Re: Cubase 7 Wavelab 8 Link Broken ?

OS? If e.g. Windows 7 x64, then in "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Steinberg\Audio Export Post Process Scripts" you should see a file called "OpenInWaveLab8x64.aepp" which I assume gets installed alongside WaveLab 8. If this is present, Cubase will detect it as a post-export option.

Re: Recording Acoustic Guitar parts in C7

If I want to capture the feel of a tune on acoustic guitar I record it as it is ... not against a click track or anything else, the acoustic recording becomes the "master" as far as timing is concerned. If that's not good enough then accept reality -- it's simply not good enough, and you need to practice more. Nevertheless it is difficult to do everything perfectly on a single take, and what you might get away with live is often not acceptable on a recording.

Kwackman's suggestion above is a good workflow, but investigate "Working with Lanes" in the manual; I would suggest playing the piece through in several takes, and then using Lanes to comp the final track, rather than section by section, but you'll have to figure out something to use as a timing reference. As you're both performing and engineering the recording, this will actually be easier and more effective than if you were trying to direct a musician. It takes a little time to master, but it's well worth it.

Re: "POLL" Pay for 7.5 on the way for christmas

Should the question not be "How much would you be willing to pay for a Cubase 7.5 update, if anything?"

Re: Midi program change issue

There's probably a Program Change embedded in the MIDI files you're trying to import. You can use the List Editor to find these and delete them, but depending on your Cubase version, you may have the Logical Editor or Logical Presets (MIDI->Logical Presets->standard set 2->del patch changes).

Re: Chord Track

I would approach this slightly differently -- create a new MIDI track, set it to follow the Chord Track (Live Transform), and record your MIDI, and repeat for each additional voicing required. The MIDI input will be transformed to either the scale or chord events, and that way you can concentrate on phrasing and emphasis without worrying about "wrong" notes. You end up with harmony parts on separate MIDI tracks, but it may still need some editing to eliminate doubles etc.

If I understand correctly, the OP just wants to add MIDI harmony parts to an already-recorded MIDI melody line, with the harmony lines on separate MIDI tracks. In that case I would probably use a combination of the Chorder MIDI effect (possibly creating or modifying an existing preset) to generate the harmony and the Logical Editor to split the result onto separate tracks.

Another possibility would be to use MIDI sends, with the Chorder plugin as an insert. The main problem there is that it is not possible to select a MIDI track as the destination of the send, but it would work by looping a physical MIDI output back to the input, and recording that.

Finally, using the physical loop method above, you could play the existing MIDI track out and record it back in, but with the input track set to follow the Chord Track as above.

Yes I'd imagine it should be easier, and maybe I'm missing something here, but I suppose this is more in the realm of algorithmic composition, and there are other tools out there for that.

I have not found this to be the case (following your repro above), but well spotted! I was not aware of this behaviour in conjunction with Quick Controls.

Re: Restoring very old records

I suppose I could RTFM At the risk of appearing flippant, it is actually the best and definitive source of information .... but the key concept is this, from page 226 of the Elements manual:

Rendering Files
PROCEDURE
1.In the Master Section, make your settings.
2.On the bottom of the Master Section, click the Render button.
3.In the Render dialog, make your rendering settings.
4.When you have set up the rendering process, click OK.
RESULT
The file is rendered.

Assuming you have all the files you want to process already recorded, and you want to apply the same process to all of them, load the first one, select your plugins, get it sounding how you like it (this is step 1 above), then save your settings (per plugin*) and render. The "render" process is the part that, for a newcomer, is not at all obvious ... it's not like in Word, where you save the file; you can to that too, but to have the plugins in the master section actually change the original, it's "rendered" into a new file -- as fast as your computer can do it, as opposed to realtime.

Hope this helps!

*Note: I can't remember if Elements has an option to save the entire master section and all settings -- I have Elements on a laptop, I'll load it up later and check.

[EDIT] Yes, you can save and load master section presets in Elements as well, so basically all you have to do is set up your ideal processing chain, save a master section preset, and at the start of each session (assuming you won't be processing 2000 albums in one go!) load up that master section preset, load each file in turn and hit Render.

Re: Wavelab 8.0.3 and Magneto II

There's no "feature request" section in the forum for WaveLab, but PG (the developer) monitors these posts so I'm sure it has already been noted!

Re: Opening XG MIDI files with Yamaha S-YXG50 VSTi

Check in Preferences under MIDI/MIDI File/Import Options/Destination that it is set to "MIDI Tracks" and that "Auto-dissolve Format 0" is selected, that should load into individual tracks. XG files will have the correct Program Change embedded in each track. Set the output of each track to your VSTi.

Pity you don't still have the DB50XG .... it can be adapted to be an external MIDI expander with circuits like this . It's also possible to fit into the box of the Terratec DMX 6-Fire, an older PCI soundcard and the built-in synth in the Axon AX 100 is actually on a Waveblaster connector, so it's just a matter of exchanging it for a DB50XG.

I hadn't come across the S-YXG50 before, but I'd say it's pretty old software and I'm assuming it's only 32-bit, so I wouldn't care to test its stability on Windows 7 or 8 64-bit.

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?
