Re: Freezing an audio track stops sound

For a long time now I have had an issue where freeze produces silence.

Unfreezing and just doing it a 2nd time always (and I do mean always) works.

So perhaps the algorithm you selected has nothing to do with it....it's just that you are unfreezing and then freezing a 2nd time.

Re: horizontal locking

The Ctrl works as a lock unless you try to use it while also copying as Alt-Ctrl is the modifier for slip edit.

In preferences/tool modifiers you can find this under Select tool....if you change it to something else then Alt-Ctrl will work as you want it to......though you'll probably be sharing the slip edit modifier with something else now as there are too few modifier options.

Re: Shortcut for selecting which tracks to record?

There's probably a far neater way to do this but here is an option

Create a logical editor preset

Filter = Name/contains/xx
Action target = Track Operation/Record/Enable (or toggle if you want to disable too)

Save it as "Rec enable xx"

Create another preset

Filter = Name/Contains Not/xx
Action target = Track Operation/Record/Disable

Save it as "Rec enable xx2"

Open key commands, show macros and create a new macro....you then add a command to run each of the presets you just created...you will find them in the folder "Process Project Logical Editor" - Assign your Key command to this macro.

Hope that helps.

Ooops....almost forgot to mention....you need to add xx to the name for only those 2 tracks and make sure no other track contains xx....you could use anything you like to replace xx of course.

Re: How does bounce treat variaudio data ?

I would have expected the pitch to be rendered in tune according to the vari-audio data, and then the vari-audio graphics would be no longer there.
That´s how it actually does work.

This...works exactly as expected using "Bounce Selection" and "Replace" which I assume is what you meant....just checked it to confirm no bug has crept in recently.

you need to use Flatten Processing instead of bounce selection.

Well this does also do the job but you don't "need" to unless your bounce selection isn't working.....in which case you should probably investigate why that is.

Re: Any Tutorials on quantizing audio to audio free timing?

Doing this to a live show could easily make a phasey mess of everything unless you are only shifting d.I tracks or have near zero spill on the mics you are shifting.
A live show recording is supposed to be representative of the band playing live after all ;)

That aside my preferred way to do any fixing with free played audio is to first create a tempo map using time warp/warp grid. This way your grid follows the song tempo and you can use whichever quantise, warp or manual cut n slide techniques you like.

Re: Audio Export Mixdown [Issue]

Finally had a chance to check this myself and have exactly the same behaviour.

The problem is that when using the "Create New Project" tickbox any stereo files are inserted on mono tracks.

As you say importing into a new project works fine as does deleting the events in that project and dragging them back into the new project from the pool. It's just the initial mono/stereo recognition on import that is failing.

After un-installing I would delete any remaining program files/Steinberg folders (but leave vstplugins if you installed 3rd party ones already)

7.5 is a separate program, but I would never recommend updating a non working system.....you'll get really frustrated if it's some system incompatibility and you just spent half a day downloading the new version, spent £40 and still have the same problem

Re: Elements 7.5 external instruments

Yes of course you can do this if you have a midi interface with an output.
If you use the same keyboard as your controller then you'll need to switch "local off" in it's midi settings.

Cubase "External Instruments" is just a feature that I guess is trying to make hardware seem like a part of the software...it does not disallow the use of actual hardware external instruments in any way.
Just means they don't integrate in the same way as with full versions External Instruments set up.

Re: Warp Markers / Drum Editing

If timing isn't important then yes it sounds great, if timing matters then it currently sucks.
http://www.steinberg.net/forums/viewtopic.php?f=184&t=53611

Is there any way to drag a single hit a little earlier / later like in Logics Flex Time / Pro Tools?

No....another reason to stick with slicing which can sound very good with some practise and probably you'll find with very short xfades.

2. I tried to activate VST Bridge. Where can I find it? I have quite a few 32 bit Plugins I use every now and then, but I seriously can't figure out where this bit is hidden inside Cubase.

You don't need to figure out where it is or activate it....just point Cubase at your x86 plugs and it will try to bridge them...It just might work perfectly depending what plugs you're bridging but if not you might want to take a look at Jbridge.

Re: How to use third party VSTi's in cubase

Can anyone tell me what the proper folder location to install VSTi's and plugins is?

You might have 2 options when installing....let the program choose it's basic install folder and then when it asks for the vstplugins folder you should probably decide on one and install all vst2 to that folder (but multiple folders still works)
For 64bit this could be program files\vstplugins or program files\Steinberg\vstplugins but could be anywhere you choose. The important thing is you know where it is/they are and in plugin information this path/s is/are listed under the vst2 plugin folders tab.

If this is all correct and you still don't see the plug, from the start menu open Steinberg\Cubase (your version)\User settings data folder and check the VST2xBlacklist Cubase.xml (open with a text editor like notebook)
If it's listed, delete this xml completely and start Cubase again and it will try to scan again..if it keeps adding the plug to the blacklist there is a problem with compatibility.....are you using latest updates, is it 64bit compatible??

Re: How to implement Live/Realtime effects?

You have to route an input channel to an audio channel to be able to monitor it live so you might as well put the effects on the audio channel. (Unless you wanted to record that track with effects included)

Make sure direct monitoring is disabled in Devices\VST Audio System\Your soundcard - And click on the channel monitoring button (little speaker icon)

Of course you will be hearing the processed signal with any latency from your system so set your buffers as low as possible and avoid any plugins that introduce high latency (You can see how many samples of latency a plugin adds in the plugin information window

Re: Mastering EFX and Channel Batch Export...

The master fx will not be applied during channel batch export...if you export group a) drums that's all you get. Any effects that are inserted on master or later routed groups are excluded.

The only way to include these would be to solo each track and export the mixdown (not batch) one at a time.
And this way your effects would be reacting differently because only that track will be playing.

Oh...and even in channel batch export I don't think ALL tracks are playing....pretty sure they process one at a time.

Re: Cubase 7.07 Crashes on Mixdown 100%

Well briefly you would set up a new stereo output in vst connections....do not connect it to anything.

Then you will need to route your mix to this.....unfortunately you can't route the stereo out directly to it so you have to switch all the channels currently routed to stereo out to the new phantom out. (You can use shift alt to apply routing to all selected tracks)
If you have any master bus fx, you'll need to move these to the new output bus too.

Then you can just create a new Stereo track and set the new bus as it's input...arm record the track, hit record and let the song play through to the end.

If that one file is corrupted you will have lost your whole project.....in this case you can start working backwards through them until you find one that works.

Any advantages of fullscreen are currently outweighed by AOT bug....plugs will go behind mixer as soon as you click of them.

Re: Can I invert stereo for an instrument track? Cubase 7.5

Switch the channel to "Stereo combined Panner" and swap the L&R.

Or use an insert plug that has Stereo swap...For instance Stereo Channel http://sleepytimedsp.com/software/str-bundle/

Re: Elements 7 FX sends - How do I ?

Despite advice to the contrary I think you have an installation corruption....these areas should not be blank.

Re: XV5080 patch import

Just to make sure you got the right folder:

Go to your start menu/Cubase 7.5 (64bit if you are running 64 bit) folder and open the user Settings Data folder from there.
EDIT: Sorry...I see you're using Elements so obviously select the correct element version rather than Cubase 7.5.

The scripts/inactive/Roland folder inside of that is the one you want....you'll see all the scripts supplied with Cubase in there already. (Though that doesn't guarantee you're in the right folder as other versions or different bit versions appdata folders may exist)

Re: Small latency and Direct monitoring

I'm trying to reach some Zero latency

It is impossible to have zero latency monitoring via Cubase...or any other DAW.

Direct monitoring offers near zero latency....if you can't select it it is because your interface doesn't offer control of it to Cubase.

This doesn't mean you can't use direct monitoring but you need to set it in the Presonus software mixer and just don't activate the monitor button in Cubase.

Re: Groupchannels supersede FX-channels?

Is this pretty much it - FX channels are there for historic reasons, or?

If you are asking if they fullfil any role that groups can't also cover, then no, they don't.

What is meant by 8 FX send channels?

On an audio/instrument track/channel there are 8 sends. If you were to need more than 8 you would have to route to a group which of course would have a further 8.

The comparison chart "FX return channels" is that the number of those fx busses you can create in FX folder?

It is the max number of FX channels you can add to Cubase...Stereo or Mono makes no odds. 64 is max.

And I ask myself - can I live with these odd non-intuitive naming of what is to be my main tool working all days?
Serious doubts, I tell you.

If this is your greatest concern in choosing a DAW then I wonder if your mind is working a little differently to most :D

Do you have "Audio Hardware Setup" in the Cubase Devices menu??
This should open the panel where you can make some basic routing settings.

Now open the mixer and make sure input channels are visible.
Open the extended mixer view.
At top of fader section, right hand side is a small downwards arrow. Click on that and select "Hardware" from the drop down menu.

Re: Microkorg through mixer record issues, please help

When monitor is off cubase fails to pick up the synth

Well that's exactly what is supposed to happen.....with monitor on the input is monitored (live played synth). With monitor/record enable off you should be able to hear the recorded synth track.

The thing is that if you can hear the MPD track playing (or more accurately the instrument it has programmed) there is absolutely no reason you shouldn't hear the Audio track too. Record enable and Monitor button need to be off....everything else as already stated.

Re: Microkorg through mixer record issues, please help

OK...sounds like we're most of the way there.

From a quick look at the manual for that Xenyx I think this is the procedure.

1. Connect your speakers to Control Room Out rather than Main outs (if you haven't got them this way already)

2. On the mixer make sure the USB2 Phones/Control Room is pushed in/selected.

3. You should now be able to hear playback of instruments in Cubase and also your Korg playing live....but you can record the Korg without the other playback looping back.

4. In Cubase vst connections (F4)/input tab make sure you have a stereo input bus created. Assign this in the right hand column to the Xenyx Ins 1 & 2.

5. Create a Stereo audio track and assign the same bas as the input of this track (in the inspector or in the mixer/routing section)

6. Arm record for the track, hit the record transport button and go.

Re: Microkorg through mixer record issues, please help

OK...I think you're a bit confused about how this all fits together.

When you use the Behringer by selecting it in Cubase it becomes your computers soundcard....so of course you must have your speakers connected to it. You cannot use the Behringer for input (recording) while you use the PC built in audio for output(playback/record monitoring/vst instruments) the Behringer will be your ins and outs.

The MPD18 does not send any audio over USB only midi (note data).
You must be loading software that it plays....is this a vst instrument you are loading in Cubase??

Anyhow....with everything set up correctly you will also be able to hear this with the speakers connected to the Xenyx.

If you say which Xenyx you have I'll take a look and see if we can work it out.

Re: How to connect a mixer to an audio interface?

If you go with a basic Steinberg interface such as the UR22, you'll find it comes with Cubase Ai6 software included.
This will be fine for your needs and there is an upgrade path to other Cubase versions later on if you need more.

You can just remove the videoengine if you don't need it. Bit of a hack workaround but better than crashes.
In windows you just remove or rename videoengine dll from components folder...not too sure about Mac I'm afraid.

Re: How to turn off event sounds in Cubase 7.5?

Well I tried activating my virtual keyboard and couldn't replicate this so don't think that's the problem. But you could at least confirm if it's the same sound.
Right click on the transport panel (F2) and select virtual keyboard from the top area of that menu.
Now when you click on these virtual keys is it the same piano sound you hear?

If so all we need to do is work out how key actions are being converted to midi notes.

One thing....can you confirm it's doing this in a brand new project?

Re: UR44 - outboard effects routing

OK...so I ran through the process on my UR28M and as far as I can tell from the UR44 manual it will work exactly the same.
Follow exactly this procedure and if it doesn't work please explain where it goes wrong?

1. Turn Direct Monitoring off.
2. If it's active, I would suggest you disable Control Room (VST Connections Studio Tab) for now to keep this as simple as possible.

3. Make sure your cable is coming out of Line Output 3....you MUST NOT use line outs 1 or 2 as they mirror the main mix and would cause feedback. Plug the returning cable to input 3....The 3rd combo connector on front panel (could actually be any input but let's go with 3 to 3)

4. In VST Connections Outputs you'll obviously need a Stereo Bus set to UR44 Mix1 L&R for your monitoring. (Assumes you have monitors connected to outs 1/2)
5. Still in outputs add a Mono Bus set to UR44 Mix2 L
6. In inputs make sure you have a mono bus set to UR44 Analog in 3

7. On the track you want to be effected change it's output routing to Mix2 Out
8. Create a new mono audio track and set it's input as Mix 2 out
9. On the new audio track activate the monitoring button

That's it....this will play your track out through Mix 2 (Outs 3/4) which will then come back effected to the new track.
If you don't hear anything try removing the effects and patching a cable direct...does this work?
If it works through monitors but not headphones open the audio hardware panel for the UR44 and make sure headphone 1 has Mix 1 assigned.

Re: Audio Sounds Different within Cubase

If you imported a professional track into Cubase & it sounded good but in media player it sounded muffled then the problem is not with Cubase....It has to be with your windows sound settings or soundcard (built in audio presumably) software settings or media player settings.

Check if media player EQ is on
Check if there is any realtek software control panel with audio settings...any EQ or "enhancements"
Check Windows sound is set up correctly (Control Panel/Sound & Audio)

Re: Switching 32 to 64

- Is the 7/64 version gonna take over the the 6/32 version, and how about the 7/32?

You can install and run both versions on the same system without issue... They will not touch the C6 install either.

Can I run my old projects on the 64?

Yes you can.

- How about the vst and vsti plugins? I have a lot of plugins only in 32. Can I stil use them on a 64

Short answer yes....but it's not quite so black & white. Some 32bit plugs work with Cubase bridge, some may cause problems.
Jbridge is often recommended as an upgrade to Steinberg bridge and has a very high level of compatibility though there may still be a few things you cannot get working and some that take a few tweaks before they run well.
This is how I run my remaining 32bit only plugs.

What would you recommend me to do? I'm now running the installer and have to make a change to the 32-bit or 64 bit version button

I'm sure you can make up your own mind now you have the relevant info :)

Re: Automation playback delayed based on latency?

Question: does anyone know the least amount of time I could get away with moving those points, given that I am at 88.2 and 1024 buffer setting?

Any figure you get given may be right on the users system but that doesn't necessarily mean it will be the same on yours.

I would test it for yourself by automating mute or sudden volume change (no ramping) on a test signal (place the change exactly on a beat) and bouncing it down, then zoom in and see how far off the beat the bounced audio changes.
You can switch the ruler to samples or ms and then use that figure exactly to shift all your automation. (Or in the case of drum transients you could always add a little extra to be completely sure (as I also wouldn't trust the transient detection to always be exact)
