Re: Tips Tricks And Workflow Goodness.

Ummm Logical Editor:

Being a MIDI guitarist from the early 90's the LE was a must learn.
Here is my approach(es):

1-When using it stop thinking like an artist/musician etc
and start thinking more 'scientific'. (similar but not quite the same)

2-Don't go in 'cold'. Decide want you want to accomplish and use a preset
that steers in that direction. There are many in Cubase. Tweak from there.

3-Save your tweak as a preset. You might need it later and you might forget how you got there.
(happened to me a lot at first)

4-Using LE custom presets along with KeyC's can really speed the workflo'.

Re: Tips Tricks And Workflow Goodness.

Any special tasks you use the Project Loical Editor for ?

In order to 'track' with more accuracy a MIDI guitar controller puts out
mucho extra MIDI info. (mainly lots o' extra pitchbend/note info)

Back in da day in order to use MIDI tracks in a 'live' situation,
projects were stored on floppy discs. (Roland MC50)

So to save space this 'extra' info needed to be removed.
(Now days this is not a prob).

One of the Cubase LE presets was 'delete short notes' (its still there).
Once I learned how to adjust the value/length of the short notes,
I started to get a 'feel' for how the LE works.

Now along with KC's I use it for many purposes.

Like for example: quickly adjusting MIDI volume/pan/octaves etc.
And some 'secret sauce' stuff as well. :)

Re: copy protection 2014

Aloha z,

For me personally I have been using Cubase live on stage
every weekend since SX3 with no dongle probs.

They do start to 'wear', so I replace them occasionally.

I treat my dongle like my ax. I am very very careful with it.

IMHO
if you are a serious live pro, you will carry more than one dongle (license).

Re: Steinberg's dongle alternative coming

It is one thing to say, "Hey Steinberg, the dongle is inconvenient and I would be even more interested in your product if I didn't have to use it." It is even acceptable to say, "I won't buy another product that requires it." This is what the feature request forum is for...

It is another to say, "I can't believe I have to use a dongle! I am the customer and you have to make me happy. I can't live by the terms of the transaction I have already agreed to." This is just whining.

It is so lame to whine about a deal after one has agreed to it.

Never agree to terms that are not acceptable to you. If enough agree, then of course, the vendor will have to make an adjustment. If you give in and buy anyway, then you are just confirming that the terms were reasonable.

Word! Big time!

Re: digital piano and cubase/midi compatibility

Thanks both of you, curteye, jaslan.....i am clearing up many questions by participating in this forum....i am trying to avoid an anxiety attack when i bring Cubase 7 home for the first time.....This forum is all about problems---that makes me pessimistic--- i can't handle computer disobedience, eh?....do you guys get a problem every time you work Cubase 7?

For me using any DAW is like riding a bucking bronco.

But with some time/discipline and focus you can
learn to stay on for waaaaaaay more than 8 seconds. (most days). ha :) :) :)

Don't get discouraged. The Cubase learning curve (from scratch) is steep.
But if we can do it, so can you.

You are on the right path and are asking the right questions.
Don't stop now.

And Good Luck!

Re: Mini The Moog

First congrats on the new ax.


1 - To visually memorize the settings (on the control panel) of your patches so that you can re-create these as and when required.
2 - To be able to turn the dials on the control panel without actually playing the keyboard (ie. being able to hear the sound in your head ).

This reminds me that we would actually write/play 8-16 (what ever it took)
bars of just drums or bass and drums etc into the music just to give the keyboard player
time to 'set-up' his moog for the next sound.

This was early to mid 70's and DISCO was king. (oowe oowe) :)
So we could get away with that. :)

Ah those were the days. Satin pants and platform shoes.

Re: Tablets that can run full Cubase? Not as a remote contro

Aloha J,

I have not seen a tablet that can run a full Cubase programme
but some approaches would be an app like Cubasis.
http://www.steinberg.net/en/products/ios_apps/cubasis.html

or

GarageBand for iOS
http://www.apple.com/ios/garageband/

Also I believe Steiny has announced some Android stuff shipping soon.
(But that is just for Cubase iC Pro!)
http://www.steinberg.net/forums/viewtopic.php?f=174&t=33471&hilit=android
Which means to me tho' that they definitely looking in that direction as well.
Stand By.
{'-'}

BTW
Apple's new 64 bit A7 chip does seem to have the power to run an app like Cubase.
A user can get 32 tracks in Garage band now. (however with no ability to run 3rd party sound sources/plugs).
Yet!
And not enough memory in these machines to take full advantage of a 64 bit architecture.
Yet!

Also Stand By.

And if it is just a digital quality stereo recording, also consider a simple hardware device like the Zoom.

Re: this'll change everything 14 nov

Aloha guys. Just to chime in.
The world is my studio.

+1

That's what this whole thing is about.

"Steve Vai and Herbie Hanc0ck came to my bedroom and played on a track for me".

1-Imagine if your client was willing to pay $$ for
George Benson (from his home laptop) to play over the sketch guit part you wrote
or Steve Gadd play over your basic drum groove etc.

2-Or you are a classical pianist and now you actually playing/recording
that million $ piano in Veinna or Paris or New York etc
(in your housecoat and underware at 4am) :) via MIDI.

To create an outline of a song and get some of the greatest
musicians in the world (or nice players/friends you know) to do the actual playing on it is IMHO
truly a game changer.

And while I totally agree with 'TheNavigator'
I would prefer my BFD 3 over almost any real drum recording nowadays

The 'sounds' are there yes but how good is our performance using this tech
compared with a pro studio drummer?
Those lil tiny nuances can't alway be done with tech alone.

That being said;
to get a Steve Gadd/Alan Morgen to play your BFD drums on a track
would be the best of both worlds and now it is not only
possible but also (if this all works as planned) very easy to set-up
and operate.

Of course all licensing and $$ issues would have to be negotiated first but
imagine being able to say:
'I've got a session scheduled with Leo Kottke and B.B. King coming up'.
And really mean it. :)

And the door is now wide open for 'vox's'.

So many of us create great work but can't sing very well (or at all).
I can imagine a 'data base' of singers all around the world
waiting and willing to give our work a go.
Kinda like a plug-in; if you don't like that one, just try another one.

One question tho'.
Does/can the client version show any notation/scoring info on that end?
So players can read from a manuscript/chart.

Future looks bright. To use or not to use. At least we now have even more options.
I'm giving George a call :)

However as you're beginning the process of home studio creativity, and learning which daw,which software etc. adding on the PC building component would be foolish.There is more to know and learn when it comes to PC building than anything else. Your best bet would be to buy a custom music PC from a reliable maker. In a couple of years when you're ready to move up to a more powerful PC ,then you might look at building your own.

Re: Looking For a Great Sounding Hammond B3/Leslie Speaker V

Aloha P,

In the mid to late 60's while in my Kenny Burrell mode (Jimi Hendrix was just coming on the scene)
I did stints with Jimmy Smith, Jimmy McGriff, Jack McDuff and 'Groove' Holmes,
So I know how 'picky' organist can be about their sound.

While most of these guys wanted their sound to be 'smooth', Jack McDuff was going for
that Jon Lord sound (tho' I did not know of Deep Purple at that time).

Problem was altho' he could get it (or close to it) in the right hand, the 'crunch' would also
be in the left hand where (contrary to belief) most of the bass sound was played. (not the pedals)

A lil fact:
All of these guys rarely used the pedals except when either 'showing off' or
mainly in ballads. 99% of jazz organ bass sounds are done in the left hand.

Bottom line is I really know that B/C3 sound and IMHO no plug has what I remember in my head.

That being said:
give this one a listen. Not very expensive and can go from 'clean' to 'dirty' with no probs.
http://www.genuinesoundware.com/?a=showproduct&b=24

Leslie sounds.
Now that's a whole other thread. Jimmy McGriff used two Leslies and had some sort of
contraption that would 'sync' the two. It rarely worked but when it did it was amazing!
Anyone remember the Yamaha Leslie? With the three moving speakers? I still have one in storage. :)

Good Luck!

Re: Question about sound quality

Aloha S,

Cubase (or ProTools) will sound just as good as
sound recorder from default programs
and can sound 'better' if you increase recording resolution and sample rates

With Cubase you can record at 16/24 or 32 bit float resolution
with sample rates from 44.1 kHz to 192kHz

Keep in mind that recording at higher rates will:
1-increase cpu load while recording.
2-increase file size after recording.

But audio does 'sound better' at these increased rates.

Good Luck!
{'-'}

BTW
(without their knowledge) I have done some 'unscientific' tests with some of my
clients and depending on the material, many of them cannot hear a higher rate difference.
(at least they have not mentioned it. which means to me they cannot hear it).

Re: Mahalo to 'SteveinChicago' & 'Vic_France' re: Sebelius—>

Scoring enhancements? I didn't read anything of that sort. Could you please detail what was "enhanced"?

The key to better scores
The Score Editor has been further enhanced to feature all MIDI-related functions from the Key Editor, giving you all the tools you need, when you need them. This includes dedicated edit operations involving the chord track or basic tasks like quantize, transpose and length editing, all sorted and arranged clearly for a speedy workflow. You can easily switch between the score symbols and the MIDI functions Inspector with the new tabs at the top of the edit section. Not just another improvement, and certainly something you won’t want to miss by the end of the first day.

http://www.steinberg.net/en/products/cubase/whats_new/whats_new_in_cubase_75.html?et_cid=15&et_lid=20&et_sub=Coming%20soon:%20Cubase%207.5

it's simply not in the same league as Finale or Sibelius for that purpose, so why bother?
For me using one music programme is very 'satisfying',
and if I run into major probs, Sebelius is just a double-clik away.

I was never able to scoring effectively for more than just a small combo/lead sheet etc when using Cubase 4/5/6.
For larger projects I have used Finalé/Sebelius.

For this project I am scoring for a big band plus strings and chorale

Saxes-1st alt/2nd tnr/3rd alt/4th tnr/5th bari
Brass-4 trp 4 tbn
Rythym sec-Pno bs drm gtr
Strings- 4 violins 3 violas 3 cello
Chorale-30 voxes bs alt sp

And I am for the first time using C7 for the project and it is working.
Nuthin wrong wi dat.

BTW on a funny note (Bb)
My budget is enough this year that I can hire a guitarist (if they can read :))

Re: Cubase 4 and Mac OSC 10.9

Aloha P,

Shot in the dark here (and I hope I am wrong) but it sounds to me that Cubase 4
won't run/install with OS 10.9 because It's too old. (or the OS is too new).

I have not read anywhere that C5 runs with 10.9 so that bodes well that C4 also will not.

You may have to get a newer version of Cubase or downgrade your OS.

Also, IIRC Isn't C4 for the Mac a PPC app? If so there is no more 'Rosetta' in the OS to translate to Intel.

Perhaps someone else in the forum will have another approach.

Re: digital piano and cubase/midi compatibility

the salesman i talked to laughed: MIDI's obsolete!!!! he said...

Aloha and bonjour mom ami. :)

First off the sale man is wrong.

The physical 'DIN' connector that musicians call a 'MIDI plug' IS
showing up less in todays gear in favor of the USB
connector but the MIDI language used by both is still the same.

So MIDI is not dead. Just the connector (possibly).

My GR55 guitar synth uses a MIDI USB connector and
plugs directly into my computer USB port.

As I perform, the GR sends MIDI info via USB that is then 'read/seen' by Cubase.

Your Yamaha D/Piano should work the same way.

So
1-plug your keyboard directly into your computer's USB port.
Cubase should 'see' that.
2-plug the audio outs of the keyboard into the UR28M and then go from it's USB port
into a second USB port on your computer
Cubase should also 'see' that.

and thanks for the offer.

Normally I would be on board with this but at the rate
Cubase is changing I am afraid a hard bound copy
would in six months to a year end up sitting on a shelf.

What I have done is to go thru the manual page by page
and taken screenshots of 'what I do not know' in Cubase and then transfer
those pics to my iPhone.

This way learning can happen anywhere. Even while on the pot. :)

Good luck with your project.

Re: 3rd party plugin issue

Aloha guys, just to chime in,

I find 3rd party plugs in two places:
The path is:system drive/Library/audio/plug-ins/VST/

As well as
system drive/~/Library/audio/plug-ins/VST

The ~ being 'User' folder.

Some plugs work in both places and others (especially older ones)
seem to work in only one or the other.

Re: Price comparison Cubase 7.5 v Sibelius 7.5

Scoring with Cubase is not bad at all, but it's never been close to Sibellius.

True but this past Xmas (with tips from vic_france and steveinchicago) I was able to produce
a massive score for a live performance by my church and Cubase was fine for that purpose.

In the past I would just grab Seb but now Cubase has become my main scoring ax.

Are we thinking that has changed with these latest versions?

For me it is/was a combination of app improvements and the hard part;
me getting my head around the Steiny scoring concept.

I know C7.5 is no where near perfect and that
some orchestrators even find Finalé limiting; but in my case
I cannot imagine doing a more involved project.
And I am very proud of that work.

It's all 'in-house' for me now. Cubase rocks at church.

Re: 7.0.7 late update

I agree with all Martinoto said. Also, I guess it´s a bit of a dilemma to have a divided customer base, the "amateur" and the "pro" crowd.
As someone who makes his living from using DAW´s I have no problem to pay good money, maybe a annual /monthly fee for having a 100% rock solid product, which is doable if the cash inflow is sufficent. However, I can totally get that the "amateur" crowd (who can not write off their DAW spendings) is not so keen on spending lot´s of their hard earned cash for having bugfixes etc.
It´s a delicate balance act I guess.

WORD! BIG TIME!!

Perhaps the forum should be segregated between users who use the product to make a living
and those who use the product to not make a living.

However in that scenario one side would probably be very sparely populated when compared to
the other side.

Ah! back to big business. You just can't get around that fact.

Good morning America!!
This just in:
A chicago-based musician is facing possible nervous break-down after a "V1 Patience By-pass" surgery. Doctors claim his rare condition might have been caused by NOT tapering off his medication while he definitely needed a higher doze. They also asserted that they had no idea the patient had attempted a self-induced by-pass before the operation, simply because there is no blood test indicating the amount of "Patience" in the patient, while they were "under the impression (as earlier indicated by the patient himself) that he was still using the originally prescribed doze" and that "they felt sorry for him". A source who chose to remain anonymous (Curteye, who allegedly prescribed the medicine initially) says the patient never revisited him to control his doze of "Patience". He further disclaimed any responsibility. More on this, later on the news…

hmmmm maybe i just have an addiction problem -cant wait for my next fix.... damn steinberg!!! you told me you will deliver in jan.
my blood pressure is rising with all this wait grrrrrrrr where can i download latest version of patience???

On a related development, eye-witnesses say an angry-looking drugstore customer has attempted to increase his doze of "Patience" on his own discretion. Police took him to the hospital after smashing the windows of the "patience-related" drugs located in the rear section of the store. Witnesses say he was also using articulately "bad words" against one "Steinberg" company, based in Germany, Utah. The ER doctor claims he is suffering from high blood pressure probably caused by the "wrong" doze of "Patience". Unconfirmed reports say this particular patient was not "patient" enough to receive a "timely" update from the aforementioned company. Investigations are underway to determine the relevance, while our reporters are trying to learn Japanese as fast as they can to contact Steinberg. The relationship between the drug "patience" and blood pressure is taken over by FBI and may result in the questioning of the American Foods and Drugs Administration, Association, Organization, whatever…

And now with the weather is our one and only...

Re: Is midi recording non-destructive?

Aloha P,
In all my years of using Cubase I have not seen non-destructive MIDI.

1-Not nearly the same as non-destruct but there is a feature called:
'Retrospect Recording' where you can get back a short period of time of MIDI played into Cubase while not recording.
Not sure if it works while recording but probably not.
Check page 128 in the manual.

Retrospective Record
This feature allows you to capture any MIDI notes you play in Stop mode or during playback and turn them into a MIDI part “after the fact”. This is possible due to the fact that Cubase can capture MIDI input in buffer memory, even when not recording.
Proceed as follows:
1. Enable the “Retrospective Record”option in the Preferences dialog (Record–MIDI page).
This activates the buffering of MIDI input, making Retrospective Record possible.
2. Make sure a MIDI track is record-enabled.
3. When you have played some MIDI material you want to capture (eitherinStop mode or during playback), select Retrospective Record from the Transport menu (or use the key command, by default [Shift]-Num[*]).


2-Using 'Reset Quantize' you can take a MIDI note(s) back to it's original recorded quantize position.

3-Perhaps the Cubase 'Auto Save' feature could work in your favor in this regard.

Other than those examples, I don't know of a way to retrieve previously recorded MIDI data.

Perhaps someone else could chime in on this.

Good Luck.

Re: What exactly is an external instrument/effect?

Would this be something like a rackmounted instrument or effect?

Aloha R,

In my case yes. I often route MIDI out of Cubase to an external sound module (Roland GR50) and
then bring the audio output of that device back into Cubase on a stereo audio track.

Some users use the same (or similar) approach for FX.

This is easy for me because back-in-da-day when I started using Cubase there were no internal sound sources
(VSTi's). It was all MIDI. Every thing was 'outboard' back then.

Good Luck!

Re: Key Command for track volume??

Aloha guys,

AFAIK it has been since C7 when behavior changed.

I use Cubase live on weekends and the old behavior of using one arrow key
was great for quickly adjusting fader levels while on stage.

Since C7 I now I have to:
1-Make sure the mixer is in focus.
2-Make sure the db volume or fader of the track is selected.
3-Hold down shift/command and which ever arrow key for up/down.

In Steiny's defense;
I really cannot complain because Cubase was not designed for the
way I use it in a live situation but it sure used to be easier to do so.

In fact this was one of the reasons I could use Cubase on stage in the 1st place.

Oh well maybe it will change back. Never say never.

if a user has, and has installed and use lots o'

some of it may not play well with others.

In that situation other forum members reading your sig might be able to help sort out
your conflicts because they may have heard of or have experienced
probs with these same or similar combination of DAW products.

So it is a tough call. My approach to it is like dealing with the law.

Re: Programs in HSSE reseting with every play cycle

Aloha V,

Here is one approach.
Select the track and then use the 'List Edit' function.

It will show you everything that is on that track.
All MIDI info will be shown.

Then use the 'Focus' field to find/change/delete all Program Change messages.

Tip:
Very often these messages are at the beginning of the project.
But they can also be inserted at any position in the track.
So you have to look at the complete track to get them all.
That's where the 'Focus' /'Event Types and Data1' part can be really handy.

The ones I hate are Pan and MIDI volume messages.
But at least there is a Logical Preset to easily get rid of PG Change and Volume.

Good Luck!

Re: MIDI Track Pitch Bend

The list editor I have rarely touched.

Perhaps this is one reason this topic is so 'tricky' for developers;
because there are soooo many different ways to approach these MIDI pitch bend issues.

Example:
Because of the way I learned MIDI; (that being without a computer, and using hardware sequencers only),
I live in the List Editor.
With the LE you know EVERYTHING that is going on. (like getting under the hood of a car)
Especially when dealing with six diff simultaneous MIDI tracks of data each with its own bend rate.

Couple the List editor along with the Logical Editor and that's all I really need to make music.
(that's all those old hardware sequencers were anyway/with floppy disks HA!)

That being said I am totally grateful for the development of the Cubase GUI
but it is still nice to know what is going on downstairs.

Re: Cubase 8: VST Sandboxing (poll)

Can you say more about sandboxing?
Is sandboxing the solution?
I don't know nothing about sandboxing....

Aloha l,

'Sandboxing' is a term currently use by Apple to describe apps
first used on mobile devices (and now on lap/desktops as well) in one of three categories.

1 -Apps purchased from any source. —>Not very secure.
2-3rd party apps bought outside the App Store but 'signed off' in some way by Apple. —>Somewhat secure.
3- Apps bought only in the App Store. —The most secure.

Apps in the sandbox cannot 'talk' to each other (sandboxed) so less threat of mischief
and are by definition 'more secure'.
Another benefit would be if one app goes down the others (and the host machine) remain running.

I guess if you took this analogy to Cubase; if a 3rd party plug crashed,
Cubase and other plugs would keep running.

Nice thought Babak.

My prob is that with the way I work (and other than in a live situation) if a plug failed on me,
I would stop Cubase and fix things anyway.
I could careless if Cubase kept right on running. In that scenario, I could not use it at all.
YMMV

Nice idea tho'

Re: Score & Midi Guitar Questions

Aloha guys,

I have always used Roland pitch to voltage convertors. GR50/GR33/GR55.

In order for me to 'ride this bucking bronco' (using this method) several things work for me.

1- Use MIDI 'Mono Mode'
This basically turns your ax into six separate MIDI streams with six diff 'bend rates'.
Record each on a separate MIDI channel and track in Cubase.

2-Use appropriate 'bend rate' settings.
Most keyboards/sound modules/synth plugs etc come with
bend rates set to +- 2. This is not good for MIDI guitar use.
Bend Rates need to be set to at least +- 12. (My GR 55 uses +- 24)
Thank you Warren Sirota.

3- I don't want to hit this one too hard.
IMHO to really use MIDI guitar properly you have to be a 'killer' player.
There is no other way around this.
For simple lines or pads, OK not a lot of chops are needed.
But to really play this thang, clean MIDI 'Note on' and 'Note off' info is required.

Ironically players of the two styles of guit playing that work well with a MIDI guitar
(classical and jazz) have the least interest in sounding like other instruments. Ha!

4-Scoring.
Once the performance (and editing is done) I often merge
the six MIDI streams into one and scoring happens as normal.

I only score for live musicians/choirs etc so once the work
is printed (and unless changes are needed),
I usually never go back into that project in Cubase again.

Tip:
5-Really get to know the 'List Editor' and the 'Logical Editor'.
These are your friends when it come to using MIDI guitar.

Example: I truly believe Steiny put the 'Delete Short Notes' preset
in Cubase just for MIDI guitarists. It is a Godsend when using MIDI guitar.

A lil story from another post:
http://www.steinberg.net/forums/viewtopic.php?f=209&t=12388&hilit=+midi+guitar

BTW here is a kool lil MIDI guitar trick.
Using Mono Mode, playing a nylon string guitar patch in Cubase with six different sound modules each routed to
one speaker in a 5.1 sound system.
If you sit in the middle of all the speakers and play, the perspective is like you are right in the sound hole
of the guitar.

Try that keyboardist! :)

Aloha d,

Up-dated/graded from:
Lion (10.7.x) to Mountain Lion (10.8.x) to Mavericks(10.9.x) and never had a hitch.

You should have no probs going directly for 10.7 to 10.9.

Couple of things to just make sure:
1-Your machine can make the change. (My laptop is stuck at 10.7.x because it can't go any higher)
2-Do general maintenance stuff. Permissions/de-frag/clean caches etc. The free app Onyx is good for this.
3-Back-up Back-up Back-up Back-up Back-up just in case.

Then add a rarely used feature like the one you requested and I don't
think this function would be very high on Steiny's 'to-do' list.

IMHO your "Orchestration Mode" idea is killer.
It would be a very nice touch.

But would it make Yamaha any extra $$$?
I think not.

Good Luck!

Re: Dongle Durability

it would be difficult to transfer a license from a lost or broken eLicenser device...

Aloha D,

Not completely broken as in; 'does not work at all' but more like the shell
is starting to crack etc.

There's another option, though, for those users who still have the "25 hours All Application"

And for those who do not??????

It's being 'out-sourced' now because it is 'waaaaaaay' cheaper that way.

Should arrive in a 'brown paper bag' in the 'dead of night'
at Heathrow in a week or so. :) :) :)

Re: Trackpad direction change from iPad type to the old-fash

Maybe it's just my old Snow Leopard, and I cannot mount the Mavericks on such an ancient machine.

Ah! I perceive.

Same as with my laptop (see sig).
I cannot get past 10.7 (Lion) with that machine.

There is a free app called: Better Touch Tool (BTT)
Check it out. It might help in your situation.

And did I mention it is free? :) :) :)

Good luck C!

Re: Dongle Durability

Steinberg took remote-access today and resolved if for me

That is soooo kool.

@ Fabio
I recently posted that question (and thanks for your answer)
http://www.steinberg.net/forums/viewtopic.php?f=182&t=59380
and now wonder if the same or similar can be done with Cubase Mac users who are having issues?

TIA (thanks in advance)
