First, some background. I’m a long time user MOTU’s Digital Performer (since DP 4.5) and use a combination of MOTU AVB interfaces (Monitor 8, 1248) and a UAD Twin (for its Unison preamp emulation). With Digital Performer, I can configure use of both the UAD and MOTU interfaces at the same time since DP supports multiple audio systems simultaneously.
It would be very nice if Cubase allowed this, but it appears it can select only a single audio system (Devices->Device Setup->VST Audio System, then select ONE from the popup). So, it appears to allow using the MOTU interfaces OR the UAD, but not both (well, I could go optical out of the MOTU into the UAD for 8 additional channels, but that’s not why I invested in AVB).
Am I missing something, or is this a true limitation rather than user error? If Cubase is indeed limited in this way, I’ll take this opportunity to submit a feature request
Everything else about Cubase (UI, feature set, etc) suits my workflow perfectly
