10 days left to my trial to Cubase 11 so I would really appreciate if anyone could help me before my trial runs out, especially on the MTC issue. There are 4 things I have to get to work before my trial ends if I am to make the switch.
1. I have been interested in switching from Logic to Cubase because of the 16 midi-input-channels limit in Logic. With Cubase it has been easy and I can send 128 midi channels in Cubase from a notation software without a glitch.
This was a big success.
2. I attempted to record the incoming midi from these midi channels (starting with just 1 channel at a time). Doesn’t work: No rhythm is recorded, every note is received but they are superposed on the first beat of the generated midi region.
3. When I double-click on a midi region to edit in the piano roll the software just crashes. Is this just because of my operating system (os X 10.12.6) or is it something to be expected even if I upgrade my OS?
4. MTC: I tried sending MTC from Finale or Logic to Cubase. In both cases when I press play the Cubase cursor just flies passed bar 300. Then when I try to deactivate Sync it crashes. If I change a setting it crashes (only after I attempt playback). What’s strange is that if I go to bar 55 in Finale, then Cubase accurately moves its playback head to bar 55. The problem only occurs when I start the playback, Cubase goes crazy.
Options (locked frames and dropout) are set to default. Nothing else is enabled. I need to absolutely get this to work in order to have audio tracks playing with the score. If this actually works then I will make the switch to cubase.
I find Cubase is good, great intuitive interface and awesome midi features. However it crashed more for me in a few days than Logic did in the last 10 years.
Haven’t had time to test my mixing desk with it yet, or surround.
Any help is extremely appreciated.
