Cubase 12 Pro and Transport Synchroniztion with Synfire Pro 2


Hello Friends,

I am running Cubase 12 Pro and Synfire Pro 2 (latest). With Cubase 12, we lost rewire.

What is the way to configure transport control between Cubase 12 and Synfire Pro 2 ?

Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance

I was looking into this a few weeks ago, and the word is that you will have to revert to Cubase 11 if you want to use ReWire.

I would welcome hearing about another solution if you find one, but I'm not getting my hopes up.

Without rewire support in the daw, you have to resort to virtual midi cables. These are built in on a mac but on windows you have to use something like loopbe. It is no longer sample accurate in timing but limited to the resolution of the midi clock. This was how synfire orginally had to link to a daw and midi cables have been used to drive external synths from a daw or even a master keyboard for an eternity.

Thank you. I am looking for instructions on how to do it with virtual midi cables. I do have loopbe on my machine (windows). If you have a link or set of instructions, kindly share the same. Thanks in advance
