Firstly, apologies if this has been covered elsewhere but I need some help in choosing the next steps!
I currently mainly run an OT, Dn and Minitaur (with some other bits of outboard)
With 2 kids under 4 and a full time job, the amount of time required by the OT in particular is making completing music too time consuming and therefore not massively fun.
I end up unplugging the DN and messing about with that by itself, and accordingly all my tracks from the last year or so are now pattern heavy (sometimes running through several banks) and of differing pattern lengths. Sequencing them from the OT is painful at times, and obviously pattern chaining on the DN is horrendous for this sort of thing (Elektron - let us save the chains please?!!).
I would like to be able to quickly record long chord progressions off the DN (without the fuck around with OT) to free up these voices for drums, melody etc.
I am thinking an IPAD daw would be these easiest method of doing this and managing all the stuff, and quickly recording mixdowns when tracks are completeish.
Can anyone recommend one?
Been looking at Cubasis in particular but am concerned about not being able to route the following audio path:
DN / Minitaur > IPAD > output of all tracks (incoming and recorded audio) > Analog Heat > IPAD for mixdown.
If I was to purchase a 4in/4out would this be possible with routing options in Cubasis?
Thanks in advance.
