Re: EQ and High Cut Resonances

Hi all,

for those interested, I confirm that the filters in the EQ section are 12dB and that the response received and posted by "mbbx5aw2" is correct, except for the difference between the two EQ section filter types.
Please read the details below:

Type II reacts to Q-factor and can be adjusted to a very high resonance, Type I reacts to Gain, with a rather subtle resonance. That is for compatibilty reasons. Type II was introduced with StudioEQ. Type I is the old Channel-EQ.

For small values of resonance they can be set to be (almost) identical, for example:
Type I Highpass: Gain 0 dB, 1 kHz, Q 1
Type II Highpass: Gain 0 dB, 1 kHz, Q 4.1

Hope this helps.

Re: Cubase 8 /8.5/9...

Workflow is everything, plug-ins are nothing. I can buy the third party plug ins(fx and instruments) and tailor my sound canvas EXACTLY as I want it like that. I CANT buy general workflow in Cubase from a third party developer, it has to be supplied by Steinberg and this is their job to do. Not to cater for any special type of music, like EDM for example just because it´s massive right now. Maybe in 5 years time EDM is really tired and FOLK is the s**t.. Then Cubase need to be just as good for that.
We must avoid bloat as far as possible and building in lots of synths, "phat edm" fx etc is not the way to do that.

Keep it clean, buy what YOU need and do not make others with no interest in your specific needs pay for it.

Lo-cut & hi-cut: not only 24dB


I'd like to select the curve of pre-filter, also 18 dB, 12 dB and 6 dB. This makes usable the pre-filter (24 dB is too much and not natural).
So we can use eq bands 1 and 4 for other fine tuning as well, avoiding open some other stuff on insert.

Make the MixConsole more real console! :)

Why Does Cubase Rune My Creativity Every Time?

So I feel like doing some music for the first time in a couple of weeks, boot up Cubase and it has decided to scan EVERY SINGLE NOTE again. :twisted:
I have a lot of notes.
I am still weighting music heavily towards having more and more of them .............. but Cubase converts every one of them into tiny, little runes ..... like zeroes and ones, at the atomic level, inside a silicon chip!

And before anyone mentions time changes, it is irrelevant, it happens with every time signature I have used, 7/8, 9/8, 5/4 ..... all of them ....... because Steinberg have had years to connect the time sigs.

This is a common thing with Cubase, my random, pointless notes happening at inconvenient times from my skill, or lack thereof, to make music.

In Life, I can get started faster and get ideas down much faster on paper, but the mixing/sound is not as good, so I prefer Cuabse overall, because it is so frustrating when my brain freezes, yes .... I get virtual cortex blue screens (Yes in 2014! Miles did an album about it .... Kind Of Blue) which generally throws a spanner in my cranial works.

Steinberg are so completely the obvious solution to fix simple issues of my, otherwise, analog workflow (drawing flyspecks on notation paper).

I always say "Sort simple things out before adding more bells and whistles". Like doing the guitar overdubs before adding the tubular bells and penny-whistles.

But I know this will happen, as they are neither negligent, nor purposely making there (they're, their) product half finished so that everyone buys the next update in the hope they will be fixated on some new feature set.

I am in the process of going through all my Cubase projects and bouncing all over the studio all happy and gleeful, and when I am done, I am going to smell Cubase, the way I used to open vinyl albums and whiff in the *flower* essence, like perfume.

My notes have finally finished scanning, rant over...........
