never really been a fan of cubase, more a protools (audio) and logic (midi) kind of guy. but if i didn't get student reductions on pro tools i probably wouldn't have brought it.

 

but it all comes down to user preference really.

I ordered the Cubase 7 upgrade last week. I've been using Cubase since SX or SL. Still using C5. Upgrade won't be here until the 19th, so I can't give any advice about C7 until after I've installed and played around with it. But I've been very happy with Cubase for many many years overall. It works very well with my way of working.

I took the plunge. 6.5 still works fine.

 

Man... I don't know. The new mixer is fugly. And everything is so dark. I know you can customize the colors but ain't nobody got time for that. ;)

 

I can't get over the mixer, though. I like the groupings on the side, but I don't like the overall look nor how everything is in a completely different place now. Blah.

I'm on 6.5 as well. I'd heard that there was a few issues with some of their hardware. Since I use the CC121 & UR824, I didn't want to take any risks.

Everything's running well at the moment, maybe I should leave well enough alone.

In any case, still interested in what people have to say about the experience...

I'm getting more and more used to the mixer. It is very flexible. I'm figuring out ways to tweak it to my liking.

 

I can see myself getting to like this.

 

Working flawlessly with my Yamaha N12 / Steinberg MR816x (I already updated the drivers a few weeks ago; they released new Cubase 7 compatible drivers last month).

it's one of the few upgrades that has been worth every penny-the new mixer is suberb. Really dig the ne long meters, the lowpass on the in channel not to waste a channel on filter. Also zooming in on mixer channels and groups of channels are great.

 

I've never fancied the built in effects but I kind of like the new vintage compressors and the eq built in.

 

I can highly recommend c7!

The mixer is one reason I upgraded. I totally like the idea of having my mixer on my second monitor while I do everything else on the main screen. Also, I'm using C5 now and it has HALionOne. My understanding is that HALion Sonic is a huge step up. Also, PadShop looks good but I do have Omnisphere for pads. I like the idea of the channel strips with pretty much everything you need right there without digging too. It won't get here until Tuesday, but I been reading and watchin' tubes.

Hmmm. I like what you are posting about the mixer. Tell me, can you actually decouple the Mixer from the app and move it another monitor, or do we still need to expand Cubase out across available monitors? Does my question make sense? Thanks.

 

In the meantime, I will do some digging myself.

I use my mixer on one large monitor and keep the lanes on my macbookscreen when mixing. WIth Cubase you have always been able to detach the mix screen.....at least as far back as I remember.

 

I don't see how. I don't mean expanding the Cubase application to span two monitors and then have the mixer on one; rather, completely decouple it from the Cubase window. If I am missing something please show me the way! thanks.

So you can't just open the mixer window and grab it by the title bar and drag it to your other monitor? I seem to remember in one of the videos I watched the track window being on one monitor and the mixer window on another. I smell shenanigans. lol

You have to expand the main Cubase application window (the window that encompasses all the other sub-windows) across the two monitors. Then you can put whatever sub-window you want wherever you want.

 

What Steve is asking is if you can keep the main application window on one screen and just drag any other windows over to the other screen, without having to expand the entire application. The answer to that is no.

I'm on 6.5 on Windows - don't know about 7 obviously, but for as long as I can remember I've had the mixer on a separate monitor without maximising the main window across two screens - what you need to do is set the mixer window to Always On Top (by right-clicking on it). You can then drag it outside the main window, and resize the width as you wish to stretch across an entire monitor.

 

The mixer disappears while another program is in focus, but I don't find that any great hardship.

 

Actually, the same goes for pretty much any other windows you like - plugins, VSTi editors, etc.
