Just to say this is an absolutely fantastic piece of software – hats off to you! I recently multi sampled a drumkit, and once all the drum mic channels had been split up into parts, it came to around 3000 samples.
Hi, I just wanted to say thanks for providing a useful tool.
I was looking for an automated track export utility as I have upgraded to Cubase 4, but I still have friends on Cubase 3, so I wanted to still be able to share data at track level if I can’t do it at project level.
Why steinberg programmers don’t include the powerful MEAP features directly in the export dialog?? It could be simply the most powerful export system ever created for a D.A.W.! However It’s really a powerful program and I Just adore it!
One of the most unpleasant and time consuming chores with either Nuendo or Cubase has always been the export operation. A task that in addition to fetching the Tea etc., has usually been dumped on the trainee, for obvious reasons.
The speed and efficiency of MEAP is quite impressive and has enabled us to remove a significant amount of overhead from our workflow.
Just to say this is an absolutely fantastic piece of software – hats off to you! I recently multi sampled a drumkit, and once all the drum mic channels had been split up into parts, it came to around 3000 samples. I was soloing, setting locators, exporting and naming by hand. Got about 500 files in and thought…there HAS to be another way to do this.
After I’ve done my thing, we focus on recording the vocals and the live instruments: guitars, bass, drums, horns, strings, and so on. As we record these in a commercial studio, I’ll export WAV stems from Cubase, using Phil Pendlebury’s MEAP program. I’ll include a MIDI file with tempo information and markers, plus a click, so they can set up their Pro Tools session exactly like I have it.
Now the new version is out, I wil add my public thanks for adding the new exporting of cycle markers feature. For what I do, it’s an absolutley marvellous tool and will save me a huge amount of effort, even if i will probably drink too much coffee now!
Keep up the great work. And anyone thinking about buying this – Don’t hesitate
As a studio owner and engineer, mixer, producer I can’t emphasize enough how
Time = Money. And MEAP saves time. Plus, during that export time I am not staring at a computer with my back to the band. I am instead talking to the band or catching up on callbacks or cleaning up or getting ready for the next session.
This has already saved about 2 hours after I purchased this today. I spent the time with better things than creating stems of about 200 midi tracks. Meap did this all by itself, better than a studio assistant.. fantastic! Thanks Phil!!
I just wanted to say that this application is a life saver when it comes to getting audio from Cubase 4 into Ableton Live in such a way that its easy to cut up the audio in live for the session view for playing live.
I cant say enough thank yous, you have made a very tedious process easy, quick, efficient and details, thanks for your hard work.
MEAP version 6.4 here. Just got it rolling. I’m watching periodically over to my DAW and rack of slave computers as 21 midi tracks are automatically exporting……….. THAT is heaven sent!! My projects are usually orchestral and out of my 220+ tracks that I have loaded at all times as a template, I record 75+90 or more.
Hey Phil just wanted to say huge thanks for your amazing product. I’m doing track laying for Harry Potter Half Blood Prince Movie at the moment, we’re running late and I never would have got through it in time without MEAP – it’s not nearly 5am and still another couple of cues to do before we record at Abbey Rd at 10am!
When working with Hardware Soundmodules your tool is indespenisble – as I do not have to enable my Hardware-Synths as External-Synth-VSTi which would cause a lot of Latency and cost a lot of Audio-Inputchannels.
Simply open an empty Audiotrack enable Solosafe & Monitoring and I’m ready to go.
Offline Bouncing of VSTi Synths usually takes only a few Seconds – but Hardware Synths can only be bounced online.
MEAP gets a review in the German SOFTBEAT Magazine
MEAP ist ein Hilfsprogramm für die jeweiligen Versionen
3 bis 5 von Steinbergs Vorzeigeapplikationen
Cubase und Nuendo, das den automatischen Audioexport
von individuellen MIDI-Instrumenten und Audiospuren
ermöglicht. Damit erspart sich der Benutzer
deren zeitaufwändigen manuellen Export in einem
Projekt. Dies ist zum Beispiel praktisch, um alle Audiospuren
für die Weiterverwendung in einem anderen
Studio, für Remixe oder für das Stem-Mastering vorzubereiten.
OK – Why this is not available natively within Cubase or Nuendo is unbelievable but even if it was – There would be no way to change locators on each exported track – So when the time comes – I’m sticking with MEAP anyway.
I mean, it is just crazy setting it going and knowing it is doing all the work, while I go and watch the football… And I HATE football.
Exporting stems for a mix of the new TV Drama Series ‘Moiraia Feggaria’ which I am currently writing the music. MEAP – Multi Export Audio Pro makes it such a breeze. Thank you Phil Pendlebury for such an amazing application!
Hi Phil! Just would like to say a big thank you to put your effort on writing Meap.
It is indeed a big timesaver program.
I was so anxious when i tested first time that i forgot to check the settings! :)
But just after check the settings, about preferences keyboard shortcuts etc, on my daw (that “enable record on selected track stuff” and etc), it works pretty well.
I just wanted to drop a note and tell you how great MEAP is and to thank you for all your work on it. Common headaches and time consuming work arounds I’ve used for years have magically disappeared and my work flow has changed significantly for the better. Getting my stuff from Nuendo to protools stages has always been a source of anxiety.
Great Job Phil, Keep up the GREAT work! It was hard for me to accept MEAP at first. …what do I need this program for? But, now that I own it and am using it, I realize how great it is and how useful it is. I should have gotten it a long time ago :) Talk to you soon,
That’s too bad there isn’t a MEAP for old Sonar (or) old PC version of Logic.
The best way [to export a Cubase project to pro-tools] is to use MEAP to export all channels and all separate parts on those channels as audio, use the exported text file to put everything to the correct bars etc. Then you are set.
Check http://www.meap.biz/ for the MEAP application, I use it to get my Cubase tracks into Ableton Live for live manipulation and its great.
