Since by band is about 150 km from where I live, I have decided on buying an iPad Air with Cubasis (and some extra stuff like the iTrack Dock, two cheap monitors and some cheap keyboard with “drunk wedding and anniversary celebration musician” style sounds [sometimes called “Tischhupe” in german, which means “table buzzer”], which I leave at the place of the bands guitarist, so I only have to carry the iPad around).
It’s great. Absolutely great. This software is perfect for collecting ideas, for playing around, for quick recording of ideas (we’re working on our next album at the moment).
Also I like the simplicity of using Dropbox and the Cubasis importer into Cubase.
Here is a picture I shot with my phone before we started working this weekend:
So, kudos to Steinberg for this great and, for Visions of Atlantis, very usable and valuable product!
