I just purchased Cubase 7 , and I'm eagerly awaiting it's arrival.
Around 13/14 years ago , I bought a Mackie D8b and a 24/96 HDR recorder , which in and of itself had it's own complete set of editing tools for manipulating audio tracks and automation.
This setup allowed me to never have to consider latency issues , or CPU usage , etc , etc. It was fairly simple with essential editing tools and most importantly , ...... it worked. ( until it died that is
Sooooooo , here I am. I'm going to use my old Mackie D8b as a controller , and I was told that Cubase uses MCU protocol , which makes it the best DAW to work with. I'm going to use an Allen and Heath ZedR16 as my interface thru firewire to an HP elitebook with an i7 2.30 Ghz and 32 Gb memory.
I'm not great with computers , and dread the initial setup , and the growing pains to come. I tried Logic around 3 or 4 years ago , and quickly gave up , finding it to be anything BUT "logical". I don't see where I have that option this time around , and I'm going to HAVE to make Cubase7 work.
Wish me luck. I'm sure everyone here will learn my name , while I frequently show up after pulling my hair out.
Internal routing , creating and monitoring tracks , etc...... I'm starting from scratch , and I'm feeling a bit of anxiety from it all. I'll be watching the tutorial videos. If anyone has any quick tips or words of encouragement , I'm all ears !
