Re: Cubase 7.5 MAGNETO II sounds wonderful!

wasn't the post "THANK YOU STEINBERG!! Cubase 7 and Cubase 7.5 are amazing!!!" enough to express your appreciation for Cubase 7.5? do you plan to raise the bar by creating a dedicated post for each new feature?
Leave the frikkin' guy alone, will you..? For chrissakes... he's happy ..!! He's making music, he likes his cubase, he's thanked SB, he's a bit excited and he's happy..! That's it. Deal with it... jeez..

You can just walk past if you do see another great FreddieH post, can't you..?

If only some more had done so, in his other thread too, instead of continually weighing in and just trampling all over it, with the result of it being locked.

Go Freddie..!! (oh, and go for those emoticons, like you used to - it doesn't harm anyone, and you are the ONLY person who does it here; we should know the drill by now; its just a FreddieH thing - its what makes FreddieH, FreddieH..!)

Re: APL peaks at starting up C7

I see this every time here too; no idea why. I notice it will also show randomly whilst working on a project, again for no reason it seems. I've not loaded anything else, mainly working in audio, done a little editing, maybe some plugin tweaking - the same work that NEVER sent this meter running into red on C6.5

Sorry, I've no clue.

Key Editor improvements

See here how the Track Tools at right of screen (scroll down to third screenshot), could help enormously if implemented in Cubase's Key Editor, when working with multiple MIDI tracks simultaneously (in one Key Editor window...)
http://forum.cakewalk.com/X3here-it-isfor-real-Sept-28th-ship-date-wow-m2892317-p8.aspx#2893478

A good start (and possibly easy/quick to implement) in Cubase would be to simply add colour-coding visual alongside the corresponding track listings in the Drop-Down selector at top of screen (where you choose which track to display/edit). (See second screen-shot from above link).

Re: Sample Editor "Half-Level Axis"....

Well, In the open Sample Editor when I right click over the sample (wave) it's at the bottom of the list -- In Preferences/Editing/Tools "Pop-up toolbox on Right Click" is off = no tick

I noticed it while searching for the now non existent grid for Free Warp.
Ah..! Interesting; I just went to look again after reading your reply - yep, its there. Nice.

(and of course, if you hold down CTRL key whilst right-clicking - with 'toolbox popup' enabled in preferences - you get the full menu context list, with the 'Show Half-Levels' item right at the bottom).

(oh, and the grid for FreeWarp, we are told, is definitely coming back in the 7.5.20 update due around April..!) ;)

Re: grouping missed feature!!!

i used to be a protools user and i moved to cubase 2 years and i like it so much...there's a feature i like in protools which is when u r grouping 2 or more tracks(with volume automation on all these grouped tracks) when u change the volume of one track of the group, the volume of all the other tracks get changed too according to the one u r changing.. .in cubase when theres automation, even if u r in group or link mode, only the track u r working on is affected... this feature is very useful especially when u r mixing and u want to bring down the volume of the whole mix or the faders of all tracks in the mix...

Working fine, if you open the Automation panel and activate 'Trim' mode - then, as you move one fader, the others will adjust in a relative fashion (thats, relative to each other - exactly what I believe you're asking for. ;-))

Good luck..!

Re: Tab to Transient

Hi everyone,
I'm demo-ing Cubase 7.5 on my system. I am an experienced Cubase 6.5 user running it OS X Mountain Lion.
I was trying out the new 'Tab To Transient' feature on an audio track.
And while I noticed that the transients were displayed, when I hit 'Tab', I ended up cycling through the menus on the Inspector Window instead of transients on the audio track itself.

The only way that I could get it to behave like ProTools was using 'Go To Next Hitpoint' and 'Go To Previous Hitpoint' and the respective key commands which are Opt+N and Opt+B . (which worked great, of course)

Did I misunderstand that 'Tab To Transient' is not literally done using 'Tab'? Or is there some setting I'm missing.. Or is it just not in the demo version?

Thanks in advance,

Jon
This is the way to go..!

(Your misunderstanding is correct; that the interpretation of 'Tab to Transient' in Cubase is not literally done using the [Tab] key) ;)

Re: feature request

There will be more drum kits and also style expansion packs for Groove Agent. And Jazz is definitely on our list.
Please Matthias, you must add some Nashville/Country styles and kits/beats/patterns to that list. You guys have friends in Nashville running Nuendo/Cubase at some great studios. If commissioned, they would surely love to help out, capturing some performances/sounds from some fantastic pro players out there... what do you think..?

Like the Jazz styles already mentioned, I'm convinced there's a sizeable market for (modern/trad) 'Country music', throughout Europe and the UK for example. As well as more of the USA itself maybe..! ;-)

Re: Variaudio Note Value Not Showing

...but i must say one of the most annoying and fiddly things i have found so far on Cubase is the way to add silence up to bar one on tracks ready for export.

With Pro-tools and also Sonar X3 i was using, it's simply drag the track out in the project window to bar one- as far as i can see from reading the manual and searching the web, you have to draw in silence, then glue it together to the original track, then bounce to tracks to achieve this in Cubase 7.5! What's that all about? Why Steinberg haven't made this a simple drag function like most other DAW's beats me.
Hey FunkyOne335 - You can achieve the same quite quickly in Cubase:-
Move your part(s) on a track forward one bar, then ensure the Left Locator is set to 'zero' bar. Your Right Locator can be wherever you want. Next, you can (solo the track and) export to get that 'extra' bars silence.

Or, you could use the Range tool (very powerful and quick) to highlight an area/length and use Bounce Selection to get a new file that's ready in The Pool (audio folder of the project) to import straight into PTools - quicker than drawing/gluing/bouncing etc.

Good luck,
Bob

Re: VST connect SE

Hi - as I understand it, you need a key from the person you are connecting to (the one who has the full VST Connect SE or Pro software). They are the ones who are setting up the session, and a key is generated for the 'Performer' (you..!) to enter in the Performer app that uniquely establishes a connection to the session.

They can send you notice of the key via email or a txt (SMS message)I guess.

Hope that helps.

Re: Vari Audio 2 - It has ground breaking potential


Is it possible to select mutiple mono vocal tracks and enter the Vari2 multitrack editor?

Yes. If I'm understanding correctly, you either analyse the tracks individually and then select all and double-click on one; or, select all the tracks and double-click to open the sample editor and run VA within. Each track gets its own colour code. Is that what you wanted..?

Re: Creating a New session...

Well I figured out how to save under Productions and then "Create" a new session, but when I do that, it doesn't retain the title I saved the session as. Say I title the session "This Song", when the Project window is up and running, the title of the session is "Untitled1". Question is why didn't it save as "This Song"?

In order to save it according to the title I want, I have to do a Save As.

In Pro Tools, when you start a new session, I save the session, and it retains the title, etc...
Again, when you're loading 'This Song' from one of those categories as you do, it is only loading as a 'starting' template for your new project. Then, as you say, you need to do a 'save as' with your new working title; it is just the way it works Dean. There have been requests to get it to work more like PTools - but architecturally, this may be a very involved/major project to re-code.

Re: Render In Mono

Hi Stephan - have a read up on the new 'Direct Routing' facility introduced at C8. Not at my machine for now, and not entirely sure of all its capabilities, but it allows routing to several destinations at once. So, if you set up one 'dummy' mono output in the VST Connections, add the DR (pointing to the dummy out) to those tracks you want as mono and batch export (choosing the dummy output).

This should save having to fuss with re-routing and/or setting the mono downmix in the Export Dialog, then re-routing back to how you had things, etc...

(Just thought, different routing in/outputs would be a neat addition to Track Versions capabilities...)

Anyway, I think I've got that right... I may have missed a detail or two... please, don't shoot me..!

It might help...

Good luck,

Re: ControlRoom Cue Fader Cap Color changes

Hold down a modifier (CTRL..? ALT..?) whilst clicking on each Cue to open more than one at a time... Its like that in the Inspector sections/tabs too, try it..! Then, with several sections open, you can also try out the new mousewheel 'scroll' ability... Be careful; only really works nice when the mouse pointer is on the 'blank' areas around the fader for example.

If you have the Inserts and Sends open too, and you place the mouse over the sends section to try a 'scroll', you probably only end up adjusting actual send level settings themselves..! Scroll doesn't seem to work at all if the mouse pointer is over the Inserts section; So, bit hit and miss...

And finally, this applies to the MixConsole (if you've chosen the option Show Exclusive, or something like that... the modifier will handily override) as well.

You've a fun packed Sunday ahead of you... :-)

Oh, and sorry, back on topic - I've not seen ANY colour shifting/changing with the fader caps over here, ever..!

Good luck.!

Re: Cubase 6.5 the fastest and trouble-free Cubase?

Historically, it could be argued that Cubase 6.5.x was/is so good, because you have to look at where it came from. It took around 6 years of constant development and improvement to get to where it ended up (from the release of the then 'brand new' Cubase 4 codebase, 2006). July 2013 was when the final C6.5.5 shipped.

Compare to:-
- Cubase 7 series, the next new 'major shift' architecturally, took around a couple of years to get to where it was broadly considered 'rock solid', 'stable', 'reliable', in the marketplace etc, etc...

- Cubase 8 (building on the C7 series code), with its audio engine re-write, PC windows management/handling improvements (never before tackled) and other stuff, has been with us barely 8 weeks/40 working days, minus the Xmas/New Year holiday period.

My point.? Give it another year or so before Cubase 8.x.x is as worthy as or valid of being talked about/remembered/cherished/relied upon, as fondly as C6.x.x

IMO

Bob

PS:- having said all that, I'm perfectly happy at 7.5 and have no need for C6 any more; another update I reckon, before the move proper to C8 for me.

Re: 8.0.10 is here

Oh great... this hasn't been fixed: http://www.steinberg.net/forums/viewtopic.php?f=231&t=75763

Did they "forget" about restoring this once properly working thing...?

:evil:

This highlights the point I was trying to make. The date on the confirmed issue is Feb 21 2015. The date of the build is Feb 22 2015. :lol:

It's not getting fixed in a day from being assigned to a developer, much less being confirmed on the public-facing forum.

This is why I think it's good for Steinberg to continue the good practice of keeping the Collected Issues forum up to date.

Why waste valuable criticism airtime on bugs not humanly possible to fix, in such a short time, when there are so many other bugs and features that deserve the spotlight that have been outstanding for years.
And you're 'laughing-out-loud' at what exactly..? The build date on my machine for the v8.0.10 update reads JANUARY 22 2015. A month before the issue was confirmed. And, as Steve already said, he'd responded in that thread anyway - that it wouldn't make the 8.0.10 release.

Re: Elastic Audio Varispeed equivalent in Nuendo?

Hi - you want to stretch/lengthen/shorten clips and have them behave like a varispeed (tape deck).

As 'Likelystory' says, many ways to actually perform the 'stretch' - BUT as he also implied, you need to choose your algorithm type, first..! So, look under Audio processing and functions -> Pitch Shift or TimeStretch (page 404 - 412 in Cubase manual). Then, page 424 (in the Cubase manual, don't have Nuendo), for explainations about all the different time/pitch shift algorithms available - 'Elastique' is the one you want, with the 'Tape' mode in particular.

Once you've chosen your algorithm, this is what will be used when you apply the 'Sizing Applies Timestretch' method from the arrow tool for instance.

Hope that helps,

Re: M-audio Delta 1010lt and Cubase Window selection.

Hi Jeff - I have the exact same card; no solutions to either I'm afraid. This is just the way it is. One learns to just get on with it...

My view has been its M-Audio's job to update the driver/panel package to allow better DAW or audio app (wavelab) integration. But really..? Forget it - its just not going to happen. This is effectively legacy kit now.

I might be right in thinking Studio One for example works better; but its because their whole architecture in this regard is quite different. Again, I don't think it can call up the 1010 driver control panel, but it can talk to (and take control of) it directly from within the DAW. Nice.

But hey, whatever; you've got a great card/driver there - and, welcome to the heady world of Cubase PRO (version 8)..!

Re: How do I create my own drum loop

Hi.

No I gave up but intend to have another go soon. It all seems so ridiculous to me. I don't want to draw anything, I want to play it with as little computer involvement as possible. I should be able to start a click track to loop over or or 2 bars and then tap a keypad to enter a drum. Simple as that. All the other stuff is great if you want it but I don't.

Very frustrating
Curious... have you got through this yet delboy007..? Given the above, I would look to the manual for MIDI Recording modes and methods, if you're still in need of assistance.

In essence:-
1. set up the Left and Right Locators for bar length(s) and set tempo
2. Add Instrument Track (Groove Agent One..?)
3. Arm track to record
4. Set Cycle mode to On
5. Press record - (oh, turn on the click too).

Away you go..!

Now, with each pass/cycle you can record your kick, snare, hats etc, separately, building your pattern as you go.

Re: Safe Start Mode & Render In Place Not Working

Thanks Martin. I have looked into the folder/file path before, but was hoping that there as a much more constructive solution. Trashing the folder and starting again should not be an option, certainly not for a so-called Pro product.
Its the start in a systematic process of elimination, towards a solution. Often times it has directly helped; perhaps gone on to aid identifying a more full solution (problematical 3rd party plugin for example).

And, your original preferences folder/files remains perfectly intact should you want to revert to (parts of) it. If indeed your entire preferences have become badly corrupted, losing months of careful tweaks and customisation, maybe a System Restore may help (if you are on Windows - you don't provide any system specs; I'll take a guess you are though, when you say CTRL+ALT+DEL..! ;-))..?

HTH,

I watched this the other day - a good and informative seminar from Pete Brown and guests (Propellerheads, Bitwig). The comments section underneath is also worth a read through - not only because, Pete Brown himself responds quite candidly to many of the points posted. Some interesting stuff.

Bottom line, the audio improvements are WASAPI/WDM based of course; this means diddly squat for ASIO users. Steinberg are the only ones in control of that protocol.

MIDI improvements on Win 10 will be interesting going forward, as Class Compliant drivers from 3rd parties, eventually get updated (i.e. Yamaha, with their UR series of hardware...)

VariAudio 2.x.x - your ideas here please

Thought it was time I carried this over from the C7 Feature Request forum:-

(original thread - http://www.steinberg.net/forums/viewtopic.php?f=182&t=39022)

1. Can the Info readout/detail that displayed INSIDE the segments, be returned please..? They are gone from C7. I found this info to be useful right there where you need it (when zoomed in large enough etc...).
NB:- Info Line readout is too small/indistinct/inadequate at present. Too much eyeball movement back and forth to where you are actually working on screen.
EDIT:- A Tooltip appearing as you move segments, would cover this item - as stated in Manual - but, is currently not working. See - http://www.steinberg.net/forums/viewtopic.php?f=184&t=45748 for detail

2. 'Acoustic Feedback' improvements - See Melodyne when clicking/holding/moving blobs - the 'note' sounds indefinitely; you hear what you are doing as you move, drag, pitch up or down the 'note' blobs; very nice, very useful.

3. Ability to adjust the individual note (segment) AMPLITUDES, again, just like in Melodyne (an extra mouse tool..?).

4. Increase the pitch range that VariAudio detects, above (and below..?)
http://www.steinberg.net/forums/viewtopic.php?f=175&t=39349

5. Be able to set center frequency (A=440, 442, 445, etc,)
http://www.steinberg.net/forums/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=26547
http://www.steinberg.net/forums/viewtopic.php?f=182&t=57019

6. Attack/Release slider (for smoother/better control over note transition)

Re: Comp Meters next to Channel Volume Meters

They have this built-in already - unfortunately, only visible in the meter bridge in the MixConsole. Enable that, and you will see... Its a shame they can't/haven't been able to bring this to the Channel meters yet... I have requested it before (Cubase user here..!).

BTW - see how elegantly this works in Studio One; and the way they've made an SDK extension available to 3rd parties, so others can take advantage of the functionality too... For example, FabFilters new Pro C2 (vst3 editions only) works, just like the stock Presonus comp (on an insert). I don't have it myself... just reading off KVR folks posts..

It looks like a useful visual cue, so,

Re: Link audio channels from within Project windows

Hello,

It would be great to select several audio tracks in the Project window, right-click and select Link Channels from the menu. Currently, as you know, we can do this only by opening the Mixer window, then scrolling God knows where to the right while attempting to find the selected audio channels (what fun when you have 250 audio tracks!) and Linking the channels from there.

Thank you!

Alex

Re: Horizontal zoom while moving mouse on the ruler

Well, I use G and H keyboard shortcuts to zoom in and out horizontally, so zooming while dragging the mouse on the ruler isn't in the game for me :) And I've been using Cubase since version 1 this way. When I move mouse on the ruler, I don't do that because I want to "move to another area of the project." I do this to locate the Play Pointer / Locator to a very precise point within a Project when I score a film. I look at the video, zoom in very close and then move the mouse back and forth on the ruler to find a precise frame of the video which I need to address a certain way. Now, if I do this and the Project suddenly starts to zoom in and out, that's something that messes up the process of me looking for that one precise point in the video. So I'm sorry mate, but I've got a good point here.

Now that I said that, I've just remembered that there is a switch for this function in Preferences / Transport / Zoom while Locating in Time Scale. Problem solved 8-)
Ah..! Ok, got ya - you are already zoomed in very close, and want to position the playhead, WITHOUT further zoom 'annoyance'..!

Glad you included your last paragraph - as that was what I would have next suggested... :)

All is good..

Re: Freeze Markers Track at Top When Scrolling Up and Down?

Yes. Look up 'Track Divider' in the manual (not at my machine right now...). Its a button at the top right corner of the Track List, near the ruler/timeline if I remember correctly, in the Arrange window (really tiny - very easy to miss if you don't know its there..!).

It will split the track list view, so you can have whatever you want in the 'top' pane stay put, whilst you scroll away in the 'bottom' pane - exactly what you're looking for... ;-)

Re: I've never seen this before!

Thanks Richard Herbert, for your vote of confidence... :-)

@Billow - yes, that is what happens when you use the Glue Tool on Events. You turn the glued Events into an Audio Part, that contains the Events. Double-click on this to open the Audio Part editor (not the Sample Editor), where you can do all sorts of editing on the individual events inside the Part.

If you want to merge (glue) things together and keep them as Events, then use Range Selection to cover the whole of the events/length you want to create and then Audio ->Bounce Selection. This will result in one new Event being made (on which you can use those fade handles). You'll be able to choose to 'Replace' the range in your live project, or 'No' to just make a new file that appears in the Pool only, that you may want to use for other purposes. This way, it'll leave your original range selection intact in the project.

The manual is your friend... ;-) Just saying...

Re: VariAudio - No more Ctrl key please

I just upgraded to N7 and after looking for a while in Nuendo, I came looking here for the solution. Did Steinberg really get rid of this? If so please let it snap to the nearest semitone again without a modifier!

Dean
In Cubase, have a try out in here, see what combo you like...

preferences1.jpg

These are my settings, not default. With these, if I just click and move a segment up/down slightly (no modifier), the segment will snap to the nearest note, whichever direction I moved it...

(Reading previous posts above, I now don't know what happened to the 'double-click' - seems that's gone; maybe just me though..? but whatever, with 'Absolute Pitch Snapping' assigned to 'none', I can just click and move and the snap happens).

HTH..!

Re: A open plea to Steinberg... again....

Personally, I am very happy with what they've posted. It's en excellent step forward in having a dialogue with the users. My personal favourites, which I would LOVE to see implemented are:

1. Parameter Undo/redo history for MixConsole
2. VariAudio editing for multiple audio clips in one Sample Editor window to edit in context

What I would probably put at the top of the list for ME would be further development for Eucon controllers but I recognise that this is probably a minority interest so I won't have a tantrum because it's not on the list.

Nice move from Steinberg as far as I'm concerned.
I agree - this has to be viewed positively; come on guys... ;)

I don't think their list in that survey is an either/or situation; they're not going to work on the results of that to the exclusion of all else..!! . For example, the things @noiseboyuk wants looking at will be attended to alongside those bigger ticket items, which will take us up to years end with the release of C Pro 9.

(That's my belief anyway - perhaps a word from SB along those lines would calm any further backlash..?)

As noted above by @westwoodi, the bug-fix list on the 'Collected Issues' page, if fully addressed, should cover a good deal of the most recent complaints of performance, window handling, broken/bad implementation of VCA's, etc, etc.
I do not in any way expect that list to be ignored/forgotten/postponed in the shorter term.

Cheers,
Bob

Re: A open plea to Steinberg... again....

What needs to happen is that every single person who is concerned about Cubase's falling behind in the CPU utilization department and/or other issues regarding big fixes/optimization needs to write that in the write-in portion at the bottom of the survey.


What really needs to happen is everyone does not upgrade to 9 and everyone waits for the trial..that's what really needs to happen...
Good call; though, lets see what they manage/can cope with, in the run up to that... Its been stated many times, we'd all like to see some solid commitment (a maintenance update or two) in tackling those 'Collected Issues' items in a big way... :)

I did as @Headlands says and added such comment, in my survey response.

Top 5 - survey results..!

Thanks to Tim Grunwald for posting the news...
https://www.steinberg.net/forums/viewtopic.php?p=520384#p520384

"Please be aware that some of the requests may not have been implemented in the next version increment of Cubase."

So, some of these are even more long term (after Cubase9..?)

Anyhow, the top 5 voted for were:-

1. Parameter undo/redo history for MixConsole
2. Enhanced window handling
3. Extend options to import tracks/channels in a project
4. Extend resizing possibilities for the rack zone
5. Basic sampler

Good luck to you if its what you wanted; I voted for other things myself (VariAudio improvements and 'Smart tool/workflow' mainly). But of course, I'll gladly take all the above when they finally come around.. :-)

Though Tim says there will be other enhancements/updates/features along the way, fingers crossed I won't be waiting a couple of years for the stuff I'd like to speed my workflow...

Re: Please Help! Workarounds for these 2 things I hate?

As a workaround, I've read from others who have added a 2nd Ruler track and placed it directly under the main one - gives you a bit more to aim at when just navigating... :-)

But I have to agree, as things are now with the new behaviour, it is all a bit tight up there on the ruler...

Good luck.!

Re: Can we get track visibility to work?

I have a key command for 'Update Visibility Configuration'. This makes it a lot quicker to remove any newly created tracks from your visibility configs.
Care to share J-S-Q..? Can it remove them from specific visibility configs..? (one KC per group I guess..?).

This is the main concern of this thread and the annoyance it has highlighted (adding newly created tracks, adds them to ALL visibility configs). It makes the mechanism unfriendly - manually going in afterwards and hand editing each visibility group, is just painful. As Martin said above, I do understand how Cubase cannot be intelligent to 'know' which visibility group you want that new track to appear in; so, it needs another level of functionality somewhere here.

(@indiescore - I too would love to see some (more detailed) guidance on those macros and PLE scripts that @claesbjo speaks of...).

As it is, I've just stopped using them altogether.

Re: Cubase questions from a Logic user

Hi all,

I'm checking out the Cubase 8 demo, and of course lots of questions pop up. For the record, there's more stuff that impress me with Cubase 8 than confuses me - but more about that later.

Here are some of my questions. Thanks in advance to anyone who can respond to one of more of them!

My, we have been saving them up haven't we... ;) Well, firstly welcome..! Hope you continue to enjoy Cubase.

As you'll know, all the main DAW's have their individual ups and downs - use what you feel comfortable with to get the job done.

Can I just say that this thread could get messy for you - too many topics..! I'll have a go first, but maybe prune it down to more manageable chunks, is my advice...

So, in the order they come:-

-No
-Only in the KeyCommands window itself (check manual)
-Can be assigned, but don't know about the 'in all editors' bit
-Don't know
-Don't know
-Don't know
-Don't know
-No
-Lasso select the notes (or use CTRL and click-select separate notes), then use CTRL+drag up or down on one of the notes (or is it ALT..? not sure... but it works)
-In the Inspector, no
-No
-Right-click on the Track Header and choose Remove Selected Track from context menu
-Highlight, press delete (Lanes are for Comping takes in Cubase - check the manual)
-Don't know

Re: Why the trip outs?

On a side note, I was hoping to hear some feedback from the feature request survey that they did a while back. The survey post said that they would let us know once it was evaluated. Has anyone heard any updates on it?

from the Open Letter To Our Customers Thread (General - Announcements section):
The second step will have our engineers assess feasibility of the prioritised list to see which points can be delivered up until the next major update. These will then be shared with you .
Yes, yes...

And indeed the results were exactly as promised shared with us all...
https://www.steinberg.net/forums/viewtopic.php?f=226&t=93576 (includes link to original announcement from Steinberg).

The thread I started was active for over a couple of weeks, through to the middle of March. I guess I'm a hardcore 'lurker' who quickly scans the forums for any news/hints/tips/'gotchas-I-can-help-with', probably at least once a day; so, I picked up on this soon after Steinberg's Tim Grunwald posted.

I don't know why they didn't make it (their results announcement) a 'sticky'. ;)

Continue to post there, if you have some thoughts on it. Now, back to your original topic.!

Re: Question before format

Hi - the quick answer is, yes, that should do it..!

If you want to be doubly-sure, why not make use of the 'back-up' project/folder option from the File menu (or is it 'Save Project to New Location'..? forget the exact wording..!). This will do as it says and make a complete working copy of your project, to a location of your choosing. Then you can format all you want, with joy and happiness... :-)

Re: VCA still troubled? (copy from issues forum)

I have been told by steinberg reps that this is not the intended behaviour and I was ment to be fixed (two of them, Guillermo and Fabio).

I cannot think that having to press a modifier key to select or arm a channel is a well though behaviour?
We can debate if using a linked group is the best tool to achieve VCA functionality, but that is another issue.

The second item, even if the rec arm on selection is on, it looks like a bug.

The point is, VCA are still a half made feature, introduced one and a half year ago (you should look at the Nuendo forum and VCAs)
Interesting... I stand corrected.

Though I use them, I'm also no fan of how they decided to implement these, using the 'Link Channels' facility. They shouldn't have anything to do with that at all IMO. VCA's should do one job well and not get mixed in with other areas of functionality.

And yes, I see the horrible situation they've backed themselves into, in developing two different systems, for Nuendo/Cubase. Its not good reading.

Oh well, guess we'll soon see - roll on C9 (or maybe before..!? I've read a C8.5.30 is 'in the works'...)

Re: EDM Producers. What are you missing in cubase?

- a simple sampler
We may be lucky with something new in the next release... (a 'basic sampler' was one of the top 5 things voted for by users, in a recent SB survey)

- easier sidechain on non vst3
Don't hold your breath; I would think there would be zero effort put in to this from the devs - vst3 is the future

- save automation curves
Agreed.

Though, I'd add that a more general overhaul of automation is needed to include much better/easier writing and storage and re-use of all this type of data; macro controls needed, writing multiple parameters at once (enhanced QuickControls..?)

Re: 8.5 Pro Unusable for Me - Constant Crashes (Mac)

Sorry to hear you're having problems loading older projects into the newer edition... FWIW, I have had lots of success doing this, many times - even from C5 projects. But, ok - I am on Windows; maybe that's important...

Sometimes, its a simple memory overhead that will cause the crashes; perfectly ok projects from an earlier version require more memory in the newer version (fact of life). If you can be bothered, you could try experimenting by removing VST's one by one, to see when the project loads into 8.5 ok...

Anyhow, some other ideas I thought of in the meantime:-

Continue and finish those existing projects in 6; start new projects in 8.5 as you move forward. If you need to bring stuff over from a v6 project into a v8.5 project, try moving one thing at a time (use Track archives/presets or export the Midi files).

Or, render-in-place as audio and import into the newer project. Or, mixdown as stems; then import those.

Hope some of that helps.
Bob
