    Switching from Logic to Cubase Advice?

    Same issues here. I love Cubase and it’s capabilities, but it gets really sluggish and choppy when you have dense MIDI playing back (on a Mac at least).

    CSS/ CSB Hanging Notes

    I honestly couldn’t tell you. I have duplicates of the same patch loaded for each instrument (ie, 4 Horns and 4 Horns, etc) on separate MIDI channels, and when I get a stuck note, I’ll move the MIDI region to one of the duplicates and the stuck note goes away even though it’s an exact copy of...

    CSS/ CSB Hanging Notes

    I have this happen occasionally as well while using Cubase on a Mac. Although, my CSS and CSB libraries are on VEP PC slaves. I normally get stuck notes when doing my own SFZ with sustain or tremolo patches. I’m using Expression Maps and FlexRouter with each CSS/CSB in its own individually...

    Cubase users - how do you manage TEMPO changes for Reel/Entire score

    Rob, you can create two blank MIDI tracks, set one to time-based and the other to beat-based. Create a blank region on the time-based track at the new start time you're trying to reach. Then place a blank region on the beat-based track on the first beat of the cue start. Adjust your tempo track...

    There’s a trial for Nuendo on Steinberg’s website. Download and test your projects before you decide.

    Looking for someone excellent at mock-ups/orchestrations

    Hello, I am looking to hire a part-time mock-up professional. This is paid position if hired, but know this is an as-needed position. It is not full-time. Requirements: - Very cool attitude/ego, i.e. accepting notes/changes if asked without issue. - Very good with time-management. If I ask for...

    Purchasing Grace M900 headphone amp - suggested pro level phones?

    If it’s not too late, perhaps find a dealer that accepts returns in case you don’t dig the DT1990s. Or at least an exchange.

    Purchasing Grace M900 headphone amp - suggested pro level phones?

    Hey Rob, I have the DT1990s with the Rupert Neve Amp while running Sonarworks and my mixes have never sounded better when using headphones at night and then checking on monitors the next morning. I was using AKG K712s and my mixes always sound waaaaaaay unbalanced when I checked on my monitors...

    Opinions for this pc build

    I’m not a super-pro at PC building knowledge — I have built a few for myself and others — but why not go for the i9-9900K processor? It’s nearly half the price and has better single core speed. From my experience (which is subjective), single core speed will server you better for audio...

    Seeking advice on what to buy for VEPro Slave machine

    If you’re just starting out, use what you currently have until it maxes out or breaks. There’s not much sense in dropping a load of money on a powerhouse of a computer (Mac or PC) if you’re unsure of what you need. If you do decide to upgrade, you’ll get more bang for your buck by building a PC...

    Cubase 10 jumps around, totally unpredictable!!

    Hi Stig, I’m using Cubase 10 on a Mac like you and I can’t say I’m expierencing these issues. - Which MacOs are you using? - If you have Cubase 9.5 installed on the same computer, have you tried removing C9.5 and 10’s Preference folders so that C10 builds a fresh folder without copying over...

    Testing latency and graphics cars Mac

    Yes, like Marcel said, the Nvidia issue is only with Windows. Although, whichever AMD card you purchased, you can check to see if it’s future proof with MacOS so you’re able to update to new OSs if needed. Otherwise there’s no real purpose to keep it. I’m still running the Nvidia GT120 card...

    Question regarding Vienna Ensemble Pro and Gigabit Switch

    You don’t need the gigabit switch connected to your internet at all for it to work. The only reason to have the switch connected is, like Stig said, if you want to be able to do updates and/or downloads on your slaves.

    Cubase - Apply Track Delay To Multiple Tracks At Once?

    Labornvain is correct. If you’re simply looking for a quick way to advance the MIDI then there are workarounds outside of using the track delay slider. Additionally, you can even setup Logical Editor presets to advance the MIDI by the exact amount needed and then assign it to a key command. I...

    VEPro Disabled Template Question

    I’m sure you’re correct. :) I wasn’t at my desk when writing my previous response. Either way, I just remember controlling “enable/disable” with a CC message wasn’t worth it to me. I think the only way it would be accurate is if there is a way to trigger enable with one CC and disable with a...

    Cubase - Apply Track Delay To Multiple Tracks At Once?

    If it’s not working with QLink (or alt-shift) in the mix console, then I don’t believe you can affect multiple tracks at once. This has always been a gripe with me as well because I have an Input Transformer on each MIDI track which you need to do ONE at a flippin time! However, the only slight...

    VEPro Disabled Template Question

    It’s very tedious, but I did this in VE Pro by using the automation panel and assigning enable/disable to a button on my midi controller which toggles this. The biggest issue is — if you write in the cc automation to the corresponding midi track in cubase — things can get messy depending on the...

    Cubase 10

    Speaking of Cubase 10’s GUI and anyone who owns Genesis Choir, have you tried it in Kontakt 5 loaded inside Cubase? On my system, when I push the mod wheel up/down, the “blue dynamics ball” in the Genesis Kontakt GUI is very choppy/laggy. When I try this is Cubase 9.5 and Logic, it’s very...

    Cubase: "Show tracks with data" and midi reset data

    You should be able to put in something like “bigger (or larger) than” in the “position” area of the project logical editor. Or, have you considered using the “input transformer” on each track so that you don’t need you midi reset regions? That way nothing gets deleted. It takes a bit to setup...

    VE Pro - Can I only show select plugins?

    What about putting your most used in the AU folder and the rest on the VST folder (or the opposite)? Or, possibly create a blank channel strip with your most used deactivated and save it. Or, buy WHPro and be done with it all.

    Digital Performer 9+: User experiences?

    Hi, MIDI regions are similar to a recorded audio file; all the MIDI info is contained inside a region (or container) for just that section of the music. For example, on a single violin track, you can have many regions with the different violin lines in it. These are handy because you're able to...

    Digital Performer 9+: User experiences?

    In that case, I’ll give you my impressions from the small amount of time of trying DP. I’ve gotten so used to MIDI being inside regions from using Cubase and Logic that when I use DP it gets frustrating quickly for me. I find the workflow in Cubase to be quicker with less mouse clicks than in...

    Digital Performer 9+: User experiences?

    Have you tried their 30 day demo? Since DAWs are so personal, the only one who can really compare the two is yourself. DP was my first DAW then later I switched to Cubase. I tried the DP 9.5 demo just for kicks, and I can give you my impressions, but they are just that: my impressions. Things...

    Cubase Multiple Key Editor Windows. How do I hide?

    I just posted this on the Steinberg forum: I tried a few tests on this "record in editor" function, and it seems that it doesn't matter if you have "editor follows event selection" turned on or off at all. If you have the key editor open in a separate window (not just the lower zone), save the...

    Cubase Multiple Key Editor Windows. How do I hide?

    Concerning this conundrum, I don’t think there’s a way “hide” the windows except by using a screenset. If you’re wanting to “close” all key editors then I’m not sure if there’s a command for that. I do know there’s a command to open/close just the key editor, but that may trigger whichever...

    DAW Use for Scoring Poll

    It’s difficult to pick just one DAW to learn sequencing on. If I did have to suggest only one I would recommend Cubase because it seems like many composers are switching to it these days. However, personally, I feel the students should learn as many DAWs in-depth as they can — mostly DP, Logic...
