I am trying to think of creative ways to incorporate the TR-8 into my workflow. It only allows 96 Khz digitally via USB.
My idea is this:
Work at 48 Khz, use MIDI to trigger TR-8.
When I want to print TR-8 tracks individually, switch project to 96 Khz, allowing Cubase to resample my audio files. (the idea being it will only be temporary for monitoring while tracking the TR-8)
When I have the TR-8 tracks recorded, set project back to 48 Khz, keeping the newly resampled TR-8 tracks (which have to be converted to 48 Khz, but this is ok since it’s downsampling), but also REVERTING back to the original 48Kz waves for all other tracks.
If I do this workflow now, and I look at the wave files, it’s doing two conversions on the existing files. It sounds ok actually, but I don’t think that’s ideal, right (up and then down sampling)
Is there some easy way I don’t know about to make Cubase use the ‘old’ 48Khz files?
I am thinking the only way is to set up a new project to track the audio from the TR-8, then import those wave file stems into the original project. But, I liked my idea because then I could also add effects and hear the total mix (I guess I could still use another project and just ‘undo’ the up conversion in the original project).
