Hi Xtigma,

click on the name of the Instrument, a pop-up window will open where you can change the instrument. You have to select "No VST Instrument" to remove the one selected.

Re: Track versions are not moved with arranger track

Yes. It appears Flatten only modifies the active version. BUT. It's complicated.

It appears also that the Arranger track has versions, even though it's not documented and, doesn't have a TrackVersions tab in the inspector.

try this repro:
- New project, Arranger Track, Midi Track
- select Midi track, create new version
- select both the Arrange track and midi track
- switch to the other version

Cubase will say "This track version does not exist on these selected tracks: -Arranger Track".

- Use either of the options, Duplicate or New Empty, it will to add a version to the arranger track, but of course there is no where to see this.

-- You can test it though, by adding an event to the arranger track and invoking "Previous Track Version" and "Next Track version" with only the Arranger track selected.

Switching between and adding versions appears to work; but Cubase eventually quits unexpectedly after this activity continues for a short time.

Re: CPU Usage

It's based on overall "ASIO performance" which is based on Cubase's ability to "schedule audio packets" across available CPU cores.

Enabling ASIO Guard helps in most cases. ASIO Guard is similar (speculation) to Logic's "hybrid" audio engine. Basically, some sort of pre-rendering happens to tracks that aren't "live / real-time."

Increasing the audio interface's buffer is the main way to improve this. Latency is the tradeoff.

The job a "audio buffer (packet) scheduling" is a complex one that all DAWs do slightly differently. It's a tradeoff of raw latency vs. ability to splits up the job across more cores.

Factors in the signal chain such as "serial" vs "parallel" chains, factor in. Live effects on the stereo bus are usually examples of the "serial chain" and tend to be the hardest to split up across cores, for most DAWs. Reaper being the exception.

Individual VSTi channels, that feed into the stereo bus, are often examples of "parallel" chains for some DAW (notably, Sonar). They can often be split across cores more easily (again, Sonar works this way).

The Reaper DAW is an example of a DAW that does the most aggressive "slicing up" of the scheduled audio packets across all cores, and is why it will utilize the most of a CPU of all the DAWs (and therefore most closely matches the Task Manager meters).

Cubase, especially with the new ASIO Guard, probably comes in second place.

As ASIO Guard improves, the VST performance meter will start to more closely match the Windows Task Manager meter.

Re: What is the difference between Block events / separate e

Manual p. 169:

• As Separate Events
This is the default setting. One or more tracks are created. These contain
separate events/parts that are saved as separate audio files.
• As Block Event
One or more tracks are created. These contain adjacent events/parts that are combined to blocks where applicable. Every block is saved as a separate audio file."

Blocks will make one audio file/clip out of any clips that are adjacent. If there's space between the orginal clips, "Block event" will preserve that space.

Re: Hidden Cubase 8 features!

Now you can disable Instrument Tracks, which makes it easier to use large templates.

Re: Hidden Cubase 8 features!

Have you noticed that the Inspector in the Project window is now scrollable? :)
