[SOLVED] Nanologue / Inter-App / Audio Units

the integration of Nanolouge or Korg Model D doesn’t work and breaks the connection between the apps.
In Audio-Units I find the Korg as well and it works.
But what is with the Nanolouge?

Hi veldrijder,

Thank you for your message.

Aside from system-related IAA limitations, there should be no issues.

Please make sure Background Audio is enabled in the Cubasis setup.

Cubasis supports all kinds of IAA types:

• Effects can be set as insert or send effects
• Instruments are assigned to a MIDI track and automatically receive MIDI from Cubasis
• Generators are inputs for audio tracks

It always depends on the app manufacturer what type of nodes are available.

Given your example it seems that Korg does not provide MIDI compatible IAA instruments.
That’s why they do not appear in the list, when a MIDI track is selected.

These are the steps to use the Korg instrument apps in Cubasis via IAA:

  • Create an audio track
  • Open the Routing tab in the inspector
  • Tap “Mono input”
  • Choose “Inter-App” in the Audio Inputs pop up
  • Choose the desired Korg instrument apps from the list

P.S.: Apple has abandoned Inter-App Audio for quite a while, and has introduced Audio Unit as its successor some years ago.
We suggest to go for Audio Unit apps, and ask app vendors to release their apps in this format too, to let them know about the request.

Hope that helps!


Dear Lars,
thank you for your answers.
Allow me a comment.

  1. Perfect - Nanologue works
  2. Nanologue is a Steinberg Product :laughing: who can I ask to release the app in Audio Unit

Greetings and stay healthy

Hi veldrijder,

Thanks for your message.
Glad to hear the problem is resolved.

For now, we have no information about Nanologue update plans.

Best wishes,

I would actually like to chime in here and say why don’t you all just do away with Nanologue the app and make it an IAP? I don’t like nor do I use IAA’s because I love AUv3’s but this is Steinbergs so why not include it in Cubasis 3 hell I’ll buy it.
