Vegas synced to Cubase...
Hi, I just thought I would share this with everyone...
Last night I managed to set Cubase as the master and Vegas as the slave on the same machine.
The reason I did this is that Vegas lets you output full screen video via firewire without losing your second monitor (something Cubase won’t do). I used Midi over Lan+ to create a local pipe. This is specifically for connecting one midi device to another on the same machine.
Initially I had no luck until I realized that I had different frame rates set on the two applications. The playback was a little jerky at times and this is something I will be experimenting with, trying different resolutions/codecs/formats etc.
This means I am now running midi and vst’s from cubase (plus triggering Gigastudio) and audio/video from Vegas. As the song progresses the plan is to render the tracks until everything is in Vegas.
No doubt some of you are already doing this type of thing, but as it was a bit of a “voyage of discovery” for me, I thought I would share it in the hope that it might help someone out, somewhere along the way.
