Re: "Right Click" tools menu....can I customize it?

Ah yes, I think that requires a long right mousebutton press. If you keep it pressed you can resize the tool menu. I could be wrong but that's what my memory tells me.

As for customizing it, that would be cool but I don't think so.

Import Settings From Previous Version

It -used- to be that Cubase imported settings from prior versions. I seem to recall that was causing issues during the dark days of SX3/SX4 and perhaps that's why it was stopped. I guess the way it's spun now is that this 'protects' the user from a bad install. Fine.

But we're now many years past that and going from 7.0 to .5 should allow one the -option- to import all settings.

I currently have over 600 plugs on my system. Having to reset the Plug-In info for them all is a pain... not to mention about 100 key commands, umpteen 'preferences', 20 colours, etc...

From what I've seen the file format between .0 and .5 is -not- that much different. But even if it -is-, there's no excuse for not having a decent import option from prior versions. Not in 2013.

The rest of the install system has gotten a LOT better from the old days. This last bit just seems out of place in a 'pro' app circa 2013. In fact, I can't think of another app I use that doesn't import from a previous version... even the 'open source' ones.

It's another not so subtle 'we don't care about backward compatibility' deals. All we care about is new, New, NEW!!!!!! Those old users may grouse a little, but forget 'em. This kind of 'polish' doesn't SELL!

Re: Where is the Acoustic Agent ?

the implementation feels very odd.. why make it different from everything else?

wouldn't it be logical that i can open Groove Agent SE and then, in place of the Beat Designer, load the Acoustic Agent and choose a preset like i do with Beat Designer?
It's so counter-intuitive..

Re: Where is the Acoustic Agent ?

I'm having the same problem. I have installed Cubase Pro 8, I load up Groove Agent Se4, I can see Acoustic Agent and the 21 presets in the media bay/preset browser, but no kits are loaded when I try to click on the presets. I tried re-scanning media bay, re-installing Acoustic Agent. Unfortunately nothing works. Seriously disappointed about this, all the hype about it, and it doesn't even work.

There are no instructions anywhere about how to load Acoustic Agent, and it shouldn't be necessary in any case, it should be obvious.

Re: Where is the Acoustic Agent (MISSING FILES ) ?

This is how I found the Acoustic Agent:
- Open Groove Agent SE
- Click on the preset name on top of the window to open the preset menu
- The default view is "Results" and you can only see the name of individual kits, but you want to see the name of the entire library
- In the lower left corner of the "Results" window you can see an icon, click on it.
- Make sure that "Filters" is selected.
- Now you should see an extra window. Make sure "Attribute" is selected
- Click on the first column header
- Select "Audio Assets"
- Select "Library name"
Now you should see all the drum libraries in the first column, and the individual kits in the right column.

This is where I can see the Acoustic Agent in my Cubase 8 setup.

Greg's new professional Cubase PRO 8 advanced Videos!

Greg's new professional Cubase PRO 8 advanced Videos!

I can recommend everyone to check out Greg's professional Cubase PRO 8 videos.
Greg's videos are always the best videos from Steinberg, focused on the advance user. ;)

For those that don't know who Greg Ondo is. He is a professional Master-Class instructor that represent Steinberg.

I think Greg's videos are always the best videos from Steinberg. Greg Ondo video's are more focused on the advance and professional user. I hope Steinberg would make more video's with him, and make more video's aimed for the advance and professional users.

The standard video's are good too but sometimes the demonstration video's are way to slow and basic.
I think many feel the same as me.

By the way Steinberg, please kill all the background music that plays in the background sometimes in all your video's. The background music is just distracting even though the lately video's of Cubase PRO 8 are far better compare to the old ones. These video's from Greg -"Club Cubase" is a good example of exactly the kind of videos you should make more of! ;)

Re: Cubase 8...Hard on the eyes?

Cubase is looking more and more "childish" IMO. Started with C7 (especially the mixer).

From SX1 all the way to C6/6.5 it looked more and more professional.

Re: Benefits of changing from Win 7 to Win 8.1 and Cubase Pr

We're talking about Cubase and audio performances and you talk about display and resolution !

I recently upgraded from Win7 64bits with Cubase 7.5, to Windows 8.1 and Cubase 8 and everything is just fine. I didn't compare yet the performances though.
I have 3 x 24" monitors including one 3D, one Sony 46" TV Full HD 3D monitor, and a Full HD 3D projector connected to the PC. A total of 5 displays, and my Nvidia Graphics cards are always totaly quite !

If your only concern is Thunderbolt, you can have it on PC. Have a look at Asus motherboards or their extension Thunderlbolt 2 card. This is not a Mac, but an Intel Technology.

And Dell makes some beautiful and affordable 27" and 28" (&+) 4K Monitors.

If you're just looking for a pretext to switch to Mac, this is another story. Wether you like the UI, the design or else, there's nothing wrong with that.

But don't expect to get better performances doing so.

Re: Benefits of changing from Win 7 to Win 8.1 and Cubase Pr

Mac's make no sense really IMO.

I have two huge TV screens here (42") and they are wonderful. Samsung is about to bring out a new PCI SSD 3.2 TB, and some of the motherboards made by Asus and Gigabyte are fantastic. Win 7 is great, stable and fast too. With Mac you get to work in a cul de sac really, a large cul de sac, but its a cul de sac. Feature design of the big sequencers and VSTs often lags behind too, if they support MAC at all.

A lot less for a lot more money does not make sense, but hey if the machine looks sexy... well

Re: Is there a way to see chord track while editing midi?

One potential gottcha is that if the Chord Track is set to automatic scales it can decide that the scale is changing multiple times during a progression - it thinks you are in G Hungarian or whatever for a bar or two. So you might on occasion see a red note ( i.e. not in the scale) because Cubase thinks you are using a different scale than you think you are using. You can either ignore these discrepancies, go with them and explore some different harmonic structures or set the scale manually. Nothing fundamentally right or wrong, just something to be aware of.

I'd be interested in what our more theory evolved members think about what is happening with auto scales.

Re: Suggestion: Make

Ok thank you! Will take into account. Personally the follow Chord track is a bit confusing. Why am I presented with two options? 1. To synchronize first with Chord track and 2. Follow directly. I never got the difference between the two. Personally this tool is more like a filter to me (like in photoshop) when you dont want it, you remove it, and when your happy make the changes final.

Yeah, if you think of it like a Photoshop filter it doesn't work like you'd imagine.

According to the manual (pg 828) Follow Directly is for use when all (or some) of the notes already match the chords. Where Analyze Chords is for when the notes and chords don't have a prior relationship. In practice they both move wrong notes so they are in the chords, although they seem to generate different voicings (sometimes, depending on ???). I just rather arbitrarily picked one to use (Analyze), since the resulting voicings are not predictable as far as I can tell, and I'm gonna change the voicings to what I want anyway. To me it is just a quick way to get to a starting point. I'll use one chord to block out the rhythm and repeat that over the entire part. Then make the part conform to the chord track. After that I can fine tune it in the Key Editor, changing voicings and inserting any non-chord tones I might want etc.

Re: Upgraded to C8....lost sync with SoundCloud >:P

Hey guys,

I can confirm this issue. Our devs are working on it. It won't probably make it to the next update though, but it is definitely in our to do list!

All the best
