New ways of mixing habits

I'm trying to get to grips with the new metering functions - especially the loudness meters.
In the "old days" I mixed so the peaks were -1-2 dB and loudness around 12-18 dB- depending on the material.
Now we have LUFS and LU and AES17 and recommended level is -23 LUFS.
If I mix a file that is -23 LUFS the peaks max at -10 and RMS at -20. Sounds much weaker than my old mixes.
And all the different meters scales - Digital, EBU,DIN, British, Nordic, K-20 etc.. - very confusing.. - what shall I aim for ?
I've been reading up on the subject but haven't found an "explanation for dummies" - including the Steinberg videos.
Can anyone direct me to where I can find easy to understand comparisons ?

Re: C7.0.6 mono to stereo plugin

For me it depends on what effect you're using or needing...

If it's specific for only the one track then use it as an insert, and in this case you need to create a new stereo track and copy the mono track to the stereo track (I think that's what you need because the track type e.g. stereo/mono/5.1 is fixed when you create the track...).

Or if you're using an ambient reverb type then you'd be better off with a send, and then you may well use it for other instruments, which'll help the track gel together too.

In terms of processing power, it makes no different using insert or send, but the point of sends is that you can route more than one track to the same effect, that can't be done using inserts of course because you'll use up your processing power by adding too many effects.

Re: Cubase IC Pro feature suggestions

Here's a request for a feature that would be extremely useful. A teleprompter feature!

Yes, there are separate teleprompter apps to download, but having it incorporated into iC Pro would have the great benefit that the text is synchronized with the project playback position. When the playback position changes, the text position adjusts accordingly.

Why limit it to text, by the way. Why not put the chord track to good use and let iC pro generate scrolling chord charts?

If Steinberg want's to really go "all in", it could even be synched with the Score features. Wouldn't it be useful if iC Pro could display a scrolling score? Again, locked to the playback position. Either for multiple instruments or for the instrument being recorded.

Re: Is there an easier way to rename markers?

Good to know about the reordering (thought I replied to that but I don't see it).

Yeah, while I'm a big fan of usability, I don't pay the bills with music anymore. I'm a professional software developer, so I have some sympathy for the lives of developers, who almost never get to make the call on what should go into the next release.

If it were up to the devs, we'd have the most kickass, fully featured, easy to use software on the planet.

It would also never ship. :)

7.5.30 opening projects+freezes

This is happening frequently since installing the latest 7.5.30 update.
After I close a project then try opening another using the menu, Cubase, all programs & my computer freeze up.

Can't close Cubase & have to restart my computer.

Anyone else, suggestions?

Re: Creating triplet notes

Yeah, man, no worries! Cubase is the godfather of MIDI sequencers. If you can think it, it can do it somehow. ;)

How to solo FX channels?

Yeah, man! Now you got an honest-to-goodness solo bus!

No, it's not obvious at all. Bad Design there.

In fact, I'm not too sure why Cubase doesn't switch over completely to the CR model... It's so much more powerful, and works much more intuitively like a mixing desk.

Re: Cool New Feature - color coded keyboard in Key Ed!

Many thanx for this tip !

This is amazing indeed and for me serves another purpose:

- Add Chord Track in Project Window.
- Disable "Automatic Scales" in the Chord Track Insprector.
- Create a Scale event in the Chord Track and set it to the scale you want.
- Open a midi part in the Key Editor and set Event Colors to "Chord Track"
- Now input some notes.
- Now transpose these notes; the notes become red if they are not in your chosen scale.
the notes become light blue if they are in the chosen scale.

So handy, thanx SB !! :D

Actually that behavior has been there since the Chord Track was introduced. Additionally the notes will be dark blue if they are in the current chord but not the scale. FYI you can also change these colors if you want by using "setup..." in the Event Color menu.
