Audiobus: Use your music apps together.
What is Audiobus? — Audiobus is an award-winning music app for iPhone and iPad which lets you use your other music apps together. Chain effects on your favourite synth, run the output of apps or Audio Units into an app like GarageBand or Loopy, or select a different audio interface output for each app. Route MIDI between apps — drive a synth from a MIDI sequencer, or add an arpeggiator to your MIDI keyboard — or sync with your external MIDI gear. And control your entire setup from a MIDI controller.Download on the App Store
Audiobus is the app that makes the rest of your setup better.
Sample/Audio Editing in Cubasis.
Just thought I'd share a new discovery in Cubasis that for me really is the 'Tip of the Year'
Had I discovered this earlier it would have saved me (and probably others) a lot of frustration during the year.
I'd been for long looking for a way to do sample accurate editing in Cubasis and was always annoyed by the 'invisible snap value' that was present as Cubasis defaults to 1/192nd note resolution even when the Grid is turned off.
When editing audio the 1/192nd note 'ticks' vary in length depending on the songs/projects tempo making accurate selection when zoomed in next to if not completely impossible.
The Cubasis manual states this (for the Audio/Sample Editor):
"Between the main and miniature panel lies the ruler, which includes a playhead and two selection locators. Use these to adjust the selection within your audio event, which is marked blue. Depending on the your current time display setting (in the transport panel), the ruler will either display time in seconds or bars / beats."
What surprised me was that the 'grid-snapping' is only active when 'bars/beats' is shown while if 'time' is shown no snapping happens yippee!!!
So for sample-accurate editing set the 'time display' to 'time' instead of 'bars/beats' and voila, sample-accurate editing!
I have to apologise to @LFS for all the complaints about 'bugs' in Cubasis when it was in fact my own lack of 'RTFM & Understand IT' that caused the frustrations, sorry...
As Spock would say: It's only Logic since there is no note-values to snap to when only time is shown...
I'll also take this opportunity to wish all here at the AB-Forum a Happy and Productive New Year 2016!
