Latency is due to the audio driver for the audio card. Cubase uses ASIO-drivers (an invention by Steinberg themselves) which mean they are optimized for the sound card if the manufacturer of the sound card makes ASIO-drivers available. For sound cards that doesn't support ASIO there are workarounds such as DirectX ASIO (built-in in Cubase IIRC) and Asio4All ...

There are few dedicated options available in Cubase for that purpose (there might be more). 1. The Random Quantize setting This setting affects the result of the quantizing. It allows you to set a “distance” in ticks (120ths of sixteenth notes). Events will be quantized to random positions within the specified “distance” from the quantize grid, thus ...

Here are all the places I know of between pressing a key and hearing the sound where latency is likely to be introduced: Your MIDI interface: This might be built into your keyboard or it might be another device with a female DIN jack on it. Some of these are less latent than others, but the variation is usually pretty small. However, a lot of these work ...

I would suggest you start by reading this article, which apart from giving you ideas, is also handy for education. http://www.soundonsound.com/sos/nov04/articles/computerproblems.htm The signal noise on your soundcloud sounds like computer component noise. Are you setting your equipment levels correctly? Check this article on gain staging: http://www.basic-...

Cubase (C4 on my PC) allows you to insert a track fx for midi tracks that lets you globally raise all notes up or down as many semitones as you want: - I've got acoustic piano track fx, transpose feature circled. Maybe this will let you do what you need. If you only need to apply this to a section of the track you can set up a control track where you only ...

If your "VST" track just has MIDI data in it already (which is being sent to a VST), then you should be able to copy that MIDI data out just as you describe. If it isn't (say, it's got audio data that's just being processed by a VST) then there no universal way to do this, since MIDI is not audio. Some tools do exist that will attempt to transcribe note ...

The ProFX8 will let you record only a stereo channel (or 2 mono) at a time. I am not familiar with Traction, but in Cubase you can go to menu Devices > Device Setup and choose the Mackie from the first option field (Asio driver). Then you might need to go to Devices > VST Conections to route the channels to the right input. Here you can choose in ...

The two products are pretty different. Cubase is a DAW whose primary purpose is to sequence MIDI and manage digital audio. Max/MSP, meanwhile, is a modular programming environment for audio. DAWs like Cubase tend to arrange things on tracks with a timeline, and offer the ability to effect, modify, and edit those tracks. Max has everything in little modules ...

The almighty CTRL + D or CMD + D does just that - duplicates the part. I've also found this neat table listing all keyboard shortcuts. For doubling the tempo you can use the time-stretch cursor on midi, drag it and drop it where is half it's initial size.

I recall that Cubase has an option for this. Find the 'Device Setup' window, select VST Audiobay and select "Release ASIO Driver in Background". This should allow you to minimize Cubase and utilize your audio card with other software. I hope this helps.

Go to Devices/Device Setup then under VST Audio System on the right side of the window Tick the option underneath ASIO Driver that says release driver when app is in background... ;-p that worked for me.

I'm not a FL Studio user, but I'd be surprised to find that there are no active forums full of FL Studio users. That said, the other DAWs you suggest break down as follows: ProTools is said to be great at audio and weak at MIDI. It seems to be the go-to choice for full-serivce professional studios. As far as I know, you can't run VSTs natively in ProTools, ...

Holding down ctrl while clicking the mouse on the specific note (or group of notes if you drag the mouse) will select as many midi notes as you require. Velocity is then shown and if all are the same value then reducing the velocity by say 20 will reduce the velocity on all the notes by 20. Unfortunately if one of the notes you selected had a velocity of (...

Remixing doesn't necessarily mean you have to have perfect timing compared to cubase. If you have the individual tracks as entities in their own right then applying whatever fx, eq and compression to the individual tracks doesn't require it to hit the beats spot on. However, if you are adding midi instrumentation to the track then this is a different thing ...

I don't know how to do this with Cubase specifically, but generically you can do this by using pre-fader track sends. What these do is send a percentage of the track's signal out to another track, usually called a return track. So you can have your main mix coming out your main outputs (just like you do already), but you can ALSO have a different mix going ...

I haven't seen Cubase 5 in many years & it's changed a lot since, but isn't it this button, circled in red?

Assuming you are using the IO2 with the guitar input, with Mic/Line / Guitar switch set to guitar, I'd start by bringing down the gain knob then turning it up slowly. Also make sure that you aren't by some quirk of monitoring hearing the guitar coming straight through the interface AND having it come through Cubase at the same time? If none of that works, ...

This is by design - when running a full featured DAW, the assumption is that it will be controlling all sound, otherwise the project you are working on may not end up as you expect.

Maybe you can get it domne after reading this. http://www.steinberg.net/en/support/tips_and_tricks/archive_2011/cubase_6_split_audio_files_july_2011.html
