Cycle Markers Question

I am apparently misunderstanding the Cycle Marker Function and would like a clarafication from someone here using it correctly.

When I want to rehearse a section of a song for overdubs, making mixing choices, etc., I'd go to the master start and end sections and type in the parameters, say Loop bars 1 - 8 and then hit the cycle icon to activate the loop. This works great, but the down side was remembering to reset the original Left/Right points for the entire song.

So I THOUGHT that being able to insert a cycle marker into the Markers Master List would allow me to just double click that point and activate the cycle icon without having to re-set the master start/end points of the song. Since I can add mutliple cycle markers, this would be a huge time saver for me.

But when I actually tried it, it didn't work. I double clicked (as instructed in the manual) the inserted cycle marker, with its own start and end points set, activated the cycle icon and, when it got to the loop point, it kept right on playing the song to the end. As I was in a hurry to finish my project, I went back to the old way of doing it with the master locate points. But I'd really like to know how to make this feature work, or did I misunderstand it's purpose?

Iro: Track Color Pack for Cubase

Hi everyone.

This is a neat little color pack I made for Cubase 7.5. For me, the default colors were not enough as I tend to have a lot of tracks, often with the same instruments, but with variations. It takes a considerable long time to make a set of new colors so I thought I would share it with you guys so you don't need to do this yourself. Am I not grateful? :D

The pack consists of 8 different main colors with 8 additional shades of each color. 64 colors in total!
Once you install the colors I suggest you do not tamper too much with the intensity/brightness as this can cause some of the colors to look alike. Yes, I did this myself and had to redo everything.

Please see the link to my blog for installation:

I do not have the privilege to test this on a mac or different versions of Cubase. If you are able to successfully apply these colors on another system please share how you did it.

Hope you enjoy it!

Re: VCA faders in Nuendo

VCA faders are working nicely on the Nuendo 7 beta version.
They will not be included in Nuendo6.x

Re: Concerned about Nuendo 7 after using Cubase 8

users who have given up on Cubase 8 and reverted to 7.5,

It´s always the same with new versions and there is no difference to other developers. x.0 Release versions have issues.

Since SB sadly has no open betas for new versions, this evolution (a.k.a. fixing) can only happen during the release cycle.

I´ve personally only once gone back to a previous version, that was from N4 to N3. N4 really had major issues, with no workarounds that solved the multiple problems I encountered. Looking back I can say N4 was nothing but trouble and I wish I had skipped it. N5 was solid for me, as well as N5.5, 6.0 and 6.5.

But N4 is long forgotten and I think SB is sill awesome, as I use their software every day and it does all that I need.
Well, I have to admit I´m a bit of a Steinberg fanboy :D

Re: Nuage = amazing!

Hard to imagine not leveraging all of that development cost downward to a engage a much larger segment of potential buyers. Their take on "Nuage Artist" in the $5000 - 6000 range of the Avid S3. I think that's a 10X larger market than the $25,000 for Nuage. Which is a great controller, but is simply out of reach for the vast majority

I think a problem is the actual range of features supported in Nuage. Ask yourself this: What would you be willing to give up in a $5,000 unit (compared to Nuage)? And then: What would you expect in addition to what you get for a $1,000 Avid Artist Mix?

If you look at only the Nuage mix and compare it to the artist you get pretty tight integration in both cases (I presume, and compared to HUI) through the respective protocols. Nuage mix has 16 faders and 32 rotary encoders, and the Artist has 8 of each. It's not a simple equation here. Buttons are cheap. No way you're going to shave of 50% off the price by getting rid of buttons. So that means cutting faders and encoders. So at what point does that work? $5k for 8 faders? You get 16 in the Avid S3, and if you buy multiple Artists you get 32 faders for $1k less. Ok, so 16 faders and only 16 encoders and half the buttons? Hmmm.... Feels like we're in s3 territory again, and a lot of people have been complaining that the s3 is wildly overpriced.

Of course functionality could be cut, but then people would complain about an "artificial" creation of a market segment; i.e. with only a firm/software switch the device would do a lot more.

So the way I see it there's definitely a market for a nice, smaller controller, but with the landscape the way it is I still don't see how they won't mess up their own sales one way or another. I'd personally love a device at about $3k. It'd be cheaper than the s3 but more tightly integrated than the Artist. At that price point 16 faders, at least one encoder per channel, and some dedicated buttons. But I can guarantee you that if such a device existed it'd eat up some prospective Nuage customers.

I have to say that I think Nuage, although it's a fantastic product, seems priced a bit high - from an engineer's consumer perspective.
