I’m talking about the EQ display. In some 3rd party EQs u can change the parameters to AT LEAST +/-12 db just so that when u need to make smaller incremental changes with ur mouse, its not such a chore/impossibility.
Check out FabFilter Pro-Q’s GUI. Its huge…and to make small incremental EQ changes is not difficult. Than look at Waves’ GUIs there’s so small, a tiny flick of the mouse and ur off by 50hz and 5db. I supposed I could try typing in the changes but I like the graphical format, drawing/dragging filters around. I just thought it’d be cool to alter Cubase’s default EQ filter db range.
Hi, It’s not possible to adjust the display like Fabfilter.
and the Shelf 1 vs Shelf 2 can be set in the prefs. Don’t remember at the moment exactly where, but yes. It’s a tick box that lets you load shelf 1 when new eq is loaded.
Are you referring to changing the scale of the EQ in Edit Channel Settings, JLiRD808?
I.e. zooming the Equalizers area in towards an EQ range so that the top/bottom of the display show say, +6/-6, instead of the default +24/-24? This way, the max/min are scaled based on the zoom level and finer adjustments are easier to accomplish. Also, the EQ engine doesn’t have to be altered in any way, since it is simply the area that restrict the mouse movement within the visible (zoomed or not) range.
Yes, that´s how it has been at least until V6 and according to the C6 manual it is still that way. But I´m sure JMCecil will tell us how it works…
Well, it makes smaller value increments than normal in relation to the same mouse movement. You can simply try it. ( But only works in the slider area of the EQ window (- or generally with any fader), not in the EQ graph - at least until JMCecil tells us how).
I don’t know if that is possible, but considering the input in the thread, I would say that it is not. But I do agree that it would be nice if you could, per channel if possible!
Take a look at EQuality http://dmgaudio.com/products_equality.php (click on the product image to zoom in), to the right of the display, there is range slider… that would be awesome. In cubase, the slider at full range it would be +/- 24 dB (behave just like it currently does) and when lowered, it would be scaled accordingly.
Yeah DMG EQuality is great I hear…a lot of ppl’s fav EQ along with Sonalksis & the FabFilter. I love the huge display of Fabfilter and the cool shelves in Sonalksis. FabFilter’s db span will automatically change as u start drawing bigger cuts/boosts. I think it starts off around +/-6db and, as u drag a filter up/down, it will expand…super cool. If u reduce the boosts/cuts I’m assuming the db range shrinks as well. I like what ur saying about DMG EQuality’s slider bar though…maybe I’ll give the demo a shot.
Then something is wrong with the way you have your PC setup.
In Cubase, holding down shift will move (horizontal) sliders in smaller increments, it will move (vertical) faders in smaller increments, and it will rotate knobs in smaller increments, both clockwise and counter. Been this way in v2, v3, v4, v5. If this is not what you are seeing, you have PC issues.
It’s not odd; that is the way it’s supposed to work.
