Korg iMono/Poly and Cubasis IAA issue

Hi everyone… i recently grabbed this awesome iOS synth and am trying to use it as an IAA unit with Cubasis but it doesn’t show up in the IAA list of Cubasis.

I happen to also have Beatmaker 3 which it shows u fine with.

Anyone else experience this?

EDIT: It shows up in GB as well as iMPC2 but NOT FL Studio.

Hi carbonchris,

Thanks for your message.

Cubasis supports all kinds of IAA types:

• Effects can be set as insert or send effects
• Instruments are assigned to a MIDI track and automatically receive MIDI from Cubasis
• Generators are inputs for audio tracks

However it always depends on the app manufacturer what type of nodes are available.

Given your example it seems that Korg does not provide MIDI compatible IAA instruments.
That’s why they do not appear in the list, when a MIDI track is selected.

These are the steps to use the Korg instruments in Cubasis via IAA:

  • Create an audio track
  • Open the Routing tab in the inspector
  • Tap “Mono input”
  • Choose “Inter-App” in the Audio Inputs pop up
  • Choose the desired Korg instrument apps from the list

Please find more information about IAA right here:

In general, Apple’s Audio Unit format works more straight forward and many app vendors updated their instruments to be compatible to this standard.

Hope that helps!


Best,
Lars
