Jochem talks about his procedure in the studio it’s a fascinating read.
When Seal decided to pay tribute to classic soul records, he turned to legendary producer David Foster — and his right-hand man, Jochem van der Saag, who was responsible for mixing and much more.
Jochem is an all round great guy and one of MEAP’s early adopters and supporters. We are very grateful for his kind words.
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.
This was an extremely difficult task, due to the nature of the way Cubase 10’s window structure works. I have been testing this and find it to be working OK.
There are some very important things to note. For example, the inspector must be hidden. This is because MEAP will be looking for SOLO buttons and may find the wrong button. (ie. it may find the one in the Inspector instead of the Track List).
Also the entire way that file names and paths are entered has changed drastically. For example, It is no longer possible to simply type your file name. You have to click first.
If anyone has any issues with this please do let me know via the usual channels.
Speeded up path and export button search (MEAP only needs to find the location once now and the coordinates are remembered)
Recompiled with latest compiler 14.5.4
A few minor issues fixed (typos)
Small tweaks and fixes / improvements
