    Cubase - make Key Editor show position of cursor by default

    I press twice very quickly the space bar to bring back the view at the cursor position. That play/stop do the trick. Now I'm used to do that it does not bother me. But it's not the greatest solution...

    CSS/ CSB Hanging Notes

    @Alex W I'm a cubase 8/win10 user and it happened to me a while ago. And I've found a work around, but not a fix. I noticed that it only happen when I grab some midi notes in the piano roll and move them up or down with the keyboard arrows, with notes playback on ! So the group of notes is...

    Cinematic Studio Woodwinds?

    Cinematic studio bumping is an art, and if you do it, please respect that art. You should write : "Cinematic Studio Bump". Nothing more. The good news is : it's never too late to improve. So wait a couple of days until this thread disappear and then do it properly ! ;)

    Cinematic Studio Brass - out now!

    I don't use expression map but to have the instruments on the right octave on the piano roll, I transpose one octave up in the midi track and write the notes one octave down on the piano roll (at the real octave). So the midi notes arrived in kontakt as they supposed to arrive. And my bass lines...

    My take on Cinematic Studio Brass (with a strange Hanz Zilliams vibe !?)

    I just tested it again and no vibrato :crying: a bit of a bummer. And there is no setup part for it : Compare to CSS Happily my SM brass are still there for the mellow lines !

    My take on Cinematic Studio Brass (with a strange Hanz Zilliams vibe !?)

    On my nektar LX88 there is that horrible "Setup" button right in the middle of the keyboard... once he clic on it, every button/key he touch configure something! A real nightmare to setup back :mad: :grin:

    My take on Cinematic Studio Brass (with a strange Hanz Zilliams vibe !?)

    A quick feedback on the lib : Very very surprised by how this lib can sound big and epic (yes I said the E word) and crisp/adventurous at the same time Even more surprise by how it sound good out of the box. It sound great even with a flat CC1. I like the spatialisation of the mixed mic. I love...

    Expand upon the idea that music is just tension and release.

    Too me, it's really telling a story that need tension and release. And writing music is telling a story. But that applies to everything : book, cinema, painting, architecture. If nothing happens, no change in angle, in color, in motif... You loose your audience, your public. Yes it's not an...

    Why do people mono libraries? (e.g. BWW)

    And for the "less space in the mix" mono mean same signal in the right and left chanel. Not less space. Usually bass and kick are mixed in mono in Rock/RnB/pop/EDM and they are not small in the mix ;) Edit: the oldest videos from this channel are full of fantastic mixing advises, even if it's...

    Why do people mono libraries? (e.g. BWW)

    Too me, It depends how sample are recorded. If your woodwinds are too much "in the face" reducing the stereo width may help to place them in the virtual stage. But it would be one of the trick, as long as using some early reflections and reverb FX and more importantly : adjusting the volume to...
