these days, you’d be forgiven for assuming that the Interactive Phrase Synth was a synthesizer in the conventional sense, ie. a sound generator. However, in this case it’s actually ‘Phrase’ that’s the operative word. The IPS is like an unusually complex arpeggiator, which is used to generate new musical phrases and motifs by processing MIDI note data. It is a purely MIDI-based module, which has been a part of Cubase since early versions on the Atari ST. It’s ‘Interactive’ in that, to get the best out of it, the user must provide a fair amount of real-time input.
Would be great for this to be in Cubase again. Cheers…
