Up until now, my live setup consisted of an automated Cubase.
There it is no problem to bring a midi track for the light, a synchronous track for audio, and audio clips into a song sequence. Metronome etc. … no problem at all.
The handling of the VSTis is of course problematic. Elaborate automations and routings, as well as constantly loaded instruments and corresponding instability.
Nevertheless, I very often need a synchronous sequence of this kind.
Would you recommend me to install Cubase in parallel now?
If so, as a master, as a slave?
I imagine the audio driver to be problematic. I used to have RME FF UC, but there are not enough inputs and outputs. At the moment it is an Allen & Heath Q PAC, which should also be automated.
Or is it a better idea to use VidPlayerMTC and - maybe even as the main audio player, because this will probably allow you to jump to a certain point in the song. (Is that possible?)
At the moment, however, I am still completely missing a midi player for lighting control.
We have solved one light per rack. Thanks again for that.
But when the song is running it should go on automatically.
