I'm new to this forum, so hello everyone
First off, just want to say Cubasis is amazing! Can't believe how much they've managed to cram into this app, so well done Steinberg you've done a fantastic job
My setup is IK Multimedia iRig Pro Keys, iPad Air with iOS 7.1, Cubasis 1.7.2 and various apps such as Animoog, SampleTank, iGrand Piano etc, I'll refer to these as "sound generator apps" from now on.
I was hoping someone would be able to explain how I go about controlling my sound generators from Cubasis, i.e. I want to use my MIDI keyboard to record MIDI into Cubasis while at the same time have it pass THRU to the sound generator app, then I want the audio from the sound generator app to come back into Cubasis on an audio track so I can hear what I'm playing and add real time effects etc. Then when I hit play in Cubasis, I want the recorded MIDI to go into the sound generator app and it's audio to play back through the Cubasis audio track.
During playback, if I mute a sound generator app's audio track in Cubasis I want it to stop sounding (even though MIDI is still going into it from the Cubasis MIDI track).
I guess basically I'm trying to use my sound generator apps like VST instrument plugins on a computer DAW.
I was hoping to achieve this via Audiobus version 1 or 2, but that doesn't seem to have any control over the MIDI side of things and the audio output from the sound generator just bypasses Cubasis completely. Inter App Audio also doesn't give me this functionality and Virtual MIDI just seems to have a mind of its own!
So my question is; Is what I'm trying to do even possible?
If it is, does anyone know how I do it please?
If it isn't, does anyone know if Steinberg are working on a solution to this, or am I basically just expecting too much?!
