Audio routing path in C7 is different than C6.

Aloha guys,

I am going over Matt Hepworth’s tutorial:
‘Moving Forward with Cubase 7’

Reading the chapter where he describes/explains
how different the audio routing is in C7 compared
to C6.

Wow!

I’m glad I got the tut because this would have taken me
time to figure.

Once I am done (and understand more) I will post a brief summary of how
Matt explains this.

Anyone else notice the different routing path?

Anyone else notice the different routing path?

nop. except from new ch strip ?

I am going over Matt Hepworth’s tutorial:
‘Moving Forward with Cubase 7’

what who how ? can u give some info about this ?

Interesting. I’d love to know! I watched all the videos Steinberg posted on the new C7 features and there wasn’t much said about different signal flow.

Aloha guys,

OK here goes:
According to Matt.

C6
Signal (audio or vsti)
arrives at ‘Channel Input’
then goes to:
‘Inserts’ 1-6
then goes to:
the ‘E.Q.’ section
then goes to:
‘Sends’ where it is ‘taped off’ but dry signal continues to:
‘Fader’
then goes to:
‘Inserts’ 7-8
then goes to:
Output

C7
Signal (audio or vsti)
arrives at ‘Routing’
then goes to:
‘Pre’ Section
then goes to:
‘Inserts’ 1-6
then goes to:
the ‘E.Q.’ section
then goes to:
the ‘Strip’
then goes to:
‘Sends’ where it is ‘taped off’ but dry signal continues to:
‘Fader’
then goes to:
Inserts 7-8
then goes to:
Output

One thing I noticed is that with C7 Inserts 7-8
don’t seem to have a colour marking like in C6
to show there is a Pre/Post difference.


HTH
(hope this helps)

It also depends on how you have configured it as well, because this is very, very adjustable.
Yoy can move the EQ anywhere within the strip, you can put the inserts ahead of the strip or the strip ahead of the inserts also.

And, I believe, any of the sends can be moved post fader.

…which has been the case since ever.

Hmmm… not sure I follow… ‘moved’ (to another slot…?) or ‘switched’ (on each send)…?

Your post also implies, (and apologies if I’m reading you wrong), the default has changed - i.e. sends in C7 are defaulted to pre-fader…?!

In C6, all (audio) sends were defaulted to post-fader, and one could choose to switch any to pre-fader via the little button on the send, that then lit up orange.

Just going on what you say, if desired it seems the action now is on the user to switch a send to post-fader…

:confused:

Yeah, you’re right. They can be switched to pre. Same as always.
I just typed before my brain engaged. An issue I have sometimes . . .

I wish they had given a colour to inserts 6 and 7 like in
Cubase 6 as a possible indication.

At least now we know.
