How do you want to write arrangements for various instruments like, let's say, a string section or a brass section if you don't see the notes for each instrument?
I mean, you can of course arrange everything in your head and just record the parts into the arrange window if you are a genius like Mozart (who mostly had his compositions perfectly ready in his head and just wrote them down)... but for us mere mortals it is much easier and even necessary to see how to distribute all the voices and decide which note goes to which instrument. So, how do you want to compose complex arrangements without the score editor?
I'm taking it seriously but I suspect it's a joke,
REAL musicians, and ordinary, not geniuses like Mozza, have done it for years using nought but a pencil and paper.
God! You'd think nobody wrote music before they invented Cubase score editor!?
Learn how to use a pen and paper. You'll have revelation. You can buy special lined paper too. Looks just like proper music stuff.
It just gets better in here every day. You couldn't make it up.
Oh man... no need to become condescending!
Where did I write that you can compose only with Cubase's score editor?! Such a nonsense.
I spoke about score editors (or their equivalent on paper) in general.
I have used pencil and paper myself, thank you, I don't need your revelations. And if you write that real musicians composed and arranged on paper then they did (and still do it) for exactly the same reason I have mentioned above: one needs to see the various voices in order to better arrange and distribute the notes.
But if you want to work with virtual instruments then I guess pencil and paper won't suffice, don't you think? One needs a sequencer for that. And I think it's more convenient to arrange directly in Cubase than to use an external notation program like Finale or Sibelius (or even write everything on paper) first and then record it in Cubase. That's why I'm interested in some further development of Cubase's score editor.

If I select multiple parts and open them in the score editor, Cubase gives the old "save yourself, women and children first" alert and then slows down to snails pace unless I restart. I've noticed this problem was around in Cubase 4 as well.
Does this happen in 6?

Between you and Vic France I might be able to crack it this time.
I'll keep you posted.

Well, they can't use any actual code from Sibelius, but they are the people who programmed and maintained it since before Avid bought it.curteye wrote:So in a future version of Cubase I'll be back to
