Yes, I have exactly that one. It's a very good library also, makes life a whole lot easier - I many times save the patches on disk (on the project's folder) and back them up, just so I can properly recall them if need be.

The interface on this one is a bit like Ableton Live: slick and clean, you can choose some skin colors and that's it. But it's nicely organized, works very well and the developer is a nice and responsive guy, also very active in updates.

Pretty sure it will work on your windows 10 machine, both 32 or 64 bit. Absolutely no problem working with it on mac in both Audio Unit or VST, both 32 or 64 bit.

I can try and go to that one. Currently I'm so focused on my own stuff that I don't go out and party as much as I used to. Heck, I didn't even hear about it. But will surely check it out

I remember we tried meeting once at Boom but somehow, like it happens there with tons of people, finding people there can be quite challenging and then everyone's got their own routines going and the place is huge. Not so much a problem in not as big events

Had a look on Xfer records stuff! I wish I had enough cash now hehe the Xfer records stuff is more than tempting. Especially the LFO Tool looks like a must have for me. Thanks for pointing that out. I think I'll buy this at some point.

Good read about Vcommander tool. Need to wait a bit till I grab it. Virus hits my heart each time I use it. Dunno maybe it's the knobs that enhance the workflow and leads to better results here but it definetly does it, atleast for pads. Really love the sound of Virus for Pads cannot get enough of it hehe

What I still miss in Cubase is having the option to solo a band in the standard native EQ. I use it on almost each channel for subtractive corrections. I have other EQs that are able to solo bands e.g. my fav Eq is TDR Nova - also excellent dynamic processor, and my only dynamic EQ/Comp, but I use the standard Cubase EQ for fast corrections on almost each channel and too often I miss the solo band option. Does that work in the new EQ in Cubase 9?

What I still miss is not having the ability to bounce to mono. I don't have it as an option. I always go to the pool and convert the files to mono - if they were planed to be mono. I thaught it should've been solved out in Cubase 8.5 but somehow I don't have this feature.

Also what I would like is is having an option for bouncing the whole file,with tail like in Logics bounce otpions.. So nice it bounces excatly the whole file, with the exact release of for instance a reverb on a sound. The whole file is bounced as it should in maybe two clicks. I always waste time to correct things here manually.

..but apart of missing some things I'ma true Cubase addict

Xfer Records has had an impressive start. Serum and LFO tool are so widely adopted that it's quickly becoming a standard, like Massive and Sylenth almost.

A big chunk of their success is probably down to knowing what it is to produce music and going for the killer features and the interface to match them. They've clearly picked some good ideas from Massive and Zebra, perhaps even UVI Falcoon (the 3d view of the wavetables)... But the way they've implemented it makes for a very smooth ride and the results, the sound, is really great.

The Virus is all about that hands on approach. I use the editor mainly for the library and for using multis - since my appetite for menu diving with gameboy screens has severely decreased with the coming of age XD.

Still love the sound of it. I think most people misjudge it. I get that it's not the most perfect sounding VA in the market, it aliases a lot, sometimes horribly. The filter is not on pair with most recent VA technology, like what you find on DIVA and stuff like that. That's all true.

But then it's laid out in such a way that enables you to do some crazy modulations with it, with some quircks of its own.

Yeah, with the new Frequency EQ you have the "listen" option along with an invert button, which allows you to scope the spectrum, find the offending/ringing frequencies, click invert and adjust the settings on the band and you're done. I've been using it a lot. But there's others which also have such functionality, like Fabfilter's Pro Q 2 (probably tons more).

As for the Mono thing. I agree. It should have been implemented, probably. You can, however, use some plug-in which turns it to mono (can be several things, I use the stereo width thing from Waves) as a process - assign that to a keyboard shortcut if this is something that you think you'll do a lot. They could probably add bounce to split channels (L/R) option. I know I'd like that.

I also get what you're saying about the automatic tail grabbing/trimming in Logic. But then Logic sometimes played tricks on me (with big projects) and would appear to be getting some alien communication in bars you'd expect to have nothing more then silence to them. And you had to be more careful about what was on the chain, while Cubase allows you to bounce down with or without the plug-ins, including what's on the master channel. To me, it feels better implemented in Cubase.

You can always set a big enough tail and then just trim the audio afterwards. Or use the detect silence features (also can be done with keyboard shortcuts) and trim accordingly. I'm so used to pressing alt and cut, then dragging the little dot to adjust the fade and that sort of thing, I don't even thing about it eheh. That's the way I work. I just make sure I have a big enough tail size to print it all down, then once it's in a new track, I just jump at it with the normal tools

Going back in time a bit, I've been exploring the midi fx more again and there's even an LFO thing in there which can be put to use in a similar fashion to Ableton's max4live one - or to achieve the same results, if you will. The Chorder thing also allows one to configure exactly how hitting a certain note will trigger another one, or a combination of keys... and... it allows one to personalize and save presets.

On another note, since life is short (and the winter is coming), noticed this the other day:

This one looks pretty straight forward.

(also a cubase addict here, served for life, leaving the DAW discussions for other people now XD)

Hey! I just bought VCommander and have this problem with synchronization between Virus and VCommander.

At first I wanna see my presets from the hardware in the software. It should be the option under more / Synchronization / VCommander with Virus data
.. but it somehow does not work like I wish. Any hints?           https://soundcloud.com/shivagarden/cosmotropics

Have you tried contacting the developer from Solar3d? I've exchanged some emails with him due to similar technical issues and he's very quick to reply and helpful.

What you're trying to do should be a no brainer once you get the tech issues sorted. It's really quick to do it here. Although it has to load all the presets to the editor, which takes some time (i.e. not instant).

Now back to our dearest Cubase, in fact, back to Nuendo:







It seems like Nuendo is taking the lead this time, but this implementation of the "off-line processing" seems to be a push in the right direction, would be great if you can automate the parameters and then render - but I'd be happy with the new interface and being able to preview an entire chain, rather then just one plug-in at a time; and to do all that listening in context.

But this means good news for me. I'm an obvious abuser of the off-line render thing and I don't want to be cured, I want more of it with special options (and sauce options).

Hey! yes I tried and he is a cool guy, responded fast too. Problem is that I got so little time, due to our massive festival season, that I hardly can follow all things around me this summer. But at some point I shall send him screenshots etc. I think it will be solved out at some point. A bit pity since I was massively motivated to produce tracks as I got the software but I haven't tried anything proudction-wise, since my last post here. Nuendo is top. The only problem is that it's really too expensive.           https://soundcloud.com/shivagarden/cosmotropics

That's the major problem I see with Nuendo, too.

Let's hope they'll bring some of these features to Cubase as well, I think they should do it with these new processing options (on the video) and while they're at it, could also add the awesome Randomizer from Nuendo.

Enjoy the summer and get inspired. Cheers

I'm updating now to 9.5 from 8.5 looking so forward to the new features. What I really find a little sad is that in order to use cubase on mac and on windows you would need to buy another dongle... am I right about that? That sucks a bit.. since I like to work a lot with mac in bed haha and a dongle or any other usb sticks seems for me to be suboptimal for that.           https://soundcloud.com/shivagarden/cosmotropics

Has anyone checked out the new Flux synthesizer in Cubase 9.5? Highly recommended... Pure awesomeness a bit of serum = wavetable can move in many ways and it sound delicious!! IMO best sounding raw waveforms in Cubase ever.           https://soundcloud.com/shivagarden/cosmotropics
