I’m working on a song on Cubasis 3.13. On Wed 02 Dec 2020 I opened the project and Pure Acid baseline synths sound different. I checked the version history of Pure Acid and on Tue 1 Dec 2020, there was the 1.5.0 update that adds MIDI out to Pure Acid. I was lucky to contact the developer JimAudio to ask about the issue. I sent him two audio mixdowns: one from Monday 30 Nov 2020 and another from Wed 02 Dec 2020. The project was completely unopened/unedited between those days. (I can provide audio clips via DM if requested)
Jim answered me:
“I hear that pitch is changed up 7 semitones. also, slides absent in the second file. slides mean Gate knob has changed somehow”
I sent him the preset that I am using and he confirmed that there was no problem with the stand-alone App and no issues with Cubasis 2 either. I checked on my iPad and I can confirm there are no issues on Cubasis 2 and with the stand-alone Pure Acid App. Jim also note:
"it also not remembering knob values after closing Cubasis
seems like something wrong with Cubasis 3. In Cubasis 2 everything seems to work without problems
you can try to ask here about PA with Cubasis 3:
On that forum, other users are experiencing the same weird behavior:
“Anyone having weird issues with Cubasis 3 with PA? It seems very unstable, while Cubasis 2 works good.
Just fired it up for the 1st time. Air 3 latest OS.
Writing midi note data to Cubasis 3 accurately from sequencer. > Baseline synth controls are all way off > but I have no idea if this is right or wrong.
Drums write midi data accurately to Cubasis too.”
I don’t know if the issue has something related to the Known Issue “CBT-317 MIDI event changes are ignored during playback.”
In that case, could I know when it’s expected to release the corresponding maintenance fix?
I’m very happy using Cubase 3 on my iPad. Feels like sci-fi to be able to work in a truly full-desktop environment while on the go or resting on the sofa; it’s game-changing. Despite the different stability issues I am currently experiencing and the considerable amount of bugs listed in the forums, I appreciate the potential of Cubasis 3 and I keep in mind that’s an early version written from scratch.
I encourage you to keep doing great work!
