I'm having some minor problems with VNC from the iPad, but it may simply be a learning curve problem. The Cubase remote works nicely from the iPad.
And then there are all the new plugins for Cubase. While Cubase 8 was downloading, I spent a lot of time running through the different plugins on a song from The Grim Roper. I think I've got something that works now. I'll run it by Gretchen later.
And I've updated Cubase and the Valhalla reverb plugins, so that's progress too.
