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. They then give me back consolidated WAV files which have the same starting points as my files.
Thanks for the download and for developing this piece of software which will allow me to focus more on the fun parts of writing music and less on exporting audio!
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.
Love it! Thank you. BD.
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. but with MEAP, I know the PT mixers will have the separation they need and flexibility they expect. I’m actually going to be delivering to some big league guys soon and I have been worrying about having to condense too much stuff to stems.. it would have taken me days to manually get all my stuff out the way MEAP can do it while I’m out to lunch … it’s so easy
Great Stuff! Hi Phil, I finally got round to using your app just as the new version (6.10.525) is released. …Lucky me. 8)
It’s working flawlessly and I’m delighted with it.
Thanks for all your effort
Thanks for the help, this will save me HOURS upon HOURS when converting old projects to my new DAW (studio one v2)
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 https://www.meap.biz/ for the MEAP application, I use it to get my Cubase tracks into Ableton Live for live manipulation and its great.
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!
Wow! Just wow!
That’s all I can say…. how Steiny was clueless enough to omit the kind of functionality MEAP provides I’ll never understand, but thank god for this little gem!!!
Having recently needed to export literally thousands of VO clips out of Cubase – MEAP saved my sanity (and my client’s budget!) big-time….
Phil… DUDE! YOU ROCK!!!
Thanks for your time, and your app . . . your program has given me back 6.5 hours of my time today alone!
