I’ve been soliciting advice on the forum about gear and then usually do what I am told. So far everyone has helped and I’ve been satisfied with my decisions. After moving some other gear, the digitakt arrived last night and may just be the best combo with Audulus, but I want to stay away from DAW’s.
I was running the Digitakt synced with Beatmaker 3 on an iPad mini 4. It was fun for a minute, then the cpu got crunchy just adding one AUv3. Also, I have more fun using modules and logic completely within Audulus and then recording straight to AUM — no post, no edits.
Right, but I need a clock sync into Audulus and I need to bring the Digitakt audio back into AUM simultaneously (it would be nice to not bring it out of a DAC, and back into an ADC — can I somehow use the USB connection to just keep it digital). I think I can manage the syncing with tools in Audulus, but I am foggy on how to get the midi seq signals from the Digitakt into the iPad and into Audulus. I think I just need a nudge.
One thing I like about skipping a DAW here is I could conceivably trim the cpu fat I don’t need.
I don’t want to use a laptop, I’d like to be able to head to a cafe with the Digitakt and iPad and just be able to cook tracks.
