Really need some advice on something i’ve been thinking of doing for quite a while now. Just have not had the time to actually put it into principle but also apprehensive as not sure if it will actually work correctly. What i’m trying to achieve is two main objectives at the same time. I want everything in sync. I’m not sure if I can do it in one big link or if I need two separate methods or even if it can be achieved.
Use imac running Cubase 9 with VST plugins in sync along with Cirklon slaved to master clock of DAW triggering outboard synths / drum machines recorded direct into a QU32 with a Expert Sleepers Usamo. I think this can be achieved from forums posts I have read on here, Cirklon forums, expert sleepers etc. I have around 26 outputs from synths/drum machines running individual TRS/TS cables into 26 line in’s on the QU32. Leaving around 6 spare line in’s.
Use the chord assistance plug within Cubase but hooking up an external, separate TI2 sound source not in the above chain (i think) so Cubase can trigger the chords and TI2 sounds from the separate source with that audio going directly into QU32. That would mean everything in sync.
I have 6 spare channels on the QU32 one of which one will be used for first usamo that goes into the cirklon and triggers the other synths. I also have a MOTU Microlite which could be use somewhere but i’m not sure exactly how that would go into this mix. Not even sure if I would need a second USAMO.
The main issue i’m trying to work out is how to go about using chord assistant in cubase, what i would like is to use this inside cubase to trigger the seperate ti2. I still want the cirklon to work in sync at the same time. I don’t think it would work in the main loop (imac, cirklon situation) this is just a guess i could be wrong.
Would be interesting to know peoples thoughts and ideas if this could actually be achieved. Something I really hope can work and can finally put this idea into action. Any input is welcome.
