Re: So 7.5 is here (almost)

I would like to see a decent and responsibility reply from Steinberg this time, with a special offer for that kind of users.... Otherways I will not upgrade anymore to any Steinberg software. I'm happy with C.6.5.5.

jj :D
Hi ufoqbase,

we do have an special offer for Cubase 7 customers, which is to update to 7.5 for €49.99 :)

yeah saw that, but some official word from SB would be good... ;-)

Re: So 7.5 is here (almost)

I think its a good update, but as usual its loaded with instruments, effects and a few workflow enhancements

i have always wondered why they can make these hugely complicated and wonderful instruments and other things and yet its impossible to get track coloring and moving tracks in the mixer?

i love 7, truly do but the mixer still just looks bad to me, i like what it does and i like what i brings but yo would think they could make it look better, and put some of these extras in like the above 2 i mentioned

track coloring all the way up
switch tracks in mixer?

you would thing they could code this before lunch

Re: So 7.5 is here (almost)

I was really excited about the LoopMash effect, i have been waiting for this type of effect, but really bummed it can only be used on an audio track. i wish they could have implemented it to work on midi as a master track effect, like sugarbytes stuff does, make it more convenient while you are still working on the song, and it's not a finished track yet.

Re: So 7.5 is here (almost)

I guess most of the folks using Cubase for more than occasional "beatz creation" would agree on the priorities you I don't understand the sentiment that people that write and arrange music have to be grouped and dumbed down that.

Without the musicians what exactly do you have?

All in all that sums up the situation nicely.
I guess most of the folks using Cubase for more than occasional "beatz creation" would agree on the priorities you mentioned.

It's like Cubase is the turkey that's never properly done, but instead of finishing to cook it, Steinberg just adds more and more gravy on top of it.

Here's an idea: instead of having multiple Cubase versions based on how much stuff comes included, how about multiple versions targeted at different kinds of customers? You know, like a version for sound engineers, with none of the "beatz" nonsense but great and solid FX and --most importantly-- a super-stable engine, or a version for film composers, which is also super-stable but offers professional scoring features (you know, like Finale and Sibelius), professional video features, professional syncing features etc. And then a version for the "beatzmakers", that can very likely be the most successful but that trades stability for more and more "gravy", like a ton of loops, a gazillion VST's etc.

I'm pretty sure I only use 10% tops of what comes included with Cubase (instruments, FX, loops --which I NEVER use-- etc.), but I'm still paying for it. Again, without "beatzmakers" who are you sound engineering for? This attitude and lack of respect would not get a dollar from me.

It’s the same thing every time an update is announced…

Compiled *witch* List

1. It should be free… free.. free.. free… I want it to be free… Everything should be free… free… free… Everything except me because, well, because…
2. I hate these new features…. hate… hate… hate… hate these new features… I’ll never use them and they suck anyway event though I’ve never used them and don’t know a thing about them…
3. I want the old mixer back… Give me the old mixer… Give me the old mixer… I hate the new mixer… hate… hate… hate…
4. There should be 500 different versions of Cubase… No, 1000 versions, no 100,000 versions. One made specially for me… me… me… me…
5. Cubase sucks and I hate so I’m switching to Reaper/Pro Tools/Logic/Garage Band/MS Word… Until next week when I download the update because I hate Reaper/Pro Tools/Logic/Garage Band/MS Word…
6. All software except Cubase is perfect… perfect… perfect… perfect… It all works exactly perfectly… It even works when I’m not using it… And its free free free… And I have my own version of it that they gave me for free… And did I mention its perfect?

Steinberg does a damn fine job of building ridiculously complex software which sells at a ridiculously low price.

I agree! If we had some free steak knives thrown into the bundle though....

Re: So 7.5 is here (almost)

There are a lot of people on this forum that assume that they are talking for the majority of Cubase users. We want this and we don’t want this.

Ok for the record, I don’t need my Cubase 7 fixed. I work a busy little studio, recording rock, pop, jazz and even electronic and my Cubase 7.06 is rock solid, it also works fine with my 3rd party plugins as long as they are 64bit.
One of my small worries about upgrading to 7.5 is how stable 7.06 is, but of course I will keep working 7 until 7.5 has been well tested in my set up.

Even if you have a Ph.D. please don’t assume that you know what a recording engineer wants from his DAW. Stops, glitches, electro drum loops are often requested in the production during a mixdown from paying customers. I’m quite pleased with the new toys in 7.5 and for only 49 euros bargain.

Who said anything about me being an engineer? I'm a classically-trained composer with a Ph.D. "beatzmakers" are DJ's, remixers, whatever you want to call them, but they don't actually make music, just rearrange someone else's loops.
I’m 54 and I’m not a DJ or beatzmaker as you put it but I know many as I do classical musicians and one is as skilled as the other. Do you realise how arrogant as well as ignorant that made you sound.

Anyway SB thank you for realising that we have a choice of which companies DAW we use and for (IMHO) being heads above the rest.

For me, this just by itself would be worth the cost of the upgrade. Drag n drop midi patterns back n forth from Groove Agent's new pattern sequencer (!!!) to Cubase's project page. Plus envelopes for pitch and filter (something I've been requesting for years). Good bye Battery, hello Goove Agent SE4!

Re: Groove Agent SE4

There are two things about GA4's design could've stood a bit more refinement.

The first is the ability to drag and drop audio files onto the pads from anywhere outside of Cubase. You can already drag and drop audio files from outside Cubase onto a audio Track. So why not skip that extra step (drag audio to Cubase > Drag audio part from Cubase to GA pad) and simply drag any audio file, from anywhere, directly onto a GA pad? (GA's predecessor, the LM-4II, was able to do this).

The second is why the designers persisted with what I consider to be the limited MPC-like 16 pad paradigm. This is a design originally forced by the production cost/real estate restrictions of physical hardware. GA4 is a software GUI….something that could easily be be made to dynamically resize to accommodate up to 128 pads at once, unrestricted by the 80's synth "banking" mentality.

I'd take the convenience of monitoring and pad selection in one go, over nostalgia, any day.

That said, even without these additons, this is still an excellent improvement over its predecessor.

Loopmash FX

I was very curious about Loopmash FX. If I read correctly here on the forum some people thought it only worked on audio(tracks) But that's not the case... it also works on midi/vst/group channels etc.

Automating the several effects is also very convenient.
Just add an automation track below your audio/instrument/group channel and you can draw a line to trigger the right effect in a group. You can choose Effect group 1 (tapestop/vinyl) Group 2 (stutter) etc... Then determine the height of the line to trigger the desired effect with all the way down set to bypass...

I'm very happy with loopmash. I don't like assigning extra midi to trigger effects like it works with Effectrix. I myself use stutter and tapestop a lot so perhaps Loopmash is a better vst for me. Still testing a bit so not sure about it ;)

Just wanted to let you know because I read a lot about it...

Re: Do you run HAlion Sonic and Halion 5 together ?

I just use H5 because I feel eventually I want the option to get surgical if I need to.

I actually am not sure how the 2 work together, I almost would prefer HS2 be a HALionOne type deal, even smaller footprint that just plays the H5 programs and takes on any QC/Macros that I add for it. Even something that I could 'detach' from H5, like set it all up, and rip off just the program and my selection of control parameters, into one little window that holds maybe 10 channels of audio.

As it is HS2 is too big to be an efficient workspace, might as well use H5. It should have not been separate but linked to H5 as a "holder" for my programs, but a small easy, space saving automatable holder.

I'm Bored: One -Really- Nice Thing About Cubase...

I dunno if 'threaded' is the correct word, but it's definitely FANTASTIC at letting you play back and work without interruption.

IOW: in every other type of audio, video, photo, text editor I've used, you have to stop playback during a surprising number of tasks. Cubase almost -never- requires one to stop auditioning.

You don't realise that until you work on other programs where stopping every time you want to add or edit something or modify a setting stops everything. I've come to take it so for granted and I -never- think to give SB credit but it's truly amazing.

I grouse a LOT about the UI but truthfully? If I had to choose between this capability and a more modern 'dockable' UI I'd choose this any day of the week.

IOW: if the price of a new UI would be losing this seamless playback under almost all circumstances I'd be strongly tempted to just stick with the current version.

For example, the ONE thing that drives me nuts about Adobe products, which I've written have a very nice UI, is that you have to -stop- all the time when you alter just about -anything-. But when I've groused about it on Adobe Forums the people are sincerely puzzled. They can't imagine being able to say, change an automation point without stopping playback. Something as simple as turning an effect on/off? Gotta stop playback. Because they've =never= had that ability it just doesn't seem to phase 'em. I tolerate it in CS because I only spend a few hours a week with it. But I'm having trouble imagining a DAW world with all those stops/starts.

Maybe competitors are better now, but I noticed that other DAWs I've tried over the years were not quite as 'always on' and if I had stuck with them it definitely would've started to grind. Maybe I've been living under a rock and this is now SOP, but I still find this pretty fantastic.

I dunno how it translates as a feature on a box... but it's worth noting from time to time. The core of Cubase is quite something.

Re: c7.5 is absolutely ROCK SOLID

The most stable Cubase I've had in years. I'm quite happy.

How stable is it? Really stable when you consider what it has to contend with.

Stable doesn't have to (and can never) mean "perfect." No DAW or any software is 100% free of bugs even when it controls 100% of the code. Cubase has to host all our beloved 3rd party plugins, from all parts of the globe, from all manner of software developers with their own level of expertise, skill and ways of coding. With multiple formats of those plugins, no less. In dual platform, no less. We won't even mention audio interfaces, drivers, or the OS and its layers, itself.

No technology service guarantees 100% up-time. Not even Tier 1 technology providers that get to enjoy multiple levels of redundancy, that a single computer does not.

Even the hardware is not 100% crash-free at a quantum physics level. Naturally occurring radiation and cosmic rays will statistically crash a computer with non error-correcting ram as much as once per month, per gigabyte (if left on).

For our modern computers, which many of us leave on for days at a time, with our non-server-grade, non-error-correcting memory (just about all of us here), this would translate into 32 times a month (for a system with 32 gigabytes), or about once a day, that we could statistically expect the computer to potentially crash, regardless of software ("potentially," because not all ram errors would result in a crash, but many do).

I've even had hardware sequencers lockup and require a power cycle.

A DAW would certainly be in a top ten list of the most sophisticated desktop software products created by humans. I put it at the top of that list, due to how many 3rd party programs it hosts and the real-time, latency-oriented nature of it.

So, yes, Cubase is pretty darn rock solid from where I sit. I'm in awe at how many plugins it juggles and how little it crashes.

iTunes crashes more than Cubase for me. Which gets funnier the more you think about it.

Re: Cubase 7.5.20

I bet we see a farewell to the legacy MDI window system and a complete revamp in v8.0. Just a hunch.

My guess is that it will continue to become more of a scalable UI, like the console is becoming, have full touch support and lots of flexible, dockable areas. Floating windows and z-order will still be present, but a focus on a more modern, z-order-less workflow will be the focus.
I look very forward to this !!! I really wish for more tight midi especially using VSTi to route midi signals and be tight for very fast beats

5.5.20 so good news.. thanks for listening to us SB!!!

:mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

ps I bet most of the fixes are related to Windows, but other wise 7.5 is so stable I cannot come here and compain too much cus busy mixing music><

Timing-wise, for audio, Cubase should be sample accurate at whatever sample rate it's running at and would null-test, no?

For MIDI, internally, it's something outrageously high like 1920 PPQN, since like the late 90's at least, I think. Automation, as well.

I think the only "timing" thing (not really a timing thing), and that plagues all modern DAWs, is the whole VSTs rendering slightly different each time, which is why a lot of producers bounce to audio (and why Cubase's missing "Bounce In Place" feature continues to be high on the wish list). This is an issue inherent with most plugins, themselves.

Describe more of your timing problems, I bet it's a non-cubase issue (DPC latency checker issue, perhaps). I bet it's VST multi-rendering (or freezing) phase issues.

Try printing those tracks to audio and I bet the issue goes away. Or, try triggering raw samples via MIDI without any effects, I bet it nulls consistently.

You still have not given more information about your system.

I was a teacher and I know that fixation with the things you don't like is a barrier to moving forward with your own development. Another DAW will give you different things to complain about and you will eventually build those faults into a deal breaker. For instance in Live you will be frustrated with the mixing and sound.....

Re: Why Does Cubase Ruin My Creativity Every Time?

It's opening older projects to find the windows all over the place and the mixer settings all wrong

Between workspaces and hotkeys for pulling up any window I might want, I guess I don't personally see an issue that's killing me here. Yes, improvements could be made, but I don't think it's been a deal breaker for the majority of us.

It's having to constantly reassign inputs outputs and especially external plugin settings because no presets

Again, my presets for inputs and outputs seem to load fine. Not sure what your getting at, but might be related to your specific setup?

It's putting up with "workarounds" instead of an elegant solution provided by the programmer

Non-specific and something you would have to do with any software package until any bug was fixed. But I know.... you don't see ANY problems or bugs in any of the other DAW's on the market...... go figure. :roll:

it's the focus on new features and vstis instead of fixing basic simple stuff, like no bounce in place

You can't fix something that hasn't been implemented yet...... Although I do hope it's added, macro's get you 9/10 of the way there currently. And just because you didn't benefit from an improved VSTi or any of the new features you might be referring to doesn't mean someone else didn't.

It's the MIXER being introduced and slowing down workflow by making single clicks into double clicks and pause-open

Totally subjective.... For myself, and according to what I have seen on the forums, for others as well, the new mixer was something that helped speed up the workflow. Could it be improved? Sure.... That's what updates are for.

It's lots of little things that add up to slow me down and wear down my patience, and I have a lot, I was using Cubase in 1996!

Great.... Again, it's a personal opinion and if you feel that way then that's fine..... Why the need to continue to let us know about it??? Some of us completely disagree with your assessment of the software.

But it's over now, I can't take any more, I have seen through Steinbergs game after all these years, they will never get it right because then no one will upgrade.

good luck to you if it's working well for you though, but I think you are viewing things through rose tinted glasses.
7.5 is slower than 5.5 and 6.5

Don't know why I bothered as this one pretty much says it all.... Yet you keep coming back to comment?!?!? Go figure :lol:

Your right, I am a fanboy of cubase. I personally love the software and have been an owner for decades. Why on earth would I feel bad about that decision. Do I have things I hope are fixed in the future? Of course....... And if for some reason I don't like the new version, I always have the older to fall back on. I have no regrets at all with cubase being my DAW of choice. Apparently, you have a different opinion. Why you continue to feel the need to tell us about it is a bit beyond me though. Unless your just looking for justification in your decision to move on?!?! In which case I would suggest a different forum. :D

Re: What is going on with Cubase 7?

First off. OBVIOUS INFORMATION for the unready. This is NOT the ISSUES forum. This is NOT the Steinberg SUPPORT desk. I suggest you visit one or the other if one is serious about having these "problems".

There is less wrong with Cubase than is wrong with the incompetent who can't get it to work like thousands of others can.
Who don't know how to complain properly or even where to complain and who mysteriously have a convenient amnesia when it comes to supplying any handy information that might help themselves like system details. Complaining here just makes you all look a bit foolish because this is a USER self-help forum. Do I have to say that s-l-o-w-l-y. A u-s-e-r selllffff hhhheeeellllppp foooorrroooom. It's not the forum where the sane moan for years and years about the SAME problem they had with the last 8 versions (that they were NEVER going to buy). The problem that bothers no one else because they have got a life.
And I have seen devs contributing here. I have seen problems addressed. I think these posts are cheeky and arrogant beyond belief. How would any of you like to be treated the same way by your "clientele"? The way so much "doesn't work" I can believe complaints about some studios must be numerous. Does one tell the "client" "Sorry but it's Cubase. It's awful!" ? :roll:
And it doesn't help with problems when helpful suggestions are brushed aside as irrelevant because they don't join in with the spurious complaint brigade.

What's going on with Cubase 7 is "not much". What's going on with some users that needs more urgent attention.
Nobody MADE any of us buy Cubase. So why buy all those latest, shiny new versions that you said you'd never bother buying from Steinberg EVER again? I'm as dim as a 40watt lightbulb and I can get Cubase working. Even Cubase 7.

So if anyone else has this issue then check your hyper thread settings in your Bios to stop yourself from falling into the idiot trap . ;-)

Good luck and peace ;-)

Re: Simple Audio Card Question


actually it is not really important which sound card one uses.

All you have to do (on windows at least... don't really know if this can be done on OSX) is to open the Windows Control Panel, click on "Sound", select your default device on Playback and click on Properties. Under "advanced" remove the check from the option "Allow applications to take exclusive control of this device" and that's it.

Then you will be able to have 2 televisions on quoting airflamesred.

Re: Splitting Chords notes into Individual Tracks ?

I know I -can- do it that way, but two things spring to mind:

1) In most parts it would be easier to do it manually by selection than it would be to cut them up and do that for each one

2) Are we really in a position where it's not possible to solve this kind of problem with clever coding? I'd have thought an intelligent/musically aware logical editor would have been a really useful tool for lots of people. It certainly would be for me, and I don't believe I'm alone in this. At present it has the potential to be an incredible tool, but only that. Yes, it's a great tool and I use it for a lot of tedious tasks to save a lot of boring editing, but it's pretty much the same as it was in the Atari era. Given all the other progress that's been made, surely this can move forward? Sibelius offers useful tools and the ability to extend it, why not Cubase?

Re: Iro: Track Color Pack for Cubase

And for those of you who aren't fully familiar with the colours section:

You can rename any of the colours by double clicking on them. So if you have a standard working practice for instance you could have the greens for "verse 1", reds for "intro" and so on. Lots of possibilities of how you can use the naming of colours. For instance if I have repeated midi loops in a project & I've edited one of them I may use a lighter red but have the colour named as "Variation 1".
Something for you to think about.

Re: Measure effect loop delay problems (RME UFX)

Any news on a fix for this? There are a LOT of people that really like the external FX options - and the ping function was excellent. Steinberg - please fix this as soon as possible... I am trying to use external FX, and the delay compensation is not working correctly. All too often, it reports a delay of 0ms, which I know is incorrect.

Re: Beat Designer Midi "IMPORT"???

Very interesting... i'll have to check that out. More research from the manual...
I have been spending a lot of time trying to work the Groove Agent SE pattern Bank into to workflow.
i have been importing the midi drum patterns directly into Groove agent, then dragging them on to the Piano roll... Making alterations then bouncing them back on to Groove agent on the free pattern pads... Very time consuming... It would be a lot faster if we could drag and drop directly on the Beat Designer...

Re: Anyway to import a section of audio part?

A workaround could be:

- Import the whole 10 minute file into the pool
- Create a track with it in the arranger
- Trim the part to the 5 seconds you need
- Use the function "Minimize file" in the pool to trim the audiofile

Re: Pro Tools Shortcuts - Trim Start, Trim End, Fade From St

I don't think you really need a left hand key for that in Cubase: With moving the lower corners of the audio event you trim, with moving the upper ones you fade. You can assign keys for special duties, for example I have one when I want to change trimming to time stretch mode.

Re: Copying Inserts and Pasting them??

It's easier if you know what you intend to do first. You can just select all the channels, link or Qlink them, then select and setup your insert (or other) effect and it will automatically do the same on all selected channels.

If you've already setup the effect in one channel, then select the other channels using alt click, then using the triangle pull down menu at the top rightmost corner of the mixer, select 'copy first channels settings', then again and this time select 'paste to selected channels'. This will however indeed copy all channels settings.

If as above you've already setup the effect in one channel, but you only want to copy the particular insert effect, then select the other channels using alt click and then link the channels. Select the effect on the second selected channel and it will also appear on all selected channels. now go to the first channel and activate the effects window. Because all channels are linked, if you just do a tiny tweek of each of the controls (turn a knob 1 increment higher or lower then return it to it's previous position) all the specific effects on all the other selected channels will spring to the same settings.

Don't forget to de-link afterwards

Re: How to find sample key?

Hi guys, can anyone tell me how do i find the key to a sample in cubase please?
Your question is ambiguous which is why you got two different answers.

Do you mean:

a) Pitch of a note of a sample? Then Centralmusic's suggestion is the answer.

b) Key of a sample of music? That is harder, but typically the key is what the ending note is, but only if the piece is not making a definite statement in its ending, which may be at odds with the sentiment of the rest of the piece.
To do a bit of nitpicking here; sachin22s question is not ambiguous. Your answer contributes to the confusion though. The "Key" always refers to the chord progression of a piece of music (which, technically, can be a single chord or a whole symphony). The pitch of a single note is always referred to as "Pitch".

Since sachin22 is asking for the "Key", he's asking for (b) not (a). Therefore, what he need is a polyphonic detection system. I believe that software versions are beginning to show up. But the most advanced polyphonic detection software still resides in the brain of a human musician.

Re: Programming groups in key editor

Well if you turn snap off you can draw in notes of any duration at any position. Then you could turn that into a quantize preset. After that you can just snap to that new preset.

Probably the easiest way to do this even leaves snap on. Make a one bar midi part and open it in the Key Editor. Enter a regular 16th note at the beginning of the measure. The default resolution is 120 ticks per 16th note, or 480 for a quarter note. So to fit 7 notes into a quarter it takes 480 / 7 = 68.57 ticks. Select the note you created and in the info line set its length to 69 ticks. Then hit ctrl-D six times to copy the note. Because of the fractional ticks the last note will be a few ticks too long. Drag its end so it snaps to the quarter note boundary, making it a bit short. Then select all the notes and duplicate them to fill out the measure. Use that midi part to create a quantize preset.

Alternatively you could have made the first note 68 ticks long and lengthened the last note a bit. You could also have distributed the extra or missing ticks between several notes. But that would be more work and your never going to notice that one of the notes is 3 ticks shorter than the rest.

This all sounds more difficult than it is. It took me about a minute to do it (including looking up the resolution in the manual) and about 10 minutes to write the explanation.

You can change the default resolution in Preferences/MIDI to something that divides evenly. But I wouldn't do that since it will likely create confusion in the future.

Cubase 7.5.30 . Fantastic! FOR THE PRO'S!

I just made the jump from Cubase 5 to Cubase 7.5.30 on mac OSX10.9.4 from 10.7, took advantage of the current sale
Brilliant! I am sure the sound is more defined even though the engine may be the same.
All my plugs, which are all legit and updated are working well.
Incredible actually, track versions and chord tracks are effortless.
I was impressed how seamless the update was , all my old sessions are fine.
I also have a motif xs rack which is WICKED within cubase 7.5.0, it is SOLID!
Any questions let me know.

WELL DONE STEINBERG! I am so relieved to have made the leap and to be rewarded by such a great DAW!

No functionality has been removed, yes I think it's very impressive and you might be confused.

Cubase and Digital Performer: the best sequencers at this place in the galaxy 8-)

In the past (in someone else's studio) I too loved working in DP.
In those days the main ax was the Mackie DB8 system with DP as
the studio 'B' app.

At that time DP was a very elegant and mature product,
and I am glad I learned it.

But these days it is Cubase and ProTools here;

Re: What Makes Nuendo @$1700 vs. Cubase @$500?

OK then. Her's a list of things in Nuendo, that is NOT in Cubase:

Feature comparison - C7 vs N6

- ADR-Taker Tool
- 64Bit support for Blackmagic and Decklink video cards
- new codecs
- AAF-exchange
- nice Pro Tools compatibility
- bounce-to-markerpoints
- clip-packages/groups
- enhanced automation system
- automation flexible passes technology
- direct stem routing/mixer
- Wave Meters
- Monitor Matrix
- additional post-production plugins, e.g. Nuendo post filter
- PitchDriver, realtime pitch plugin
- MXF audio support
- enhanced EuCon support
- EDL List im/export
- enhanced scrubbing engine
- complete network integration via LAN, WAN
- export Note pad data
- enhanced surround panner V5
- surround matrix decoder/encoder
- additional postpro IRs for REVerence
- enhanced crossfade editor...
- Multiple marker-tracks
- Two video tracks
- Batch Export/Multiple stems export by cycle markers with advanced naming
- Proper Edit mode
- Anymix Pro Surround Panner with upmix/downmix
- Video pull up/down
- Video overlay for text
- Auro 3D format support / up to 13.2 surround support
- Support for IOSONO SAW / Wavefield synthesis products
- ProSoundEffects 1.5 GB FX post-production library included
- extended synchronization/machine control options / Syncstation connection
- EBU-compliant measurement with Loudness Track

+ more exclusives coming with Nuendo 6.5:
- BASS management
- AAF 2.0
- ... more to be added...

For the Pro Post Studio, many things are doing the price difference unimportant. If they need it, the buy it (and the clients pay for it ;-)).

As one who has used both Cubase and Nuendo since SX1 and N1.6, I can for the first time see very clearly the bounderies between their Music app and Post app.
Finally has Steinberg's nagging about the "two different apps" come through to many users, with the difference between Cubase 7.5 and the upcoming Nuendo 6.5.

As a music only producer, the choice of going Cubase only is for the first time easy.
Because I don't like certain parts of Cubase 7/7.5 and Nuendo 6, Nuendo 5.5 will be my last version.
If Cubase 8 will "fix and/or change" the things nagging me, I will go Cubase only.

But yes there are many things in Nuendo that justifies the price difference, if............if you run a pro Post Studio. For pro Music studio's only (and/or hobby), Cubase is the way.
Finally I agree with Steinbergs statement on differentiating the two apps. Not so clearly in earlier versions.

Yeah, but apart from those things ...... what's the difference? ;)
