Re: steinberg power scheme and cpu core parking ?

No...Steinberg power scheme does not disable core parking.

This requires an edit to the registry.....I guess if you found a utility to do this it is simply writing the registry changes for you.

Re: Cubase 7.5.20

you loose the multitimbral functionality. For each channel you need a different dll. I know there is a workaround for that, but my IQ isn't high enough to take that into account.

Not sure what you mean by this.

I'm a new VEPPER (v5) but I can use as many outputs as any VSTi provides with a single instance inside VEP5 (Kontakt, Play4, etc).
You click the little plus sign on the first output and another is created - from the same DLL.

Re: MIDI and VSTs

I don't know if it's possible in Artist, but it's certainly possible in Cubase.

1) Create the instruments you want to use as VST Instruments in the rack (NOT instrument tracks, as they will not work).
2) Create the MIDI track you want, with MIDI data on it.
3) Ensure that MIDI Sends is available in your inspector (right-click on it and tick it, if not)
4) Turn on Send #1, and set the output (which will start out as "not connected") to the first VST Instrument
5) Turn on Send #2, and set the output to the Second VST Instrument.

You should be good to go. You can, of course, send the "usual" output to a VST Instrument as well (or external MIDI or wherever), so you can have up to 5 instruments driven by the one track (original plus 4 sends)

Re: Activation issue

No need to send a support request. Just log into your MySteinberg account, click on your Cubase Elements 7, and you should see the "Software reactivation" button. You will need to provide your newly created Soft-eLicenser number (found in the eLCC).

Re: Some basic questions - i7 or Xeon E5?

It's an English site but very good, they do music specialist builds and their engineers are pretty efficient and communicative. They will be able to tell you the latest developments and qualities of recording machines.
One of the staff posts on the Sound on Sound forum as Peter Kaine if you need a quick reference.

Re: Not one '4-20' reference in the lounge today?

I know us Dutchies have this reputation but I've never tried it and never will.

@Roel: Oh sorry, ik zag een Nederlandse naam dus ik gokte het er maar op ;).

Re: a PLAYER version of cubase

As someone who has used Cubase live every weekend since SX3 a major YES!

But I doubt they will do that because there are just not enough of us to
make $$$ for 'SteinYamy'.

But never say never.

Re: Halion 5 performance issues

I think I've worked the cause at this end. Looks like a problem with teh Yamaha USB MIDI driver when more than 1 device is connected. I have an S90 and Motif-Rack-ES connected via USB to the PC, and this problem with Halion and the performance meter going off the scale only appears when I have the Motif device powered up, even though it is not used in the project.

Re: How do film composers deal with large DAW projects for f

Try the freeze method, it's fun ;) You can even re-freeze tracks that now have MIDI data on them in order to make them audio-only. It's great for large film templates.

I had an idea that might solve the VEP bussing issue for large projects -- and that would be to create one VEP instance *per instrument*, then have them all aggregated into one metaframe. But, not sure if this would be an inefficient way of working CPU-wise. I mostly use Kontakt, and there is now no penalty for multiple instances of Kontakt vs. multiple instruments in one instance - I wonder if VEP works the same way. Only one way to find out I guess ;)

Re: Build huge templates?

Hi All.

Back working on this issue. I eventually set up my 8DIO ADAGIO Strings Collection as trackpresets to try the modular idea I described in the initial post. It works OK. But I recently saw this video:

And became somewhat envious of the ease with which the composer is able to instantly choose articulations from his collection. Seems like a HUGE benefit to "the flow". But it means having a huge template. I recently doubled my ram to 28GB, so I am hoping that having a larger template is possible and I'm back to trying to figure this out.

I came across a few resources that others may find helpful.

A PDF tutorial (quite extensive) by Tobias Escher on setting up an orchestral template with VEPro:

An interesting tidbit on the ThinkSpace forum about a potential limitation in Cubase that adds time to loading large templates:

A cool idea on organizing a large template in cubase over on the Soundsonline forum:

Anyway, back on it. If anyone has suggestions, they are welcome. Thanks.

Re: One step past Instrument Freeze? Bounce to audio?

What you want to do is FILE>EXPORT>AUDIO MIXDOWN.
On the dialog, at top left, switch to "batch export" and select the instruments you want to bounce. At bottom under "import to project" choose "audio track" ("Pool" will auto select).
This will export any selected tracks, within the locator region, including any inserts and fader settings.
Use the naming conventions however you'd like to best be able to identify the tracks (this is where logical track naming shows its benefits!)
After its done, you'll have each instrument bounced to separate audio tracks. After making sure they sound how you like, you can delete the original VSTi tracks.

DONE. ;)

Re: Hidden Cubase 8 features!

I hope this isn't a duplicate. I jumped from 6.5 to 8 and so may have missed something, but I thought that Constrain Delay Compensation was a global feature, switching off plugins to reduce latency when recording. This is clearly described in the manual.

But what I didn't know is that CDC is available in individual instrument tracks - it is hidden by default and not mentioned in the manual unless I missed it. Presumably, it bypasses plugins just on the track and leaves other channels unchanged? Anybody else know any more?

List of musicians available for remote recordings

The idea behind VST Connect is interesting but it assumes you know some professionals available for remote recordings. So, I think it would be useful to collect somewhere a list of musicians available for remote recording and their fees.

For example, I wish to add real saxophone to a project I am working on, but I don't know any professional to arrange a VST Connect session with...that's why such a list would be handy.

Re: Are the recent failings by steinberg related to YAMAHA?

I've been using cubase since SX and recommending it to everyone i talk to for so many years. I do not recall them ever being this incompetent, flat out ignoring their own user base. I know that fairly recently they became owned by Yamaha but i haven't kept up with the details of it.

How long ago was the switch and do any of you feel like it might be related to what we are dealing with?


I've been using Cubase since SX as well and I don't see incompetence at Steinberg or see them ignoring their user base!

In fact, I see that one of the feature requests I made during 7.5 usage was even implemented in Pro 8 and makes my usage easier every day as a result - that's certainly not ignoring the users!

That being said, there's so many different usage scenarios of this product I personally feel they should be doing more during the BETA phase with the current user base. Allowing users to BETA new versions in order to maximize the bug identification or workflow issues before final release.
It's really quite easy to issue a time limited BETA license for a Beta Test version when using an eLicenser!
