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.

    cubase vst and cubase 5

    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.

    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

    In this context, Cubase is running without any problem, never crash and remarkable stability.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I am a Cubase user since 2003, this version More precisely since September 2011.

    I test Ableton Live before going in SX3 version 5 but not sure ... May be I am too used the Cubase environment ...

    What I like most? : Its interface and its ability to paramtrage (I doubt that the softs competitors offer the same thing nanmoins). The Device Panels that you can find a and l are also friendly and I like also the editor Intgr audio and MIDI effects Submitted few, adpanne often. ReWire protocol is excellent, perfect example with Reason

    What I like least? : I'm kind of books by the standard VST instruments or effects. Do not expect to complete a project with. This seems more cot Logic provided (but exclusive worldwide MAC). Time strech its algorithm seems prfre perfectible and I often use Sound Forge for this kind of manipulation. Reverence, convolution reverb I also left on my hunger ...

    The ratio quality / price (nine) is okay. I expected a possibly offer better quality in Contents of plug-ins software is fournis.Le trs good job but its actually quite small cots mdiocre and still does not justify the price . However, on occasion, impeccable!

    I do it again this choice with the exprience, nanmoins, I would soon evolve as a platform for MAC is an opportunity to test Logic! But it is true that Cubase will always have a special place in my set.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Went so used cubase 6 1 year, it is better to spend six direct but if the opportunity or destocking 5 is a gas plant. And in the studio I can say is that if does not work, either machine or software, I DGIG the bte because no time to waste time groups.
    I teach it (and reason) and since I have 4 more new lves for my classes because it works better.
    It should also amliorer beat dtective house, and will integrate plug portico etc. .. As with basic dj Logic is expensive and better place for a composer / mixer, with its all in one.
    Similarly small video tutorials (but not directly ask for in the box to form the purchase of the new amliorations and to make best use his new toy) would be welcome.

Meta then delivers individualised ads from us on Facebook or on Instagram that are tailored to your needs.

We ourselves are not in a position to identify you personally via the meta pixel, as apart from your browser ID no other data is stored with us via the pixel.
