Steinberg Cubase 5: Take Five

Introduction

Cubase, one of the titans of the sequencer pantheon, has come out with an attractive looking 5th version, at a time when the sequencer wars are raging more than ever. Let's take a look... Read more…

    Installation without problem on XP and Windows 7 64 bitq.
    Relatively easy setup when cubase know.
    No incompatibility.
    Manual clear and thick :).
    I made several carefree updates (I 5.1.1)

    ADQUATION / PERFORMANCE

    PC Q9650, 8GB RAM, RME 9632 and Windows 7 64-bit, yes it is very stable, much more than XP because + of RAM available. The software works well but I find that the CPU meter in the red tape faster, oddly I could better latency in XP. I'm still working on large projects of 50 tracks (or very much) with lots of effects and VST. Let's say the freeze is my friend.

    NOTICE GLOBAL

    I use it for 2 months before I had cubase studio 4, I tried many software before including ProTools, Logic, Ableton Live ...

    For now I am satisfied Cubase is a very comprehensive and rather simple software. I appreciates well on paramtrables keyboard shortcuts and macros (a can transform Cubase), the power of the south, the audio edition, the multitude of effects and functionalities rather good quality. Among the novelties of the V5 I like to beat designer and VariAudio.

    What I like least is the bets that are slow days as usual at Steinberg, non-patched bugs, aberration in some features (Media bay, automation, windows ...)

    The price quality ratio is good in view of the proposed cubase and competition.

    No problem at this level.

    SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

    It runs on a Quad Core, 4GB RAM, SSD HDD. No problem.

    OVERALL OPINION

    True to Cubase VST 32 since it is a major music production software. I think this is THE MIDI software.
    After years on, the changes made are huge. I stay on the 5th, but the built-in mixer 7 will perhaps make me invest again.
    This is a classic, yet if you want to mix a song, you will quickly be limited and will be obliged to invest in a series of plugs, unlike Protools, where the built-in effects are already excellent bills. ...

    Pulsieurs used cubase since SX versions. What I like most is that ergonomics can focus on the work of composition.

    cubase vst and cubase 5

    Tested under windows seven and xp.Pas particular problems.

    I do not know if it comes from my pc, but when windows XP ago
    too much MIDI data stored on large numbers of measurements publishers operation becomes too slow and it is very annoying for a long working session ... vst on cubase I can work on thousands of measurements with as much data as I want without any problems, I should mention that I only work with MIDI, no audio (I know it's cheesy but it suits me perfectly! ).

    OVERALL OPINION

    As I said above I only work with MIDI, so I do not judge here
    the MIDI part, well at the risk of a retrograde old, the point of view I prefer cubase VST MIDI too many nice things have disappeared on cubase 5: toolbar with the ability to assign any what preset logic editor to an icon, the ability to enter notes by velocity in the editor keyboard that on cubase 5 ternary values ​​ultimately do not really exist and are defined in relation to binary values ...
    I could go on, however the useful thing to use as
    one hand as a model in terms of velocity and force power any hand to adopt the same velocity without having to rework the velocities for each share that would be a huge time saver, that, that is still not.
    To conclude, if you want a good MIDI sequencer simple and effective if you do not want to ruin because cubase 5 is still quite expensive, try to find cubase VST 5 used or if you keep it!
    Signed an old fogy retrograde still finds that MIDI is not dead and is a fabulous tool work at a time when no one swears by the audio!!
    A final remark on the lack of flexibility in terms of backups:
    on cubase VST could save the units, arrangements or complete song, it offered great flexibility on cubase 5 finished it all: the one size projet.Je really think this choice made by Steinberg since the abandonment of cubase VST and the transition to new versions is a choice too limiting and too rigid.
    And contrary to what I've read here and there cubase VST 5 which dates from 1999 if I remember correctly works perfectly under windows seven after the tests I have done.

    Installation under XP and Vista 32/64 Seven and then without any pb

    using cubase since the beginning of a falcon atari then the directo disk, then the next genration of Cubase SX, I is not been affected by the interface or the new features

    no conflict encountered, be careful if you modify some path of cubase VST 5 (groove agent ... I do not remember other ds) because then the library must be sent in the VST drag and drop does not work

    Cubase works great, 2% CPU with large VSTI (QLSO / trilogy / colossus / Stylus RMX / etc etc)

    no crash, no error

    OVERALL OPINION

    Cubase on XP for about 10 years, seven for 8 month, day and night between the two OS

    For me is the ideal cubase, protools dedicated hardware is different, etc, etc, too much stress, and maintaining a good PC is well worth a MAC, it's over the gap between the two
