Steinberg VST Transit Go takes mobile collaboration further
The world of music cloud collaboration is still relatively unexplored, however Steinberg VST Transit Go brings it to the masses.
Steinberg first introduced the VST Transit system a few years ago, and it brought the world of Cubase users much closer together.
The system uses a plugin hosted inside your DAW that connects to another user’s DAW via Cubase’s cloud-based server, and it allows you to record parts or collaborate directly within your DAW.
Now they’re taking it a step further by releasing a new mobile based application, Steinberg VST Transit Go, for iOS on the iPad.
The new app allows you to find collaborators all around the world and capture musical ideas with them from anywhere. When combined with Steinberg Cubase’s VST Transit system, it creates an unprecedented cloud-based service for transferring files and recordings to and from your device and DAW. It’s a great system for production duos who tour in separate locations and want to get ideas down on the road. And the best part, the mobile app is free!
Are there limitations to the storage or bandwidth?
Steinberg VST Transit Go comes with a starting package of 750mb and 1.5gb of monthly traffic – not bad for a free service, however if you want to upgrade then Steinberg do offer some “Premium” options. How the Premium service works is, you get upgraded to 7.5gb of storage space on the cloud, and 30gb of monthly traffic over either 3 months (€ 11.99 – Around R200) or over 12 months (€ 29.99 – Around R500) and furthermore you can top-up your traffic if you do run out, an extra 30gb will cost you € 4.49 (Around R100).
One thing to keep in mind, the Steinberg VST Transit Go mobile app is for iOS devices only, we are yet to hear of an Android version. We will keep you in the loop!
