    moved on and missed it

    Steinberg Cubase SX 1Published on 05/08/12 at 23:11
    Cubase SX came out before SX 1 so I had a chance to mess with it for a while, mostly in “demo” mode but it was still the same. At first glance I really wasn’t liking it, didn’t really like the interface and how it was laid out. Coming from a few other software’s it was really confusing to me, it actually wasn’t untill I stop using it that I realized how good it really is.


    SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

    When I was using it I was using it on a Toshiba Satellite laptop that really didn’t give me to man issues. It did run slow a few times and had some sort of bugs going on with it but that could have been because my laptop just couldn’t handle it. I didn’t get a chance to run it on any dif…

    SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

    When I was using it I was using it on a Toshiba Satellite laptop that really didn’t give me to man issues. It did run slow a few times and had some sort of bugs going on with it but that could have been because my laptop just couldn’t handle it. I didn’t get a chance to run it on any different computers before I moved on the SX 1.


    OVERALL OPINION

    Overall, it seemed to be a great software I just wasn’t 100 percent comfortable using it right off the bat. Like I said after I decided to stop using it was when I realized how good it was. I guess the saying is true , “you don’t know what you have until its gone”. I do love Cubase though, never really understand all the different versions they come out with though. Also, when trying to mix my own song down in Cubase SX just didn’t work for me either, I couldn’t get a good clean mean. All of my mixes came out to be pretty “light”. I mostly make hip hop and dubstep music so I need a full thick sounds and I had a hard time getting it. So I moved all of the .wav files out to pro tools so I could get the sound that I was looking for. But Cubase SX is a good program to get your feet wet in and understadn how “new” age daws operate.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I commit by copying and pasting here what I said on the forum:

    Hi,

    I SX from qq days and it's a real bonheeur, trs objectively

    The interface can Drout at first but it is an illusion.

    It promne field mouse over the button tooltips explain everything.

    After one hour, there is the bte to hand without any problems.

    It's true that reading the book "Getting Started" help too.

    Something a bit boring: the USB dongle while my two jacks are occupied dj This proves once again that these protections n'emmerdent those who pay their apps, the waza is promne dj since last Wednesday.

    Otherwise, there is still the same bug, which is normal for version 1.0. Personally, I have a butt on mixdown that food sometimes Premire VSTi notes or the same mixdown does not work in OGG format.

    Steinberg is often ahead of the competition it is to innovate ds (VST, ASIO, VSTi etc. ...) but they seemed the floss against other (Logic 5, Sonar 1.0. ..). It was worth the wait.

    To say that everyone rlait "yeah, Charly, r must write your Cubase, it's just code any old rotten! Let us Nuenbase or Cuendo!" He did it!

    They Russi small feat: to offer a product REALLY new but some RFLEX repents of Cubase.

    It's clear, I did not even install Cubase 5 r

    In this regard, the import of Cubase 5 songs is going more or less success depending on the case. But overall, we found there.

    In short, your résumé if you are big fans of Cubase, you must do the update. € 350 uros for a new software (it keeps the 5.1) is not too expensive even if the update is more expensive in France than elsewhere. Knowing that even when version 1.0 is forcment imperfect.

    If you do not know Cubase SX BMD wait, you could you sduit

    Installation is no problem

    the vsti already installed are recognized

    Then it's a bit of hallucination ... nothing to do with version 5. But a diligent user of version 5 will find terms and similar functions.

    what is really interresting is the management of tracks: one has easy access to the parameters of each track, a complete channel strip.
    Personal love

    SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

    I stuck on the management noon. I never AIM cubase for that, I prefer cakewalk.

    I use cubase to record audio only, and it's magic, management asio is fantastic.

    OVERALL OPINION

    As a former Logic user, the choice was made on Cubase APRS hsitations long. Admittedly, Sonar and Samplitude have the rpondant. Finally SX is much more intuitive than it seems. The processing of audio and MIDI give are daunting to the extent that most of the CONTRL is available on the window base. Sonar and Cubase SX are similar bcp on this point, but the advantage SX.
    Trs is flexible Exceeds Logic version 4. Can be a little less efficient in MIDI, but for me it is an excellent tool. Report quality discount.
    Systm is all that is currently my needs, because Logic has disappeared from the PC platform. Its conviviality and its prsentaation logic convinced me

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it since its release, replacing Cubase VST.
    When we used to Cubase VST, there is a little palms dpart: the interface of the same normment chang some keyboard shortcuts. After a few days, it never ceases to s'merveiller the ergonomics of the interface (easy to assign multiple outputs even a MIDI track), stability (I believe n ' plant ever Windows XP) and new (MIDI plug-ins): Cubase has never t as convenient to use and if it is not as forward-WRITING that Sonar, he can put his ides shaped trs quickly ...

    BUT, because there is a "but", it becomes clear over time that many things are passing the trap between VST and SX. Concerning the particular MIDI (you can not use the compass to DCAL notes in the piano roll) and the Groove Quantize: Defines the System to the application and is an incredible burden, while he needed was a simple drag & drop with Cubase VST 5.

    Ct plug, the app is provided and the quality is more or less to go: let's say that by adding some good free plug, you will not get their hands the bag to work in good conditions. (The overdrive / amp simulator can in particular be replaced by plugs of Simuanalog freeware). Specially mention the little vocoder included: it is far from possible Vokator, but the thing is very simple to use and sounds done everything right.

    COMPARATIVE SX / SONAR / LOGIC: With its management loops and MIDI plug arrangement, Sonar is more oriented towards the three write, and is simple to use rvle trs. Alas, it is still not compatible VST ... (So ​​say goodbye to the hundreds of free plugs that format ...)
    A ct Cubase and Logic are gnralistes and VST: Logic IDAL is if you have a MIDI config complex (more synths, samplers, expanders grate) but it is my feel a little too hard to use ... especially as Cubase SX is of great simplicity for me, despite major default, the last n Steinberg is by far the one that offers the best power / simplicitversatilit the march. It is becoming the most of three squenceurs document (see Eyrolles exxxcccceeeeelllllllent site and space VST).
    CONCLUSION: There's good (ergonomics and audio engine), the good months (some plugs dipensables trs) and things you see change Espree (Groove Quantize). We feel that with SX, Steinberg is a good basis that it will take small small complter. Matter be continued.
    As for whether you should upgrade to SX VST, all of what you dpend fates: If you mainly use Cubase for audio, is worth it. If you work in normment MIDI, be rather more cautious set may be of.

    SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

    No problem running this software on my config. I had big problem with my config antrieure MIDI-based motherboard ABIT VIA chipset because of the USB or worse (I bought a PCI card with USB ports).
    I've never had a crash. The only crashes I meet are not ds SX - well I think - but all the programs that I plug in adds a slave and I feel like a bug, especially if I open a internet session ... not to do. I would also say that my computer is Fully ddi music with just one connection to the net for the records of software and updates. Especially not install Office package on the same computer! Performance is as midi Whereas in audio (treatments differ in appearance and in a timely rels).

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use this software for over 6 months but I knew dj Cubase using it since version 3.7. At the very beginners, there's a few years, I worked on Atari but I never used other software midi / audio on a PC.
    A little regret for the GUI. I AIM it seems a little more pro. It would be nickel we can choose the colors of the interface and the Steinberg site offers customized version.
    I find the price justification and I advise everyone to buy it but be careful you may not be NCESS to use all functions of the SX ... then you turn the ct version of the SL least coteuse.
    I would do the same choice is clear.
