Re: Thunderbolt

well the older dante cards don't include anything but routing.. and are limited.
the newer Nuage systems are pretty sweet when using the ENTIRE package..
with that said its very "niche" where personally Madi (RME in particular) is still the way to go for most.
we have seen a good number of products over the yrs and nothing has yet to touch madi.
I was doing 192 I/O live systems 9 yrs ago via madi.

I will say that the network protocol has finally come of age but its not really a cost saver when you get into high I/O counts.

the answer more depends on strictly live use and having to route multiple directions or studio use as well..

Re: why so many new versions so fast

I'm not a "pro" whatever the hell that might mean. Actually the use of that term is quite frankly meaningless. If you mean that you earn your entire living from recording the music/spoken word of others then you might have a point. However I suspect that many "pro's" stretch that point to a considerable degree.

For the sake of argument then, to be a professional would suggest a certain reliability. For instance if I went a Lawyer I would expect them to know the area of law they specialised in. Likewise a plumber should be able to do the job and cope with whatever problem is thrown at him. I would certainly be fed up if I went into a studio and had to wait for an engineer to sort out software problems. Taxi drivers have to drive cars that have a record of reliability. To use the latest update on a session is asking for trouble. You have to put the time in to troubleshoot the new version and not introduce it to your clients until you are 100% happy that you know what it can and can't do.
Things go wrong in a studio - it happens. But if it goes wrong because you have not done your research then that is on you.

I have done a session recently and it was clear that I knew more about Cubase than the engineer, but because he knew exactly what he was doing and how to use the hardware and software at his disposal he produced a lovely recording and his client was really happy. Also it was a pleasure for me to be playing and be able to concentrate upon what I was there for.

What does this have to do with the frequency of updates?

Well we all have to balance what we are going to get out of it. For me as someone who enjoys the process of creating music and the learning when it comes to software, am quite happy to take the risk. For "pros" to complain about the difficulties it entails and the professional consequences, then I would just say be more professional.

Re: Workspaces. How make them global for every project ?

Workspaces is ancient in computer years. ;)

When you are in the Organize Workspaces window, uncheck Show Project Presets so it says Workspace Presets (Global) above the right pane.

Select your presets in the left pane.

Click the > symbol to copy the presets to the right pane.

Now these will be available in all new projects.

I wish Steinberg will do it like Logic, Studio One 2 and Sonar X3 have. I mean no more workspaces (complicated), but one window with few buttons to view or not view inspector, editors, mediabay and mixconsole. Please, no. Anyway Logic does have workspaces, in addition to the single window interface you mentioned.

Re: One little feature question regarding 7.5.20

A mixer is a mixer, and should look like a ......................mixer
Except when Steinbergs designers design it, I guess. ;)

I think that Steinberg do listen to their customers, and we enjoy regular updates as a result. Someone has already posted a means of showing the meter and Control room mixer side by side which I found extremely helpful and is a very suitable solution to the OP's original query.

After 30 years of use, Cubase as it has become so much a part of my creative life that I have ceased to have an opinion about it. It just is. I invest in the upgrades and constantly discover new features that demonstrate to me that real care and thought has gone into its design over all of that time. And I know that the development team work tirelessly to improve its stability.

I often think there are a group of Cubase forum users who seem to spend their lives "testing" Cubase and howl with joy when they find a supposed problem that I will probably never experience. And you know what? I simply do not care about how this or that inconsequential bug hampers their "workflow" (God how I hate that meaningless word).

I think computers and musicians are not great fellows and a lot of the comment I see here is damning evidence that you cannot necessarily be good at both. Cubase is an incredibly complex programme which I am still learning after all these years. My sole advantage over some here is that I possess the necessary patience with it to get the end result that I want.

Re: Cubase iC Pro for Android available now!

The Nexus 7 has a screen size of about 7". Up to about 8" the smartphone version is displayed Surely it would make more sense if this was determined by screen resolution, and not physical size? The Nexus 7 2013 has a resolution of 1920x1200, yet there is only the smartphone display? Another way to look at it is, how many people have 7" smartphones, seriously?

This is a show-stopper for me. Can an option be added to force tablet display at least?

Re: Antsy for Eight - Feelings, Warm Fuzzies and Fears


So much so, that I'm about to purchase a backup motherboard of the exact same brand and model (so that Windows doesn't have to be reinstalled due to a different motherboard replacement, should this one fail).

btw. this is not needed-- i'm into my second motherboard (different chipset), different CPU, different GFX card, but the same windows 7 (that have been working flawlessly). there's a windows feature called sysprep that uninstalls all chipset-related drivers prior to switching up hardware. it's taken me about five minutes to move the system SSD into a new DAW, have it detect the new mobo and CPU and GPU and be up and running. (note: not raid-compatible.)

Re: download 'speed' SOLVED

I initially followed the DL link from the Asknet site. That DL was only 3.8GB.. I canceled that. Updated elicenser, upgraded my C7.5 license then went to My Steinberg/My Products and there is the full installer - 9.1GB. That DL speed is running at the slow end at 425KB/sec and as fast as 750KB/sec.. says 4hrs or so to DL..

Re: 4 significant Cubase 8 issues I'm seeing

If one is recording at low latency so they can monitor reasonably well without disconcerting delays ... but the backing track is at high latency ... I have a hard time picturing how one can record well, unless you can perform to a backing track that plays long after you hit your notes ...?

(Isn't that the reason that "Constrain Delay Compensation" exists ... to avoid added latency of some tracks that have VSTi's with long latency (so it's not crazy trying to record)?
Help! :)
Yes, that used to be kind of what the Delay Compensation did .. it was a way to record at low latency in a project that had high latency plugins.

So, 20 years later ....

There is enough memory and CPU available for the project to play ahead. Imagine an invisible cursor that has already played your song and loaded that into memory. When you click play, it looks like it is playing what is under the cursor, when in reality it is streaming stuff it wrote into memory awhile ago. To you it looks like it is just now playing ( the project cursor ), but to the project it is already playing 20ms or whatever ahead of you... you just don't hear it yet.

So, you click the monitor button ... it simply subtracts the extra buffers and adds to the stream at the correct location. I'm oversimplifying a bit I'm sure, but it isn't too far off of this. It also does take system resources to do the "look ahead" processing.

Instead of Constrain Delay removing the plugins from the path, the system now just reads the output into memory before YOUR cursor gets to the point you need to hear it.
