Chapter 15. Rewire And Cubase > Stand-alone Versus ReWire Applications

Stand-alone Versus ReWire Applications

Many ReWire applications can be used either as stand-alone music-creation tools or as ReWire slaves. There are advantages to both, and the two methods are not mutually exclusive. Here are some pros and cons.

Stand-alone application

  • Usually, stand-alone applications can use ASIO drivers directly, making routing audio to and from external hardware easier than when using Cubase and ReWire.

  • Stand-alone applications may have some features that are unavailable when they're in ReWire slave mode. Live, for example, can use VST effects when the application is run alone, but it cannot use them when it's slaved via ReWire.

  • Switching between stand-alone applications can become tiresome.
