Fairly new to Cubase/Wavelab. Am just in the final stages of the first album I have made in a long time and am down to the mixing/mastering stage. I did the composition in Logic and started the mixing phase by exporting my stems from Logic as 32-bit AIFF. I was disappointed to learn that re-importing those stems into another Logic project resulted in a conversion to 24-bit. I have done some initial tests with mixing those stems in Cubase with a 64-bit workflow and I have to say the audio sounds so good I believe it is the first time I have heard a computer audio sounding as good as 2" tape → 1/2" master.
Because I am new to Wavelab/Cubase I am having some basic issues, first among them getting sound to come out of the audio interfaces I already own. It’s probably user error but the devices I have include the Zoom F6 which I bought for it’s HDR floating point inputs, a MOTU M2 and some Expert Sleepers devices for Eurorack modular.
I’m on Apple Silicon when I’m portable and would like a small (ideally USB-C powered) I/O interface that will allow me to do 64-bit/96kHz mixing in Cubase and then 64-bit/96kHz mastering (or pre-mastering) in Wavelab.
I tried using the Zoom which is quite portable but have found myself in some strange situations where changing from the internal Mac headphone interface causes the project to play at the wrong speed.
