NIce ... but no Level Envelopes?

Postby ltf3 » Tue Dec 18, 2012 1:12 am

Hi Devs

I was pleasantly surprised to see this released! And its nicely done too .... lots of bases covered very elegantly, the layout suits me perfectly ... straight to work no learning curve at all!

BUT...

No Track Level Envelopes / Automation ???? Huge omission. It makes the Faders a bit useless since we can't execute a fade with them. There's no 'real time' mixdown (is there?) unless I mix to another recorder ( not likely ).

At the price this one absence lets the whole thing down.

Or if I'm wrong please tell me where the level automation is... ( not the Event Fade In/Out controls)

Right now this is the most comprehensive iOS DAW (IMO) ... but when Auria release their announced MIDI addition watch out!

Hi ltf3,

At the moment there is no automation, but each audio/midi event has it's own fade in/out and clip gain handle in the middle.

Hi ltf3

I think most of what level / volume automation accomplishes can also widely be solved by using the event fade / gain handles, even if it requires a few more steps.
To achieve a volume change within a larger event, I would suggest splitting it into multiple events, setting individual gain levels for each and crossfading them.
It might seem a little wonky at first, but what you want is technically there and it works nicely. ;)

So no automation of things like filter cutoff?

Will this be added in the future?

Sorry to say... But BeatMaker 2 does that pretty well
for MIDI and Audio tracks as well.

Meteor does it too, and a lot of other apps a lot cheaper than Cubasis....

Yessir. I'm also not satisfied. But I know they'll
pump / pimp it up to be my first choice of iOS DAWs.
So I'll stay patient using other apps and give Steinberg FR's
and bug reports... I know that this is not the way it should
be. But I'm still a Cubase user and I love my DAW. And I need
a good app that gives us the possibility to transfer projects from
the iPad to a computer which is the only benefit Cubasis delivers
at the moment. I wanted an app like this for a long time...
Well, they screwed it up. But like I said: I believe they'll
come up with all the stuff I need soon. And when it's finally there
it'll give us a great infrastructure to work on projects.
