Whatever help the mods or users can give would be appreciated - thanks!
1) What is the latency associated with using Cubasis? Is it just the combined latency of the interface and the iPad, or does Cubasis itself introduce some latency? I think I can get the interface latency from the interface web pages ... what is the iPad latency (44.1 KHz)? I like to sing with a little "comfort reverb" in the cans, but if the latency is too high, I guess I will need another solution rather than an insert in the Cubasis audio track.
2) Does Cubasis record in cycle record looping between the locators, with "lanes" on subsequent passes, like Cubase 6.5? Can I do that with a backing track playing?
3) I understand I can't import a Cubase project into Cubasis, so I wonder if the best solution is to bounce down to a stereo .wav file in Cubase, then use that as a backing track in Cubasis to overdub new audio and MIDI tracks to.
But how would I get the backing track into the iPad? This youtube from the community thread http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aQRNj7O6lgo
shows how to bring audio into Cubasis from software like Sampletank or a drum machine, but I'm not sure how to apply that to what I'd like to do - bring audio, like a .wav or FLAC file, into Cubasis from my PC or Soundcloud. I've never used a non-PC product so sorry about this one. I think I understand I have to use iTunes ... but not sure if that's the case.
4) Does Cubasis care which platform the Cubase 6.5 is running on? Even though it is not supported/recommended, my C6.5 runs fine on XP, but I'd hate to go buy an iPad just to find out I can't import my Cubasis project to XP.
Sorry for the long post - thanks for any help!
