WHY USE MEAP WHEN CUBASE 5 ALREADY HAS BATCH EXPORT?
Cubase 5's batch export is a great new addition to the Cubase family. And it is very convenient to have it built into the audio application. However, as it is at the moment you have the option to export your individual tracks but:
There are no options for locator settings. So all your files will be the same size from Left to Right locator, no matter what is on the track.
There is no option to export the individual parts from each track.
There are no advanced or custom file name settings.
There is no way to export marker sections.
There is no way to make a log file containing your export info.
There is no way to automatically save your project and shut down your DAW when the export is finished.
There is no way to export multitimbral VSTi tracks.
The above are just some of the reasons to continue using MEAP.
