Re: So 7.5 is here (almost)

2) Did anyone confirm if 7.5 is compatible out of the gate with OSX 10.9 Mavericks? Or will we still need to run that extra little utility that Steinberg posted?
Product page says OS X 10.8/10.9 compatible:

4) Has there been a bugfix list released yet?
No. Steinberg support has said it may be posted upon 7.5's release.

Re: Mac Users Cubase 7.5 Performance?

7.5 is more stable here at lower latency.
Also 7.5 ASIO-Guard works as expected on my old iMac (7.0.6 ASIO-Guard was unusable).
As state by ASIO-Guard became sample accurate on 7.5.

Re: C7, Mavericks, MR816X


But... maybe I am wrong but this has always been like that, If I am not wrong I had this on Windows 7 as well.
Anyhow, a new driver for the MR for Mac to offer Mavericks compatibility is on its way.

THANK YOU STEINBERG!! Cubase 7 and Cubase 7.5 are amazing!!!

THANK YOU STEINBERG!! Cubase 7 and Cubase 7.5 are amazing!!!!
:D :D :D :D :) :) :) :) :!:

Overall, I must say Cubase 7 has been one of the best DAWs I have ever worked with thru all the years. And now, the new Cubase 7.5 hasn't exactly made it any worse. ;) :D

Extremely stable DAW on PC Windows 7 x64 Ultimate. Never ever crashed once!!!
I has never been so amazed over a DAW... ever. Cubase comes with so many great functions too!

I love the new scalable MIXER-view and new Control-room, new Track EQ with analyzer, just the "Meter section" alone cost more then Cubase 7. Meters like K-14, K-12, K-20, EBU-scale, DIN-scale etc.
Add of own ICONS add of own color customization is a wanted feature for years from many users and especially from me. "Dark arrange background". ;)

And the new hide channels visibility tabs in both track view and mixer view, nested maps, setup Mixer and arrangement configuration, latency compensation with external hardware is one of the great feature that actually work too and that I use daily in the studio. Some DAWs have it too but trust me, its not working properly as like in Cubase. After 2 or 3 of inserted hardware's you get latency problems. I have 4-6 hardware's in the loop all the time like hardware effects, hardware compressors and hardware synths etc. integrated in Cubase 7 and there are no extra latency problems and non stability issues. Cubase 7 take care of external hardware's perfectly, its just sweet! :)

The new instrument track in C7.5 is a right new direction and it work with multi VSTI's too even though you can take it even further and evolve the functionality. Be able to save and use "Quick controls" is one functions I use a lot. Cubase vast support of integrated with hardware controllers like CMC-controllers, AVID Artist series, Yamaha 02R96V2, SSL, NEVE etc. are great and a essential feature that work with Cubase 7 and Nuendo.

The new VST Connect are a another great feature that I use almost daily. I can go on...and on.... what can I say more then...WOW! :D ;)

Cubase 7.5 are a amazing product! :)

I have vast long experience thru the years with DAWs etc.. since the late 80ths. I have worked even with hardware sequencers "back and in the days" and with Cubase on Atari. I have also worked with Pro Tools HD, Logic PRO, SONAR X-series, Digital Performance and Samplitude. I can tell you, I have never been working with a more stable DAW then Cubase 7 x64 and Cubase 7.5 x64.

Thank you Steinberg and all the team and programmers that are behind this Premium product. Cubase 7.5 is the "real deal" and a Premium quality - "World class" product!!!

Merry Christmas to you all! :)

Best Regards

Re: Mac-osx to win7-64 bit migration

uarte, forget about the rantings of religious fanatics like papi61. They are impossible to convince. No matter what arguments are put forth. The best way to deal with them is if everyone chose to ignore them. They thrive on siring up controversy, and have no interest what so ever to contribute anything valuable.

It was nice to finally see someone putting forth a sensible argument regarding the "platform war". I agree with just about everything you said. I do believe you are wrong in one case though:

Performance is of course better on Windows
This is definitely untrue. Case in point, I recently did a series of test regarding the excruciatingly long loading times of projects with lots of VSTi's and mushrooming file sizes when saving, in CB7.5. All the reports were from Windows users and when I did the tests on my Mac, I got the flowing results.
Loading times:
The loading times are same on Windows and OSX. Neither performs better than the other.
File sizes:
The file sizes doubled. Nowhere near the 10x+ mushrooming reported by several Windows users. So, with this test OSX performed better than Windows.

This doesn't say that much in the whole scheme of things. If you were to make a thousand tests, you'd find that Windows outperforms OSX in some and that OSX outperforms Windows in others. None of this matter anyway.

The only thing that matters is how fast and easy you can work, and that has very little to with numbers and everything to do with what you feel comfortable using! Personally, if I'm forced to work in Windows, a task can take 3 to 4 (or even longer) times to perform compared to when I'm working in OSX. When I working in OSX, I feel that I'm working with the computer and in Windows, against the computer. That is simply because I'm used to OSX. I have friends that have the opposite view, but we still get along just fine.

So, to all you fanatics out there: Use the platform you feel comfortable with and don't bother your pretty little heads about what others are using. That's none of your business!

Why waste time ranting about something so useless, when you could use the time to make some good music instead. Or have you bought Cubase/Nuendo/WaveLab for some other reason?

Re: best duel xeon configuration for cubase 7.5

FWIW Steinberg inform me that there is no limit to the number of cores Cubase can use. In theory if you build a dual-12 core system, Cubase will see all 24 cores (48 cores with hyperthreading) and use all of them. Whether that will deliver the best performance is perhaps debatable, but word from the horses mouth is there are no limits, and apparently this has been the case since around Cubase 5.

Issue with obtaining Grace Period upgrade WL8.5

I followed the instructions on this link

it states....
WaveLab 8 activation before the official release of WaveLab 8.5.....
Start the eLicenser Control Center application, found under Start/Programs/eLicenser on a Windows PC or in the Applications folder of Mac OS X. Click on the "Maintenance" button. Your license will then be replaced by a WaveLab 8.5 license and the Steinberg Grace Period site will be opened.

Well the grace period website never opened.
So I went to this page.....
and had it check for my upgrade status. From there is showed me a download link.

hope this helps others!

OSX Yosemite and a concern.


I know you want to put you best foot forward, understanding public realations is key to a successful business and sometimes tricky to navigate. That said, what I also know that brings success is a good practice of transparency with your customer base. Their is no doubt you are all very talented in coding, and have along career in making great software. I do though have a concern with the forum moderation .

Cubase is broken in Yosemite for me and others, while for some it works. After the OS X Mavricks issues we all shared, I feel it would be a true benefit to work with end users fixing these problems before the new OS X retail hits the market and the end users cries foul. I would hope, from previous mis-fortunes, that this error of perception would be irraticated this round before the next OS X release.
Cubase 7.5.20 does not load in Yosemite 10.10, loads fine in OS X 10.93.

Wait? What is this all about?

"Steinberg Lounge
General discussions on songwriting, mixing, music business and other music related topics."

The Yosemite thread in lounge:

Our Yosemite OS X thread was placed here and honestly I was a bit put off by it. This is a pretty serious thread about possible problems and concerns, should we not share an open discussion about a better release this round? I feel this thread was not priortized at all and does not sit right just above threads "Football" , or everyones favorite, "Leave justin bieber alone" .

Internal acknowledgement is great, but please share something with concerned users. This is not just a step, but a giant leap into a better exchange of communication. Can we move this to the approate location to get the proirity it needs. The paying mac users base would really appreciate the good faith.

Best Regards,

PLEASE Steinberg, No Subscription Model For Cubendo, PLEASE!

Dear Steinberg,

Given the current subscription model trend adopted by companies like Adobe, Cakewalk and Avid, to name a few, I have become a little concerned that this subscription model virus may also reach the Yamaha/Steinberg headquarters. I personally love the way you've handled updates and upgrades ever since I started using Cubase in version 6, and would hate to see it change into a subscription model such as those implemented by the aforementioned software companies (or any type of subscription model, really). Not only do I find it one sided, benefitting mostly the company and screwing its userbase by striping us from the freedom of choosing when to upgrade or not, since we are forced into paying a fee each year in order to avoid more fees (at least in the case of Pro Tools 12). But you'll also be missing a great opportunity of taking over the industry by acquiring unhappy customers, especially those coming from Pro Tools, and becoming a bigger presence than you already are.

For this reason, I would love to hear confirmation that Yamaha/Steinberg will not be adopting a subscription model in the foreseeable future, if ever! Not only would this put me at ease, but I'm sure many others as well. There's lots of unhappy customers over at the Avid Forums, if you haven't been there in the past months. And now even more as of yesterday, with the release of Pro Tools 12, which offers 4 new features that are yet to be available. It is possibly the worst DAW release in history. This is the reason why I am asking this question today, which I hope you will answer. Thanks for being the great company you have been so far, despite what other people may say. We really have it good :-)

Re: Nuendo 7 at GDC 2015 & official Nuendo 7 trailer

I do not want to be repetitive :-) But Timo, do you have some teasing news for us or no?

All of us are hungry and positive to new release... but please do not test our patience so long ;-)

We are looking for new information - Estimation of release date, functions, video from trade shows?
