Will Cubase elements 7.5 come out soon?

Hi folks,

Just downloaded the trial of Cubase 7 elements and having a look at it. Just wondering as 7.5 in the other version are out, does it generally follow that 7.5 in elements will be out soon and maybe better for me to wait a short time for it?

I won't be doing any massive big projects so your thoughts appreciated if elements would suit me, and if I would be missing any substantial features compared to artist or the main Cubase program?

To be honest I will mainly be importing sample audio files from another program and adding a little guitar and vocals.

Thanks for your kind help.

Joe

True, SX and Nuendo are based on Cubase for SGI IRIX that was shipped in 1997 and then ported to the Mac and a little later the PC (around 2000).

(UPDATED): Cubase / Cubase Artist 7.0.7 maint. update coming

Dear Cubase 7 users,

As we have done in the past, we will release a final free maintenance update to the previous major version of Cubase and Cubase Artist. Therefore I'm happy to announce the 7.0.7 maintenance update for Cubase 7 / Cubase Artist 7, which will be released on February 4, 2014.

This update will see many of the issues resolved which were addressed during the Cubase 7.5 development cycle:

Global
• When opening a file selector dialog the mouse wheel always works as expected.
• Switching the ASIO driver no longer leads to unexpected behavior.
• (OS X 10.9): All non-modal windows are displayed correctly.

Project
• Projects created in Cubase 7.5.x that use the new TrackVersions feature are fully compatible with 7.0.7..
• When opening a project, locked tempo / signature tracks are now restored correctly.
• When using the Browse button in the Add Audio Track window, the Result (Previewer) part of the window is always displayed.

MixConsole
• The layout of MixConsole no longer misaligns when switching from a multi-display setup to a system with only one display.
• Setting the zone visibility of the input/output channels now works as expected.
• Hiding the EQ section in the Channel Settings window now works as expected.
• Using Control+Shift+arrows in MixConsole for changing levels now works as expected.
• The context menu on the channel strip module knobs and in the fader area of MixConsole now works as expected.
• Loading a second project with MixConsole opened in full-screen mode no longer renders the application unreliable.
• When using knob mode for the EQ section in the Channel Settings windows, the phase rerverse button is always visible.
• Loading an FX chain preset no longer renders the application unreliable.
• Changing channels with the cursor keys in the hardware rack of MixConsole no longer leads to an unresponsive state of the application.

Plug-in
• The gain reduction meters of the Maximizer works as expected.
• Copying a REVerence instance to another channel or copying a channel which contains a REVerence instance no longer leads to performance issues.
• (OS X 10.9): Using VST Connect no longer leads to an unsreponsive state of the application.
• Using REVerence (or Roomworks) and bypassing it, then moving to a section in the project without audio and disabling bypass for REVerence no longer leads to unwanted playback of a buffered reverb tail.

Audio
• Emptying trash in the Audio Pool now works without issues.

MIDI
• Playing back a MIDI track containing lyrics events to an external MIDI device no longer leads to an unresponsive state of the application.
• Dragging an event up/down with the mouse in the Key Editor always leads to accurate audio preview.
• Resizing the controller lane in the Key Editor now works as expected.
• Import a MIDI file with the preference set to "Destination: Instrument Tracks" no longer leads to an unresponsive state of the application.

Score
• Using the bottom scroll bar to navigate horizontally in the Score Editor no longer leads to an unresponsive state of the application.
• Printing to PDF from Score Editor and replacing an existing PDF file no longer lead to an unresponsive state of the application.
• Printing from the Score Editor in Cubase Artist / Elements / AI and LE now works as expected.
• Toggling between the vertical and the horizontal position of a symbol palette in the Score Editor no longer leads to an unresponsive state of the application.
• Activating "Animate Note Cursor" in the Score Editor preferences no longer leads to an invisible note tool without preview capability.

Hardware
• When using an MR816 the hardware rack is always available from the drop down list.
• Changing the Digital I/O mode setting of MR 816 in the Control Panel or Audio Hardware Setup no longer renders the application unreliable.


Thanks for choosing Cubase!

Re: 64-bit success!

@Steve Helstrip
Glad you made the switch and that things are finally working for you but.....what took you so long when there was always JBride, which works flawlessly?!

Well, mainly because I didn't know that 64-bit Cubase would be more stable. I just tried it out of desperation more than anything else! I also thought Jbridge was PC only, but guess not!

Re: Why 7.5 and 7.5.1 is not called beta?

if the problems are listed on the new update bug fixes list is because they exist and will be solved now.
Maybe i wasn't lucky with my system which is OSx Lion running cubase 32 bit. I felt many of the solo(mute bugs) in instruments and folder and also many others bugs which i consider not so big issues. Anyway this is an experience that i had and i think i'll never update so early again seduced by the new features.

Re: Move MIDI notes from one part to another & preserve loca

I have never used v7 as I jumped right to v7.5 but unless I am not understanding you, just highlight the notes you want from the Glock, go to EDIT and COPY. Then click on the Celeste track and go to EDIT, Functions and click PASTE AT ORIGIN.

That's how I get notes to other tracks and they are exactly in the same location as the original location.

Re: What is going on with Cubase 7?

Yes as a professional I'm using 6.5 because is fast and solid more than other new version, I can't risk my job during the beta testing period, some people is happy of course probably their workflow is more efficient than mine, but my workflow is amazing under 6.5 not on 7.5.20, same exact workflow with same plugs, this should let steinberg programmers think about. I love the new features, I was very close to switch.....steinberg is far from 100%, Cubase 7.5.20 is around 70% imho.
+1
About at the same place I am.
Many great new features, but other core functions have become a bit more clumsy (Control Room and parts of the Mix Console).

Of corse I like the new Track Visibility (been in PT and Studio One for years).
Of corse I like the new Track Versions (been in PT and Studio One for years).
Of corse I like the new Tab To Transient (been in PT and Studio One for years).

That makes perfect sense to me. :D If you need absolute stability one should not be working with the latest version / update even. NOTHING about new versions of software of any sort is reliable, be it music, graphics or even DTP software. If one works with what is reliable you don't end up with clients upset or have crashes on deadlines. I would say that it takes about three to six months to properly evaluate any given new Cubase version. And this is from a very enthusiastic Cubase user. Bets testing? EVERTHING is a "beta" test for at least that long. There's no such thing as "finished".

Re: What is going on with Cubase 7?

Car analogies are very good. If I buy a car, I expect it to drive nicely. Surely I don't want it to freeze and turn off itself suddenly here and there. Probably they make them reliable, because they know there will be no chance for bug fixes. If there are bugs in a car, the whole series will get a bad name, probably the whole company too, and they will be soon out of business. But if cars could be updated with bug fixes, then I bet they would be half reliable too, just as software.

Re: Personal Quest. - is it worth continually upgrading your

I didn't build my own -- I bought a stock HP desktop computer 3 years ago with two drives, super fast quad processor (950), lots of memory, firewire ports, etc. Running Windows 7 64-bit. Internet, email, etc, don't even register. Cubase is my heaviest load, but it doesn't really stress the system usually no matter what I throw at it. Native Instruments Studio Drummer is the biggest hog (much worse than Superior Drummer for example), but I can cope with it (per Steinberg's recommendation, turned off Hyperthreading, and that did help with Studio Drummer).

I'm hoping to stick with this for a while. Not much tuning required. Cubase (6.07) never crashes, performance is great for what I'm doing, and nothing else is even close to burdening the system.

I mean, it's gotten to the point where the computer and software are no longer an excuse!! Honestly, it's what we were all hoping for years ago.

Re: Personal Quest. - is it worth continually upgrading your


I know for a fact that Cubase 7 (7.0.7) is stable, and posts to the contrary are purely the result of user error.

Well isn't that an interestingly bold statement. I have renewed trust in c7 and now it is time to buy.

I used to upgrade every year to a new system. Then it moved to every couple years to today where I don't remember when I built my system. People get to the point where cutting edge is not necessary and will stick with what works. Most studios I worked in when i was younger were that way. Once your rig was refined and stable, everything stayed put for a looooong time.


That is where I am now. Everything I need works really well so I stick with it. I don't need more. Why change anything?

Re: Key Editor - note selection and editing

Press Control+Shift then hover over a note in a chord, a speaker icon should pop up and then you can
click and drag up and down to change velocity. You don't even have to select the note first, just hover over it.

I think I had to change the default modifiers to get this behavior.
Its under preferences/modifiers/select tool.

Re: Should music also look perfect?

Aloha s,

If your musicians are 'on the clock' which means they are 'sight reading'
then the better your score looks, the easier it will be for them to play.
Which means fewer takes and less $$$ spent on studio time.

If time is not an issue (they can have the score for a period of time
prior the the recording date) it won't matter as much.
By then they will for all intent and purpose already have learned it.

Good Luck!

Re: Is there still an update in the pipeline before cubase 8

There are a couple of primary problems for me with C7.x.x when trying to do high volume production work (which is distinctly different than using Cubase as a composition tool). Because of them we are still using 6.5. 7.5 is ok, and in some ways superior to 6.5 for composition. But, for production work it sucks.

1) The break between the mixconsole and the arrange window for key commands and remote control ...
2) The lack of visual queues on the mixconsole for settings/values/controls
3) The control room suffers the same problem and the changed visual paradigm does not fit the use case.
4) Range Solo/Mute does not work properly in the mixconsole.
5) CLICK CLICK CLICK CLICK CLICKITY K C U F" N CLICK. There's a reason we want to use control surfaces. SPEED

There are many more issues in the issues area, but the point is 7.5 is far slower for recording, mixing, post etc...

Re: Is there still an update in the pipeline before cubase 8

Thank you my friend :)

Now we turned on to a constructive path. Great.

I only know Sonic Core by name, but I will check it out. I am certainly on the look for, what I call, a new mixing environment.
I can't afford Nuage, but wouldn't spend that kind of money on something so depended on a piece of software anyway.

Mixing in Cubase 6.5 and Nuendo 5.5 has worked fine with me (with a small controller for automation rides etc), but for some reason I just can't get to like the C7/7.5 mixer and Control Room (I am on the verge of bringing out my old monitor mixer for cue mixes).

I have plenty of hardware hooked up through external FX's (see sig). Both reverbs/delays and compressors/eq's. Working great.

Thanks for good explanation :)

The solution includes a temporary licenses that can be requested in MySteinberg once a USB-eLicenser is lost or defective. This way you can continue working until regular license replacements are issued by support. Of course, this requires a spare USB-eLicenser to make sure you really have a zero downtime.

Re: Does an opinion matter without experience?

Opinions, like an inviting cavity, everyone has one...

There's also hearsay , which isn't a first hand account per say, but passing on what they've heard from others with the experience. This could be as valid or invalid as first hand experience. Many people on the forum claim Cubase 7 has been problematic, features have been omitted, "the new mixer sucks" etc.

Hearsay, no matter what the first hand account is, can be powerful... Take your pick of gods for example...no one in the history of man kind has ever really seen one, yet millions live their lives around this superstition . The hearsay of Cubase greatly pales in comparison. I mean, firstly we all know Cubase and other DAW software really exists ...some of us use different versions of it (Cubase Cakewalk, Logic,Pro Tools etc). Second, we as humans rely on the things we hear from others, they're passed down. Someone recommends using Cubase over say, Cakewalk...so we run out and buy Cubase. Unlike your pick of gods, us DAW users don't generally don't go around and behead those who believe in and use a different software....though some DAW users can be fanatical. Someone indicates that there are many others who don't like, or have found issues with the newest version. When Windows Vista came out, how much of a bad rap of hearsay did THAT spread around the PC community?

Yes, most of us are more comfortable in sticking with what we know . Though I tried Cakewalk, I also tried Cubase. I've stuck with Cubase ever since. I don't need to change, it does what I need & want. New versions have many changes along the way, some cry out in protest over them, while others welcome them. Too much change, and especially just for the sake of changing something isn't always a good thing. I'm sure if I ran out and bought Cubase 7, I wouldn't know how to use it. For as little time I have to spend on my music hobby, I'd be spending all my time relearning how to do simple tasks, that I could have otherwise got some of my idea's down.

Re: Cubase 7.5.30

SMH! People complain when Steinberg doesn't test enough and then go on a rampage about how us paying customers are beta testing for them.....then when Steinberg does take their time to make sure there aren't any issues, the same people complain how long it took to release. Make up your minds already (unless the quoted above was said with sarcasm, which in that case disregard my response! :D )

Definitely not sarcasm...
As I mentioned many times before, I have 40 years in the aerospace industry where software updates for minor corrections were issued, if need be, within 24 hours of a customer reporting the issue. So I know it can be done.

Now, does Steinberg need to issue software maintenance releases on a daily basis... of course not. But, they should be able to do it with no problem if they really wanted to provide "world class customer service". Regardless, April to September for a maintenance release... that's a long time. Especially for what they fixed.

I am very aware of the Aerospace industry as well. You can't compare the time to resolve requirements of the Aerospace industry to the music software industry. The Aerospace industry must have adequate number of resources to handle those critical demands. There were no show stoppers in this fix list that I can see and evidence of that is in the lack of hysteria in the forum since the last maintenance release. I think you should look at other DAW software companies and compare their patch release frequency and application stability to Steinberg's to keep things balanced and apples to apples. You can always buy another product if you think the grass is greener elsewhere.

Relax man... It's just an opinion. Isn't that what our forum is for?

Re: Install dongle inside a laptop? Possible? Downsides?

If I were in the habit of doing on-location recording, I'd build myself a custom portable rig, maybe in a rack or some kind of case. That way I could install & do almost anything I wanted...including installing the USB thingy in the case, out of harms way & sticky fingers...stinky fingers too :D

Re: Daylight saving changed = Cubase plugin rescan [again]

Hi all!

First off, I don't care if it re-scan or not. Its all fine by me. :)



What I´m more concern about is to read how long it takes for some of you starting Cubase?
Sure it takes longer or let me say longest to launch Cubase compare to other programs I have in my computer.
For example Cakewalk SONAR X2 takes like less then one second. But still if it woks better for Cubase and make it more stable taking longer time during initial launching I don't see the big problem here?

I have both hardware control systems and fairly plenty of 3part commercial plugins installed in my computer example: NI Komplete, all Spectrasonics, all Cakewalk softwares, all Nomad Factory, BBE, Waves, SPL, Brainworx, elysian, Vengeance, Melodyne etc. Still I'm choked to hear the timeframe's some of you users referring to here.

I don't know what kind of softwares you all use, so I can only speak for myself. To start, I don't use any 32bit plugins or any kind of freeware's from non commercial major manufactories. The only 32bit plugin that I do have installed in my computer is Steinberg Virtual Guitarist 2 and I use that sometimes together with Jbridge.

I don´t use any kind of cracked plugins or softwares in my setup. All are 100% legit softwares even the extra non music softwares!



So I timed it, a normal day in the studio. Let see how long it actually take to launch Cubase?

1. First ever launch of Cubase 7.5 after rebooting the computer. = 25sec

2. Second launch of Cubase 7.5= 16sec

3. I have not timed the actual daylight-rescan of all my plugins, but I remember how long it took. I would guess= maximum of 1min or so. I'm pretty sure it took even less then that perhaps 45 sec.



So why does it take so long time for some of you users? I mean like extreme as +5min up 10-20min? :o :roll:
I know computers and systems and to me 10min even sounds extreme if your use a older computer. It should never ever take like 10min to rescan your plugins unless you are using + 5000 to +10.000-+20.000 plugins in your DAW setup. So something must be seriously wrong here in your setup if it take that long?

And still if you do have installed +10.000 plugins in your setup you should ask yourself do I actually need them? Do I really use all the 10.000 plugins? Think about it! ;)

Thank you Steinberg for a wonderful professional product!

Thank you Steinberg for a wonderful professional product!


I'm so extremely happy and pleased with Cubase 7.5.30 stability and DAW work platform on my own build DAW-computer ,Windows 7 Ultimate x64. It just work and it sounds great too. Stability that are so important during working many hours has never been any issue for me with Cubase. ([issue]except for USB-abnormality I did uncounted).



I'm using Cubase almost everyday, at least 8-10 hours a day making professional music productions. I'm have a digital Studio facility and producing modern pop and digital music to various artists.

Everyday I use different external hardware's (Hybrid Mixing) together with Cubase 7.5.30 and I can say it works like a charm without any latency problems. Latency issues and problems you can find in many other DAWs.
In all my projects I always use my external hardware effects inserted, some are "vintage" gear. I also run-thru and record production elements thru external hardware example compressors etc. Sometimes I use analog synths too.

During sessions I record vocals with artists and I can always count on Cubase to perform without any hiccups or stability issues or crashes during important recording sessions. That is very important for me and VST connect are another new great handy feature included in Cubase too. VST connect are especially handy for live previewing over longer distance with other co workers, Artists and clients.


I also use hardware mixing controls with Cubase and I can honestly say, everything just WORKS!!! :D


Thank you Steinberg for making one of finest "First Class" professional DAW on the market right now! :D
Keep up the good work! ;)


Best Regards

Re: How hot is your system running?

If you don't trust that utility, download speedfan. It's a small program that reads all your temperature sensors and it can plot their readings in a nice graph over time so you can look back what the temperature was after a taxing session.

RE airflow: Tom is right, although in some modern PC cases the PSU is mounted at the bottom in which case you should get an additional exhaust fan. Generally it's smart to have more intake than exhaust fans, as this creates overpressure inside the case which keeps dust out.
Speaking of dust, if you haven't cleaned your PC before and worry about the temperatures, it might be a good idea to open up your case and remove as much dust as you can from the heatsinks and fans.

Re: Daylight saving changed = Cubase plugin rescan [again]

It's an industry standard method using file modification times to see if files have updated - pretty much no other way you can do if you don't want to scan the files. BUT, one should use GMT (now called UTC) because that doesn't change twice a year...

Re: Daylight saving changed = Cubase plugin rescan [again]

Personally I am not overly concerned at what cubase does or does not do in this regard as inspiration does not necessarily strike me the moment I turn on my computer...

glad it doesnt affect you sycophant. you obviously dont have paying clients in your studio, or session musicians/singers that are sitting around for ages twiddling their thumbs and charging you by the hour, because youre busy like a beaver trying to get Cubase to start whilst its scanning all your plugins, yet again, with no choice in the matter, freezing on "problem" plugins, hitting Ctrl-Alt-Del, rebooting Cubase over and over etc. whilst the muso's standing around announce "this is why i dont use Cubase, i use Reaper (Albeton etc) on a PC and i dont have these kind of problems".

For the rest of us, this is a big problem indeed.

Maybe there's a reason this all happens on two Sundays a year. :lol: If one prepares then turn DST off and adjust the time later manually. Takes maybe ten seconds. Rescan AFTER the session. My clients don't twiddle thumbs for that long as usually one or more of them turn up at least an hour late. :mrgreen:

Re: Daylight saving changed = Cubase plugin rescan [again]

I've been with my current Mac Pro rig for almost 6 years. Never noticed this DST issue. Is it a PC-only thing?


Hi there!

Yes only on PC platform. It scan itself is all about checking plugins compatibility with Cubase/Nuendo/Wavelab platforms from Steinberg. Other platform have exactly same scanning feature build in. The difference are that Steinberg's software scanning get triggered by that the clock change twice a year.

So this happens only twice a year at spring and autumn once.
Some users get major problems becuase some of the plugins would crash and fail during scanning.
Instead of excluding this bad buggy plugins and blame the bad buggy plugins that do fail some blame Steinberg why Cubase scans twice a year after the clock change from wintertime to summertime?

Who's wrong and who's right?
It up to you to decide.

Re: Who here is still using Windows XP EOL?

I have been given a Windows XP laptop, which still works fine for web surfing and general office tasks but is there anyone using it for the DAW and if so what issues (if any) do you experience?
Basically, you have to apply a lot of optimisations and disabling of services , which are generally unnecessary for W7 onwards.

Re: Daylight saving changed = Cubase plugin rescan [again]

Hello,

sorry for the lack of response on this one. The reasons behind this behaviour are not really well-known.

What I gather is: this is due to how Windows handles DTS on NTFS volumes - after a time change, the files will appear as having a different time-stamp, thus forcing a re-scan (like when you rename a dll, a folder, move dlls to different folders, etc.). I will ask for further info to the proper people (Engineering / Dev) and will post in this thread if I have more info / news.

P.S. No one will get banned for re-posting in the correct Forum - if posting multiple times, we might ask to please create just one thread per topic or merge and move if needed, but that's it ;-)

[Edit: Thread locked to avoid further derailment]

Best,

Re: The difference in inserts and send which better

Also as a rule dynamic effects such as noise gates, expanders, compressors and limiters always on an insert.

Re: Daylight saving changed = Cubase plugin rescan [again]

The reason it is deeper is because each time Cubase starts (or you press the Update button) it checks each .DLL file modification time against it's previous modification time as stored in the XML file, only scanning any that don't match.... But when DST changes then ALL the mod times are 1 hour different therefore all plugins are scanned.

Re: Is my money safe with Steinberg?

"Grace period" is only for people who happen to buy the previous version within weeks of the release of the new version.

If you have 7, 7.5 is only USD$49.99.

The forum is abuzz with rumours of 8 coming out soon, but 7.5 has yet to mature. I doubt we'll see 8 this year. Even if they dropped it next week, I wouldn't go for it yet.

Re: Is my money safe with Steinberg?

+1 on getting full-screen functional!

In the meantime, why not just have the Mixer as-big-as-possible on your dedicated monitor? That's what I do with my second monitor. Just keep other apps off it.

Re: Future Music Mag drops Cubase support

"Future Music Mag drops Cubase support", Funny :lol:
I couldn't care less... I never read it anyway.

Steinberg/Yamaha and Cubase/Nuendo are the leading platform on music and film. :D
So they should perhaps change their name too if they aint going write about new technology. From "Future" to "Yesterday"-Magazine.
