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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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-...
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.
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.
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 ...
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, ...
the biggest portion of latency is almost always in the software synthesizer.
the lame ones (who don't use the minimum latency that the sound card says it can handle) have to be configured for the number of millisecs of audio they will buffer.
Or, if they're REALLY lame, you won't be able to change that buffer size and will have to just suffer with their ...
Personally I prefer Boar for version control of binary files. That is the exact use case of that system - mostly used for photos, etc.
On the other hand, I can also recommend you the git Large File System. That means you can stay with git syntax/toolchain without a need of setting up boar.
Took the above advice. This has been working great for me with git. Logic Pro X 10+.

Haven't tried it, but splice looks interesting as well.
You would normally use the Quick controls & midi device manager feature in Cubase to map your keyboard or use the ready made templates..But Quick controls is not available in the trial version of Cubase 7 Elements.
The only alternative is to use a midi plugin as a translator calibration tool... you would also need a chart of the midi specifications of ...
This is my gut-feeling about many DAWs. Don't read this as anything but a possible cause.
If I've missed the point of this question, please let me know and I'll delete it.
You say playback is fine. But how do you know? Well, you think you know because eveything sounds in sync - but you don't really know when your playback actually begins because there ...
This is half guess and half intuition: -
Maybe the default midi settings for the cubase track need to be set correctly so that when the loop goes back to the start, cubase doesn't issue default midi instrument settings?
If you set start and end loop points within the extents of the track does it loop and keep the same settings OK?
Does your Mackie have a USB output? If it does then you may need to load drivers onto your PC so that it recognizes the mackie mixer. These drivers probably came with your mixer when you acquired it.
If it doesn't have a USB output then you'll need a USB analogue to digital converter maybe like this: -
