Re: Tempo adjustment

Does this "bad" file actually play ok? (i.e. before trying to change the tempo).
Try this..
Select it, in the Project window, then, Audio menu>Bounce Selection. This will create a new file, hopefully, stripped of whatever it was that was making it behave strangely.

The bad file DID actually play ok. But I am unable to try your "Bounce" technique on it because now when I try to open it, it says "Cubase Has Stopped Working" then crashes. Luckily I was able to open it previously and renamed it. So everything is working on the new file.
One last question... I see you guys have "been thanked" meters next to your names. How do you "thank" someone??

Re: Can;t open or close Wave files in Wavelab 4.0 Win7

I recall this problem. Looking through my archive I found the following (I also have copies of the files concerned) which is clearly the same issue, though the versions are not the same - at least it may point to a solution for the OP:

Steinberg Wavelab 5.01b FIX for Windows VISTA

* Warning! Will only work with version 5.01b

Just copy the comdlgxp.dll and the CommonVcPh.dll to
your Wavelab folder. Overwrite existing files.


More info for those interested...
Like many others, I was frustrated when I found out that
Wavelab 5 did not run on Vista. Even more frustrated when
Steinberg said that they would not fix the problem for version 5.
Instead, one had to buy the new version 6. Yeah right!

Well good news! I happen to be good at reverse engineering and
I have a solution for you all. I was very curious on finding why
in hell Wavelab crashed when trying to "Open" or to "Save As..."
a file. Well, it looks like the problem comes from some changes in
the comdlg32.dll in Vista. Some wavelab variable gets overwritten
by the GetOpenFilename function inside comdlg32.dll. That causes
the application to crash. By debugging the disassembled code, I was
able to realize that Steinberg could have easily fixed the bug. They only
had to make a minor change in the source code. They wont fix it because
they want to make more money off you!

Re: What is going on with Cubase 7?

First off. OBVIOUS INFORMATION for the unready. This is NOT the ISSUES forum. This is NOT the Steinberg SUPPORT desk. I suggest you visit one or the other if one is serious about having these "problems".

There is less wrong with Cubase than is wrong with the incompetent who can't get it to work like thousands of others can.
Who don't know how to complain properly or even where to complain and who mysteriously have a convenient amnesia when it comes to supplying any handy information that might help themselves like system details. Complaining here just makes you all look a bit foolish because this is a USER self-help forum. Do I have to say that s-l-o-w-l-y. A u-s-e-r selllffff hhhheeeellllppp foooorrroooom. It's not the forum where the sane moan for years and years about the SAME problem they had with the last 8 versions (that they were NEVER going to buy). The problem that bothers no one else because they have got a life.
And I have seen devs contributing here. I have seen problems addressed. I think these posts are cheeky and arrogant beyond belief. How would any of you like to be treated the same way by your "clientele"? The way so much "doesn't work" I can believe complaints about some studios must be numerous. Does one tell the "client" "Sorry but it's Cubase. It's awful!" ? :roll:
And it doesn't help with problems when helpful suggestions are brushed aside as irrelevant because they don't join in with the spurious complaint brigade.

What's going on with Cubase 7 is "not much". What's going on with some users that needs more urgent attention.
Nobody MADE any of us buy Cubase. So why buy all those latest, shiny new versions that you said you'd never bother buying from Steinberg EVER again? I'm as dim as a 40watt lightbulb and I can get Cubase working. Even Cubase 7.

Re: Ozone 6 dither and Wavelab

There is a 6.01 update to Ozone 6 and now the dither setting works as expected.

Whatever the dither is set to in Ozone, the bit-meter in Wavelab shows the same.

Re: Still awaiting customer support since 15.01.2015

Again - I won't be able to provide "chart content" that I had to edit up, as this is copyrighted and therefore distribution outside of my clients would be illegal.

Your resistance to provide a "fair use" sample for PG to examine truly boggles my mind in this thread. What do you think PG is going to do with your item - use it as a profit generator?

If you really want t get to the bottom of this - (you continue to talk like you never want a resolution) - man up and send PG a sample so he can see what's up?

There is nothing "illegal" about sending a professional courtesy sample for technical support. If your "client" truly has an issue with this - might be time for some new clients....

Re: Replacing damaged e-licenser

@OP: If the dongle is no longer usable, please proceed with the Steinberg Zero Downtime. You will be also provided with a direct e-mail address when you apply for it in MySteinberg.

@Steve: Indeed, only Steinberg licenses. Every vendor have a different policy - especially concerning lost licenses.

@vic_france: Of course you won't be asked to send the same dongle to different companies - we usually recommend to send a broken dongle also containing 3rd Party licenses to the 3rd Party. We do communicate with them and have a support service for vendors as well.

Re: Can someone make sense of Musical Mode?

Please stop confusing the people. ;) :lol:

There are two terms:

1. Musical Mode - Turn it on for an audio file in the Info Line or in the Pool and that file will change speed with the project tempo.

2. Time Base - this is a track setting, regardless of the type of content the track contains. Its icon is in the track header: a quarter note for Musical Time Base, or a little clock for Time Linear Time Base.

A track set to Linear time Base will have the start times of all its events locked to Seconds or Timecode position; if you change the tempo the event start times remain the same.

A track set to Musical Time Base will have the start times of all events locked to the bar and beat; if you change the tempo the event start times in minutes:seconds will change, but of course, the starting beat/bar remains the same.

A track can be set to Musical Time Base and have audio files on it that have Musical Mode either on or off, and vice-versa.

Use the right term please! It's confusing enough for new users since the two features have such similar names.

Re: Changing length of wav file

What should be happening is that you are encapsulating your wav or "event" into a "part". There is a dropdown for this "Events to Part" - It's possible that the key shortcut is my customisation and has led you wrong. Any way, find "Events to Part". It's under the Audio Menu.

Parts can hold many events. Once in a part, you can drag the beginning and end of it to snap to barlines, beats etc according to your quantise setting. Now you can move or copy the entire part. it's much easier than just working with events. I attach a screenshot to make things clearer. Hope this helps.

That one stumped me for a long time, until I found out you could adjust the locked node level by holding down Ctrl.

Re: Do Steinberg know how broken Cubase 8 is? Probably

Not a very constructive post. Probably better to investigate whether there is anything in your system that's stopping you from getting the best out of Cubase. Certainly I run dozens of Kontact instances every day with no trouble. Failing that, you can roll back to 7.5 if that ran nicely for you and then you'll be able to work effectively until things get ironed out.

Re: SAY something good or be deleted .....

It is not about saying something good, just have a look around, we're leaving all the complaints on the forum.
But calling names and accusations of criminal activity is something different to complaining.
You managed to get two warnings in one day, usually granting a temp ban according to the rules, which you didn't get.

It's just matter of not calling names and behave in a civil way. Critiques are welcome.

Steinberg products compatible with Windows 10

We are happy to announce that the Windows 10 related performance and timing issues of our sequencer products (Cubase, Nuendo, Sequel) have now been resolved with the latest Windows update. Microsoft released the necessary patch in close cooperation with Steinberg after our engineers identified the cause (changes had been made to the MMCSS subsystem of Windows).

This is why we can announce Windows 10 an officially supported operating system across the entire Steinberg product line.

UPDATE Please also have a look at our statement regarding the latest Windows 10 "Redstone" update from August 2016 here:

Re: •Plug ‘n’ play support for USB devices on Windows

While the feature is nice and should have been implemented by default, I believe it is not crucial:

professionals typically have their devices (e.g. a MIDI keyboard) connected permanently, others can easily connect before starting the DAW.

Sometimes USB devices need rebooting or loose connection with the host. Now it is possible to restart the device without restarting Cubase. I would say it is a rather professional feature.

Re: Content of 8.5 also in 9.0?

My question: is there content in the 8.5 install that I will miss if I simply skip it and install version 9? In other words, does it make sense to first install 8.5 - obviously I will not use it, since coming from 7.5 I will go to 9 directly this way..


you can safely skip 8.5, new versions are updated with new content, but that in previous versions is retained.

i didn't ask for your wrong advies anyway so don't stick your big nose where it don't belong and get a life.

i'm complaning to steinberg that you threathing that they kick me out,and i won't your personal details to sue you for harrsement and tring to making me look bad (and failed even in this simple task)

So you contacted Steinberg on Facebook and it got fixed - good for you. But that is a different thing than posting here on the fourm which isn't *Steinberg*, it's *Steinberg*'s customers. And please I strongly encourage you to sue me :roll:

By the way you don't need anyone to help make you look bad, you're doing a great job of that yourself. :lol:

Re: •Plug ‘n’ play support for USB devices on Windows

I have a Behringer USB board that doesn't show up in the device manager. I am very frustrated with this Cubase 9. I have many different, older studio software and they all work with the Behringer mixer. I was duped into buying this piece of *flower* Steinberg crap. I wouldn't recommend it to my worst enemy.

Why not just ask for some help with your issue? :roll:

PG praise !

Hey all,

I just finished my first full editing and mastering session on WL9 Pro after months of hesitation and deliberation. Having been with Wavelab since it's inception (one way or another), I've always been a huge supporter but was skeptical about making this transition as it seemed more extreme than previous upgrades. After much customizing and finally finding the time to get into the details...I'm once again a believer !

Philippe (and the beta team) - you have once again found a way to make my work life easier while upping my quality game with awesome tools that are hard to beat at any level ! As PG knows, I've been the Sr. Director for a large syndicated broadcast network for many years here in the U.S. and manage about 20 WL licenses. Primarily stuck on WL6 (because it rocked), but finally about to upgrade all systems. From managing music libraries, to Sound Design/Imaging to mastering concert specials Wavelab has NEVER failed me !

Thanks Philippe (and Steinberg) for helping me keep stay in the game and ahead of the competition after 15+ years ! Also relaying thanks from the production teams behind Ryan Seacrest, Nikki Sixx (Motley Crue), and Casey Kasem.
