Re: Importing projects to master project

I've done this before. Here's how I did it...

Lets say you have Project A, B, and C, and D
Lets say Project D is a BLANK Project and this is the place where everything will be gathered up.

Step 1: Open A. Make sure that you can clearly see your entire project on your screen from the Project Screen to bottom, and Left to Right. Now with the mouse, select ALL regions and audio clips you want to copy into your "Project D"

Step 2: Push CTRL+C on PC (or) Command+C on Mac. This will copy everything, even your faders with effects etc...

Step 3: Open Project D and push CTRL+V on PC (or) Command+V on Mac. This will paste everything. Also open your Audio pool and make sure that all your audio files are "COPIED" to your NEW project. You can right click on the files from the audio pool and select the option that will do this for you.

Step 4: SAVE Project D and close Project A. MAKE SURE THAT THE MOST BOTTOM TRACK (THE LAST TRACK) IS SELECTED BEFORE SAVING. This will ensure that your newly pasted tracks keep getting placed at the bottom of your project.

Step 5: Repeat steps 1, 2, and 3 until you have copied the rest from Project B and C.

Hope this helps and hope you can understand this all. If you have any questions, just ask.

Re: So 7.5 is here (almost)

Since when did software developers begin charging for half versions? My understanding is that 7.5 is not a "NEW" version, as "Cubase 8" would be. [..] I paid for version 7 and you're telling me 7.5 is, essentially, a new version and you must be paid for it - so, in essence, I've paid $575 for version 7? It essentially appears that the 7.5 "upgrade," with the exception of a couple of features, is just an attempt to force me to buy your plugins.
Come on, man! The update cost 50 euro and there are actually a couple of new cool functions along with the usual update of plug-ins. I'm not a sales rep for Steinberg, but we should happily pay for the updates, because that's what's keep them coming.
Regarding new plug-ins, well if Steinberg would release a paid update without new plug-ins, then even more people would question having to pay for it, right?

I think Steinberg has a sensible pricing of their update, especially compared to Avid and Pro Tools. On the other end of the spectrum is Apple Logic Pro that merely costs $199. BUT it took them FOUR years to update the program. Not cool in my book. And I think Cubase users are rather spoiled at being able to actually communicate with representatives of Steinberg, reporting bugs and wishing for new features. Try contacting AVID or Apple and you're probably more lucky sending a beacon into Outer Space.

I'll pay for the update because I use these tools constantly, but don't look to me for continued brand loyalty. I'll learn a new interface if I have to in order to protect my wallet.
Hehe, well you just won't find an interface that's as complete and versatile as Cubase. I know, I've tried them all.

Just pay Steinberg and be happy with the update. If you charge for your services I reckon the new "tab to transient" function will save you hours of editing time each week. At least it will for me. Been waiting a long time for that function, being used to work with Pro Tools HD.

I've been using Cubase for as long as I can remember, and it just keeps getting better and better.

Re: So 7.5 is here (almost)

All of this socialist banter about greed and paid .5 versions is tiring.

The name of the version is semantics. If they called it Cubase 8 what argument would be used then?

The "greed" of someone wanting to be paid more for their product is no worse than the "greed" of someone else who wants to pay less for that product.

A Preference For Shared Copies when Duplicating Events

I would love To be able to tell Cubase to default to creating shared copies of events when using Cmd+D or by dragging.
Having to make a shared copy then duplicate that if I want a number of shared copies is one step too many (as is having to tick the box for shared copy in the repeat part dialogue)

Re: 7.5.1 why steinberg didnt fix the mute bug.

It appears that when muting the instrument track in the project window, you are actually muting the integrated midi track. That means that other midi tracks routed to that instrument will continue to produce sound. Muting the instrument track in the mixer window mutes the actual instrument.

Re: Bounce function is not mixdown

A typical application for bouncing is to consolidate edits of all kinds to a new continuous file. Crossfades, fades, VariAudio edits, warp edits, pitching via infoline, offline processes and volume envelopes are included.

Plugins and channel level are not, that function is called 'bounce in place' in other DAWs and a long time feature request for Cubase.

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: VST Connect SE 2 - How to setup midi recording


to record a MIDI-Device which is connected to the Performer's Computer you have to select the Device in the settings tab first.

on the Performer side
--> connect the MIDI-device and install drivers if needed
--> open the performer app
--> click on the cogwheel symbol
--> click on the "config"-tab
--> click on "MIDI input" and select the connected MIDI-device

on the Cubase side
--> set up a VST Connect recording environment or use the template
--> establish a connection
--> create a new MIDI-Track and record enable it
--> set its input to "TB/Performer: Ins. 1. VST Connect SE - MIDI Out"

hit record and track the MIDI data of the performer in Cubase.

Re: Can you Change the Tuning of Cubase?

As far as setting A to 432, and also setting the temperament, this would be done in each individual VSTi or synth you are using.

Re: How to find sample key?

Hi sachin22,

for these tasks I use a Tuner-Plugin. You can try Cubase´s "Tuner", e.g.

Melda´s " MTuner " does the job very well, IMHO:

It´s included in Melda´s " FreeEffectBundle " (+all effects are awesome, highly recommend!)
