Re: RME users: Is TotalMix a replacement for Control Rm?

I've got an RME Fireface 800. It is possible to setup a headphone mix in either application. I found it was a bit easier for me to use the control room functionality rather than TotalMix but YMMV.

I've since bought the personal mixers from Behringer (yes- I said Behringer!) and now use 14 outputs from the Fireface to a P16-I into the P16-Ms via sends within Cubase. It works great and lets the talent adjust their own mix to their liking.

Hope this helps,

Re: RME users: Is TotalMix a replacement for Control Rm?

There´s a difference between Totalmix and Totalmix FX, which has some more functionality concernicg CR features. and is very good for standalone use for example. Yet Cubase control room is more advanced. And if you´re working in Cubase, using its CR is more convenient than switching between Cubase and Totalmix FX

Re: RME users: Is TotalMix a replacement for Control Rm?

Yeah, TotalMix FX is my control room. I use RME UFX and I don't need to use Cubase's control room, it wouldn't add any extra functionality, just extra hassle. If you have a Steinberg interface, however, you're given an interesting level of integration. In that case I would totally use Cubase's control room (also because I'd have no alternative, since TotalMix FX only works with RME products.)

Re: RME users: Is TotalMix FX a replacement for Control Rm?

Yes, I too use TotalMix and not Control Room, partly because I love the basic volume / dim integration with the interface, and partly cos I do a lot of work in Pro Tools and other DAWs as well as Cubase, which would all require different solutions otherwise. It takes a while to get your head around, but its very flexible and, for basic operation day to day, quick and easy combined with the hardware.

Re: RME users: Is TotalMix FX a replacement for Control Rm?

CR and FF800 playing nicely together here.

For up to 4 phones mixes CR + ASIO direct monitoring enabled (you have to do it in TotalMix as well as in Cubase) is extremely convenient.

If you need more than that, TotalMix offers up to 14 independent stereo mixes (think UFX even 15) - more than will ever make sense, never used more than 6.

Looking for a while myself to get myself an UFX because of TotalMix FX. Making use of the UFX' FX would mean to use TotalMix FX instead of CR or using some kind of hybrid setting like cue sends from Cubase plus your singer with a little reverb or so from the Fireface via TotalMix.

Yes, TotalMix FX is not the most intuitive software ever designed, but neither is Control Room, for the record. Anyhow, both are not too hard to learn, given some time and patience. Like I said before, it all comes down to hardware integration. If you use an RME interface, Control Room basically gives you none at all, while TotalMix FX is completely integrated into your hardware. So, the choice is really an easy one.

Re: RME users: Is TotalMix FX a replacement for Control Rm?

Hey papi61 or any other TotalMix FX users:

At 13:45 on this TotalMix FX vid https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sCH3qVaLL-I they talk about the "Cue" button, but it is more of a complete solo button than an equivalent of the Cubase "Listen" button (the latter of course where the other tracks are not completely muted, but simply turned down some dB).

I thought the "Dim" button in the TotalMix FX Control Room might be the ticket, but apparently it only describes how much all the channels are dimmed when the Talkback Mic is active?

Can anyone point me to where I can learn about the TotalMix FX equivalent of the Cubase "Listen" button please?

Or if there's no "Listen" button equivalent on the TotalMix FX - as I really like that feature in the Cubase Control Room ... how crazy would it be to have the Cubase Control Room activated but everything disabled but "Listen", and use TotalMix FX for the rest of the control room functions?

Thanks -
You can´t use totalmixFX for "the rest of the control room functions", since Totalmix FX simply doesn´t have them.

Re: How can I just record some piano midi and let Cubase fol

(Ah I've just seen that Thinkingcap has written, in two lines, what I have just used an entire paragraph for :P )..

Is this the full version of Cubase? (I'm not sure if the following is available in Cubase Artist/Elements)..
Anyways..
1) Once you have recorded your MIDI Piano Part, set the MIDI/Instrument Track from Musical Timebase to Linear Timebase (in the MIDI/Instrument track's Inspector, click on the "quarter-note" icon to change it into a "clock" icon).
(This has the result that Cubase's Tempo Track can now be modified without changing what you actually hear )
2) If you had the Tempo in the Transport Bar set to "Fixed", change it to "Track".
3) If necessary, drag your MIDI Part, such that the first downbeat corresponds with the appropriate downbeat in Cubase's Grid (in the simplest case, that would be, align the first played note with the start of a bar.. it is in fact a good idea, generally, to let Cubase have a couple of bars "breathing space" before the music starts anyways ;) )

There are now two methods available in Cubase (like Thinkingcap said ;) ) ..
(the first is maybe simpler, but the 2nd is probably more thorough, especially if the music isn't particularly rhythmic, with obvious downbeats).

Method #1..
Open the Piano track's MIDI Part in the Key Editor, select the Timewarp Tool, and working through from left to right, drag the bar lines, such that they correspond with the downbeats of your music (like I said, earlier, this will change Cubase's Grid to fit the music, without changing what is actually heard ).

Method #2..
4) Create a new MIDI track, routed to some percussive/metronome sound, put it into Record, and "tap" along to your recorded Piano track, playing, normally, quarter-notes, just as if you were "conducting" the music (it becomes quite easy to do this once you've gotten the hang of it, especially seeing as it was you who played the piano part in the first place. And, in any case, seeing as this "tapping" is just a regular MIDI track, you can edit it afterwards until you are satisfied that it fits your music nicely).
5) Put this "tapping" track into Linear Timebase also.
[EDIT] 5b) HughH has discovered a bug with the next two steps, if you have created your "tapping" from a combination of several tracks, or several Lanes on the same track..
If this is your case, then merge (glue) your tapping into a single track before proceeding! [/EDIT]
6) Select the MIDI Part that contains your "tapping", and set the Left and Right Locators to its boundaries.
7) Go to the MIDI Menu>Functions>"Merge Tempo from Tapping", and, in the dialog that opens, set "Tapping" to 1/4 (if that is what you had tapped ;) ), and checkmark the option "Begin at Bar Start".

That should be it ;) (You can now put your tracks back to Musical Timebase, if you wish, so you can now modify Cubase's tempo if desired, and the music will follow).

It's actually easier than it reads, especially after having done it a few times;). Good luck :).

Just to be completely exhaustive ( :oops: :) ) ..
Both those methods work with recorded Audio also, provided that you also, before doing any of the above, go into the Audio Pool, and switch off "Musical Mode" for each of the Audio clips.

Re: Cubase 7.5 not compatible w/ Windows 8.1?

i was glad to do the upgrade. From 7 to 7.5 was not that expensive and you get a lot of new stuff.
Groove agent 4 is awesome by the way. And actually this seems to be a very stable upgrade. Working several weeks now with it and no crashes, not one error, no issues at all... On the forum there seem to be enough people who share this view. But a big difference with the release of version 7 initially. :-)
Another thing to notice: you're old installation remains so the old songs will boot up with the previous release so nothing gets impacted if you don't want to.

It might also be useful to drag the MIDI Parts (including your "tapping"), such that it starts on a Cubase bar start.. makes the job for Cubase a bit simpler ;). (and don't forget to put the "tapping" track into Linear Timebase too)

Re: Possible Noob Question: Tempo Change Click Count In?

I usually do it this way..
(lets say I want a 1 bar count-in before the start of the new tempo)..
I create a MIDI track, routed to a metronome sound, and record one bar of click during the first bar of the new tempo.
I then switch that MIDI track over to Linear Timebase, set Snap to "Events", then drag-copy that one bar click Part backwards, such that the end of the copied Part butts against the start of the original. (If necessary I can then delete the original, although I am more likely to want to keep it).

Re: Does JBridge work with UAD-1 card in PCI slot?

Hi together,

you can't use UAD-1 Plugs with 100% Functionality by using j-bridge. If you using uad 1 card together with j-bridge, you always can use and open only one plug in. That's it. But the good thing is, you can use uad 1 with the cubase bridge. There is no need in 64 bit cubase for j-bridge. Just put the powerd plugin dll. in steinberg vst folder and everything is good. There are absolutly no problems to use uad-1 with the cubase bridge. I have running two uad-1 cards in C6.07, 7.07 and 7.510. All is perfect.


Greets

Great to know, atarifalcon030, thanks!

Can you say - is it possible for the Cubase bridge to be active (for UAD-1) and JBridge (for other 32-bit plug-ins) to be active at the same time?

I've not used either yet ...





Absolut. Use the UAD Plugs via Cubase Bridge, and at the same time you can use other 32bit plugs via j-bridge as much as your computer can do. There is no limit. Again, you can use all at the same time.

Alexis yes that's how I run it at the moment. I use JBridge for 32 bit pluginns bridged to 64 bit and UAD1 through cubase bridge. I tried the JBridge with UAD for a couple of hours without success, so I rolled back as it was !

UAD 1 does however work in Cubase bridge but I thought I would be able to run more plugs at the same time on Jbridge bit with no success :-(

Re: Inexpensive home-use PC also for lightweight C7 use?

It depends on the audio interface as well. If you want to use the onboard soundcard it'll probably work using ASIO4all and a fairly high buffersize, but there's no way of knowing other than to test it.
If you want to use an external audio interface that shouldn't be a problem, but if it's firewire there may be issues with the chip used in the firewire controller.

Also, check the minimum required specs for Cubase and compare it to your PC of choice. They're pretty low though so I guess most desktop PC's bought today would suffice.

Re: Proposed new DAW ... any comments/suggestions appreciate

I think you could save some €30,- by picking a motherboard with H87 chipset instead of Z87, if you're not getting the 4570K version it won't overclock much anyway which is mainly what the Z87 is about as far as I know.

edit: just realised that if you're getting it prebuilt from ADK you may not have an option to pick a different mobo.

It looks fine otherwise, should be a great machine.

Re: Proposed new DAW ... any comments/suggestions appreciate

It's a good package, but let me give few observations (in order of importance):

NIC/Internet LinkSys WUSB6300 IEEE 802.11ac - Wi-Fi Adapter USB - 867 Mbps

Are you sure you want a WiFi net adapter. Every special extra hardware in DAW is unneccessary IMO.

Dual Head Video AMD-ATI Radeon 5450 1GB fanless 1DVI, 1VGA, 1 HDMI

Isn't onboard graphics enough? Then you must be a gamer. In that case at least Radeon 7750 fanless ... or even something more powerful, but then you have no fanless option.

Power Supply: 500W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS BRONZE Certiied Active PFC Pwr Supply

As you are (based on your choises) aiming for low-noise PC, how about fanless PSU?

OS Programs Drive: Seagate 500G 16Meg Sata 600 1 yr warranty ST500DM002

How about 250G SSD? Boots faster, launches programs faster, less noise, not that much more expensive.

Quieting/Xtra Cooling: ADK-ADK Quiet Case fans (2) 8DB Noctua

Again ... that option with acoustic treatment would make you PC even more quiet.

Processor: Intel- Core i5 4570 Haswell 3.2GHz Quad 6 meg cache NO HT

If you still have money left, get i7 4770

Re: Proposed new DAW ... any comments/suggestions appreciate

I have made the (for me) difficult decision to make this my general use home computer as well
I can see that. My studio PCs have always also been a general-purpose PCs ... and it hasn't been a problem to me ... just requires extra care when installing any software. But I always use wired ethernet instead of wireless, when possible (have some 100m/300ft of ethernet cables in my house). 2 reasons for this:
1. Every additional hardware/driver is a possible source of problems. So why not use motherboard's ethernet connection and a cable to connect to the router.
2. In the past I have had horrible DPC latency problems with numerous wireless devices. So I have decided: no single wireless device connected to my DAW, not even wireless keyboard or mouse, (unless it's DAW-specific device, like my Frotier Tranzport). Maybe this isn't a real problem in these days anymore, but I get paranoid whenever I hear the word "wireless".


I will ask them to look at dropping this for on-board graphics only. It might not be any savings to me to do so
It should save you $60

I will inquire about a fanless PSU ... thank you.
Should cost you extra $60 (compared to Corsair 500W)


I am not sure what you mean here: That I should look into the case PLUS some acoustic treatment? Or ...
This is standard option for ADK computers ... I don't know who is your dealer, but your proposed system is obviously a standard ADK setup:
http://www.adkproaudio.com/systems/viewsystem.cfm?recordid=134
(under "Quieting/ Xtra cooling" there).
It costs extra $100 (compared to your proposed "ADK Quiet Case fans" option)... so it's a bit expensive option, but in my opinion you can't spend too much for making your PC silent. I just built one couple of weeks ago and I'm really happy with the noise level (after spending quite a bit for that), but can't stop thinking: "I should have chosen that fanless PSU and more quiet case fans" (yes, I have acoustically treated case).

What is it that an i7 is better at ... higher track count, or is it more VSTi's?
Both and maybe also possible to use lower latency setting. As seen from ADK page (see link above) you can have i7 model 4771 for extra $112. To compare performance difference between 4570 & 4771 see:
http://www.cpubenchmark.net/high_end_cpus.html
In my opinion the difference is significant and well worth the extra money.

Re: 28M and C7.5.1 : "Comfort verb" in cans only (not record

The RevX has nothing to do with the FX position. The built-in HW DSP RevX is only for the monitor signal i.e. cannot be recorded (you have plugin RevX for track processing). Which mix is to be "hardwired" can be switched in the control panel.
Reverb can be rather demanding of processor power, so having this integrated in the DSP of the interface specifically for e.g. the artists monitor is very handy.

Re: 28M and C7.5.1 : "Comfort verb" in cans only (not record

Without going into the variations, and leaving the definition of what constitutes a "comfort verb" between you and your artist, I'll give a simple example as I usually use it.

For various reasons I use Mix 1 for my artist Cue (my cue sends in the mixer are routed to mix 1 in the Control room mixer. Also to be clear, I use mono inputs for the mics (although that's really neither here nor there).

In the UR Hardware Setup Window (I have this mapped to a Keycommand for convenience) on the reverb Routing tab, set the routing select to Mix 1L/R and set up the reverb according to your taste (Type, Time, Return level etc.)

The Phones 1 are hardwired to mix 1, so these automatically become the artist Phones - turn them up on the UR.
Adjust the amount of signal to send to the Reverb on the Hardware rack in the Cubase mixer console (bottom control).

I think that should cover it.

You can transfer your plugins from your UAD1 card to your UAD2 solo from your UA account and they should work just fine!.... unless you have Nigel of course which the UAD2 is unable to run...

The legacy versions you mention ALL come with 64Bit versions so if you transfer your plugs to your new account you should get the 64bit versions by default..... you've paid for the plugins already so as far as i'm aware you SHOULD be able to use them with the UAD2... the updated versions of the plugins you mention are completely different versions, i think you're getting the wrong end of the stick possibly here.....
i have the original UAD fairchild which runs on both the uad1 and uad2 platforms and that comes in 32 and 64bit flavours...... as do ALL UAD2 plugins...
so..... if you install BOTH cards in your current machine and assign them both to the same system in your UA account now or before you put it in your new rig, when you transfer the UAD2 to your new machine you'll be golden innit!!!! ;)

If you're still unsure why not contact UA support....

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 7.5.20

Unfortunately I have different resolutions/sizes on my screens, so that's why I haven't been able to try it that way.
Even that works. Use the bigger screen as #1, drag open the Cubase window over both screens starting from #1.
This will leave you with a bit of "uncharted territory" at the bottom of #2 if you have aligned them at the top.
Now set up your child windows so that they don't use that area, save as workspace, done. 8-)
Not perfectly elegant, but I've been doing this once for over a year, before I caved in and bought another screen matching the bigger one. Nowadays I only upgrade the main screens as a pair.
cheers,
Rhino

Re: MIDI notes recorded earlier than they sound

If you read the thread more carefully you would see that this is fixed in version 7.

Re: MIDI notes recorded earlier than they sound

I don't have C7 myself but I have read several reports that there is a new control on the track which allows you to enable/disable some extra delay compensation for the track.

I have read that it works, but I have not experienced this first hand.

I am using the C7.5.1 Trial and I can report that I was recording some MIDI playing and, even with the latency set pretty high, it still recorded the notes pretty accurately (within human error, IMO). On Cubase 6.5, I used to have to set the latency much lower to get an accurate MIDI recording.

Thanks!

I had ASIO Guard on. But, I believe ASIO guard does not touch tracks with the moniitor on (i.e. it considers them as having a real time input source).

Re: Merging audio tracks - where in manual?

One of the things I really want to learn in Cubase is how to combine one audio track with another so that I can jump in and out of good takes and end up with one, master, good take from, say, 4 or 5 takes.


I think you're talking about comping here. Here's one of the many videos which you might like:

Re: C7.5 - does unloading from the strip lower computer load

If it's an i7 rig or later or equivalent, I wouldn't worry too much about stressing your machine out under typical compositional / studio usage. I think you'll be rather pleased.

Re: Cubase iC Pro official video tutorial

Wha? I don't need a USB driver to connect my iPad or iPhone to my DAW.

Also, reading my other posts, I forgot to update my info. I DO NOT use an ad hoc network any longer. It was too much trouble connecting things. So, since my DAW is has a wifi connection, I simply use it. I have all programs setup to NOT update - and not connect automatically to anything - and this seems to work fine for me. True, while I record my computer is technically 'on line' but it is not actually on line, just on the home network. Which is where the SKI remote and iC Pro finds my DAW. It works great.

Just a Tip...

Use shortcut F8 (if you don´t use video much) for Control room mixer. Look at loudness meter, short term when using plugins like compressors etc. Ensure that db is the same. Most plugin raise volume. Do this as a habit.
F8 and the new Control Room is great! You dont have to open the mixer all the time this way. :-)

Re: Can someone please explain the "ASIO Latency Compensatio

If you perform a live recording on a VST instrument, you usually compensate the latency of the audio card by playing earlier. In consequence, the timestamps are recorded too early. If you activate the “ASIO Latency Compensation” button on the track list, all recorded events are moved by the current Latency setting.

Re: UR824 Cue Headphone Mixes

I figured it out. I was just confused by the reverb routing page. The return can go to all 4 mix busses, it just the send source that the check mark relates too.

Re: UR28M-Dedicated Windows for Cubase Series

The dspMixFx app has no influence on Cubase. I am fairly certain your problem was caused because the ASIO driver was not selected in Cubase which could have been caused by the UR28M not being turned on when Cubase was started or being turned off and back on while Cubase was running. This is important other wise if the unit is turned on after Cubase starts, you will have to re-select it in the control panel (and possibly need to remap it in vst connections) but the hardware racks may not be visible in the mixer.
To ensure you're set up correctly, turn the UR28M on prior to starting up Cubase.
In Cubase Device Setup go to VST Audio system and select the Yamaha Steinberg USB ASIO driver in the ASIO Driver pull down.
There will now be further choice for the Yamaha Steinberg USB ASIO under VST Audio System in the left pane. Click on this and you will be presented with all the ins and outs of the unit (most should be Active except possibly the S/PDIF ins and DAW outs). At the top of the right panel you will see Control Panel in which you can set your buffer size and sample rate.
After closing the Device Setup window, select Audio Harware setup from the Devices menu and you will see the window shown in the documentation in which you can make various HW adjustments.
Next step would be to open the VST Connections window and select or control the inputs and outputs.
Finally, in the mixer, ensure that racks are selected in the layout, that input channels are selected in channel types, and then hardware selected in Racks.
At the bottom of the hardware graphic in the rack you will see a headphone symbol and a bargraph. Clicking on either of these also opens the UR28M Hardware setup with the headphone select tab or reverb tab selected respectively.
Hope this helps.

Re: UR28M Outputs/Routing

So if I want to hook up a mono analog external fx unit can I use one of the 4 outputs on B and C while still monitoring the main mix output on A? I'm trying to do this but not sure how.

Yes. This will require you to set the unit into independent mode, sync or bind the sources (mix 1-3) to the outputs, and of course route the track to the specific mix L or R. You will also probably want to disengage link when setting independent mode in this case.
Binding the source to the outputs sounds complicated to explain but actually easy to do - when you're in independent mode, press output A then select mix 1, now press output B and select mix 2, finally press output C and select mix 3. From this point on use only the output selectors - do not touch the mix select button! You will see that as you switch between outputs, the correponding source will automatically switch between mixes. After this operation, the mix 1 pair are 'hardwired' (bound) to the output A pair, the mix 2 pair are 'hardwired' to the output B pair and similarly mix 3 to C.
You can now for example connect your monitors to outputs A(L/R) and your device to B(L). In the DAW route your tracks generally to the mix 1 bus and the track(s) being used as sends to your external device to mix 2 (L).
