Hahahaha!!!!! I've lost it.

This loss of mouse scroll wheel function every single time I load mixer settings or import track archives has made me crazy past the point of being angry; I just think it's hysterical now :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: After using C7.06 for 2 months straight and doing 4 full band EP's I can say that I'm going back to 6.5 for the time being. Channel linking is awesome, being able to add groups and fx to selected tracks is awesome and chord track is pretty neat-o but (in my humble opinion) everything else is not as fluid or just downright obnoxious to use due to the insane amount of clicking or waiting for buttons to appear on the mixconsole. I really, really do hate whining but I'm just venting. ..Oh.. The program seems super stable though; it hasn't crashed at all :)

Re: Do you recommend upgrading to Windows 8?

Oh, no. We haven't had a platform flame war here in a long time. Please don't start one now.

Re: Cubase 7 doesnt free up memory between projects (OSX Lio

The purge command in the terminal window, solves this situation perfectly!
I don't see any problem to free up memory this way, makes absolutly no sense to restart your Mac :-)

Cubase 7 doesnt free up memory between projects (OSX Lion)

Hi there,

Looks like Cubase doesnt totally free up the memory when you close your projects
and load another one. That means , if you load many projects one after the other, you'll get a very slow Cubase and very little memory left , and consequently many disk swapping.
For instance, when I open a project that takes about 7 gb of memory, if I close it , Cubase still takes 2-3 gb of memory , unlike the 250 mb Cubase takes when first opened.

So, while this situation is sustainable if you work on 2-3 projects, if you need to open at least 10-15 projects in a short amount of time, you need to close Cubase a few times , then do the purge command in OSX terminal.

Kinda annoying isnt it ?

Maybe something to consider, a true purge of the memory when closing a Cubase project....

Re: Cubase 7.5.1 Vs Logic X Pro Test on Mac

There's more to measuring performance than seeing how many hundred reverb plug-ins you can run at one time. ;)

Geez, I'm glad finally someone finally brought that up! Some people are so consumed with benchmarks and technical data that they forget about what the DAW is really for....creativity. Granted, you need to be sure a system can handle your needs, but you also need to be realistic. If you need to load 2000+ MIDI tracks and 100 virtual instruments, is that practical? No. Is it a convenience? Maybe for some, but not necesary. Hans Zimmer does, but he has an assitant that runs his arsenal of slave computers. I know many pro film/tv composers using moderate setups using Logic X and/or Cubase. It really makes no difference on the DAW, but whatever you are comfortable with...period. I'm forced to use the elusive Pro Tools, but only for delivering final cues to the editors. It's the same with Mac and PC; both are excellent, but it comes down to personal preference (I use both in my studio).

Cheers! :D

Re: [ISSUES] VST performance related

One thing that might help, not sure if it's been mentioned yet..

Have you all tried praying to Jesus?

Chances are, you're more likely to find resolution there than here on this forum.

Good luck to you all.

Earth calling Steinberg support!!

cubase probs.JPG This is another problem that keeps popping up & stopping cubase in its tracks (please see picture)

Any ideas Steinberg please?

Who is the best person to contact at Steinberg? No one seems to ever get back to you on here , what's going on??

When I first bought Cubase you could phone up support & it was very good, now there doesn't seem to be any support that you can get answers from.
I really don't understand how they can think this is a good way to proceed. And if they don't think this is a good way to proceed they should just at least tell us what's going on.
I sent them a support ticket/problem a while ago now (about 2-3 weeks) I got an email saying they would get back to me soon about it but I still haven't heard a thing. There doesn't seem to be any way to check hoe the support ticket is doing or to re-send it or reply to them about it??? Maybe i'm missing something?? :?

If anyone from Steinberg reads this post could you please just send me a quick message or reply to show that it's actually being read. Thank you very much.
