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: 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

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.

Re: CUBASE 7.5 bypass plugin - different look

Yeah, getting sick of hovering, waiting, moving, hovering, clicking, missing, moving, hovering etc etc
When mixing you should "act" on the mixer, rather than think. A mix console is for an engineer what an instrument is for a musician. You must be able to learn to "play it" on instinct.......

........This is very difficult with the new Mix Console in C7/7.5 and Nuendo 6, and we can't "play it" as of now, as you have to stop - where is what? what are the status? what plugins are open? etc........... "Killing" the creative flow when you are in the "mixing zone" when all you want is to follow your "feeling" and direction of the song.

To take it to the extreme, it is almost disrespectful to mixing engineers, to prioritize "look" before functionality.

Re: UNDO for the mixer. Absolutely necessary!

especially the new mixer has to be used with the scrolling bar.
many people use the mouse wheel for that.
it often happens that you accidentially
have the cursor over a fader or knob while trying to scroll.
no problem in most cases but sometimes annoying because something
isn't right but you don't immediatly hear were you turned the wrong knob.

the other thing: you accidentially change an insert. no problem if its just an eq.
but i becomes a real problem if you use someting complicated like a huge rack built with guitar rig, fx rack with reaktor or simply something like a complex template for fabfilter volcano / timeless.

especially for edm guys it is a problem if they made a complex automation and have to go back to scratch if they didn't save while working half an hour to create that "big riser" before the "drop". it is easy to click and accidentially choose another plugin.

this is not a first person shooter were you loose credits when accidentially hitting a wrong target.
this is professional music production software. Undo is absolutely necessary.

I don´t know why there even is a debate if there should be undo or not, of course there should be a mixer undo.

The other day I accidentally included a lot of hidden tracks when q-linking some visible ones for a re-routing operation, all tracks was re-routed and it was a mess to get back to the original routings. I wished for a undo then. This cant be prevented by automating stuff.

Same thing if you accidently remove a plug in, no automation will help you there.

Re: UNDO for the mixer. Absolutely necessary!

Maybe you guys do it all the time, but I am not keen on using automation for mixer undos man.

It doesn't matter to me what a "system" did in the 70s. we are talking about a modern DAW system which we have invested a lot of time and technology into. This is not a console, right? If I wanted that, I could always branch out into the N12 or something.

What are you suggesting exactly, so I'm clear. You have all tracks armed for automation at all times just in case you need to step back for whatever reason? wow, not sure everyone would like that way of working, kinda sounds like a cluster-uknowhat. I'd rather not 'track' my moves that way, it feels like uneccessary project/arrangement complication, where I think we want it kinda tucked under the hood. Keep automation for music, undo as a utility!

That sounds as bad as the hoops and loops used to get a simple sidechain going. But again, I know people who love those kinds of journies lol... people were like "oh it's fine, just create 3 channels, go into options, send this and that, its easy" Bet those folx aint complaining about the little sidechain button. ;)

A frikin UNDO button for the sloppy Mix Console

Since your engineers made it extremely easy for us to click on something in the mix console accidentally, how about an undo ? Like if you accidentally lower the volume fader on a track because the cluttered and sloppy console made it easy for that to happen.

Let those who care for the topic discuss among themself. Maybe it will end up in some constructive ideas and solutions,and not another meaningless internet fight.

My statement, and personal opinion, is that the Mixer is a "mess" GUI wise and because of that also function wise. A seperate undo list for the mixer is very welcome IMO.

Before jumping at me: Yes, I like the Track/Channel Visibility introduced in C7/7.5 (alongside the Track Versions).

Don't automatically activate remaining open project

So I have on project running.

Then for some reason I need to go through a series of other projects to locate something.

The problem is leaving the project I'm working on open is a pain because Cubase will automatically activate it once
I close the project I have just opened.

So I have to either let Cubase activate the main project every time which takes ages or close the main project before going through the other projects then re-open the main project once I'm done looking through the other projects. Neither is really satisfactory.

I can't see any use in this default behaviour so it would be very kind of you to turn it off!

Re: NEK.

As a business purchase NEK is not expensive IMO. It's more the principal of getting it all when buying the flagship.

[FR] Two mono files on stereo Track


this is one that I would really love.
You can do this in PT, and it really helps with AAF imports that usually contain split stereo files.

I know you can convert split stereo to stereo interleaved, but as soon as a fade or edit is slightly off on one track it will not work anymore. I end up using two linked mono tracks panned hard left and right (emulating split stereo), but then if you search and drag something from the media bay or pool it will only drag the left side across (a major PITA)

I think there is room for improvement

Re: Pro Tools vs Nuendo

I prefer Nuendo in the majority of ways.

To me, the things I miss most from PT are:

> The way you can see much more info *at once* as far as what's on each channel, in the PROJECT window (this saves huge amounts of time).

> The floating fader feature, per channel (a highly useful tool).

> Import session data (looks like this is coming to Nuendo...this is HUGE!)

> To me the PT mixer looks cleaner and more professional, but that's just personal opinion.

That's exactly what I am talking about. I can not work in PT, it is just "not mine". But these 4 features (since we have beat detective style editing only these 4) I miss very hard! Nuendo would be perfect with features like these.

The comment regarding Chevrolets and German cars does not make any sence to me - nobody wants Nuendo to be like PT, but it would be AWESOME if Nuendo could have some features which are actually better in PT. Sorry to say that. This is not a Nuendo critique - it is meant as a suggestion.

It just struck me (not really) how much info you can get from those two windows in PT. Both in the mixer and the project window, without hovering over and/or clicking, you can get a great amount of info just by swiping your eyes across the screen/screens.

I can see what Brandy wants, especially when stretching the project page across 3 screens. Then the info provided (horizontally) for each track seems to show about 80% of the regular mixer channels, if not more.

PS. For every move Steinberg does, the Pro Tools mixer looks more and more appealing ;)

and yes - that is exactly what I meant. I am used now to the new Nuendo Mixer and GUI wise I am fine but still too much clicky clicky - and when I look at that PT project page I would be able to stay 80% of the time in the project window - usually during mixing it is (for me, here) not like in old days - sitting on a mixing desk.. ballancing the whole thing..

80% of the time I spend with adjusting elements... lets have that short leadguitar/speach/instrument in the second prechorus... you just did some editing to the event in the project - maybe a fade out.. then you want to adjust something.. a plugin, a send... you can switch to the mixer, re-locating that track... or you can use the track inspector (click click click) - but then you have ONLY that track - no way to check/adjust some other elements in that part as well, while just beeing in the "right mood"

The blinking Mixer.

Since I've now bought into this N6.5 update I have been determined to try and use it, but although there are apparently some good new features (the only one I use, and actually like, is the Track Visibility stuff on the Project page - so well done there Steinberg) I find the MixConsole very frustrating to use. Amazingly, N6.5 provided no changes whatsoever to the mixer, and the hindrances to good workflow introduced in N6.bla.bla have not gone away with N6.5.

I really dislike the whole Rack click-fest, and why are the facilities for copying or moving effects from slot-blob to slot-blob not standardized across all rack types?

Why is it necessary to display 'No Effect' in every unused slot when just moving the cursor across the screen? - Here's a tip - get rid of it - we can see a slot is empty, and guess what - it involves less programming to display nothing.

And can we please have the slot numbers back? - Who on Earth thought it a good idea to remove something that we have all been used to for years (something that really helped the workflow) and replace it with - Nothing?! - We all know that often less is more, but in this case less is just a load of non-specific black blobs!

I am aware that these issues have been aired before, but perhaps it is time to reiterate them to keep Steinberg aware that the idea of hiding regularly used information can in no way be considered better than displaying information where the users expect to find it.

I'm going to have a lie down now.

Re: [FR] No hovering needed to see mixer values.

I have seen it, but it only makes the mixer even more unbearable to "look at"/operate.

Is this all an attempt to break the "Touch Screen Community"? To fit our fat fingers?

PS. The phase switch/button should always be visible, as "the" phase symbol (Ø) with some not to bright color when engaged.
This is just an example of basic info that should not be hidden behind an open/close section (which also happen to take an inch of the screen).

Re: Cubase 8 wishes (better compressor!)

Improved compressor. Even the fastest setting on any of them is still way too slow to catch drum transients.

I don't buy UAD compressor plugs like the LA-2A and 1176 series for the "classic GUI" or because I'm into modeling classic gear, I use them because they perform well and are easy to use. I love C7, but the dynamic plugs are very weak, to say the least. (The Steinberg 1176 knock-off is a complete joke, too.)

Again, I believe it's long overdue for a pro rebuild of the essential dynamic plugs included with Cubase. Really tired of having to deal with expensive, dongle-laden 3rd party software for basic dynamic and eq functionality.

Also, speaking of plug-ins, let's talk about Reverence. This is a great reverb plug, second only to Altiverb IMO, but it is somewhat hobbled by the lack of quality IR files.

Improve MixConsole/Track Sync

While I'm thinking of it...

The MixConsole/Track Sync needs work.

1. Click on the track Name in MixConsole. If that track is -already- selected in the Project BUT it has scrolled off the viewport (you paged up for example so it's no longer in view), the Sync does nothing. What it -should- do is ALWAYS scroll the 'sync' track into view.

2. Click on the track Name in MixConsole. If that track is inside a folder (say a VST channel), the Sync does nothing. What it -should- do is OPEN the folder and then scroll the 'sync' track into view.

In short, 100% of the time clicking the track Name in MixConsole should bring the Project track into view.

All joking aside, this -is- a drag. Like it or not, the world has gone EDM and if you do electronica of any kind you GOTTA be able to -easily- and -precisely- draw complex patterns.

I've been struggling (literally) for months with a vocoder effect in Reaktor where I want to modulate a formant filter to make various 'syllables' really POP on certain bars/beats.

What I -want- should be easy as pie: imagine a sine wave pattern that is itself modulated by a square wave.

Now... try -drawing- that in Cubase. Can it be done? Sure. You can also break out of Shawshank in 19 years.

Electronica lives and dies by creating complex automation like this and without precise drawing tools it's a total pain. You can have all the new synths in the world, but good automation is what makes it -interesting-.

Re: For the love of God, PLEASE eliminate hovering in the mi

You've obviously not used Cubase 6 then?... loads of room when designed properly!
I have to ask - were you around on the old forums, at v6.0/6.5..?

Then you will remember like me, all the dozens upon dozens of posts whinging and complaining about the (f)ugly and old mixer in Cubase:-
- "Steinberg, when are we getting a redesigned mixer - its 2010 for god's sake..! I want to see Inserts and Sends at the same time"

- "Come on SB, get with the program.! This mixer is way past its sell-by date; ugly, complicated, ergonomically backward, not scaleable. Look at Studio One, or Reaper, or even Reason with their new 'SSL' type console...".

- "I'm telling you, if this doesn't get updated soon, I'm seriously thinking about switching my main DAW".

- "This mixer is OLD Steinberg - we need a better design mixer like NOW..!!"

etc, etc, etc... and on and on it went...

Whats Steinberg to do..?

So, to now.

I, as a couple of others here have said, like the new clean look too. I work on albums (mostly audio) with track counts averaging 70+ As soon as I started 'migrating' to the new v7.0 edition, I admit it did take til v7.5 before I found I was good/comfortable enough (and things were working well enough..!) that I could stop my occasional trips back to v6.5. And, I haven't since.

Having said all that, I'll go with any improvements/solutions from SB, to the 'hovering' access to controls that you and others are continually frustrated and annoyed by - as long as we don't go back to the 'clutter-fest' that was previous to C7

I agree that 6's mixer needed improving!.. that's not the issue, the issue is the hovering around for buttons to appear, fix the hover button issue and all will be good in Cubase land again!;)

Re: Instrument Rack too big?


Its use of space is poorly considered for the new docking feature.

And in general, it's typical of Cubase's undisciplined, arbitrary, inconsistent and "fugly" fit-and-finish.

It's the wrong place to be doing that pseudo skeuomorphism thing; save that for the VSTis.

Cubase looks great in a dimly lit room from about 10 feet back (or a small product screenshot on the back of a box), but get up close and it's a mess.

Sorry, I promised myself I wasn't gonna mini-rant about this again. :lol:
