within the last days I was able to test Cubasis 3 on my two Android devices. The first one is a Huawei Media Pad M5, and the second one is a Huawei Mate 10 pro.
Basically, both devices run Cubasis with a little tweak of the “Engine Buffering” setting (>40ms seems to be a good value for me to be able to work witch 10 or more tracks)
However, after creating a project with more instruments than in the “Init” template, the application did not start anymore. The only thning that worked was the hint of Lars to rename the project folder and the project name.
The reason why we have to change the project folder as well is, that someone thought it would be a good idea to link the project name with the folder to make programming easier, which is, bad for the users, because if we only rename one part (folder or project name) we are able to load Cubasis, but not the project, because the names are different and therefore the project cannot be found. Changing both to the same name (project name and folder) resolves this, but if we load the project again, close Cubasis and open it again, the problem is, well, back again…
After some tests with the Cubasis instruments, I found out, that this only happens (in my case), if I add an instance of “Micrologue” to the project. If none of the instruments is a Micrologue instance, I can open and close Cubasis without any problem. No matter how many instances of other instruments are running.
To get a little bit more information about this, I tried to change additional settings like “bit depth”, “studio quality” and other settings, but none of these seem to change the behavior.
Right now I think that it has to do with the initialization sequence of Cubasis. As soon as the project has been renamed and Cubasis loads an “empty” project, I can switch to my old project and work with it.
So what would be my quick fix for this? Well I think if you add an additional checkbox to the project settings which can be used to disable the “auto load function” would solve the problem until you found the reason for it.
Please let me know what you think.
Edit: If you (Cubasis users) want a quick workaround for this problem please try the following steps.
- Create a new Project by klicking “Media” -> “New Project”
- Make sure that no Micrologue Instrument is on a Track
- Select this new, empty project every time before you close the app
- After starting the app, load your project as usual
- Before closing the app, ALWAYS change to the empty project
For me, this helped
