Re: Better than advertised

I have to agree.

I've come to realize that with every DAW release, there are some who will experience many bugs, some will have only a few bugs and some who won't have any at all.

And it seems that most, if not all software has the potential for some bugs anyway.

But this summer, I switched from Cakewalk Sonar X2 & Presonus Studio One and really like the surprises that were awaiting me in Cubase.

I don't regret my purchase at all - [full purchase]. It is the only DAW I use now.

It seems far ahead of the other 2 DAWs that I have.

And now the option to control it with just hand gestures using the new 'free' - I repeat 'free' software from Steinberg, when some of the others are just getting around to surface touch control, puts them way ahead!

Re: I really like revelation!

I really like it too... I normally use the Lexicon PCM plugins for artificial reverb but REVelation is terrific too... I especially like the gated drum presets as I still use lots of gated reverb on drums... Speaking of which, is Ronald Reagan still the US president and is Madonna still a virgin?
I'm not entirely sure Madonna ever was a virgin. :?

Looking forward to trying this reverb, especially after reading this thread.

Re: I JUST BOUGHT CUBASE 7!

Welcome rattleshock. Looks like you're a fellow Canadian.

I did the same thing earlier this summer - July 14.

I switched from Sonar X2a & Studio One to Cubase.

I bought 6.5 within the grace period to Cubase 7.0 right away and it included the full version of HALion 4 which gave me a free upgrade to HALion 5 also within it's own grace period.

A very pleasant surprise that I didn't even know was included until I opened the box.

Anyway, hope you enjoy it.

I'm adding a link here that's very helpful, in case you haven't seen it yet.

Re: I can't record further than bar 12

Have you checked the Project Setup dialog?

The default is quite long but perhaps it's set to something ridiculously short.

I usually set mine to about 7 minutes or so.

According to page 62 in the C7 manual:

General settings for the project are made in the Project Setup dialog. This is opened by selecting “Project Setup…” from the Project menu.

If the “Run Setup on Create New Project” option is activated in the Preferences dialog (General page), the Project Setup dialog will open automatically when you create a new project.

4th box down in the dialog - 'Length'.

Re: Creating a CD

As hard as this is to do, it's good advice that I myself should take whenever the time comes.
......................................................
... I always run my own tracks through someone else for the final touch. Simply because that person can still listen to the track objectively and fresh...
......................................................
... Firstly, if it were me I would have them properly mastered - even though I mix and master myself, I find I cannot master my own mixes as I am too close to the project & tend to revert back to multitracks & redo the mix rather than simply let it go & get on with it. Maybe it is just me but I honestly cannot find the objectivity to deal with my own work ...
......................................................
The reason I say it's hard, is because I'm involved in all aspects of the recording - from the initial song writing to arranging it, playing all the instruments and laying down the vocals.
Them trying and deciding on which VSTs to use, if any etc.

Finally mixing the whole thing down, only to hand it over to someone else.

Because by then, it's 'my baby' and yet it's like I'm handing it over to Family [Social] Services who supposedly will do better for it than I will. :roll:

And yet sometimes it just must be done.

Re: Tune Up Utilities

Hey Paul - what a drag!!!

For all your time & troubles, it's not totally in vain. You have convinced me never to do such a thing.

In fact if anything goes even remotely wrong like that, my mind starts drifting to: save & move some stuff, reformat the drive, & start from scratch.

Fresh installs may be a long drawn-out pain, but it's nice to start all over again with a clean controlled system.

It's also a good way to filter out many things that you no longer use or want installed.

What I now have is a hand written log with each step [software installation, driver installs, hardware connection points] along the way.

So now I don't even have to think what comes first & what comes next.

Re: Iro: Track Color Pack for Cubase

Seyoum has been extremely generous by sharing his knowledge with the community.........and I thank him!...
~ ~ ~
...Does anyone else want to share their colors, as well? Or possibly explain how it's done, so we can all jump in and help the community?

Sure, I'll chime back in, as I've done this myself.

I haven't altered any lately, so I have none to share that top what Seyoum has provided, but we can all continue either from using his or the stock ones.

1. In the toolbar at the very top, right click in the drop down menu and check 'Color Menu' [if not done already].

It will appear as a grey box with a small down arrow at the right of it.
[If you have 'Show Tips' selected in the 'General' section of the Preferences, it will show 'Select Colors' when you hover your mouse over it.]

2. Click on that down arrow & the drop down menu will display 'Default Color' [to click on to change the current track color], followed by all the colors currently available, followed by 'Project Colors...' down at the bottom.

3. Click 'Project Colors...' and it will expand.

4. If you click on any existing color, a color palette window opens whereby you can drag to a new shade or tone vs. the 'Current Color' and click 'New Color', and it will then be saved as is.

5. Otherwise, if you click on 'Options' at the bottom, another menu pops up.

6. Click 'Append New Color', and a white box named 'New Color' will be added at the bottom. [You could also click on 'Insert New Color Before Selection' to place it elsewhere.]

7. Click on the white box to shade it any color you like using the color palette.

8. Click 'New Color'.

9. Click to the right to rename it, ie: Piano, Guitar if you like color consistency between projects. That way you won't have to guess or remember what you used before. :?

10. Click to the right of the new name to continue on with others or click 'OK'.

*However, 'OK' only saves this for the current song [project].

So...instead,

11. Click 'Save Current Set As Program Defaults'.

One of the other options is 'Load Program Defaults To Current Set' to use with other projects.

It's a good idea to set up a song [project] template with this as well.

That should do it.

Re: Anybody has anything to say about NI Session Horns Pro

I got N I's Session Horns for $49 during the December sale, [not sure if that's a lighter version of Session Horns Pro or not], and at first I was a bit underwhelmed until I choose some of the different articulations & presets.

Then with a bit of different velocity playing variations, it really came alive for me. I wouldn't say it's my go-to horns library, [mainly because I'm not sure I can separate the instruments into solo modes], but I'm quite happy with it for $49.00, and have used it in a few songs now along side with Embertone's Sensual Sax - the 2 work excellent together!

My two go-to libraries for single Sax & Trumpet are Embertone's Sensual Sax & Chapman Trumpet, but I have just purchased 'The Saxophones' 4 pack from Sample Modeling, so it may take first place fairly soon.

http://embertone.com/instruments/sensualsax.php

http://embertone.com/instruments/chapman-trumpet.php

A steal at $20 & $30!

Too bad you missed out on the recent Fanfare deal from Musician's Friend for $29 - down from $400 [or something like that].

If you're not too concerned with price, some recommend Sample Modeling Products for the ultimate realism in sounds.

Re: Recording Midi (Volume?)

Hi Paul.

Just FYI, make sure you don't go crazy looking for the solution to this.

I've been noticing Cubase 7.5 clipping into the red at any given time. And I'm very vigilant about my levels.

I'll have a song of about 12 MIDI tacks driving some VSTs, and all of a sudden there will be crackles & pops & then nothing again for an indefinite amount of time. Upon playing the song again it'll be fine for any number of run-throughs.
[I've made sure that it isn't the fridge, freezer or A/C kickin' in & out when this happens.]

Often, the clicks that push the main levels into the red are not even audible, and yet they appear.

I know this doesn't come across as good news, nor as any type of helpful solution, but I just don't want you pullin' your hair out if you can't find a fix for it.

Know that at least one other is having similar issues. [We're not using the same audio interfaces.]

Re: Recording Midi (Volume?)

Hi Jamusic,

I've been noticing Cubase 7.5 clipping into the red at any given time. And I'm very vigilant about my levels.
Oh really? This is the AUDIO tracks you are referring to? (ie. you just leave the MIDI fader level at zero/default whist recording?).
Hey Paul,

Actually, I'll have adjusted the MIDI channel volumes up from zero by then. Perhaps that's what I'm doing that I shouldn't be. Otherwise, these are the Audio or rather the Instrument [Audio] outputs from the Vst's, for example Kontakt's outputs [assumed most likely to be the culprits] - but no actual Audio tracks in the songs yet.
I always start with my MIDI tracks first, then add my Audio tracks later.


Oh dear. That a shame for you and I know how much it really interferes with one's 'creativity'.

For me, it doesn't interfere that much. I just keep pluggin' away, since it comes & goes so quickly - and so sporadically.



Thanks for your reply. I am always open to ideas. I do hope you manage to get it sorted for yourself. Have you tried playing your projects on another PC?
I only have the one Windows 7 - all 64 bit PC that I built just as my dedicated DAW rig.
I put 16 Gigs of RAM into that puppy, as well as 3 SSD's, one 1 TB hard drive & two 1 TB external drives.

And she just hums along & purrs like a kitten! :) I've even been able to unplug 2 of it's 4 fans. Nice & cool & quiet - even with all 4 fans.

The last rig was just a dual core with only 4 Gigs RAM - 32 bit. It's now a separate house internet/office rig.


I see you are also on Win7(64). Which Interface do you have? Would using a super duper interface cure the issue do you think? Could this UR22 be something which is a substitute for the (my) CI2+, or is it a completely different device? :-

http://www.steinberg.net/en/products/audio_interfaces/ur_series/models/ur22.html

Actually, for myself, I'm already using what I think to be a super duper interface. It's a tc electronic SK 48. I've had it for about 5 years now and I love it.

http://www.tcelectronic.com/studio-konnekt-48/

I've had no issues with it when I ran Sonar X2a & Studio One Pro 2 on it, so I think that part of the equation's ok. I don't think my problem is with any physical equipment at all. I'm really quite good at getting that stuff hooked up, configured and working correctly.

For yourself, I think you couldn't go wrong withe UR22 or the UR44. I think they would integrate perfectly with Cubase, as designed.


I managed to download the v.8.3 Steinberg Interface drivers tonight. I have installed them on both PC's but not tried them out yet. I was only on v.7.3 and it said that the update was designed to fix Latency bugs amongst other things. It also prompted other automatic updates to my Steinberg software so I must have been quite behind.

Just a shot in the dark, but would RAM size help with this? I have 4BG in my Win7 and 8GB in my Win.8.1. Both RAM capacities can be doubled if so desired. :idea:

Best,

Paul

I think that upping the RAM is always a good idea and the cheapest & easiest one that always gets suggested first. Whenever I read on optimizing the computer for DAW work, I can't help but notice over & over again that the first suggestion always seems to be to start with cramming as much RAM as possible into the Motherboard.
My only regret, is that when choosing a Motherboard when I built this rig, I went with one that could only hold a max amount of 16 Gigs of RAM that I have in it now. It would be nice to have the room for more, if ever needed, although I really do have all the VSTs instruments, FX & libraries that I'll ever want or need by now.

8 Gigs might be enough for Windows 8 Paul, but 4 Gigs might not be enough for Windows 7.

Thanks Jamusic,

I have booked my Win7 PC in tomorrow for a RAM upgrade (from 4GB to 8) ! They said they need to order it in because the part is different for many PC's. Then they can get next day delivery. Its definitely worth a try as it could be (as you suggest) the cheapest cure.

I am not sure if I need to upgrade my Win8 as its on 8GB and seems to be ok. Is 16GB the next stage, or can you upgrade midway to 12?

ta,

Paul
I would agree with LB on this. The cost difference between 4 more vs. 8 more Gigs is not enough to deliberate on.

Plus you may have to pay almost twice if you do it in 2 stages.

For example:
Currently you have 8 gigs. If you pay for 4 sticks of 1 Gig each, it might cost you $60-80.00.

That'll give you 12 Gigs.

Then if you later decide you can & will go with 4 sticks of 2 Gigs each to bump up to a total of 16 Gigs for say $100-120, that first $60-80 will now be wasted.
And although you could sell those first 4 - 1 Gig sticks, RAM is so affordable these days, you'll get very little for them.

I'm sure if you ask 100 people about this, the 85 that are worth listening to will tell you that the 70 who actually know something about this will say just go for the 8 more Gigs [16 Gigs total] in one go, giving you more RAM and more savings in your pocket, not to mention the small hassle of doing it just once vs. twice!

Re: Recording Midi (Volume?)

Jamusic,

For yourself, I think you couldn't go wrong with UR22 or the UR44. I think they would integrate perfectly with Cubase, as designed.

Please bear with me ! So are these devices an interface (the SAME as my C12+) but with faster processing and more accuracy? Or is it that they are able to do more tasks of which are more controllable?

In other words, could the UR models solve my issues as well as giving me better recording quality? The C12+ came bundled with 'Cubase Artist 6' so do you think it is (somewhat) a cheap and entry level type?

I noticed the UR range has MIDI on it. Does this mean you can use it like a MidiSport 2x2 (which I have) or are the Midi terminals designed for a totally different purpose?

Really appreciate your help because I am still quite new to this game. Sorry to keep hopping topics (although they are all kind of related in some way).

Best,

Paul
Yes, the C12+ looks like an entry level device whereas the UR22 & UR44 are more of a professional grade. The MIDI in & out ports are intended be used like your MidiSport 2x2, but there'll be no A/B switching options, although you probably won't need that.
[You could always use both, if you ever find yourself switching MIDI cables a little too often, which can lead to troubles with them.]

As for 'Cubase Artist 6', virtually all DAW makers give their 'LE' [lite edition] versions with their interfaces now, in the hopes that you'll buy up, which almost all of us end up doing.

Re: Recording Midi (Volume?)



Hi Jamusic,

Cheers, that's REALLY helpful man! Excellent.

Ok, so I should think should about upgrading then. The videos on the UR's are very helpful. The two lower models are £120 and £284. The former does not require mains power but the latter does. Not sure why that is?

They are certainly more sophisticated than the C12+ and Steinberg emphasise its excellence in combatting Latency.

Extra Inputs and 2 x independent Headphone Outs sounds quite attractive. But I am not sure if I can justify spending that amount of money on the latter model.

So I could ignore the Midi terminals on the UR's and continue to use my MidiSport 2x2?

The CI2+ was great for getting me up and running as a newbie. As was Artist 6.

Ta,

Paul
You may be fine with the UR22 Paul, if it's just yourself recording at home and you don't see yourself ever recording more than 2 tracks at a time, whether those be one Stereo pair or 2 separate Mono tracks, such as guitar & vocal.

But having a quick look at the C12+ & the UR22, it might not be worth switching from one to the other. It seems that they're very similar.

The UR44 looks like it has some extra ins & outs and the extra headphone port, but if you're getting on with the C12+, you may not even need that either, especially if you might still use your MidiSport 2x2 as well.

You can definitely use your MidiSport 2 x 2 instead, although consider using them both if you do get a UR 22 or 44.

I use the MIDI In & Out ports on my TC SK48 main interface for my V-Drums, but I also have a Roland UM-550 MIDI only interface [no audio], offering 5 MIDI Ins & Outs, as the name implies for my 88 key Midi piano, sequencer and sound modules all to hook up to.

Like most DAWs, Cubase will recognize more than one MIDI device, if added/setup in the Devices>Setup section [I believe it is].

So the upgrade to the UR line [22/44] may not make all that much sense when looking at the over-all setup of Ins/Outs & MIDI ports of all 3 devices.
You may be just duplicating what you have already if you get a UR22 & still plan on using your MidiSport 2x2. Unless there's a major difference in sound, you might stick with what you've got [at least for now] and save some cash for other things - like some really neat VSTs :D .

Now you're talking!

That's what I have - 4 slots with 4 Gigs of identical RAM [same brand, same specs] in each slot = 16 Gigs, which I installed right from the start when I built my rig.

If you start adding on to your VST collection, [caution - very addictive, btw], you'll thank yourself down the road for going straight up to 16 Gigs right away.

Once that's done, you'll never to have to think about it again.

Hi,

Thanks for those suggestions.

Yes, I don't think there is much point in raising from the CI2+ to the UR22. But maybe to the UR44 as I might one day record multiple Inputs simultaneously. However, I don't think I am really at that stage yet (intellectually) with Cubase. Though this is something I would eventually like to learn.

I have a Nord Stage 88 Midi-ied to a Roland XV5050 module (which is what I use on commercial gigs) and still play a lot of my tracks into Cubase this way (so I often don't even any of the onboard VSTi's). And recently, I have been recording the Yamaha DX21 and DX7 so same comments apply. Therefore I NEED the MidiSport 2x2 and if anything, I would actually consider buying a larger MidiThru box (MidiSport 4x4) ! I was actually looking at this model on eBay (because MidiSport only has drivers up to Win7 and the Edirol caters for Win8.1) :-

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Roland-Edirol-UM-3EX-3-In-3-Out-USB-MIDI-Interface-Bus-Powered-/121334706842?pt=UK_Musical_AudioMIDI_Interfaces&hash=item1c401cb29a&autorefresh=true

The UR range has 1 x Midi In and Out and so I think that is why you are suggesting that I would still need to use the MidiSport even if I upgraded my soundcard.

Regarding the Latency/Audio Stream issues I discussed earlier, I will see how I get on with my Windows 7 and its recent double capacity of RAM.

Cheers.

Ta man. Do you think the Edirol its better than the MidiSport 2x2? It has the appropriate drivers for (64bit) Win7 and Win8.1. MidiSport has gone totally down the pan in this respect (and I even spoke to the manufactures recently who said that it is doubtful that they will update their softwares in this respect).

Is Edirol ROLAND :?:

Paul
Yes the 'rol' stands for Roland. Roland has been around for a long long time, and aren't going away anytime soon.
Another thing I like about them is that they will keep obsolete drivers available on their site, whereas not all companies do. Some try to get you to scrap your old stuff and buy their new releases.

I had heard something about MidiSport and their driver situation.

I've bought a few Roland items over the years and all of them are still being used & working fine.
For instance, my first one was a P-330 Piano Module and it's still going strong.
Never had a problem with it since 1990 - 24 years ago.

If you go with the bigger MIDISport, make sure you can get drivers for it first.

Also, whenever I can't decide between 2 or even 3 items, I just do a google search for users reviews.

For example: 'MidiSport 4 x 4 vs. Edirol UM 3x'.

Or in my case I did: Roland UM-550 vs. UM-880.

The user reviews will often reveal things that you won't find out anywhere else - like on the manufacture's site or promo brochures.

I've saved many a $ when just about to buy something, only to find out some small detail or two that turn out to be deal-breakers.

If it were me, I'd go the Roland way - based on previous purchases & personal experiences.

Re: Accidentally disabled interface

Hello,
...Also, as I am clearly over my head with trying to learn Cubase 7, do you have any suggestions on the best way to learn without putting myself through these accidental headaches? I know there's going to be a lot of trial and error along the way, but if you can recommend any DVDs or books that teach Cubase 7, I would deeply appreciate it. Thanks again!...
I just remembered that there's a site that will speed things up for you with a series of short videos that many watch.

[Short as in 4-15 minutes long each.]

Once there, you have 3 options:

1. Buy the videos outright and watch them where & when you want.
2. Pay $15.00 and watch everything on their site for a month.
3. Pay $150.00 and watch everything on their site for a year.
[$99.00 sale once in a while - usually at the end of the year.]

The Cubase 7 videos can easily be viewed in one sitting of 2-3 hours, or across a day or two [or at any pace you like].
Ideally, you would have Cubase up & running as you watch along and emulate what's being done & shown in the video[s] for hands on practice & visual on-screen results.

Then you could view the Cubase 7.5 ones if you choose to upgrade.

You can also find some things on Youtube as suggested above, although for the $15, I would go with Groove3 first, as they start with the basics and progress along logically & categorically.

So that's 73 videos almost 9 hours in total for just $15.00. :D
[You could easily watch them again & again within the one-month time frame.]

Hope this helps.

By the way, I commend you on your chosen desire of wanting to learn Cubase 7.
Some consider it to be one of the harder DAWs out there, although I find it easier than my first 2 DAWs.
It certainly has much to offer, although myself, I may never use some of the many options & features that it has but it's nice to know they're there if ever needed.

Feel free to ask more, if needed. ;)

Re: Accidentally disabled interface

You're very welcome! Glad to help.

Most, if not all of us from DAW to DAW started out knowing little to nothing at all.

In my case, I knew absolutely nothing about DAWS when I started with my first one - [not Cubase].

So many of us had to learn from scratch over time - often with help from others.

So don't hesitate to ask things. Usually a number of folks chime in to help out.

Just be prepared for the dreaded 'RTFM'.

Sometimes a stern 'RTFM' may be posted as a reply & come across as a tad 'unfriendly'.

No worries - it just like a dog bark - [instead of a bite]. :D
