Re: Systemstabilität: MAC oder PC?

Es dürft der Intel Xeon E5-2697 v2 @ 2.70GHz sein ca. 2700 $ laut passmrk ist das der derzeit schnellste. Passmark 19125.
Der Intel Core i7-4960X @ 3.60GHz hat passmark 14300 und kostet 1049 $. Für 1800 $ bekommt man den Intel Xeon E5-2680 v2 @ 2.80GHz passmark 16622. So wie es aussieht geht ein bisschen Mehrleistung ins Geld.

Re: Systemstabilität: MAC oder PC?

sorry.. jetzt hab ich das erste mal so ein Teil neben einem Ram-Riegel gesehen... und... ehm... ich nehm ja an, der Ram-Riegel ist nicht überdimensional groß... demnach ist die Urne ja tatsächlich so groß, wie eine Urne :D
Konnts mir grad nicht verkneifen :) sieht witzig aus!
Da hast du Recht:
Ja, manche Fachleute sagen hinter vorgehaltener Hand, dass Apple das neue MacPro-Design tatsächlich von anderen Artikeln geklaut hat.

Nur finde ich die Preisgestaltung bei Apple für das neue "alte" Design des MacPro völlig übertrieben.
Selbst bei IKEA gibt´s das deutlich günstiger zu haben - gespart: über 3.000,- Euro (!)

Das neue Design scheint sich durchzusetzen, im Netz kursieren Gerüchte über einen MacPro-Nachfolger
mehr Speicher, Transportbügel, kein Strombedarf, deutlich günstiger:

Re: Mackie Control Fader Group Buttons in Cubase 7

yeah hughh, channel buttons are now page up down.
that makes sense.

that doesn't change the fact that most users dont use mainly channel left right, but fader bank left right.

the new mackie implementation is great otherwise.

that's why changing to the old mackie behavior isn't really an option.

Not sure you understand.
Using "shift" once with the Bank buttons makes them Bank buttons again - as you say most users want.
After that using Shift with the Bank buttons makes them - temporarily, I think - single channel buttons - if needed.

• Inserting hitpoints now works as expected.

• Audio return channels of instrument tracks are now always displayed correctly.
• Clicking on a MIDI region of an instrument track in an inactive project while holding the SHIFT key no longer leads to an unresponsive state of the application.
• Reselecting a drum map in setup window no longer renders the application unreliable.

• Scrolling in the Score Editor now works as expected.

• Switching between channel strip presets with different EQ positions no longer affects the bypass EQ state.
• Switching from a multi-display to a single monitor setup no longer changes the MixConsole window configuration.
• When using a Steinberg UR series interface and displaying the hardware rack in MixConsole, scrolling and zooming now works as expected.

• The complete plug-in set is now working as expected in Cubase Artist 7.5.

• All functions of a Mackie Control Universal involving the SHIFT button now work as expected.
• Using the configurations 1-8 on a Mackie Control Universal now work as expected.
• When switching tracks during recording, the Quick Controls now behave as expected when using a Mackie Control Universal.

Thanks for choosing Cubase!

Step-By-Step Guide for using the Remote Control Editor

Step-By-Step Guide for using the Remote Control Editor
to customize your own plugin parameter layout for the following hardware:

Mackie Control MCU
Mackie HUI
WK-Audio ID
Avid System 5 MC
Avid Artist Series
Yamaha DM2000
Yamaha NUAGE
Cm Motor Mix
Radikal SAC-2K
Steinberg Houston
and also any other third parties hardware system that supports Mackie Control Mode (or Protocol) in the plugin editting area/section .

It is assumed that by this point, you have set up your supported hardware controller well with Cubase/Nuendo, meaning that you have successfully connected your device with the DAW via the device setup menu for usual operation. For more details about how to set up your hardware with the DAW, please refer to the appropriate info/manual page accordingly, as this guide only covers some tips on how to bring the most out of your RCE for your VST plugin control experience on your hardware.

Ok, I will try my best to explain the topic as easy as possible here and hope that I won't be bringing the convoluted stuff this time, which I allegedly did ;-) In any case, if there's any unclear section, please feel free to ask or write me.

1. To make things simple and easy to understand, let's create an empty project with a single audio track. Then insert a VST plugin (let's say the MultibandCompressor plugin from the default Steinberg plugin set) into the 3rd slot of the insert section at the channel inspector, as an example.

2. Now, regardless of which hardware from the above list that you have, there is a standard and well-defined way to "browse" or go to the insert plugin section of the mentioned audio channel on your hardware controller (and I hope you know how to do this :-)). At this point, one should see 8 insert slots available for the instant access on the hardware, where the 3rd one has been loaded with the MultibandComp in our example.

3. Enter the plugin control layer of the 3rd slot (MultibandComp) by pressing the knobtop or any other corresponding function or page button dedicated for this (depending on the standard of your own HW), one should see that part of the multibandComp parameters are listed along the encoder knobs of your device, for instance, the top 8 encoders of the MCU device. Alright, up to this point, this is where/how we control those VST things since the HW integration introduced many years ago for the listed devices...
(Something worth mentioning here is that, such hardware-based focus-oriented workflow in different function layers like Channel EQ, Channel Inserts, Sends, etc are not available on the generic remotes in general, as it requires some extra MIDI specifications that are only offered by protocols such as Mackie Control, EuCon, etc)

4. For all VST plugins delivered by Steinberg, a well-thought layout of the underlying parameters has been predefined from factory, thus one should usually get the usable/important controls directly on the first page upon accomplishing step 3 above. But what if you have a 3rd-parties plugins or the pre-defined layout by Steinberg does not fit your actual use case or workflow? Let's say, the order or the naming of the MultibandComp parameters that you see on your hardware does not appear to be optimal enough...

5. Now, by staying at where you are on your hardware (the parameter control layer of MultibandComp, I will use MBC from now on). Open the so-called Remote Control Editor from the MBC plugin window via mouse (you usually only need to prepare once for each plugin if the param order is less satisfied )

6. If I'm not mistaken, you should see the following parameters order for Page 1 by default (from left to right, for 8 cells Standard Layout)
- Solo
- Output
- Bypass
- Threshold1
- Ratio1
- Attack1
- Release1
- MakeUp1

Now, you could...

Hide or Remove a particular parameter
1. Let's say you already have the insert slot bypass somewhere at the top layer... and the Bypass (delivered by default) is an unnecessary duplicate here that you would like to remove...
2. simply activate the "Learn mode" by clicking the "L" button near the top-right corner.
3. Then, click on the knob of the 3rd cell in page 1 (in this case the cell with the "Bypass" parameter) to get the focus on the corresponding knob encoder on the RCE GUI, one should see the blue line covering the GUI knob area indicating the focus. By pressing "Backspace" or "delete" at this point, one can remove the assignment of the current virtual HW control.
4. By pressing "Apply" button at the top-right corner of RCE, one should see the change applied immediately to your hardware... Meaning the physical knob encoder that previously controlling the "bypass" function is now empty/idle.

Rearrange a particular parameter (or the whole page)
1. One could also drag and drop a particular cell to replace (exchange or copy) it onto another cell in any page. Simply left-click on the empty area within a cell in RCE (that is any area outside the knob or switches GUI), while holding it and dragging it to your desired location of the targetted cell.

Tip1: by pressing "CTRL" or "Alt" during drag and drop operation, you gain the possibility in exchanging two cells or duplicating the same parameter onto another cell.
Tip2: One can do the same with the complete page by dragging and dropping the page body.
NOTE: this can be done in either both Learn mode or normal mode.

Rename a particular parameter
1. Let's say "Threshold1" is too long to fit in your MCU LED display.
2. On the RCE, double-click on the label part of the 4th cell of page 1 (namely the Threshold1 parameter cell) and name it as "Thd1" and confirm it with "Enter". Then click on the "Apply" button near the Top-Right corner of the RCE. Now, you should see that the name is updated accordingly on your MCU device's LED section too... (The same applies to all other supported HW)

Note: Depending on the availability of your HW, most devices only have one LED display for each knob encoder, while some high-end counterparts could provide up to three different length on different control sections, for instance, the Avid System5-MC. For the common case where you only have one single LED display for each knob encoder, please use the "Main Label" for the rename step.
Tip: The "Main Label" is also the top label you see on each cell block in the RCE page.

Define the LED ring behavior based on the parameter charateristic
1. Many listed HW supports various LED ring mode on each Knob encoder to indicate the functionality or characteristic of the corresponding Knob encoder (or the underlying parameter) more intuitively. For instance, one would usually expect the center-hooked gauge metering for a "Pan" parameter, while a left to right increment ring gauge for a "Gain" parameter, etc.
2. Depending on the availability of your HW, you can specifically define the LED ring behavior of each knob (cell) for better user experience on your HW. In practice, this does not change the behavior of the knob encoder itself but the look and feel of it.

Customize your own layout from scratch
1. Practically, it is also very convenient to redefine the whole layout right from scratch. Simply reset the whole thing via the "Reset All" button. Remove the excessive pages down to the last one.
2. Then, activate the Learn mode by pressing the "L" button
3. In learn mode, left click on the knob (or switch if applicable) of any cell to get the focus (blue line covering the control area), then go and click on the intended parameter switch or dial on your VST plugin GUI, one will assign the clicked parameter directly to the focused knob/switch in RCE.
4. Alternatively, one could also double-click on the corresponding cell knob (or switch) during the "Learn mode" to get a pop-up tree list for assigning the intended parameter similar to the channel quick control assignment workflow.

Another good example:
Let's say you only need the threshold and ratio parameters of each band but nothing else ever in your work, which in this case made up 8 parameters in total that you would like to use frequently.

Then, one could practically assign the pairs from each band onto the first page and remove the rest (assuming that the engineer never uses the rest of the parameter in the future ever again). In this case, one can assign the following parameters from left to right in page 1:
- Thres1
- Ratio1
- Thres2
- Ratio2
- Thres3
- Ratio3
- Thres4
- Ratio4

Then, remove the rest of the secondary pages (by pressing the "-" button near the edge of the page). Once done, press "Apply" and there you go.... the hardware will only provide the one and only page (a knob encoder row on the HW) with your most favorite parameters each time you access the plugin editting layer.

Important notes

1. Not to be confused with MIDI learn for the generic remote setup, the "Learn" mode in RCE is similar to the one in the channel quick control block, which allows you to learn and assign the VST plugin parameter under your mouse click to the focused knob or switch of any cell in RCE.

2. For choosing the right layout in RCE for your HW, please refer to this table:

Note that if your hardware controller is not listed on the table, but emulates Mackie Control mode that allows you to control insert strip and VST plugins from the surface. Please see your device as "Mackie Control device" and use the "Standard Layout" for your MC-compatible device.

3. Once you got the particular plugin editing layer active on your hardware. Any change made on the RCE for that particular plugin will be reflected on the fly to your hardware whenever "Apply" is triggered.

So, in general, you only have to set up once for each VST plugin that does not deliver a meaningful parameter order initially for the VST plugin editing on your HW.

Hope that this helps. Thanks!

Re: Thunderbolt

well the older dante cards don't include anything but routing.. and are limited.
the newer Nuage systems are pretty sweet when using the ENTIRE package..
with that said its very "niche" where personally Madi (RME in particular) is still the way to go for most.
we have seen a good number of products over the yrs and nothing has yet to touch madi.
I was doing 192 I/O live systems 9 yrs ago via madi.

I will say that the network protocol has finally come of age but its not really a cost saver when you get into high I/O counts.

the answer more depends on strictly live use and having to route multiple directions or studio use as well..

Re: C 7.5 tracks Presets::routing(midi,out) should be saved

in that case i would make a track preset called "guitar Reamped and foot control wahaha".
And maybe do another one: "foot control wahaha" to be used on a different instrument. Anyway ;)
With some limitation "file->export track archive" works this way so you might find it useful.
you can save groups and midi and audio channels(and the routing is saved), quite good (would be nicer to have folders to, but that's how it is)

So the save routing is implemented in the old (import /export archive ) just not in the new track presets :(

Regards :)

Re: UNDO for the mixer. Absolutely necessary!

I don´t know why there even is a debate if there should be undo or not, of course there should be a mixer undo.

The other day I accidentally included a lot of hidden tracks when q-linking some visible ones for a re-routing operation, all tracks was re-routed and it was a mess to get back to the original routings. I wished for a undo then. This cant be prevented by automating stuff.

Same thing if you accidently remove a plug in, no automation will help you there.

Re: UNDO for the mixer. Absolutely necessary!

Because it complicates matters. Just set auto-backup for every minute if you are making that many mistakes. I don't need it and I don't want it. It just adds things to the undo list I will never need.

Aaaaand again: it has nothing at all to do with "making that many mistakes". Come on, now.

If you read what people have been posting here, you will see very clearly that we're proposing a separate undo list for the mixer, or the ability to hide mixer undos from your main undo list. Then you'll never have to use it if you don't want to, and the very large majority of users who would want it will have it.

Man, forums are weird places. :D But I'm done here. I'll place my bets that Steinberg will at some point listen to the huge amount of requests for this over the years!
