Re: Problem: Selecting clip activates solo??

This is definitely some confusion in preferences.

Double click on the clip should open editor of the clip. This is default settings. Try to check your settings.

Try to save your preferences, and after this, try to load default settings. Try to do the same with your Key Commands.

If it doesn't help, try to trash preferences (you should backup it, before trashing).

In the Preferences > Editing, there is Track Selection Follows Event Selection. Is it check? I didn't find, which combination of Preferences > Editing > Project & MixConsole could repeat your behaviour, but maybye, some can.

Re: Controlling Image-Line GrossBeat from Cubase

Re: Cubase Pro 8 don't remember VST Outs

Hi,

Are you using Studios (Control Room)? The Monitor 1 from the Studios, should be your main output. If you connect the same audio port to the Monitor 1 and Output bus, the Monitor 1 is always kept.

Since Cubase 8.0.20, this is new - Control Rool is not overwritten by Output buses anymore.

Re: Importing old cubase songs (From VST versions)

Hi,

This is an interesting question. But I'm afraid, the answer is "no", on Mac. Not because of Cubase 8, but because of eLicenser Control Center.

Fact 1) The latest eLCC, you can install on Mac OS X 10.6 is 6.7.1.8151.
Fact 2) The elCC 6.7.1.8151 was released July 14th, 2014.
Fact 3) The very first Cubase 8 licence was generated after July 2014, so Cubase 8 licence is "Unknown licence" for eLCC 6.7.1.8151.
Fact 4) You can't upgrade your Mac OS X. 10.6 is the latest one with the Rosetta.

So on Mac OS X 10.6 the eLCC doesn't recognize your Cubase 8 licence, and on newer version of Mac OS X, you can't run Cubase SX (because of Rosetta). I'm sorry, I can't see any solution for Mac users.

On Windows, it should works.

Re: Midi question!

Hi,

Yes, it works the way, you described. You can select two MIDI parts and display them in the editor at once. Then, you can select, which MIDI part is an "active" one, where you want to write a notes. Once you click to the Note of any MIDI part, the "active" part changes to this part, where you clicked. To go back "melody" part, you can just click to any Note from the "melody" part. Or, you can use a Part selector from to tool bar.

On the left side beside the MIDI Part selector, you can find another one usefull tool: work in active part only (sorry I'm not sitting in front of Cubase now, I don't know the exact term). This would be usefull for you.

Re: Selecting midi clips jumps to start in key editor

Yes, I can confirm this.

I will just correct your reproduction which is not clear in some points:
- Add two MIDI tracks.
- On every single MIDI track, create a MIDI part. Every MIDI part will start on different position.
- Open the KeyEditor of one of the MIDI part.
- Set the Cursor (playback head) to different position, than 1.1.1.0.
- Leave the KeyEditor open, and select the second MIDI part in the Project window.
=> KeyEditor view jumps to the beginning of the currently select MIDI part, not to the position of cursor.

The workoround, I'm using is: pres "F" key twice onyour computer keyboard, in the KeyEditor, to disable, and enable Auto-Scroll. Thanks to this, the KeyEditor view jumps to the Cursor position.

Re: Activating Cubase Pro 8 for Mac from Cubase 4

Hi,

Yes, you can take your USB-eLicenser from your PC to Mac, and update your Cubase 4 licence to the Cubase 8 licence. It doesn't matter, if you will activate this update licence on your PC or Mac.

And your second question. Yes, BUT... In theory, you are allowed to use Cubase 4 application with your Cubase 8 licence. But you should update your eLCC application. If you will not update the eLCC, it's possible the Cubase 8 licence will be not recognised, and will be displayed as "Unknown licence" on the system with the old eLCC (so then, you can't run your Cubase on this system, because there is no known licence). Now, the tricky part is: which Windows do you use? If you are using Windows 8 or Windows 7, then it's not problem at all (you will just update eLCC to the latest version: 6.9.1.1173 at this moment). But if you are using Windows XP, the newest eLCC is not officially compatible with Windows XP. So it's possible, it will not work. Then, you could try to install the latest eLCC on your Windows XP (and hope, it works), or you can keep the latest Win XP eLCC version, and hope, this version will recognise Cubase 8 licence. If you are using Win XP (I hope not), then I would recommend to try to update your eLCC before you activate your Cubase 8 Upgrade, and check, if the eLCC has been installed, and work as expected. If yes, then I would upgrade the licence.

Sorry for the long story... ;-)

Yes, you can move your MixConsole window to another virtual Desktop. It works at the moment, you setup it.But once you save and reopen your project, all of your windows are back on the current Desktop, and you have to arrange it once again.It's the same with Workspaces. The Workspaces system can't recognize another virtual desktop. So if you are using it, it always puts all windows to the currently active Desktop. But I would say, this is general Windows issue.

Re: Halion and Groove Agent - automated program changes?

Hi,

In HALion Sonic, it's in-between. On the Options page, there is also Program Change part, where you can select:
- Off
- GM
- Multi Mode.

The Multimode means, you can switch between Multi-sounds, you prepare, by using Program Change MIDI CC. You can use up to 128 Multis (all Program Changes) and every single Multi can contain up to 16 sounds. These sounds could be as layers (on one MIDI Channel), or as separated sounds (every single sound is controlled from different MIDI Channel. So you could have up to 2.048 different sounds.

I haven't found any "Program Change" in the Groove Agent 4 (or SE 4) manual. There is an option to load Previous/Next Program (i.e. sound), and you can use your own KeyCommand. So if you will create perfectly named sounds (I would recommend to use numbers) in the wanted order, then you could switch these sounds by using the KeyCommand. These KeyCommands are in both Groove Agent 4 and Groove Agent SE 4. You can find it under the OPTIONS page > Global part > Key Commands button. The KeyCommand, I'm talking about, is under the Global folder.

Re: Midi/instrument track

OK, now it's clear. The single one MIDI Note from Cubase triggers whole arpeggio loop from Alchemy. So you have to edit the Alchemy arpeggio (if it is possible at all).

If there is no option, Cubase could help you. Use Render-InPlace. This will convert your loop to the Audio. Then, you can cut unwanted sound from the beginning (if to loop allows it).

Re: record groove agent into track

Hi,

Just to make sure, we are talking about the same... You did the pattern in the Beat Designer, and as a tone generator, you are using Groove Agent VSTi, right?

So, open the Beat Designer. Find the "virtual Keyboard" on it. Click the light-grey key (where is your pattern stored), and drag-and-drop it to the Instrument track, where your Groove Agent is. Done.

Or, you don't need to do this, and you can just create another pattern in the Beat Designer, which will be stored on the other key, and then just trigger these patterns by sending corresponding MIDI notes from the MIDI track. This way, you can trigger up to 48 patterns (12 notes in a octave, times 4 octaves).

Set your main output hear (i.e. Line Out 1 & Line Out 2, or whatever you are using). Now, you can hear the song from the Sample Editor.

Re: Cubase 8 pro vst output problems???

So I've noticed since upgrading, pro 8 has more options/tabs in f3( vst options) than in elements which only has inputs and outputs. I can't activate both the "audio outputs" AND " studio outputs" to my interface/L and R Speakers. So some audio such as the metranome clicks I can't hear when the audio outputs are not connected, and when the studio outputs are not connected I can't hear others forms of audio such as media bay previewing. Its very annoying and I know both audio and studio outputs can work at the same time because they work fine in Cubase elements together. Is there a way I can activate both the Studio and the Audio outputs to my interface/ main L/R????? Please help.

Hi and welcome,

Cubase Elements shouldn't have VST Connections > Studios. There should be Inputs and Outputs only. Are you sure, you are not running Cubase 8 Pro Trial?

In Cubase Pro, your main output should be Monitor 1 . All "Preview" outputs (like Preview from MediaBay, Import Audio, Sample Editor, etc.) are routed to this bus. If you are using Cubase Elements (and you really have Inputs and Outputs only), you should use Stereo Out, as your main output.

Re: How To Use The KONTAKT AUX Effects In Cubase

Hi,

You can do it exactly the same way, what he did on the video. But he is not using NI Kontakt Reverb, he is using internal Digital performer Reverb. So it's the same, like to use for example REVerence in Cubase.

Unfortunately NI Kontakt doesn't work as VST (FX), so you can't use it as an Audio Insert effect. If it would be possible, then you could use internal NI Kontakts Reverb to any audio signal. but, you can use for example NI Reaktor, like this. So you can use effects from NI Reaktor, to process any Audio signal. I don't know, maybe, there is the same Convolution Reverb in Reaktor, which is also in Kontakt.

There would be a way, how to use the Kontakt Convolution, but it's very uncomfortable. Export your Instrument/Audio track as an Audio (WAV). Open NI Kontakt, and drag-and-drop this WAV to the Kontakt as a sample. Then you can apply internal NI Kontakt Convolution on it, and trigger the "loop" by the "middle" MIDI Note.

But again, you can do exactly the same, what is shown on the video, in Cubase.

Re: Cubase not recording midi note off

Hi,

Common way is, that the MIDI Keyboard sends all data on the MIDI Channel 1. There are use-case, when it makes sense to send MIDI data on different MIDI Channel, but I think it's not necessary in your case.

Cubase can handle with it anyway. If you set specific MIDI Channel in your MIDI/Instrument track, all data are transfered (forced) to this MIDI Channel. If you set MIDI Channel to "Any", then Cubase sends data on the exact MIDI Channel, which is written in the track (your case MIDI Channel 4).

In any case, Roland has to send MIDI Note Off by using exactly the same channel, where the MIDI Note On was sent. If not, Cubase (or another MIDI Device) would not to switch the Note Off (it's just another message).

So I would recommend to setup your Roland to the common settings, to send all MIDI data on MIDI Channel 1 only. There is maybe something like factory settings. It is definitely very strange, there is different Channel, depending on the MIDI Note length.

Re: MIDI editing question

Hi,

It depends, how do you cut the MIDI Part. If you use the Split tool (doesn't matter, if you select the tool, or use Object Selection + Alt modifier), then the DESTRUCTIVE cut is done. So the Note is really lost.

But, if you use the small squares to change the length of the MIDI Part, this is NON-destructive cut, and the MIDI Note is still inckuded in the Part. So then, you can copy (or duplicate) the event (with hidden Note, which is over the grid), and then again extend all MIDI Parts to show the Note(s), which are over the grid).

Does it work to you?

Re: Latency setting priority

Hi,

In general, the latency and the buffer size is the same. If you decrease the buffer size, also latency is decreased, and vice versa. The latency is the time (in ms), which the system needs to process the signal. This is the delay between the input, and output (to-/from the sound card).

The buffer size is size of blocks, which can be processed at once. If your buffer size is higher (the block is bigger), the time needed to fill it, is longer. But then it is process at once.

So the praxis is to decrease the Buffer Size during the recording, to decrease the latency time. Once all tracks are recorded, we increase the Buffer Size, which increase the latency, but we don't care any more, during editing. Thanks to this, we can use more plug-ins without dropping-out of the sound.

Re: Latency setting priority

Hi,

thank you. This is the most important sentence for you: "The size of the audio buffers affect both the latency and the au- dio performance." So the Buffer SIze is the main parameter, which affects the latency. Some soundcards allow you to set the latency (because this is more from the USER point of view; users don't care about the buffer size, they want to set the latency, and the don't care, what is behind it).

It is the same on Mac and on Windows. The only one difference is, on Mac, you can control the Buffer Size directly from Cubase (btw this option is not in current Cubase anymore, you always have to go to the Control Panel of the soundcard).

Re: Latency setting priority

Hi,

I would recommend to record the signal without any FX. Of course, you can use it as a monitor FX, for the better feeling during the recording. So you can apply these FX as an Insert on the recorded Audio track. But please, don't apply them directly to the Input Bus (Channel). Probably it wasn't your idea, to apply it to the Input Channel, but it's better to mentione this.

Settings of the Buffer Size doesn't affect the signal quality at all. If you can hear crackles, and pops, these are not in the recorded signal.

Re: Link two or more tracks together and edit automation?

Hi,

if you apply the parameter, you want to automate, on the Group Channel, then you can automate it on the Group Channel, and both (or more) tracks are affected.

But you cannot "link" two or more parameters from different tracks, and automate them at once.

Re: Elements 8 won't install on Yosemite.

Hi,

The Start Center is using flash. Please, make sure, you have the latest flash update. Or just skip the Start Center, open the Mac folder, and run the installation from the DMG file.

Re: Elements 8 won't install on Yosemite.

Hi,

You should be able to install Cubase Elements 8 directly, without the "Steinberg Application Installer Tool". The issue, which the "Steinberg Application Installer Tool" fixes, is already implemented in the installer of Cubase Elements 8.

What exactly does it men, the installer didn't work, please? Any message? Could you describe the symptoms, please?

Re: trigger 'record' using sostenuto pedal - possible?

I see, sorry.

Yes, you can. Open Devices > Device Setup. On the top-left, click the + button, and select Generic Remote Device, from the list.

Set Input MIDI Port, and click Apply. On the right side, enable MIDI Learn. Select the 1st line in the upper part, and send the MIDI data (Sostenuto Pedal). The MIDI message in the 1st line changes. In the bottom sheet, select the 1st line, and set Command > Transport > Record.

Now, you can use the MIDI controller, to enable the Record.

Does it work to you?

Re: Stereo Delay FX Bus issue

Hi,

It's hard to guess. Could you attach a screenshot of the MixConsole with the Routing, Sends and Direct Routing panels open?

Re: Only 12 midi Keys!!

Hi,

This is very often on the keyboard side. Make sure, you didn't change the settings of your keyboard. Very often it's mainly zones changes (some zones don't send the signal to the USB output, but to MIDI - or internal - only; or something like this...).

Re: Cannot create record file and muted audio events

Hi,

"special Permissions" doesn't sound very common to me. :-) You should definitely enable Write Permissions.

Re: Import Audio With No Changes...

Hi,

There is a Misical Mode set on this Audio event. If this is enabled, the audio loop always matches to the tempo. Switch the Musical Mode to the Linear Mode in the Info View (after selecting the audio event) or in the Pool.

Re: Help with the control room please..

Hi Kevin,

For the Talkback mic, you have to use the dedicatedTalkback bus, which you can find in the VST Connections > Studio > Add Bus. The Talkback bus us an [b]input[/[b] bus, not the output. So select the Input, where is your mic connected to.

Then, it should work as expected, I would guess.

Re: Disappearing mixdowns

Hi,

If you moved the source WAV file, Cubase cannot find it anymore. Then you have to search for them. You should always keep the source files on the place. You can copy them, of course.

So even if I back up the project ten times they all still refer to the original source file?..blimey!!
I thought they would be saved in the project audio folder..

is this correct..?

No, if you Backup the project, new Audio folder is created, and events refer to this new sources.

Re: using Cubase VST's in another program..

Hi,

No, this is not possible. If you want to use HALion Sonic in another DAW, you could buy HALion Sonic 2 (HALion Sonic SE is part of Cubase) or HALion 5. The same is for Groove Agent 4, which is possible to use in other DAWs, and you can buy it as a separated product (Groove Agent SE is part of Cubase), or Padshop Pro (Padshop is part of Cubase), etc.

Re: cycle record (MIDI) with pre-roll for each stacked?

Hi,

You are right, it works like this. Only the first cycle takes the pre-roll in account. You didn't miss anything. ;-)
