Re: So 7.5 is here (almost)

Fabio, this looks like hide the hands.... if Cubase 6.5 does not have these problems with all 3rd parts plugs, why Cubase 7 have it? I don't speak about the mixer horrible concept they gave us.... unusable, unreadable.
So we have to test all these plugs for Steinberg?

Nope, sorry. It is the 3rd party developers that need to test their software with Cubase, not the other way around.

We also do not have licenses or know all of the stuff out there. I'm gladly testing the ones I privately own licenses for and download demos of the problematic ones when I receive a report. But it is the plug-in which needs to be tested in Cubase, not the other way around. A host cannot be built around plug-ins.

Re: So 7.5 is here (almost)

Hey Fabio, thx for participating in the forum during your free days! would it be possible for you to confirm the US price for 7.5 and will it be taken off of the C8 upgrade? Thx ... I can't wait for 7.5!

Fixed that for you :lol:

I'm home and frankly, I don't know the US pricing.
In EU it is 49,99€ like C6 -> C6.5, should be the same for the US.
Sorry again for not being precise.

Re: Tips Tricks And Workflow Goodness.

Very nice tread!

Here is what helps my work flow and maybe will yours as well:

1. If working with plug ins mainly, I like to insert them on the input channel while tracking, this way the effect is being printed while recording and it will force me to COMMIT. There is beauty in it and when people reminisce about the "good old days" and how tape made everything sound magical, it is often an over looked factor. Committing and making final decisions right from the start, forces you to up your game. When the pressure is on, the performance tends to be better. If you know you can go back a million times and edit to death, that will not help the performance imho.

2. I try to leave as little as possible to the mix down stage to give the sound "muscle'" or to make it fit in right. By the time the song is arranged and tracked/edited. The very thought of having it to mix can be nauseating.

3. I try to avoid presets as much as possible. Generally I find them to be a huge waste of time.

4. I like to print reverbs to audio and mess with them for creative results. Mix and match, loop, reverse or having them in places where they did not originate can give a lot of character and create cool defects.

5. When writing, I like to put all my tracks into a folder track, so let's say I have 3 versions for the chorus, I can quickly move them around, AB, recycle parts, etc, by dragging just those few bars in place to hear it in the context. The arranger track can be used for that too, but I find it faster this way.

6. When editing vocals or instruments I like my final takes comped on a new track ( Id like to see something like beam part to master take in Cubase eventually. I think Pro Tools has it. Here is a simple macro that helps:

Edit - Copy
Edit -Paste at origin

Your selected take in the chosen lane will be copied to a new track as long it is highlighted in its place.

I apologize if any of this or all of it is too obvious.

Re: Tips Tricks And Workflow Goodness.

Here's an easy but pretty powerful one I just made up, been wanting to try that for weeks, always forgot about it :
Write a macro containing both "Bounce MIDI" and "Bounce" (audio), assign a key.
Works 100% transparent in C7, it bounces whatever you have highlighted, MIDI, audio or both ... *
Beats using the glue tool by a mile imho, ymmv.
For some weird reason it crashes 6.5 here though. :(
Go figure, I actually found a little detail that works faster in C7 ... :?

* No, stupid, it doesn't create a MIDI/audio hybrid. :roll:
Gotta leave something for next week. :P

Hi there,

thread is now closed.
I have warned to stay on topic.

@Steve Helstrip, we have tried to arrange a Teamviewer session with you and since then no response:


Best regards,

Re: (7.5) Mackie MCU protocol (channel shift doesn't work)

It's'a quick work-around:
Hold the shift button and switch channels pressing 'BANK'. Release shift and 'BANK' is as usual...

Customer Service!

I just bought a new Macbook Pro, and had some trouble getting the eLicenser and Activation Code to cooperate. Lindsay Warner at Steinberg Canada has gone over the top to help resolve the issue. Thorough, fast, and very helpful. I am very impressed, and will recommend Cubase and Wavelab to others based on this level of service. Bravo! Any others out there with similar experiences? :D

Re: Tips Tricks And Workflow Goodness.

Thanks for this excellent thread!

Maybe a bit off topic, but real time savers

- replace your HD with an SSD
- move to 64bit (W7, Cubase, plugins)
- say goodbye to any plugins that cause crashes
- use a wireless keyboard with key commands for recording (arm, rec, play/pause, go left, undo) so you have kind of remote control

Key commands have been mentioned already. If you have trouble remembering them, invent some system and make them somewhat failsafe. For example, my first level key commands are all non-destructive (mainly zoom an transport functions), so I won't accidentally delete an entire project by just hitting the wrong key. Shift is mainly for audio functions (like gain, pitch), and CTRL will mostly open editors. I always try to associate a word with the letter of the key, so it's not so hard to remember. Maybe not your preferred way, but I think you get the picture...

Re: Cubase 8 wishes

Nice, I like the vocalign idea.

For me it would be:

1-bounce in place
2- improved quick controls: macro controls like ableton live + some LFO modulation for all quick controls
3- multitrack freezing
4- colorcoding the entire channel in the mix console
5- a vst rack for effects with the list of all plugins used as inserts in the project, with a search engine to access them quickly

Re: Cubase 8 wishes

1. Instrument freezing with visible audiofile wave for editing. E.G. under midi instrument track appear wave track of freezed instrument. It would be VERY Helpfull ! ONE click and 6 tracks (for instans) in cubase work area ready for editing.

2. Very helpul for film composers and not only will be posibility of freezing each midi track separatelly even if we have 8 or more midi tracks from one instrument !!! But like now instrument tracks. It's mean that under freezed instrument track I can open automation tracks and edit them.
